Choice of Timber Cladding
Choose between redwood, pressure treated, cedar, heavy duty redwood or heavy duty pressure treated. The redwood cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), are pre-treated with a water based preservative inside and out before it leaves the factory. The pressure treated cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), has a long-lasting treatment forced deep inside the timber giving the timber an attractive green hue which complements gardens well. We can also provide this building in a 23mm pressure treated Barnstyle which is an attractive and practical timber with an over-lapping cladding effect.The Western Red Cedar is a beautiful and versatile timber which produces its own natural oils and preservatives making it a durable and rot-resistant species of timber, perfect for a garden shed. Also available is clear Western Red Cedar, this has been treated with a clear preservative, showcasing the timbers' natural colouring and grain.

The Malvern Stanford with Greenhouse, is a hybrid shed/greenhouse building that fits a Niche in our product range.
Solving the dilemma of needing both a greenhouse and a shed, the Malvern Stanford with greenhouse is designed to fit seamlessly with one another for the dedicated gardener. The Stanford shed section provides the perfect storage for all your garden sundries and equipment. While the greenhouse section is where you are able to pot on plants, sow seedlings and grow any number of exotic plants or fruit during the summer months.
The building is available in a variety of timber combinations and finishes and many sizes. The combinations and varieties can be somewhat overwhelming, so please don't hesitate to speak to a member of our staff for help!
On display at our GBC Oxford branch, this Malvern Stanford with Greenhouse, is 6ft x 8ft wide (shed section) with a 4ft x 8ft wide greenhouse section, making the overall size 10ft x 8ft.
This building features Clear Cedar construction, with shelving and staging to one side, guttering to both sides of the greenhouse section and a Chrome upgrade. All Stanford with greenhouses feature full length toughened safety glass as standard.
The greenhouse section is available in 4ft (as pictured), 6ft and 8ft depths and in a choice of pressure treated deal or cedar.
Our standard cladding on Stanford sheds is 12mm deal ( pine ). This is treated with a wash of quality wood preserver both inside and out before it leaves the factory.
Illustrated here is the 19mm thick cladding option. Some customers prefer this as the shed walls are considerably thicker and allow some items to be mounted on the boards. In very windy locations it also makes what is already a very sturdy building heavier and less prone to damage.
Pressure treatment is literally that : all components of the building are placed in a large pressurised cylinder which forces the preservative deep into the timber. The formulation of the preservative gives the pressure treated Stanford sheds their green / yellow hue which complements so many gardens. The Barnstyle cladding is of heavy duty 23mm timber that locks together to create a smooth finish on the interior. Good looks and an extended lifetime are the main benefits of choosing pressure treated construction.
This is the optional Medium Oak stain finish. We also supply the Stanford shed in a range of 12 countryside colours. Take a look at our Cottage Summerhouse pages on this website which will show you many of the colour choices available.
Pictured here is the Medium Oak stain on our pine cladding. It has a lustrous sheen and preserves and protects the timber for many years.
This picture illustrates the cedar cladding used on a large proportion of our Stanford sheds. Cedar is known for its long life and good looks. It has its own natural oils in the timber which makes it very resistant to rot. Despite this we still pre-treat your Stanford shed with a wash of quality wood preserver before it leaves the factory thus ensuring it gets off to a great start in life !
We refer to 'joinery made windows' elsewhere in this website without really explaining what it means. These windows are properly jointed at the corners (rather than butt jointed) which makes them extremely sturdy and resistant to twisting and warping. They are constructed using a moulded edging section which is more attractive than conventional finishes.
The Stanford shed roof can have pressure treated slats for an extra touch of style at an additional cost. These are laid over a felted inner roof which ensures that it is double weatherproofed!
Cedar slatted roofs are available too. Other options include felt tiles or cedar shingles.
This picture illustrates a new addition to the range known as Onduline roof sheeting.
This is an extremely reliable roofing and waterproofing system used in all sorts of buildings such as individual houses, commercial and industrial buildings, as well as on our sheds !
It's a lightweight, extremely durable eco material which is laid over the normal tongued and grooved roof giving maximum protection against all kinds of weather.
Another useful option with the Stanford is the uFoil insulation and tongued and grooved internal lining. This makes your Stanford a true hobby room or studio with the additional protection this gives.
The picture shows the intersection of the walls and roof and some detail around the roof truss.
The UFoil insulation is in the cavity between the walls.

We take pride in making sure that your building will arrive in perfect condition - that is why we use our own team of drivers and fitters. As with all of our garden buildings, we like to provide our customers with a suitable delivery time. We always give good notice of our arrival date allowing you to be sure it is the right time for you. We always appreciate any helpful information regarding access to your pre-prepared base area, plus any details you may need to share with us about reaching you - so that the delivery process can run as smoothly as possible.
Our Malvern Traditional Sheds all come with optional installation. If you are thinking about having your garden shed installed by our skilled team of fitters, please be aware that you will need to have a good, strong, level base, pre-prepared prior to your delivery date. We would normally recommend a base constructed from either slabs, concrete or heavy duty decking. We will always confirm these details with you at point of order and we will provide you with base plans if needed. These measures ensure that no detail is left out - ensuring that your garden shed will be both delivered and installed without any inconvenience.
Our delivery times can vary from season to season, but typically, you should expect to receive your building around 3-4 weeks from when you order. All of our buildings are made to order, so during the busy spring to summer seasons, this may increase to 6-10 weeks dependant on the building that you have purchased. Please feel free to contact us on 0800 999 0123 to check our current delivery times.
