Building on a Sound Foundation
Our premium quality specification includes:
Your Beautiful Shed comes with a solid floor as a standard that is made with 18mm Top Quality Marine grade plywood to British Standard 1088. A coat of ** LifeTime® Wood Treatment is used to provide an extra level of protection. The plywood is fixed to bearers 150mmx100mm that are vacuum/pressure treated with TANALITH preservative to comply with Treatment Code TE/GFb for in ground contact to provide a 15 year service life. Following treatment, any areas of treated timber revealed by cross cuts, holes, notches are also brushed liberally with an end-grain preservative treatment.
You will need to provide a level, flat surface for us to install your shed on. This can be a concrete pad, gravel or compacted stone for instance and should be slightly larger than the base of your shed.
** LifeTime® Wood Treatment is supplied by Valhalla Wood Preservatives and has a long history of use in Canada but is now available in the UK. It is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Independent laboratory testing confirms that LifeTime® Wood treatment creates no harmful residue in soil or water. The ingredients are a closely guarded family secret but they are known consist of naturally occurring plant and mineral substances that penetrate the wood fibres to provide long lasting protection.
