With a damp and really useless old garage that was too small for her car and ruining her view Katherine wanted to replace it with a functional and more attractive timber garden building. A new building was designed which had the addition of a useful log store on the side.
It is all fab, thank you for the shed, and the incredibly efficient and mess-free work getting rid of the old one and putting this up. I smile every time I look at the shed - SO much better and more attractive than what it replaced!
Rachel had an old shed in her garden overdue for replacement. She wanted a functional building, but not at the expense of something nice to look at. John suggested a canopy over the front and painted windows and door to give the shed a more unique look.
You and your team have delivered just what we asked for, a shed that doesn’t look too shed like, it is perfect. Thanks for tweaking the design, the small canopy at the front really lifts it. The craftsmanship, quality & finishing touches shine through. It’s definitely more than just a garden shed and your staff are a credit to your brand; courteous, tidy and professional craftsmen.
Thanks again for delivering a high-quality product to time and budget.
Mr E was looking for a suitable storage shed for his new mower. Thing is, the space he’d picked for it to go was atop a steep slope. Together, we worked towards a solution that would allow him to drive the mower into the shed. That’s what a ride-on mower’s for, right?
I did a fair bit of looking before I chose Shields for a new carport and lock-up shed. It is very professionally handled by John himself who is clearly providing a quality service. The workmanship and the workmen were hardworking and clearly keen to provide exactly what you want, discussing any issues that arose with you on the journey. The detail and quality finish makes this a real joy to finally get the finished product. Even the aftercare and return visits to ensure the client is happy is worth its weight. This is craftsmanship at its best.
Within weeks of moving to their new home, Peter and Julie arrived at Shields Buildings to look at our display products. Being experts in outdoor buildings and storage solutions, we understood just how urgently they needed somewhere to put their possessions. The thing is, they didn’t know exactly what they were looking for, but wanted somewhere to protect their cars and to store their posessions. John was able to offer some useful suggestions for them.
We’ve been so impressed with the service and quality of the work done by Shields. From start to finish the experience was fantastic.
The fact that John Shields came to our property and carried out the survey and explained everything showed us that this company cared and gave personal service.
We are so pleased with the end product and are making full use of the new space. Thanks to all the team!

When Richard and his wife moved house, they were delighted to have a larger garden, but knew he would need somewhere to store not only the equipment they already had, but also the ride on mower they were going to need.
Richard wanted to have a purpose built shed, but didn’t know what was available. He was delighted that by talking to Shields Buildings he had options suggested, such as a wider door on the front allowing flexibility and ease of access, with a personnel side door that they use on daily basis, making access all that much easier.
Richard chose Shields Buildings as he wanted a quality building. It was a great advantage for him to be able to see the buildings on show and talk to knowledgeable people about getting the building just as they wanted it.
"I would recommend Shields Buildings, as right from the start the professional and friendly approach from all the staff was marvellous. On site I couldn’t have come across a gang of men who were more concerned about the quality of the job they achieved. The attention to detail is so rare in this day and age and that we are very grateful."
If your building comes with a timber floor built in, then all you’ll need is a level site for it to sit on. We can discuss this when we do a site visit. Don’t worry about getting your spirit level out though – our trained installers will deal with that when they arrive to install your building.
Unless you love getting rained on, a roof is pretty much a must, and the good news is that you’ll be well catered for – you can choose from natural finishes of cedar shingles and slate, through to long-lasting plastisol steel sheeting, all in a range of colours.
Left unpainted or stained and your exterior timber colour will naturally fade and soften over time. Some like that, some don’t. If you’d rather leave it natural, that’s totally fine, but if you’d prefer a colour that lasts and lasts, we can do that for you too.
However many windows you want, your wish is our command. Your windows can either be fixed, or opening, depending on your requirements. Many customers opt for removable security shutters to ensure security when they’re not there.
Built around a substantial wooden framework, your bespoke wooden shed is made to last with a damp proof wall membrane to help keep your possessions dry. The heavy-duty framing and walls are strong enough to support your shelves and tool racks.
All the external timber we use is pressure treated northern European redwood, from sustainable and managed sources. Your building will be given extra protection against the weather with two coats of water proofer.
