Roofing

Tongue & groove is the cladding used for the roofing, our experts rate this the best form of roof material and is the only type we’ve found on same-size garden storage [5]. This roofing material is used on 5% of all garden storage analysed, and 10% of the top 10% of garden storage. Out of all 6′ x 3′ garden storage we find this is actually the only one to use a tongue & groove roofing.

A 11mm thick roof boarding was used on this garden storage which is an about average thickness used for a roofing material out of 3 thicknesses identified on same-size garden storage [6]. It’s used on 1% of all garden storage with a further analysis of the top 10% of garden storage (96 in total) showing us that none of them use a roof of this thickness. Our data on all 6′ x 3′ garden storage shows us this is the only one to use a 11mm roofing solution.

Mineral felt is used as the roof covering. Our experts say it’s one of the best roof covering materials, and is also the only kind identified on same-size garden storage [7]. It comes fitted on 6% of garden storage and used on 29% of the top 10% of 6′ x 3′ garden storage. While the Expert Score of the average mineral felt covered 6′ x 3′ garden storage is 6 points higher than this item (75 vs the average of 81), you can be sure it’s not the roof covering bring the score down as this one of the highest scoring roof coverings found on 6′ x 3′ garden storage. 14% of 6′ x 3′ garden storage (2 in total) make use of a mineral felt material as a roof covering.

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 garden storage that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

1. Untreated: Any wooden structure that is left untreated will have its lifespan dramatically shortened. This is especially the case with Douglas fir or European softwoods such as Whitewood (spruce) or Redwood (Pine), most garden buildings sold in the UK are made from such wood.

The Wood Protection Association says that “the risk of attack increases significantly if the moisture content of wood, for any reason, rises above 20%” they also talk about how more lower durability cuts of wood (known as sapwood) are getting used to build with than in years gone by. They also say that “sapwood on the other hand is a source of food for many species of fungi and insects and is always vulnerable to attack.” This risk is particularly prevalent with European softwoods.

The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) and BS EN 350:2016 (this advises on methods for determining and classifying the durability of wood and wood-based materials against biological wood-destroying agents) says the natural durability class of such European softwoods is between 3 and 5. With class 3 listed as moderately durable, class 4 listed as slightly durable and class 5 listed as not durable. All three classes have a service life of less than 15 years in a frequently wet environment (such as a UK garden). Yet the application of a preservative treatment or modification of lower durability species is designed according to BS8605 part1 (this is the British standards specifications for external timber cladding) to extend service life to 15/30 years or more.

Having a wooden garden structure supplied as untreated is relatively rare. The vast majority of wooden buildings are supplied with some form of basic treatment, usually a short term water based dip treatment. If you buy an untreated wooden building/structure then we strongly advise that you treat it annually with a solvent-based wood treatment. For full penetration it requires 2-3 coats. It is also recommended that you treat the inside of the structure as well.

If you are wanting something that will require much less maintenance throughout the products life cycle then we would strongly suggest looking at something that is pressure treated also known as tanalised timber.

By correctly treating timber you can take a sub 15 year service life for a not very durable European softwood and extend its service life to 15/30 years or more according to the Timber Decking and Cladding Association
