Description

This 6x8 Overlap Pressure Treated Reverse Apex will provide you with a secure space to keep bikes, tools, garden furniture as well as many other essentials, all without breaking the bank.

The 6x8 Overlap Pressure Treated Reverse Apex Shed has been designed differently to the traditional style apex shed, by reversing its build so that it is wider than longer siting the door and window in the side elevation. This will suit some gardens better than others and sits well especially up against walls and fences.

The 6x8 Reverse Apex Pressure Treated Shed is constructed using 8mm squared edged overlapping timber allowing rain water to run off yet allow some movement. The square edged overlap board cladding is fixed to 28mm x 28mm framing to give the shed its core structure and stability.

Pressure treated by the manufacturer a process that forces a preservative into the timber that creates a strong resistance against harmful rot and fungal decay. This adds long lasting protection to your shed and means you will not need to spend any additional time and money re–treat your shed during the first 15 years!

The apex roof is made from 10mm OSB solid sheet board supported by sturdy battens and topped with a black sand felt to protect and finished with smooth planed barge boards and decorative finals.

The single opening door features extra diagonal framing hung using hidden security hinges and screws provided. The door can be locked shut via the hasp and staple provided using a padlock (not included) There are two single unbreakable Polycarbonate windows in the front gable which are UV stable unlike some cheaper alternatives and also fixed using security screws.

Assembly of the 6x8 Overlap Pent Pressure Treated Shed is incredibly easy and will be completed in only a few hours thanks to the simple instructions and no need for complex tools.

  • 15 year guarantee against rot
  • No need to retreat, saving you time and money

Shed Base Options

Wooden Shed Base

Wooden Shed Base Kit

As an alternative to laying slabs or concrete, this shed base is a faster, more cost effective DIY solution suitable for use on uneven ground.

The wooden shed base consists of a pressure treated framework and galvanised steel spikes. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years. Galvanised steel spikes are then secured to the framework. They are designed to sink straight into the ground, so installation is simple and quick.

 

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 8x6 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 20 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.

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!
