The majority of our wooden sheds are dip treated with a temporary water-based treatment, which is red cedar in colour. This is the red/orange colour of the Sheds you will see online. We can supply the standard Sheds without any treatment but this would invalidate the timber guarantee.
We have a Pressure Treated Range of buildings, which are treated with Tanalith-E. These have a pale green tint to the timber as the treatment is a copper-based product designed to limit the chance of rot. The only buildings we supply untreated as a standard are the Log Cabins.
You can order a completely untreated Tiger Shed but this would invalidate the Timber Guarantee we offer.
We do advise that you need to treat any wooden building inside and out with a waterproofing treatment as soon as possible after delivery and annually thereafter. We do offer our own Tiger Sheds Preserver as an optional extra at £18.99 per 5L container and also Cuprinol Garden Shades in a selection of colours at £16.99 per 5L container.
If we didn't build it, we don't sell it. We're proud to say that every garden building is made in our own mill in Leeds. This gives us complete control over the manufacturing, from start to finish, so we can ensure only top-grade timber makes the cut. Our expert craftspeople and precision machinery mean our sheds and log cabins are built to the highest quality – Tigers always stay sharp.
We offer 20-year protection against general timber rot and decay. That said, many people find our sheds last more than 25 years, because we build them to be the toughest around. We treat our timber with a specially formulated preservative, developed over many years – for a weatherproof, lifeproof seal. We call this protective stain our Tiger Skin. It's our iconic mark of quality. It's why, along with our expert 8-point quality check, that spans from forest to factory, you can trust a Tiger to survive.
We’re not afraid to say it – our sheds aren’t the cheapest. But they’re the best value. You get what you pay for. Here are just few of the features you only get with a Tiger:
We only use slow-grown, high-grade FSC-accredited European softwood, sawn in our own mill so we can oversee the quality. Better for you, better for the planet.
