Shed bearers | Pressure Treated
Wooden Shed bearers are used under garden sheds.
Bearers will help protect the floor and lower part of your shed. The bearers are cut from 34mm x 34mm pressure-treated timber frame. Timber shed bearers are compatible with both Apex and Pent Sheds. The bearers are designed to ensure the garden shed is raised off the ground providing airflow under the floor of the building.
This helps prevent rising damp attacking the timbers in the wooden floor and lower part of the shed.
A garden shed will have a longer life when it is assembled on garden shed bearers.
Fully pressure treated these timber bearers provide excellent protection against dampness and rot.
We advise and encourage our customers to buy pressure-treated wooden bearers.

Will I need a Shed Base?
Shed bases (recommended) are used under your shed to protect the floor and lower part of the shed. Timber bearers will support your shed and all the contents of the shed. Pressure-treated timber is used to ensure the bearers will last you for many years protecting them from rot and insect attack. Bearers can be used on a level area made from concrete, paving flags, stone chippings etc. If you are unsure please check with us.
Every garden shed will be treated free externally with a solvent base timber preservative. From customer feedback we have kept the colour a light golden brown so each customer can apply a further coating of timber preservative onto their shed with a colour of their choice. It is important to treat your garden shed with the correct timber preservative once the shed has been installed. Timber preservative. Please read the tin to ensure that the preservative you buy is for exterior planed timber. View our after-care information here.
What is an anti-cupping tongue & groove board and why we use it?
The timber used for this for this type of board is typically taken from a higher grade of timber. During machining grooves are cut on the underside of the timber board, which helps the timber board from becoming cupped across the grain, so it stays flat. These boards feature an expansion gap to minimise warping and to compensate for heat and moisture. Our long-term relationship with Scandinavian timber mills enables us to use this type of board in our garden buildings.
Why is this a.c.t.g. board better than other boards used in the manufacturer of garden sheds?
