Our experts say this has 4 stand out features. 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 tongue & groove cladding used on this shed is one the best available for sheds rated by our experts.

2. The tongue & groove construction like the one used on the roof of this shed is rated one of the best by our panel of experts.

3. A 19mm thick roof construction as thick as this is something our expert rate to be one of the best available on sheds.

4. This double glazed glazing material is one that our experts say is one of the best available for windowed sheds.

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

Cladding

The tongue & groove cladding(walls) used here is the best form of construction for shed walls out of the 2 types [1] 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 [2], as well as being used on 21% (92 of 436) of the top 10% of sheds [3]. While you’ll find that the Expert Score of this shed is 6 points lower than the average for tongue & groove clad 15′ x 18’s (82 vs the average of 88) [4], you can be sure it’s not due to the cladding as this one of the highest scoring materials found on 15′ x 18′ sheds. You’ll also find the tongue & groove cladding showing up on 40% of 15′ x 18′ sheds (32 in total).

Roofing

Tongue & groove is the cladding used for the roofing, our experts rate this the best form of roof material out of the 2 types we’ve found on same-size sheds [5]. This roofing material is used on 34% of all sheds analysed, and 57% of the top 10% of sheds. Even though the Expert Score of this particular shed is 3 points below the average of 85 for 15′ x 18’s using a tongue & groove roofing, with it being on 57% of the top 10%, you can be assured that this is a quality roof material. 69% of 15′ x 18′ sheds (56 in total) use tongue & groove construction for the roof.

A 19mm thick roof boarding was used on this shed which is the best thickness used for a roofing material out of 6 thicknesses identified on same-size sheds [6].

If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring sheds out of the 75 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 £7,102 with this Optional extra – Add top coat Shiplap Mammoth Loglap 12′ x 24′ Shed Double Door with Two Opening Windows Top Coat. It is priced at £597, this is 1189% less than this and has an Expert Score of 82, 0 points equal than the Palmako Andre 4.5m x 5.5m Wooden Garage Up and Over Door.

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 2 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.
