FAQ’s

Here are a selection of some of our most frequently asked questions. We have spilt them up into three categories Sheds, Fencing and Decking.

SHEDS
The difference is in the type of timber used. The Rustic shed is constructed with rough 10mm overlap boards with a 16mm butt jointed roof and floor. The Delux shed is constructed with 22mm kiln dried planed weather sheeting with tongued and grooved roof and floor. Due to the nature of the timber the Rustic Shed is more prone to dampness in wet or very exposed conditions.
You need a clear level site and unless the shed is erected on a patio or tarmac some 4″ solid concrete blocks. The number of blocks depends on the size of the shed.
The average time is a week to ten days. We will contact you the day before delivery with an approximate time of arrival. It is possible to pre book delivery for a specific day. We do not deliver on a Sunday or on Bank Holidays.
Your shed is treated before it leaves the factory. We suggest that you treat the shed again within six months of purchase and every two years thereafter. Ronseal Fencelife is the brand that we recommend but you will find many good proprietary brands in your local hardware store.
Pressure Treated Timber has been C. C. O. treated. This treatment is absorbed into the timber and is very long lasting. The treatment means that minimal further maintenance is required. The timber is a light colour and develops a hint of green with age.
Yes. We require a drawing of your requirements and a 50% deposit.
Yes. The materials and workmanship are guaranteed for one year.
Yes. Brown galvanized box profile roofing. Price depends on size of shed.
If we are informed in advance of the access problems, in most cases, we can make the shed in smaller sections which will go through a house assuming there is a straight run through the house. This will incur a surcharge as the shed is more complex to manufacture and it takes longer to construct.
Yes. Pressure Treated Sheds are a very pale green colour. The standard shed colour is brown. Forest Green is also available but incurs a surcharge as these sheds are hand painted. Please contact a sales representive for pricing information.
We ask for 10% deposit with balance payable on delivery. We accept most standard forms of payment. If you are not available to meet our delivery staff, a premarked site and prepayment will be sufficient to ensure delivery and erection.
Fencing
Unless the fencing panel is pressure treated we recommend you treat your panel every two years with Ronseal Fencelife.
All panel sizes are metric so when a panel is described as 6′ x 6′ it is actually 1.8m x 1.8m. All panels are 1.8m in width and .6m, 1.0m, 1.2m, 1.5m and 1.8m in height. Panels can be made to specific sizes should a customer so require.
Yes. Once you know your requirements just contact our office and we will be happy to deliver the goods you require. Payment must be made in advance and there will be a delivery charge. Please note that all deliveries for supply only are delivered to the front garden only : we do not carry goods into the back garden.
A panel that offers less resistance to the wind is best in these conditions. Cottage panels or Hit & Miss panels are good options as they allow the wind through while providing privacy.
Yes. We will supply and fit fencing. We can provide an approximate costing over the phoneand we can arrange for our representative will call and discuss your requirements. Lead time is generally about two weeks. Erection of fencing is only available within the Greater Dublin area.
Decking
Pressure treated softwood is the standard timber that we use in our decking. We also offer the alternative of ribbed or smooth decking timber.

The decking timbers are 95mm wide which means that for every meter in width you will need approx. 10 decking timbers. Alternatively it is three decking timbers to every foot width. Joists or supporting timbers underneath form the framework and they should be placed at 400mm intervals to support the floor.

Example: 3.6m x 3.6m deck laid over existing patio or concrete area

Framework: 4 no. 3.6mts 150mm x 35mm or 100mm x 35mm (depending on height off ground)

Floor joists: 9 no. 3.6mts 150mm x 35mm or 100mm x 35mm

Decking Timbers: 38 no. 3.6mts 95mm x 35mm

4 boxes 4mm x 60mm Screws

If you are laying the deck on grass you will need to sink posts into the ground to act as a base.

Timber is a natural product which reacts to changes in temperature and climate. As it ages hairline cracks may develop in the timber. This is a feature of pressure treated timber and in no way affects the life span or strength of the timber.
Yes. There are various proprietary brands that are suitable. These can be used to change or enhance the colour and protect the timber against the elements.
