The Waltons 8ft x 6ft Waltons Shiplap Pressure Treated Apex Wooden Shed is a high quality garden building that provides a secure storage space. To offer the best protection from weather damage, this garden storage shed has been made from pressure treated timber. The timber has been placed into a vacuum and compacted with a high quality timber preservative to ensure this shed offers many years of service.
This wooden shed has been constructed using 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding for a durable build. Shiplap cladding features an interlocking design and a curved profile which prevents water ingress. Thick 2” x 1” interior framing supports the roof, floor and walls for strength and security, keeping the whole shed stable. The floor and roof of this garden shed are made from sturdy solid sheet board material, ideal for storing general gardening items. Floor bearers are included with the garden storage shed to support the solid sheet board floor and raises the building from the floor, helping to prevent damp rising up into the timber.
Featuring a traditional apex roof, this wooden garden building will suit gardens of all styles. Roof felt is supplied with the wooden garden shed to create a waterproof barrier, protecting against rot and weather damage. Two shatterproof styrene windows allow natural light to filter into the wooden shed for easy storing. Shatterproof styrene glazing is a much safer alternative to traditional glass glazing, suitable for allotments, and gardens with young families and pets. A large single door provides access to the storage shed and features horizontal bracing for support. A turn button is supplied to keep the door closed.
Our pressure treated buildings come with a 15 year anti rot guarantee* and offer a high level of protection against weather damage, rot, decay and insect attack. For maximum protection, once installed we do advise applying a waterproofing treatment to your garden building to prevent water ingress. All our buildings also include a 1 year manufacturer's guarantee* as standard.
Pressure Treated Buildings
Modern pressure treating techniques are environmentally friendly, using water-based treatments. However gloves should be worn when handling the parts/assembling the garden building.
Pressure treatment is different to externally applied preservatives and top coat treatments. Chemicals are impregnated into the fibres of the wood under pressure. This is done prior to assembling the building at the factory. By fixing chemicals into the wood, pressure treating offers protection against insect attack, chemical attack and natural decay. This treatment gives the wood a green colour. The building should also be treated with a waterproofing topcoat. While the effectiveness of the treatment does not alter without a top coat, the colour does change over time, and that nice green shade will soon turn grey.

15 Year Anti-Rot Guarantee
Our Pressure Treated Garden Buildings come with a 15 year anti rot guarantee. Pressure treating is a chemical process which helps to protect wood against rot and insect damage. There are many different treatment solutions, the most common chemicals used to pressure treat wood are Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ), Copper Azole (CA), and Micronized Copper Quaternary (MCQ).
Safety: Always wear gloves, eye protection and a dust mask when handling wood. Due to chemicals in pressure treated wood, never burn its sawdust or scraps; instead dispose in a landfill.
In order to keep your building looking great, it will need re-treating at least annually. Always use a high quality waterproofing topcoat, applied in accordance with the the manufacturer's instructions. If left untreated the colour will fade from green to silvery grey in approximately 6 months. For more information please refer to the Waltons T&C's.
1 Year Manufacturer's Guarantee
Subject to the conditions set out in the T&C's (Section 8) the Seller warrants that the Goods will correspond with their specification at the time of delivery and will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 12 months.
We want you to enjoy the use of your new garden building for many years. To give you the best chance of doing so, your product needs protecting at the start and maintained during its life. If you're planning a DIY project, please read our Self-Installation & How to Build a Shed advice pages before you start.
All long-lasting garden buildings will have been built on a solid and level base, either concrete, slabs, a wooden frame or ground level bearers. A flat, level base is essential, for more information go to our How to Build a Shed Base guide.
If your garden building is not level and square when built, it will twist and warp with the natural movement of the wood. The first signs of this are when the doors or windows stop opening and closing properly. You may get issues with the roof and potential gaps in the panels which will allow water in, there may be flex in the floor and probably creaking. Check your base is level in both directions and adjust prior to the build. It will be really difficult to adjust afterwards.
Our styrene windows are protected using a clear film which will need to be removed after you've installed the building.
All Waltons shed windows are designed to fit well, but over time and with the movement of wood, small gaps can appear. Help to prevent this by sealing your windows with a silicone sealant. You can do this either when you build your shed, or add it to an existing one. We've created this video Protect Your Shed - Silicone Window Sealant for guidance.
We've also created these handy Maintenance Guides to help you make the most out of your building, for years to come. Should you require any further advice, you can contact our Customer Service Team on 0800 029 1000 and select Option 3.
