What are the added security options?
A five lever mortice lock, padlock or a door alarm can be added to any of our ranges at an extra cost.
Many customers also choose the option to have their shed bolted to the ground with a ground bolt or a security anchor and cable lock.
What are extra underfloor bearers?
All Garden Shed Co products come with strong joists as part of the floor - however we strongly recommend a set of extra under floor bearers which fit under the floor and across the joists, raising the shed by about 1 1/2 inches. This helps to protect the floor by keeping it clear of any damp or wet and so preserves the life of your shed.
What are opening cottage style windows?
Garden Shed Co offers an option of joinery made windows that open. The cottage style windows feature criss cross spars to give a country cottage feel. You can view a picture of them in our gallery.
My old shed needs removing - what can be done?
Garden Shed Co can dismantle and remove your old shed. The shed must be empty and any electrics or plumbing disconnected. The service is offered to remove the (wooden) shed only, not household rubbish or contents of the old shed. You can add this option as you order your new shed.
The area where I want my shed isn't level, what can I do?
If you cannot prepare your own solid level base why not take advantage of our base laying service? Prices include sand, cement and flag stones (but not removal of rubbish) and you can add this option as you order.
If the area where your shed is to be installed is solid but uneven, you may require a sub frame which will provide a level platform onto which the shed can be erected. The subframe product can be seen on the downloadable brochure and can be added to your order via our sales office on 01206 580 367.
