Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this shed fairs across the market.

Cladding

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

The tongue & groove cladding(walls) used here is the best form of construction for shed walls out of the 4 types [3] we’ve identified on same-size sheds, that you’ll also see getting used on 35% (1,543 of 4,360) of all sheds analysed [4], as well as being used on 21% (92 of 436) of the top 10% of sheds [5]. You’ll also find the tongue & groove cladding showing up on 35% of 6′ x 6′ sheds (110 in total) [6], and if we compare this item against those 110 we find it’s Expert Score is 7% higher than the average score for a 6′ x 6′ tongue & groove shed.

The walls are 12mm thick and we rate this the best thickness out of the 10 found on same-size sheds [7]. It is used on 54% of all sheds [8] and is also used across 58% of the top 10% of sheds [9] we analysed. 60% of 6′ x 6′ sheds (189 in total) use 12mm thick walls [10], and if we compare this item against those 189 we find it’s Expert Score is 5% higher than the average score for a 6′ x 6′ 12mm shed.

This roofing material is used on 1% of all sheds analysed, and after looking top 10% of sheds (436 in total), none of them make use of this roof material. Out of all 6′ x 6′ sheds we find this is actually the only one to use a mineral felt roofing.

A 12mm thick roof boarding was used on this shed which is one of the best thicknesses used for a roofing material out of 12 thicknesses identified on same-size sheds [12]. It’s used on 29% of all sheds and 48% of the top 10% of sheds. 28% of 6′ x 6′ sheds (87 in total) use a 12mm thick roof boarding, and when taking the average Expert Score of those 6′ x 6′ sheds (92), the 8ft x 6ft Pressure Treated Tongue And Groove Apex Shed is just above the average with an Expert Score of 95.

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. 

2. FSC Certified Timber: The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation that is “dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.” When you see the FSC certification it means the forest where this wood was sourced from is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity, while ensuring it sustains economic viability. FSC-certified forests are managed to strict environmental, social and economic standards. FSC certified timber is comparable to Certified Timber
