What makes a 4Life Shed™?


25 year life anti-rot guarantee, as standard. More timber. Super strong modular panels. Security enhanced & highly adaptable. Better protected. Longer lasting. And a joy to build, behold and enjoy. You'll only ever need one shed with a 4Life Shed™.

1. Metal Roof Truss Brackets

Larger apex models feature a metal truss bracket that adds strength to the roof and ensures best alignment.

2. High Quality Roof

The roof is made from 8mm OSB and is covered in a durable weatherproof felt. Reflecting the high quality of this shed, the roof is finished with smooth planed barge boards and a decorative finial.

3. Increased Security Windows

Our windows are glazed with shatterproof PET glazing, made from recycled materials, which will not yellow or become brittle over time. PET is more robust than the styrene used in standard sheds.

4. Pressure Treated Fully Modular Panels

Pressure treatment forces preservative deep inside the timber. The result is long-lasting protection against rot and fungal decay. There is no need to re-treat EVER, saving an estimated £200 in time and treatment costs compared to dip treated sheds. Fully modular construction - same size panels are interchangeable. You can choose the window and door placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design. 

5. Thick Timber Framing & Overlap Cladding

The design of our sheds feature more extenisve framing than standard sheds (30% more framing). This results in a more robust build. 7mm straight edge overlap cladding provides consistency and strength as well as providing the traditional style we all know and love. The high-quality cladding means the panels are less likely to warp or develop gaps.

6. Hidden Hinges

Our doors are fitted with hidden security hinges, the hidden hinges cannot be tampered with from the outside.

7. Robust Doors with Double Z Framing

Our doors feature double Z bracing for extra strength, security and to prevent the doors dropping. This is superior to the basic ledge bracing on standard sheds.

8. Secure Door Latch Plate Fastened

The doors are fitted with a hasp and staple closure, ready for you to add a padlock (padlock not included).

9. Solid Wooden Floor

Strong 14mm pressure-treated boarded timber floor. This wooden floor is built to withstand storage of heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor is far superior to the OSB that comes with standard sheds.

Highly Adaptable



Fully modular panels mean that the same size panels are interchangeable. 

You choose the window and door placement that suits your garden.

Modular panels are easier to handle - meaning sheds are quicker and simpler to build. 

Flexible Window Panels

Window panels can be interchanged with other panels of the same size and can be placed on either side of the shed - you can choose the window placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design. See the example of the 8x6 Apex Shed above. The Apex Shed can also be turned into a Reverse Apex Shed.

Flexible Door Positions 

Doors can be fitted in different ways to suit your needs. Single doors can also be hung to be left- or right-hand opening.
