About the tongue and groove wood we use on our garden sheds and the timber we use to construct the frames
We only use the highest quality wood for all our sheds. All our sheds are fitted out in strong and durable tongue & groove or rebated shiplap wooden cladding, and our Tanalised wood treated flooring will withstand rot and heavy duty use, so you can be sure of the quality of our buildings.
On our timber sheds, we allow the choice of the sheds cladding treatment and framework strength. All the cladding is done with the best tongue & groove wood available and the timber used for the framework is of the highest quality and durabilty! To cater for a wide range of uses you can choose from dip treatment or tanalised (pressure treated) wood throughout your shed and increase the framework where required!
The general sheds (our Standard Garden Sheds) are clad with 16mm (planed to 12mm finish) tongue and groove wood. The Tanalised Garden sheds are clad with 16mm (planed to 12mm finish) rebated shiplap cladding.
The strongest sheds (Beast range) are clad with 25mm (planed to 20mm finish) rebated shiplap wood.
All the wood we use for our general garden sheds and security sheds is a sturdy 38mm x 50mm. The security sheds also have extra wooden framework applied in various places to give more strength.
We use 3" x 2" planed wood for our strongest sheds framework. It is actually the same wood that is used in house framework so you can see it a very durable and robust option for sheds that are used to store heavy equipment or will be put under agressive use!
We have two different processses on how we treat the wood cladding & framework timber for your shed:
For maintenance free wood, choose Tanalised. See how the wood tanalising process works.
All our wood is dip treated as standard. See how we dip treat our wood.
The first thing to rot on a shed, due to damp ground, will be the floor so a pressure treated one is a must! And we provide a Free, rot-resistant, pressure treated floor with every shed, along with that we provide pressure treated wooden floor runners across all ranges, prolonging your garden sheds life!
As standard, we supply all our sheds across the board with a Tanalised wooden floor at no extra cost! This is because we know from experience the first thing to rot on a shed will be the floor. Once the floor is rotten it is almost impossible to treat and repair it, so your shed will lose its rigidity and eventually need replacing. An untreated flooring will often rot easily and quickly due to being placed on damp ground or just from being weathered. But don't worry, Easy Shed's flooring will last as long as the rest of the shed!
Not only is our flooring damp-proof, it's strong too! We provide 20mm wood on all standard garden, security sheds and Beast shed ranges. The strength of the flooring is also improved by our runners, which are screwed to the underside of the floorboards. You can even add extra runners if you are storing exceptionally heavy goods! We stand by the quality and strength of our flooring so much we did a test, please view the video of our truck driving over our flooring and then see how our competitors flooring stands up!
