Why do you need a garden structures specialist to put up your shed?

You may have considered building a wooden structure in your garden. Perhaps you want a small garden shed for storing your tools in, or a workshop made from wooden sleepers that you can use to build furniture, or a man cave, outdoor study or additional living area. Or perhaps you aren’t looking for anything like a shed, but are in the market for a new fence, trellis, gate, pergola or gazebo. Maybe you even want some decking put in!

Whether you need help putting up a flat-pack shed or want a fully custom-made building designed specifically for you, a wooden garden structures specialist can help.

What does a wooden garden structures specialist do?

A wooden structures specialist will perform a variety of tasks, but their primary responsibility is designing, delivering and installing a bespoke wooden building. Wooden structures specialists are more than carpenters who can assemble flat-pack furniture; they are creative and have a unique eye for design, which they use to design a shed or summer house to your specifications. Their responsibilities include:.

  • Garden structures planning and design: A specialist can ensure that your summer house or other structure is built according to your wishes. While you can choose what your new building will look like, your specialist may advise on the best materials, treatment, finish and overall structure, depending on its intended purpose. They will also advise on the right wall thickness, roof shape, doors, and windows. Your specialist will then draw up a plan or blueprint for your new building and ensure you’re completely satisfied before ordering the materials and moving on to the next phase.
  • Installation: A professional garden shed or wooden structure specialist will then install your building where you want it. They will ensure it’s durable and treat the wood to ensure it can withstand harsh elements, such as wind, rain and frost. This is important to make sure that the wood doesn’t decay over time, so that you can enjoy your building for years to come with little maintenance required.
  • Delivery of the structure: If your shed has been built offsite, as some are, a specialist will deliver it to your home and ensure it is securely installed in your garden.
