Here at Dencroft Garages, we are well known for our high-quality concrete garages. But did you know, we also manufacture and provide sheds as well?
A shed is a great alternative to a shed, particularly if you are a bit strapped for cash. Luckily, we provide the two most popular types of shed – the apex shed and the pent, both of which we will be talking about today. So, which one should you choose?
An apex is usually the first type that springs to most people’s mind when you think about a shed for your home. The apex has a roof shaped like an ‘A’, with the roof sloping down either side of the shed, providing extra height.
The extra height also benefits those who want to store tall items in their shed or those who physically like to work inside – extra height means more storage space.
Thanks to the ‘A’ shaped roof, it also helps prevent any flood which may otherwise occur on a flat roof – the reduction of flood chances also means less maintenance will be needed and your shed will stay in better condition for a longer amount of time.
A lot of people think that a pent roof is a flat roof, but they are wrong. The pent is a single-sloped roof, meaning the water can gradually fall from the roof – again, preventing major flooding and damage to the shed roof.
The lower height means that the pent is better for storing lower to medium items. It can also lower its height if you need it in situations such as problems with a neighbour or if it is affecting the look of your garden.
Which should you choose?
Now, it’s not up to us to make your decision for you as there will be factors which will impact your decision, but they are both great sheds. It is important to think about what will be going in the shed, what you will be using it for and other maintenance factors.
