Pressure treated overlap sheds

Why choose a pressure treated shed?

The defining feature of pressure treated sheds is their impressive 15 year guarantee against both rot and fungal decay. This guarantee is not subject to any sort of retreatment, which will save you time and money. With a pressure treated shed, there is no need to complete the arduous annual task of re-coating your shed with wood preservative, you can be confident your shed is as well protected against the elements as ever. Furthermore, although initially slightly more expensive than dip treated alternatives, pressure treated sheds are more cost-effective long term as you won’t have to purchase tubs of wood preservative every couple of years.

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

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!
