David Coton reviews the Easy-Fit 6ft x 4ft that has been added to Forest's impressive range of garden sheds, a compact storage unit that is much easier and quicker to install than any shed of the same size.
Like all Forest products, the Easy-Fit 6ft x 4ft shed is designed and built to the highest standards in the UK using FSC timber. The difference is that 12mm polypropylene is used for the roof instead of wooden boards.
Boards tend to be tricky to fit, so replacing them has the effect of reducing the time it takes to build by about a third.
Instead of having to be cut and nailed, the dual sheet polypropylene panel can be simply lifted into place by one person and secured to the roof beam with screws.
Felt would also have to be replaced time and again adding expense, but polypropylene is UV and weather resistant even in high winds and will not degrade, crack or tear.
The cladding used for the shed is attractive and rain repellent overlap timber which allows for natural movement and has been dip treated to prevent rot. It can be stained or painted as you wish.
Bearers supporting the pre-fitted floor are pressure treated against rot and the shed can be located directly onto paving slabs, decking, patio or gravel base.
Entry to the shed is through a single door that is braced for strength and fitted with a hasp & staple. The lack of windows offers further security for any item stored out of sight inside.
With a ten year guarantee and Forest's usual impressive specifications, the Easy-Fit 6ft x 4ft shed is compact and very practical, and now boasting the added advantage of a maintenance free quick to fit polypropylene roof.
