How are your sheds manufactured?
Himley Garden Buildings only supply quality hand crafted sheds. We do not use any mechanical production processes which allows us to ensure every join fits exactly and every panel is cut exactly to size.
Can I design my own shed?
Yes, if there is a specific feature you require of your new garden building that is not satisfied by our product range then we are always happy to discuss a bespoke shed design. Simply fill out our bespoke shed enquiry form and we will reply as soon as possible to discuss it further.
What is the difference between loglap and shiplap?
These are types of cladding. Each strip of cladding is 125mm wide. Loglap cladding is 25mm thick. In comparison Shiplap is thinner at 16mm.
What is the difference between Apex and Pent wooden sheds?
These are styles of shed roof. An apex roof is raised in the centre. This makes the standard roof shape. A Pent roof is generally flat and slopes towards the back of the shed.
What guarantee do you provide with your summer houses?
Do I need planning permission?
Generally speaking there is no need for planning permission when you commission a timber sectional building however there are exceptions to this rule and it is the customer's reponsibility to ensure that is is not required so please check with your local council before ordering a garden building if you are unsure.
Are your structures weather proofed?
Shiplap buildings are sprayed with a weatherproofing base coat. The building will then need a further coat once construction is finished and annually thereafter.
How can I tell if my garden is suitable?
The site for your garden building should have a firm, level base. While it is possible to make adjustments for slightly undulating ground we can make no guarantee that a building can be erected on a sloping gradient. If you would like to find out more about compensating for uneven ground please contact our sales staff.
