A shed however has a high flexibility, as you can transform it into a comfortable  tea house, barbeque site, or a place to pursue your indoor hobbies. It is a fascinating garden feature that enhances its aesthetics with a very traditional British appearance.

What Is a Garden Shed?

A garden shed is a small structure that provides storage space in your garden. It is usually placed behind your house or in a far proximity to it. It is a solid, versatile  and fully enclosed built structure that can be used for any storage purpose you may need. There is a wide range of garden shed types available you can choose from, each with its own characteristics and benefits.

Garden Sheds by Material

Depending on its used material, a shed can be wooden, metallic, plastic, composite lumber, polyvinyl or steel-framed plastic.

Wood

Wooden sheds are undoubtedly the most common garden sheds. This is because they are the easiest to customize by adding shelves, decorations and painting. Wooden sheds come in a wide range of designs, sizes and roof styles. Furthermore, wooden sheds alloy well with nature, making the environment around look more natural. However, wooden sheds require a lot of maintenance, since they are prone to termites and mold.

Metal

Metal sheds can be made out of steel or aluminium, and are known for their high durability and low cost. They are a perfect choice for places like London with lots of rain and high humidity. Metal sheds can endure even the most extreme weather conditions, providing a safe storage place for your valuable tools. Some of the advantages that metallic garden sheds have include: durability, sustainability, low-cost, low-maintenance, recyclable and resilience to fire, rot and pests.

Plastic

Plastic sheds are widely used nowadays, due to their ability to withstand the elements. They are lightweight and don’t require a solid base. Plastic garden sheds usually include a plastic floor, windows, lighting and vents.

Composite Lumber

Composite lumber sheds are constructed using a combination of different materials. The most typical ones are wood fibres, recycled plastic and a polymer binder. They are affordable, portable, and require low maintenance.

Polyvinyl

Polyvinyl sheds are usually used by individuals with small storage needs. They are versatile, affordable, easy to customize and rot resistant. However, polyvinyl garden sheds are not fitting for places with harsh weather conditions, and cannot store heavy equipment.

Steel-framed Plastic

Steel-framed sheds are constructed using a combination of metal and plastic. They are durable and affordable structures that include a solid base, steel frames and plastic walls.

Garden Sheds by Roof Style

Garden sheds come in different roof styles including lean-to, gable, gambrel or flat.

Lean-to

Lean-to style garden sheds are perfect for storing hay, feed and other farm equipment. They are more affordable than garages and provide a covered area for storing items and equipment.

Gable

Gable style garden sheds are one of the most popular roof types with a variation in shapes, sizes and materials. This design is very complementary to the other designs that surround the environment. Furthermore, they provide great protection against the elements, as this roof style prevents the accumulation of rain and snow.

Gambrel

Gambrel style garden sheds are often called “barn” sheds due to their resemblance to old-fashioned barn. This roof style is mostly used by individuals who like a more country-style look and it makes a great addition especially to farmhouses. Gambrel shed roofs provide the opportunity to install additional shelves or build other storage units, due to their steep slope.

Flat

Flat style garden sheds have a flat roof with no horizontal slope. They are quite simple, cheap and rather easy to construct yourself. However, flat roofs lack the ability to drain the rain and snow during the colder seasons, as they don’t have a slope.

Importance of Having a Garden Shed

If you own a considerable garden, then having a garden shed is a necessary investment for you. Their primary use is to store the working equipment. However, it can also be used as a workplace or store other equipment that you don’t want to keep inside your house. Garden sheds create an organized space for you to work and move in your garden. Here are some of the benefits of having a garden shed:

Garden Storage

One of the most obvious benefits of having a garden shed is providing extra storage that you may need. It is beneficial especially to individuals that do a lot of work in the garden. It makes a great storage unit for gardening equipment such as rakes, shovels, hedge trimmers and edgers. Garden sheds are a perfect place for you to store other gardening items such as solid and fertilizers. Garden sheds are also very versatile and increase the functionality of your garden space. You can add shelves, s-hooks and pegboards in order to make the space more organized and look aesthetically pleasing.

Workplace

If you are a person that likes to keep yourself always occupied with work, garden sheds can be a great solution for a workplace. You can have the comfort of working in an enclosed and safe  space, while having all the equipment that you need in a close proximity.

Added Value

Building a garden shed can easily add the value of your property. If you have a lot of gardening and extra equipment that you can’t keep inside your house, having a garden shed is a great investment to keep your garden area clean, organized and increase the overall value of your property.

Keep the Clutter Away

Garden sheds are very beneficial to homeowners that have a lot of equipment around and don’t like their garden area to get overcrowded with working tools. It can create a lot of space for you to move around, and enjoy the pleasing environment of a clean and organized area.

Aesthetics

Having a small and beautiful garden shed in your backyard, creates a very special feeling about it. For most people, the functionality of a shed makes them purchase one. However,  having a decorated shed with the right style can actually add value to your property and makes it a comfortable place to enjoy living in.

Key Considerations When Building a New Garden Shed

Are you considering building a new garden shed on your property? Garden sheds come in a wide variety of sizes, styles and qualities. Here are some key considerations you may need to look up when building a new garden shed:

Know Your Budget

Before building or purchasing a garden shed, you need to consider the price of materials and if you want to add any customizations. Knowing your budget makes it easing for you to determine the size and quality of the sheds that are available to you. Sometimes, we aim to get a bigger shed with a lower price. Although it may seem like a great deal to us, low quality gets pricey over time, as they can create leaks and require constant maintenance. For this reason, it is very important to know your budget and other factors such as your local climate and how it can impact on your sheds’ materials.

Identify Storage Needs

Before purchasing a garden shed, you should think of the storage space that you will use, and for how long you may need it. Consider what you want to customize and how you can make your shed more spacious. Think also of the items that you want to store and how much space they take. Identifying your storage needs allow you to save time and money by building a garden shed that fits your requirements and needs.

Choose the Right Materials

Building a garden shed for a specific purpose necessitates finding the right materials. One of the most crucial characteristics of a shed is its durability, which will be determined by the materials that are used. There is a wide variety of materials that can be used to construct a garden shed, such as wood, plastic and steel. A wooden shelter for example will last for a very long time, but it is susceptible to rot. Plastic sheds are low maintenance but are known to fade over time, whereas steel sheds are economical and long-lasting.

Weatherproof Your Garden Shed

Weatherproofing your garden shed is one of the most important things that you should consider. Obviously you will want your shed to last for a very long time. The locations where individuals construct their sheds may be prone to harsh weather conditions. Having a weatherproof shed means you will not need to continuously worry about its condition, and it will require less maintenance and last for a long time.

The Foundation of Your Garden Shed

The foundation of the garden shed is one of the most essential things to consider. It maintains the shed’s stability and shields it from ground moisture. The type of foundation you construct will depend on the dimensions of your shed and the climate in your region. Many individuals will attempt to construct a shed on concrete pavers, which is acceptable if the shed is small and the pavers are set on a properly prepared base. However, in the case of a wooden garden shed, wood should never touch the concrete base, in order to prevent ground moisture.

Your Garden Shed’s Roof Style

Always consider weather elements such as rain and snow when deciding on a roof style for your garden building. An angled slope roof will allow rainwater to run off efficiently, but it may not be suitable for heavy snowfall, particularly if your shed is not heated. Metal roofs typically discharge snow more efficiently than concrete and wooden roofs. However, you can choose a roof style of your liking if the location of the structure is safe from harsh weather conditions.

You will be able to visualize the output of our work before we even set a nail. Here are the steps of our building renovation process:

Consultation

Every Daja Contractor garden shed building project begins with a detailed conversation. During this conversation we will be able to understand exactly what kind of garden shed you need and your requirements for the final output. Our specialized designers will provide relevant ideas that you might not have considered. Daja Contractor Ltd strives not only for professional work, but also for the total satisfaction of our clients. Building a garden shed usually needs permission by the local building authorities. In this case, we can obtain all the necessary permits from the local building authorities for you.

Area Preparation

After the consultation, our team will come to observe the building area first handedly and make sure everything is in line with our building process. We will outline the garden shed’s foundation space, level the ground in case it is needed and remove all the stones and weeds from the area.

Building the Foundation

Weather elements such as snow and rain can cause your garden shed to rot and warp  with time when exposed. Building a strong and solid foundation will prevent this from happening and ensure that your garden shed can resist for a long time. Our team will make sure that the foundation will be solid and of high quality.

Flooring Installation

After the foundation has been finished, we will start installing the flooring. Our workers make sure that there are no open spaces between the foundation and the floor as it can cause warping with time.

Walls Installation

After the flooring has been installed, we will assemble and install the walls on the base. We ensure that the walls are as tall as per your requirements and the materials used are of high quality.

Roof Installation

After the walls have been installed, we will start to install the roof. As mentioned above, we offer a variety of roof styles that you can choose from. Our roofs are modern, stylish and with quality.

Exterior Cladding

After the structure is finally standing, our next step is to trim the rough structure with a beautiful palette that will make it look shiny and appealing. This is always something that you can choose, from adding exterior components to painting it in a color that you fancy. Our team will first cover the beautiful structure with a good claddering to ensure that your new garden shed will be weatherproof during the harsh weather conditions.

Aesthetics

During this phase, most of the job has been finished and we will add the final touches. Planting the roof, adding hangers, pegboards, shelves or decorative elements not only makes your work in the garden easier, but it also adds to the overall value of your property. We will then remove all the rubbish caused from work and dispose of it at the nearest waste management area. Everything will be neat and clean when we finish.
