Longest Side in Feet. Shortest Side in Feet. Area in Feet. Waney edge cladding is the most rustic of cladding that you can get. It is boards as they come direct from the log, at the sawmill.

No planing and very limited if any cutting. Examples of 'waney edge' shed cladding boards This type of wood is most often a surplus cut when the sawmill is cutting logs to create beams.

The very first slice is discarded though I have seen these used and the next slice is about 20mm thick and varying widths, though on average about mm. The wood for waney edge cladding is generally quite green too, so it will season on the shed in-situ. Boards are overlapped and the arrangement is a bit of an art. Each board is a varying width and so selecting the right board to overlap with the one above and below is a bit of an art.

A range of timbers are available. Oak, sweet chestnut and larch are commonly used naturally durable timbers. Elm was historically used as cladding for barns. Even though it is not classed as a durable timber it did last a long while. Featheredge cladding has an undeserved reputation as a low quality option for cladding a shed. In its cheapest form it is a very thin narrow panel that is used on a similar fashion to those on a fence, like the section on the left in the image below.

These type of feather edge are quite thin typically 12mm down to 4mm. And can suffer from distortion and warping due to their small section size. Typical sizes of feather edge cladding Larger featheredge boards are and mm in width. These are much thicker and so the timber tends to move less. As you can see from the picture below the mm wide feather edge board is much thicker than the wide board. To ensure that the timber cladding is as weather tight as possible the boards are overlapped like fish scales.

The recommended overlap is 40mm for mm boards and 50mm for the mm boards. This accommodates any expansion and contraction in the boards and gives the cladding some resistance to wind driven rain. Featheredge siding is at the more rustic end of shed cladding.

It is most often supplied with a rough sawn finish. For some this is seen as a benefit as the cladding tends to be cheaper and it doesn't lose any of its thickness through the planing process. This profile has a very similar appearance to feather edge. But it has been planed on both sides so has a smooth face. Also rather than boards being nailed over the top of one another, leaving a gap behind each. This cladding section has a groove that has been machined in the back which means the back side of each cladding board is in line.

An example of rebated, planed face, tapered cladding 4. Shiplap shed cladding Ship lap shed cladding gives a more finished look than feather edge. It is machined so that the boards overlap and that front and back faces are in the same plane.

Examples of the range in sizes of shiplap cladding The dimensions of shiplap cladding can vary considerably as you can see in the picture below. The characteristics of ship lap are that there is a rebate rabbet on the bottom edge and a slightly sinuous curve at the top of the board. The rebate and curve add together to enable a relatively straightline to the front and back of the cladding. Log lap is a more recent development of ship lap. It has a curved outer face combined with the rebate at the bottom and projection at the top.

The overall effect is to create the visual appearance of a log cabin made out of logs, but with a fraction of the timber. Two types of log lap cladding. One with a simple rebate and the other interlocking In my view log lap cladding looks a bit fake and to get that effect you have to waste a fair amount of the timber to create that external curved profile. But it is quite widely used, so someone must like it! Tongue and groove boards are a step further along the line of weatherproofness.

Whereas the featheredge and ship lap just overlap each other. With tongue and groove shed cladding adjacent boards interlock so it is more weather tight and resistant to warping than ship lap. Two contrasting sizes of tongue and groove cladding 7. PMV Planed, machined with V joint Channel cladding This section is similar to tongue and groove but has been slightly more machined. Rather than the simple V joint between boards with the TGV cladding the PMV channel cladding has a flat section as well between the boards.

This creates a 'shadow gap' which gives a slightly different appearance than the plain TGV boards. PMV channel cladding Also as the joint is slightly more open there is less of an opportunity for water to rise into the joint, or be retained there by capillary action.

Both edges of the board are machined at an angle so that water is actively drained away which wouldn't happen if they were cut at 90 degrees. That gives you a good overview of the different shed cladding profiles that are available. There are variations in the different shapes that are made from area to area and also between countries.

These cladding profiles are just shapes, lets now move on to the different species of wood that these profiles are made from. Choice of timber type along with the section profile is another way that you can significantly affect the cost of your shed cladding. For example you will find that planed and profiled oak shed cladding is one of the most expensive materials out there. But if you really would like your shed to be clad using a species such as oak, a good looking and durable timber, then perhaps using rough sawn feather edge or waney edge boards would be an alternative.

There are cladding profiles made from tropical timbers such as Sapele. However it is my view that we are cutting down these forests and then transporting the timber vast distances when we have so many excellent timbers on our doorstep.

I encourage you to be kind to the earth when making your shed and make one factor in your choice of shed cladding material be that which has the least environmental impact. The Forestry Stewardship Council runs an accreditation scheme that tries to ensure that best forestry practices are followed. One final point there are lots of more in depth analysis of the strength, durability, density of each species on learned sites such as TRADA , but these don't consider our tiny little niche of making our sheds weathertight.

So read on for more about my thoughts on which species of timber you might choose to clad your shed. European redwood is often described as pine and is often used as shed cladding on mass produced sheds.

Plain untreated wood is used for some shed cladding which then needs painting or staining with a preservative to protect it from the elements.

Average 4. Don't forget, you can change any part of your shed, we've just started you off with the typical Beast Shed set-up! Wanted a strong multi purpose shed so I went for a 12x10 beast shed and I could not be happier.

Excellent materials should last me years. Very good shed. Solid and dry. Nice colour, too. Assembled quickly. Delivered on time. Company easy to work with.

Even our neigbour loves it! We reviewed a number of shed options at other sites. The Beast Shed came up as the best value for money for a robust, good quality shed, and we were able to choose a custom size and height to fit our garden perfectly.

The ordering process was straightforward and efficient. I was given a clear delivery date in 2 weeks time. I was given a confirmation call to check everything was in order. The shed was delivered on time, assembled efficiently in the correct place.

I was given a chance to review the shed to check there were no issues with it prior to confirming I was happy to finalise paying. The shed was exactly as specified on the website, and of excellent quality.

I was given appropriate aftercare instructions. Bought a Beast shed as it going to hold my precious cargo of mountain bikes. Impressed with the thickness of the timber frame and panels. I would like to say I have dealt with many firms on the nett and I would like to say that your firm Is the best and the goods are exerlent. Very solid we'll made and nice to look at Inside is very nice space well built and the men that came to put it up are very nice men and polite.

My garage was a general dumping ground. So what was the answer? I considered a garden shed, but I wanted something which was substantial, and solidly built. I visited a number of dealers and was surprised that even a flimsy shed was fairly expensive. I wanted a substantial shed with solid walls and roof. One which didn? I searched the internet and found Beast Sheds. These sheds are not especially cheap, but I have concluded that you get what you pay for.

I completed the online order form. This allows you to design a shed to your own preferences. Approximately 2 weeks later, I got a message stating the beast shed was ready to be delivered. The shed was quickly erected with screwed together sections. I was short of time so I wanted a "turn key" service with the minimum of effort from me. That is exactly what I got. Specified the shed on the easy to use web-site and placed the order.

In no time at all I was the proud owner of a security shed made and assembled exactly to my requirements.

The ordering was very easy and delivery was quick. On the day the fitters arrived on time, were very pleasant and efficient. One hour to put up the shed - in a difficult location. Quality of the shed is second to none and is definitely a Beast of a shed. I would use this company again and do not hesitate to recommend them.

The whole purchase process was simple, with great customising options. The delivery was quick, and the build was quick and painless for me! With a small garden I could only have the 6x4, and I opted for the Beast version after much thought. So glad I did, it's better built than my house! After I installed a cheap metal standing shelf unit fitting perfectly to the right of the door, and a movement-sensitive led solar light on the inside it's perfect for accessing all my 'junk' at any time.

I've even got space to store all my recycling clutter, garden charis, table and parasol. All stayed completely dry in the horrendous wet and windy spell.
