Do MCD Garden Sheds build bespoke buildings

 We can certainly look at any design you may have and provide a quote if its possible for us to produce. Check out our Garden Room page for a look at some of the work we have done!

What guarantee does your product come with?

The timber we use is fully pressure treated, therefore it comes with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee. If you follow the care guide and treat the building it won’t only give the timber a waterproof jacket. It should increase the life of the building to around 25-30 year minimum. The roof is box profile steel and will last the life of the building with no maintenance required on the roof.

 Do you offer any other roof material?

At MCD we only offer a steel roof on all full size summerhouses and sheds. Our smaller products such as mini sheds and log stores may be supplied with a timber roof as standard.

Do I need to maintain my new garden building?

A timber product will always need maintaining to get the maximum life span. We will send you a care guide for you to follow with your order confirmation.

Can I collect the building and assemble it myself?

Collection for self assembly is available. However the lead time on the item would be the same as if you had chosen delivery and installation.

Do I pay in full at the time of order?

If you order over the phone, at the time of order we take a 25% deposit then the balance is not due until the day before installation, you can however pay a larger deposit or the amount in full at the time of ordering if you prefer. If you place your order on the website there is not an option to pay a deposit – the order will need to be paid in full.

Do you have buildings in stock?

All MCD buildings are made to order and come with a minimum lead time of 6-8 weeks out of season and up to 12-16 weeks in peak season.

Do I need to provide a level base for the building to sit on?

The building does require a solid level base that is capable of taking significant weight. If your base is unlevel or you just have soft ground check out our EZ Base. The EZ base is installed on the day of installation by our team of expert fitters. If your base is not level and you have not ordered the EZ base your building may be left for self assembly.

Do I need to install guttering?

We always recommend to install guttering. We can offer this as an upgrade, please ask the sales team. Guttering allows you to control the water coming off the roof. Without guttering you will find water will run off the roof and hit the ground. This will splash back against the building at floor level possibly causing damp problems.
