At Sergeants we only use quality scandinavian 19mm (3/4”) tongued and grooved weatherboard which is 58% thicker than 12mm! This ensures greater protection from rotting, splitting and warping and therefore has a greater lifespan.
The frame quality is one of the most important elements in constructing quality sheds and summerhouses, again Sergeants only use quality scandinavian timber which is planed all round with the corners rounded. Our framework increases in size from 64mm x 38mm (2 1/2” x 1 1/2”) to 152mm x 51mm (6” x 2) as the building size increases, as you would expect! However most manufacturers just have a standard size off framework. This increase in size of framework ensures structural stability throughout.
Our sheds come standard with a high quality italian heavy duty green mineral felt and summerhouses come standard with a torch-on polyester felt which has a 30+ year life span
Our summerhouse doors are made onsite from solid redwood using mortise and tendon joints, this ensures better quality control of another aspect of our buildings. Most manufactures just use half-lap joints which make the doors narrower, not as strong and very prone to warping
The manufacturing & construction process at Sergeants is of the highest quality in every aspect. A family run business with 80% of our employees working for us for 20+ years which ensures our very high standards are maintained.
