Our verdict on the Adley 7′ x 5′ Overlap Pent Shed

The Adley 7′ x 5′ Overlap Pent Shed comes with a pent style roof; holds a 10 Years guarantee; fit with single doors; is treated using a dip treated process [1]; and makes use of made in the uk, certified sustainable materials. The windows window used on this particular 6′ x 4′ use a styrene [2] glazing material (Thickness was not specified).

Base material: timber

Our experts say this has 1 stand out feature. A stand out feature is something found on over 70% of the top 10% of products in a particular category or is an exceptionally good feature as rated by our panel of experts.

1. The mineral felt roof covering found on this shed is rated to be one of the best by our experts.

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

Cladding

The overlap board cladding(walls) used here is the worst 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 8% (357 of 4,360) of all sheds analysed [4], as well as being used on 3% (12 of 436) of the top 10% of sheds [5]. You’ll also find the overlap board cladding showing up on 19% of 6′ x 4′ sheds (69 in total) [6].

The walls are 8mm thick and we rate this an about average thickness out of the 12 found on same-size sheds [7]. It is used on 1% of all sheds [8] and is also used across 1% of the top 10% of sheds [9] we analysed. 1% of 6′ x 4′ sheds (4 in total) use 8mm thick walls [10].

Roofing

Osb is the of construction method used for the roofing, our experts rate this one of the best forms of roof material out of the 3 types we’ve found on same-size sheds [11]. This roofing material is used on 18% of all sheds analysed, and 8% of the top 10% of sheds. While you’ll find that the Expert Score of this shed is 16 points lower than the average for 6′ x 4’s that use osb roof material (75 vs the average of 91), you can be sure it’s not due to the roofing as this one of the highest scoring materials found on 6′ x 4′ sheds. 19% of 6′ x 4′ sheds (70 in total) use osb construction for the roof.

A 9mm thick roof boarding was used on this shed which is one of the worst thicknesses used for a roofing material out of 12 thicknesses identified on same-size sheds [12]. It’s used on 1% of all sheds with a further analysis of the top 10% of sheds (436 in total) showing us that none of them use a roof of this thickness. 1% of 6′ x 4′ sheds (4 in total) use a 9mm thick roof boarding.

Mineral felt is used as the roof covering, and out of 3 types identified on same-size sheds [13], is said to be one of the best roof covering materials. It comes fitted on 22% of sheds and used on 49% of the top 10% of 6′ x 4′ sheds. Even though the Expert Score of this particular shed is below the average 6′ x 4’s cover their roofs with mineral felt (75 vs the average of 89), with it being on 49% of the top 10%, this should give you confidence in its quality. 26% of 6′ x 4′ sheds (96 in total) make use of a mineral felt material as a roof covering.

Flooring

The manufactures of this shed chose osb for the floor construction, we rate this an about average form of floor construction out of 3 types found on same-size sheds [14]. This type of floor construction is used on 20% of all sheds we analysed, and 5% of the top 10% of those sheds. 21% of 6′ x 4′ sheds (78 in total) use osb construction for the floor.

A 9mm thick floor boarding is used here, this is one of the worst floor board thicknesses according to our experts out of 12 found on same-size sheds [15]. It’s found on 1% of all sheds with none of the 436 sheds that make up the top 10% using a floor of this thickness. Out of all 6′ x 4′ sheds it turns out that this is the only one to use a 9mm flooring.

Window

Styrene windows come installed on this shed. As a glazing option, we rate it the worst out of the 7 glazing types found on 6′ x 4′ sheds [16]. This particular type of glazing is used on 6% of all windowed sheds and 1% of the top 10% of sheds with windows we analysed. 10% of 6′ x 4′ sheds with windows (18 in total) use styrene windows.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £347 with this Optional extra – Add top coat Shetland Shiplap Apex 6′ x 4′ Dip Treated Shed Single Door with Window Top Coat.

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.

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.

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. Dip Treated: Dip treating is a temporary protective base coat treatment that is mainly designed to help protect the building during transit and for around one month after it is assembled. This water-based treatment is the least time-consuming and cheapest type of wood treatment. It involves dipping the wood in a protective water-based preservative and then leaving it to dry. The action of dipping is where ‘dip treatment’ comes from.

A dip-treated garden building is not considered fully treated with wood preservatives; it’s vital to re-treat your dip-treated building, preferably with a solvent-based (or oil-based) wood treatment. Then re-treat it on an annual basis using a solvent-based (or oil-based) wood treatment.

If you don’t want to treat something on an annual basis then a pressure treated wooden building might be a better option, this is where the wood undergoes a process called tanalisation (pressure treatment) during production. This is where the timber is submerged in specialist wood preservatives (such as Tanalith E, this is actually the origin of the word ‘tanalisation’), the wood then goes into a high pressure vacuum tank 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 Wood Protection Association has a good article/video on this. 

2. Styrene (Polystyrene (High Impact) HIPS): Styrene as it is commonly known or High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) is a very versatile form of plastic. It has a very wide range of uses but for garden buildings styrene is typically used as a budget option for windows.

Styrene is a shatter-resistant material, which is why it is ideal for situations where safety needs to be considered, such as playhouses. This benefit can be offset by a few other drawbacks, unfortunately styrene has a tendency to yellow over time (the technical term is Photoyellowing and it is caused by prolonged exposure to UV Light), the degradation of its polymers over time also causes it to become more brittle.

Another drawback of styrene is its thermal coefficient of expansion (it is 80 x 10-6), this is higher than most other glazing options. This means that as the material heats up and cools it can contract and expand more than other glazing options. This cycle can lead to a loose fit of windows over time.

According to data from the British Plastics Fedaration the physical properties of Styrene (Polystyrene (High Impact) are that it is not very good when exposed to high heat with a maximum continuous use temperature of between 60 to 80 °C. This is coupled with the fairly low range the Notched Impact Strength data shows of 10.0 – 20.0 Kj/m².
