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.
20 Year Guarantee
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.
Uniquely protected to stand the test of time
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:
Thicker wood cladding: Ours is 9mm (overlap) and 12mm (shiplap tongue-and-groove). Both far thicker than the industry standard.
Thicker frames: At least 44x28mm – twice as thick as others. Because thicker frames mean tougher sheds.
Fully-boarded roof and floors: Using flakeboard (OSB) chipboard would be cheaper, but it would also be more likely to rot and sag. So, we don't
Rounded-corner frames: Rough cut frames are prone to warping, splitting and giving splinters. So, we take the time to round each one.
Higher roofs: Tiger's don't stoop so our roofs let you stand tall – even our eaves are a healthy height.
Pre-hung doors: You can put up your Tiger without hanging around.
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.
