The Weather shield shed range - The multilayer build process is detailed below. Each layer adding strength and protection.
Stage one, Framing - We use 3x2 treated timbers for the floor joists and walls and 4x2 timbers for the roof joists.
Stage two, OSB - 11mm OSB (oriented strand board) is secured to the timber frame adding strength and stability to the framework.
Stage three, Membrane wrap - Wrapping the structure in a Vent 3 membrane makes it 100% watertight.
Stage four, Air gap - 2x1 roofing battens are fixed to create a gap between the external cladding and the main structure allowing the build to breathe.
Stage five - External cladding - The first line of defence against the weather. Thick 19mm Shiplap,
Log lap or Tongue and groove cladding is fixed to the laths. All three cladding options are full pressure treated.
Roof covering. - EPDM Rubber roof - Nothing works better than a rubber roof. Glued and bonded to the roof, an EPDM rubber roof doesn't crack split or shrink. We are that confident in the rubber roof we give a full 10 year guarantee.
The result, Is a strong hand built shed or workshop that will stand the test of time, no matter the weather.
