Buying a garden shed...points to consider

Garden sheds are ideal for a number of different purposes including storing garden furniture, tools, clutter from your house and using as a workshop or office etc. You may think that choosing a garden shed is an easy task; however there are hundreds of different types and sizes of sheds available and therefore the following points should be considered before purchasing a garden shed.

Points that should be considered include:

  • The material used to construct the shed - will it rot or rust and therefore have to be replaced in a few years. Does it come with a guarantee?
  • Is it difficult to assemble, are lots of tools required?
  • Are all the components included in the shed, such as the floor?
  • Is the shed waterproof?
  • Does the shed require yearly maintenance/treatments?
  • What size shed will fit comfortably in your garden? Will you require planning permission?
