    What Is Cladding Thickness?

    Cladding is the material that makes up the outer structure of a garden building; in other words, the walls, floor and roof.

    The measurements given in shed, summer house and log cabin descriptions, relating to these features, are referring to their thickness.

    This list is by no means exhaustive and different manufacturers frequently develop new ways of ensuring their sheds offer high levels of security.
