1. BillyOh Expert T&G Reverse Apex (Price: £1,219)

BillyOh Expert Tongue and Groove Apex Workshop
BillyOh Expert Tongue and Groove Apex Workshop

What separates this shed from the reverse apex workshop is the style of the roof. Unlike a reverse apex, where the two slopes of the roof fall down to and away from the door, an apex roof slopes down to either side of the door. So side-to-side for an apex roof and front and back for a reverse apex.

This means that the internal height of the BillyOh Expert Tongue and Groove Apex Workshop makes it perfect for storage, or as an area to pursue DIY projects – anywhere that you want to move things in and out of (or to store tall items upright).

You can even increase the life of this model with optional pressure treatment. By introducing preservatives and chemicals to the timber in a vacuum, they can penetrate deeper than surface-level dip-treatment. In turn, we can offer our BillyOh 15-year guarantee against rot, decay, and insect infestation on our pressure-treated sheds.

Making your garden shed more weather-resistant for longer can also save you money on things like sealant and wood treatments down the line.

Available with several customisable features, including windowed and windowless options, the BillyOh Master T&G Apex Shed is an awesome storage building. With its robust and durable construction and range of optional extras, this shed is all about providing your family with a dependable storage shed for years to come.

The Master is built with endurance in mind, mostly thanks to its hard-wearing tongue and groove construction. T&G panels are excellent for providing weather resistance, keeping rainwater out, and creating a strong interlocking join.

You can even choose to have the flooring pressure treated or to opt for a thicker T&G cladding if you want to better insulated and prevent your shed floor from things like rising damp. This option is also ideal for storing heavier items.

Best Garden Sheds: Metal Sheds

Unlike their wooden counterparts, metal sheds don’t require a great deal of post-construction maintenance. A light scrubbing and dusting when dirt and dust begin to collect should more than suffice, saving you heaps of time in the long run.

That’s why we just had to include some metal sheds on our list of the 9 best garden sheds for 2021. Listed below are our best-selling metal sheds.

In terms of garden storage, the BillyOh Cargo Pent Metal Shed is an incredibly useful and practical option. 

And, available in either dark green, dark grey or light green and finished with a modern pent roof, this is a metal shed that’s still big on aesthetic value.

A sizeable garden storage solution that’s ideal for tools, equipment, and even bikes – the Cargo pent can handle all your storage needs.

Plus, a pent roof allows for excellent water runoff and no collection of debris which could cause undue pressure on your roof. If you live in an area of the UK that gets snow, this is the perfect choice for you.

Built from easy-to-assemble panels, you (and a friend) can simply follow the instructions that come with your order and have your Cargo shed up in no time. Once erected, maintenance will be at a minimum thanks to the hot-dipped galvanised steel which is highly resistant to rust and corrosion.

Undoubtedly the most popular type of garden shed, wooden sheds have been a staple of gardens for years, thanks to their multi-purpose use and classic look. Listed below are some the most important wooden shed advantages:

  • Traditional aesthetic.
  • Wooden sheds are multi-purpose. Easily used as either a DIY workshop or a storage area.
  • Highly customisable. Wooden sheds can be painted and modified to suit your personal preferences.

Metal garden sheds have seen a serious rise in popularity over recent years, thanks to their sturdy nature. Here are some of the best reasons to buy a metal shed:

  • A budget-friendly, affordable option.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • Durable. Perfect for heavy-duty DIY.
  • Virtually maintenance-free.

Plastic sheds are the ideal choice for those seeking a low maintenance, yet highly practical garden shed. Here are a few of the biggest advantages of plastic sheds:

  • Highly portable and easy to build. You’ll have little difficulty in moving a plastic shed from one area of your garden to another.
  • Long-lasting and durable, thanks to the impermeable nature of plastic.
  • Multi-functional.

In general, as long as your proposed garden shed isn't:

  • Taller than 2.5m (within 2m of a boundary)
  • Larger than 50% of your garden
  • Two-storeys

Then your shed should fall under your ‘permitted development’ rights. Still, these may vary and it’s a good idea to check with your local council. For more, check out our guide to garden shed planning permission.

Insulating a garden shed can help to regulate its ambient temperature and prevent damp and ultimately, rot. Insulating can include anything from caulking and using a draught excluder to installing a vapour membrane as you build your garden shed. For more, check out our guide on how to damp proof and insulate a shed.

If you’ve bought a wooden garden shed, chances are you’ll have to install shingles or roof felt. Felting your garden shed’s roof will help prevent water ingress and damage. So for more check out our guide to felting a shed roof.
