Outstanding, our experts say most of the cladding options used are among the best.

You’ll also find the shiplap tongue & groove cladding showing up on 25% of 6′ x 2′ sheds (30 in total) [5], and if we compare this item against those 30 we find it’s Expert Score is 5% higher than the average score for a 6′ x 2′ shiplap tongue & groove shed.

You Might Also Consider

We found 95 6′ x 2′ sheds with comparable specifications. The 6′ x 2′ Forest Large Premium Log and Tool Store has an Expert Score that is 12% higher than average and is £203 less expensive than average. If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring sheds out of the 95 with comparable specifications the following might be of interest.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £50 with this 6′ x 2’6 Forest Large Double Door Pent Wooden Garden Storage Bike / Mower Store Outdoor. It is priced at £200, this is 25% less than this and has an Expert Score of 80, 20 points less than the 6′ x 2′ Forest Large Premium Log and Tool Store.

The 6′ x 2′ Forest Large Premium Log and Tool Store is the best scoring shed available out of all 95 6′ x 2′ sheds we analysed.

High Wind Area – If you live in a particularly exposed or high wind area then having a shed with a thicker cladding and higher than average frame thickness can be preferable. We found at least 3 sheds that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Redlands 3′ x 6′ Shiplap Modular Pent Bike Shed
Rowlinson 4′ x 3′ Windowless Heritage Shed

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 sheds that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Rowlinson 4′ x 3′ Windowless Overlap Apex Shed

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 sheds that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 3 other options that will fill those needs.

1. Pressure Treated: Considered the most durable wood treatment, this is where the wood undergoes a process called tanalisation. This is where the timber is submerged in specialist wood preservatives (such as Tanalith E, this is actually the origin of the word ‘tanalisation’), this is a unique combination of copper and organic biocide ingredients (it is the copper that gives the finished wood the slightly green colour). The wood then goes into a high pressure vacuum tank (the Wood Protection Association has a good article/video on this) to draw out excess moisture and air and force in the preservatives.

This deep penetration of the exterior wood protects it from the elements and all forms of insect attack. Wood treated this way can last many years without being re-treated. The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) says “ penetration to either 6 mm (15 years) or 12mm (for 30 years) has to be achieved in any exposed surface in sawn material.”

It is also worth noting that if cross cutting, notching or boring treated timber during or after installation, ALWAYS apply an end grain solvent-based (or oil-based) wood preservative treatment to the freshly exposed areas, this will maintain the integrity of the protection. NEVER put cut ends in the ground, even if end grain coated.
