Description

A substantial addition to your garden the 12x8 Double Door Overlap Shed will easily accommodate all your garden storage requirements. Featuring double doors for easy access makes this shed suitable for storing larger items or perfect for use as a workshop or hobby room.

Manufactured from FSC certified timber from sustainable sources the 12x8 Double Door Overlap Shed is a solid construction made from square cut overlap timber board for excellent water run off and also allowing flexibility and movement. Additionally the timber is dip treated and guaranteed against rot for 10 years, provided that the shed is kept isolated from ground contact and is regularly retreated with timber preservative.

The 6 windows in the 12x8 Double Door Overlap Shed are all made from unbreakable Polycarbonate that will allow in plenty of extra light and they will never become yellow or brittle, and are fixed in place by security screws. The shed doors are braced with double “Z” framing and have safe and secure hidden door hinges with a plate hasp and staple latch.

The roof is finished in a weatherproof black sand roof felt constructed from durable sheet material and the floor is a hardwearing sheet material floor as standard. Creating a shed that is robust, durable and secure.

  • 10 year guarantee against rot
  • Unbreakable Polycarbonate windows with security screws
  • 6 inch higher eaves than most other shed brands
  • Strengthened door with extra diagonal framing
  • Hidden door hinges and hasp and staple latch for extra security
  • The barge boards are manufactured from smooth timber
  • Thick roof battens to provide additional strength
  • 8mm overlap cladding, 8mm-10mm solid sheet roof and floor and 28x28mm framing
  • And finally we have added a finial on the apex sheds simply to make them look better!

Shed Base Option

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 12x8 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 10m pea gravel per square (gravel not included). Each square is 500 x 500 x 50mm. This pack contains 40 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.

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?
