The 8x6 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.

Manufactured from square cut overlap timber boards affixed to ample framing allows for flexibility and movement and also aids rain water runoff. With a hard wearing sheet material floor with pressure treated bearers supplied as standard and a roof made from durable sheet material topped with black sand felt and finished with smooth planed barge boards and final, this 10x6 Overlap Dip Treated Apex Shed is designed to last and look good in any garden.

The door has safe and secure hidden hinges with a plate hasp and staple latch and braced with double “Z” framing for added strength and security. The 2 windows are made out of unbreakable Polycarbonate that will never become yellow or brittle over time unlike some cheaper alternatives and fixed with security screws as standard.

The 8x6 Overlap Dip Treated Apex Shed is guaranteed against rot and fungal decay for 10 years as long as it is sited on a suitable base and re treated with a timber preservative every couple of years. The timber is FSC certified from sustainable sources.

Assembly is incredibly easy and will be completed in only a few hours thanks to the simple step by step instruction, fixtures and fittings provided.

  • 10 year guarantee against rot
  • Unbreakable Polycarbonate windows with security screws

  • Strengthened door with extra diagonal framing
  • Hidden door hinges and hasp and staple latch for extra security

Dip treated sheds

Why choose a dip treated shed?

Dip treated sheds are economical as well as long-lasting; these garden sheds are perfect for those in search of a cost-effective storage solution for gardening tools, equipment, and outdoor toys. At Buy Sheds Direct, our dip treated sheds boast substantial 10 year guarantees against both rot and fungal decay. Our sheds are built to last. All that’s required by way of maintenance is a coat of high-quality wood preservative once a year. Coating your shed with a wood preservative isn’t as arduous a task as it seems either; the process takes an hour or two, and can be quite therapeutic. Plus, a coat of treatment will rejuvenate your shed, keeping it looking fantastic and good as new for many years to come.

To ensure maximum security, durability, and robustness, our Forest branded sheds are equipped with a number of other important features. For instance, hidden door hinges and a hasp and staple are used to provide extra security; the windows are made from unbreakable polycarbonate and attached with security screws; and the doors are strengthened with additional diagonal framing. Furthermore, the eaves height of the sheds is 6 inches greater than most other brands, providing maximum storage space.

So, why not take a look at our brilliant dip treated sheds today? And, remember, our friendly, UK-based customer service team are always happy to help should you have any questions about any of our products.

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

Our Sheds

Our dip treated sheds are dipped in an anti-fungal solution treatment, providing short term protection. Therefore, they do not need to be treated for the first 12 months and come with a 10 year guarantee against rot when supported with annual retreatment.

Competitors' Sheds

An initial water-based treatment has been applied to protect the timber from mould for approximately 3 months. It is recommended that the wood be re-treated on installation and every year thereafter.

Dip Treatment Process Explained

Dip treatment is a tried and tested method of applying wood preservative to timber products, and the process is fairly straightforward. First, the timber is dipped into a cylinder containing a powerful wood preservative. The preservative is then absorbed into the surface of the timber and, after it’s removed and left to dry, it will be thoroughly protected it against both rot and fungal decay.

After the dip treatment process is completed, the timber will have a lovely orangey-brown hue, ensuring it will become an attractive feature of your garden, as well as complementing most fence panels. Of course, you can choose to stain your dip treated shed another colour upon assembly. If you’re interested in an affordable, practical, and sturdy dip treated shed, why not take a look at our featured products below?
