Pressure treated timber is a wood preservative that is used to protect wood from rot, decay, and insect attack. It can be used in all weather conditions and has been tested for durability and stability and found to be safe for use as garden sheds.
However pressure treated timber should not be used as structural components such as posts or beams as it does not meet the requirements of Building Regulations (which apply for new buildings).
Robust sheds are ideal for areas that experience high winds, heavy rain and snow. These robust buildings are made from more heavy duty materials such as steel frames, galvanised steel sheets, solid timber walls and roof trusses. They're also built to last and withstand the elements so they will not need replacing after just a few years of use.
Sturdy sheds are made of solid timber and are designed to last. Sturdy sheds are ideal for storing large items, such as lawnmowers, bicycles and more! They come in a range of sizes and designs so you can find the right one for your garden.
The roof of your shed will be exposed to the elements and so it is important that you choose a suitable material. Wooden sheds are popular choices for garden storage because they are robust, sturdy and strong; however they require regular maintenance to ensure they remain in good condition. Pressure treated timber is another option which can withstand harsh weather conditions but does need more care than wood if you want it to last long term.
