Shiplap sheds are both air and watertight, and are the best way to keep your tools and equipment safe and dry. A premium construction method, each tongue and groove board is shaped to assist water runoff and because the boards slot together, they not only keep the wet out but they prevent draughts too. Shiplap is also an attractive look which is traditional with contemporary vibes, especially when you apply a tasteful coloured wood treatment. If you’d like to know more about this construction method, please take a look at our guide to the difference between shiplap and overlap sheds for all the info you need. For more information on the different sheds available here at Waltons, please also check out our in-depth guide to buying a garden shed.
Choosing a shiplap shed
All Waltons sheds provide a high level of protection against the elements, but it’s particularly worth investing in a shiplap unit if you intend to store more valuable items – especially those which might be susceptible to damp and cold draughts. We offer these sheds in a wide range of sizes ranging from a 3x5 ft mower store right up to a cavernous 16x10 ft building. Ideal for a wide range of uses, including hobby rooms and garden workshops, our shiplap sheds offer a great combination of quality, affordability, and versatility.
Benefits of Tongue and Groove
When we talk about the advantages of tongue and groove construction, we’re comparing this method of fabrication to the other way we build our sheds – overlap timber. Both types of shed use the same materials – FSC-certified timber with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, and both are built to a high standard at our manufacturing facility here in the UK. Tongue and groove is the more complex way of manufacturing sheds and results in panels with greater rigidity, impermeability, and, ultimately, as long as you take good care of your shiplap shed, longevity.
From windowless sheds to workshop sheds with reinforced floors and even a potting shed/storage shed combo, our shiplap construction method has something for everyone. Here at Waltons, we pride ourselves on the versatility of our offering, which is why we supply these sheds with your choice of both apex and pent roofs and gable and side entrances featuring either single or double doors. In many cases, we even offer a choice of where to position your windows. When you order from us, you’ll also have the opportunity to choose from a wide selection of add-ons, including factory-applied paint finish, roofing material upgrades, ready-built shed bases and even a full home-installation service.
