Metal & Plastic Sheds, Long Lasting, Maintenance Free Outdoor Storage Buildings
As we reach the later weeks of summer, we reflect on the season and consider so many of our pleasurable moments in the warmer temperatures. We remember the lovely periods of settled warm weather, which have enabled us to spend more time in our garden. While looking at all the trees, shrubs and plants blooming at different times we also notice the heavy growth of moss in our lawn and the abundance of garden slugs, which have done their best to cause us distress by their mere presence and their voracious appetite for many of our favourite flowers and plants! It is suggested that the very wet winter has been the cause of the exaggerated presence of these pests.
Our timber sheds and fences have also come under more severe attack, even during the summer months, from invasive moisture and fungus. As there are increasing numbers of gardeners who spend less time on maintenance of their sheds, they begin the inexorable process of rotting! That is one reason why we have seen over recent years, increasing sales of metal and plastic products, which are moisture and rodent resistant.
Comprehensive Range of High Quality UPVC & Steel Outdoor Storage Sheds, Garages & Workshops
SM GARDEN SHEDS started life as an importer and distributor of one range of metal garden sheds. The relationship with the supplier of this range remained for over 30 years until they were taken over by a much larger concern who thought they could get away with charging the same prices for an inferior product. The quality of the steel diminished in terms of thickness and coating resulting in rust appearing very soon after assembly. Before we were able ‘to stop the rot’ many caravan sites and other coastal locations, in particular, saw their relatively new green sheds turning brown!
Regular visitors to this website will have read many references to our drive for ‘value’ from the products we offer. However this does not extend to the lowest possible threshold of quality performance. Needless to say, this original supplier is no longer associated with us.
In the intervening years, having identified the path to follow, we have built an offer of metal and plastic storage products, which enable us to claim that we are the best in every category.
Hot Dipped Galvanised Steel, Low Maintenance Metal Garden Sheds & Storage Boxes
Metal Sheds - At the top end there is the BIOHORT range of metal garden sheds and storage boxes. Hand made in Austria, this product combines quality, style, and security. The best sellers here are the Storemax and Leisuretime Boxes. For 2015 there are new models on the way in the smaller storage category. The new HIGHLINE as well as the established AVANTGARDE and EUROPA models continue to remain popular. Football clubs and social organisations are particular purchasers.
LOTUS, newly introduced, will become a significant addition to our flagship and extensive range of CANBERRA sheds. The EMERALD range has made significant gains with the additional Anthracite colour finding popularity.
Double Skinned, Steel Reinforced Plastic Sheds & UPVC Outdoor Storage Buildings
Plastic Sheds – The best quality range with double skinned, steel reinforced sheds and storage products from LIFETIME were introduced in mid 2013 and are rapidly confirming their presence. From the original selection of sheds and storage boxes, during 2014, we have added a variety models, all of which have exceeded sales forecasts.
The DURAMAX range is popular across many retail outlets. This steel framed, PVC clad construction is extremely effective and over 10 years we have established a strong following for this product. We have the advantage of being closely associated with the distributors who retain the expertise and support.
Ventilated, Condensation Resistant, Value For Money Garden Storage Solutions
These metal and plastic storage solutions are, therefore, establishing an increasing presence as a substitute for timber. Their attraction is their resistance to erosive elements and the lack of maintenance required.
All the models offered by SM GARDEN SHEDS include some form of ventilation, usually in the gables. We also provide detailed recommendations when buildings are placed on a concrete base, foundation kit or timber base. If the shed sits on a base, which incorporates a damp proof membrane, the moisture that is often the cause of the condensation cannot escape into the building.
With advances in their cosmetic appearance, properly constructed metal and plastic buildings on a prepared base provide a real and positive alternative to the ‘traditional’ garden shed, garage and workshop.
