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.
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 is where you will really save on time and money. With a pressure treated shed, there is no need to spend precious time on the annual task of re-coating your shed with wood preservative. Furthermore, you won’t have to keep purchasing tubs of wood preservative, brushes and drop cloths. You can be confident your shed is as well protected against the elements as ever.
At Buy Sheds Direct, our Forest branded pressure treated sheds have a number of other 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.

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.
Timber is loaded into chamber and a vacuum empties timber cells of air.
Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.
Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.
Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.
Timber draws in surface excess of preservative under low pressure, then is left to dry.
