You shouldn’t underestimate the importance of a quality shed. It needs to serve several purposes, protect your valuables inside and last for a lifetime, so we strongly suggest choosing your shed provider wisely and investing in a quality space that will stand the test of time. We work with several great suppliers when we build sheds and direct clients to suppliers we know and trust to get the best results.

Here are our tips on what makes a good quality shed. 

Shed Structure and Siding

This is the most important factor in the quality of any shed. Its structure and sides will determine how robust it is, whether it will stand the test of elements and how long it will last. Whether the shed is built from wood, metal, or any other material, it should be durable, withstand heavy rain, and be low in maintenance. It should be protected from the elements with good-quality paint.


Whether your shed is built from timber partially or entirely, you need to pay attention to the quality of the wood used. It can determine its longevity and how long your shed will stand. You must look for treated wood that’s well-handled and used for your shed. It’s also weather resistant and more durable. 


The quality of the roof is another crucial factor to consider. Besides the shed’s appearance, its roof must be highly functional against the rain, as it’s the first to take on this element. Needless to say, it needs to be waterproof and with watertight finishings. 


Solid foundation and top-quality flooring materials should come with your new shed. Avoid untreated wood, as it will not last for wear and tear. Your shed should also have a solid foundation, so ensure it’s included in it. 

Doors and Windows

Your shed needs to be secure with doors and windows that are robust and durable. The doors should be large enough to carry things through. The materials used should not rust or stop working properly over time. Doubled-glazed aluminium (or similar) joinery can add that extra protection to your doors and windows. 

Shed Customization

Finally, it’s crucial that you can customise your shed to suit your unique requirements. Choosing a company that can offer options to help you create your dream shed is the key.
