Description

The12x8 Overlap Pressure Treated Shed, a fantastic workshop that offers plenty of space for storage as well as storing mowers, tools and other essentials.

The 12x8 Overlap Pressure Treated Shed is manufactured from solid 8mm square edged overlapping timber boards ensuring the rain water will run away and allow for movement. They are fixed to 28mm x 28mm framing also pressure treated to provide a guarantee against rot for fifteen years. This means that unlike other dip treated sheds there will be no need for annual re treatment to support the guarantee saving you hours of time and potentially hundreds of pounds in treatment.

There is easy access through the double doors that now feature greater diagonal bracing, secured using hidden security hinges with security screws and can be secured with a padlock (not includes) through the hasp and staple latch. In addition the six windows (can be featured on either side) are glazed with un breakable Polycarbonate windows which are UV light stable and also fixed with security screws. Security really has been built in to give you peace of mind.

The floor is made from 16mm boards and supported by pressure treated floor bearers to take the weight and the roof is made up of 8mm OSB boards with upgraded framing to support and finished off with black sand roof felt.

Assembly of the 12x8 Overlap Pressure Treated Shed is surprisingly easy with simple step by step instructions, fixtures and fittings provided.

  • 15 year guarantee against rot
  • No need to retreat, saving you time and money
  • 6 inch higher eaves than most other shed brands
  • Timber boarded floor and a strengthened door with extra diagonal framing
  • Hidden door hinges and hasp and staple latch for extra security
  • All fixtures, fittings, felt and simple instructions are included
  • 8mm overlap cladding, 8mm - 10mm solid sheet roof and 28x28mm framing
  • Thick roof battens to provide additional strength
  • With smooth timber barge boards and we have added a finial on the apex sheds simply to make them look better!

Shed Base Option

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 12x8 plastic shed base kit is ideal for avoiding the hassle of laying slabs or concrete when preparing a base for a new shed. Its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it provides a very strong and durable base for the shed. Made from 100% recycled plastic, this shed base is eco-friendly. Also, it can be reused if the shed is repositioned. The base allows for ventilation and drainage under the shed, helping to keep the shed floor dry.

To install the base, simply interlock the square grids together and lay onto a firm, level area of ground. We recommend using 15kg of 10mm pea gravel per square (gravel not included). Each square is 500 x 500 x 50mm. This pack contains 40 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.

Pressure treated overlap sheds

Why choose a pressure treated shed?

If you’re looking to purchase a new shed and can afford just a slightly higher initial spend, buying a pressure treated shed will save you a lot of time and money in the long term.

At Buy Sheds Direct, our Forest branded pressure treated sheds have a number of features to ensure maximum durability and security; including boarded wooden floors as opposed to OSB; security door hinges; a hasp and staple or mortice lock; and so much more.

Don't be fooled by cheap imitations. Buy a shed to last a lifetime!

Our Sheds

Pressure treatment (treatment is impregnated into the wood). No need to re-treat EVER, saving an estimated £200 in time and treatment costs.

Competitors' Sheds

Light coat of dip treatment, which means you’ll need to re-treat immediately and then re-treat a minimum of every year. So add approximately £25 on top of the price of the shed when comparing costs and 4 hours of your time per re-treatment.

Pressure Treatment Process Explained

The Pressure Treatment process for timber has been applied to products for a number of years; the key benefit of this process is that the preservative is forced under vacuum pressure right deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure. The preservative becomes an integral part of the wood; giving a long life and protection against rot.

This process also means that you never have to apply preservatives to your garden shed, and it allows the natural colours of the timber to show through and so your shed blends easily within your garden. Surprisingly, our Pressure Treated Sheds are only slightly more expensive than our Dip Treated Sheds.

step 1 Vacuum

Timber is loaded into chamber and a vacuum empties timber cells of air.

step 1 Flooded

Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.

step 1 Pressure

Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.

step 1 Vacuum

Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.

step 1 Dry

Timber draws in surface excess of preservative under low pressure, then is left to dry.

NO NEED TO RE-TREAT - SAVING YOU TIME AND MONEY!
