    Shed & Fence Treatment (5L) - Dark Brown -

    £14.49

    Our Shed and Fence Treatment in Dark Brown is very easy to apply and extends the life of the timber. This resin enriched timber preservative is suitable for rough sawn or smooth planed timber.

    This timber treatment is quick drying, low odour, fade resistant and water repellent. It offers an opaque matt/satin finish but allows the texture of the wood to show through. Please note: if used on smooth planed timber, the resulting colour may be paler than if used on rough sawn timber. Two coats are therefore recommended for best results for smooth planed timber. The treatment contains special colourfast pigments which bond to the wood ensuring lasting beauty.

    One 5L supplied. 1 Litre will cover 4-8 square meters if one coat applied.

    Brushes and splashes can be cleaned with water. It is harmless to plants and pets when used as directed.

    Also available in Harvest Gold.

Description

This compact 3x5 Dip Treated Overlap Shed is a convenient storage solution that is ideal for decking, patios and small gardens.

The 3x5 windowless shed has been constructed to a high standard using timber chosen for its excellent properties. The timber of the shed has been slow grown in sustainable European forests and has then been saw cut into overlap cladding which gives you fantastic results without breaking the bank.

The shed gains its strong nature due to the robust timber that has been used to create the frame, cladding, roof and floor. The strong core frame allows the overlap cladding to be fixed to it and provide a weatherproof build that allows you to store your items with peace of mind from danger.

The shed features a traditional apex roof which means storing long handled tools is easy as well as extra head height inside. The roof and flooring have both been made with OSB board which is an 8-10mm thick. The floor is supported by pressure treated floor boards for added strength and longevity. Felt is not included with this shed but can be purchased as an optional extra.

The single door features a turn button closure that will keep it shut. If you need to add a padlock, we recommend selecting a shed with a hasp and staple closure or adding your own after purchase.

This shed is dip treated providing it with a 10-year guarantee against rot and fungal decay, when supported by annual retreatment.

  • Dip treated timber offers a 10-year guarantee against rot when supported by annual retreatment
  • 6 inch higher eaves than most other shed brands
  • The barge boards are manufactured from smooth timber
  • Thick roof battens to provide additional strength
  • 7mm overlap cladding
  • 8mm-10mm solid sheet roof and floor
  • 28x28mm framing
  • Single door with turn button closure

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?
