Warning: What you’re about to see may be distressing. You have been warned.Posted: October 24, 2014
This is a dreadful sight. Sadly, it’s also one which many people will have witnessed in their own back garden over the past few days, as the UK bore the brunt of the backend of Hurricane Gonzalo, with winds reaching up to 71 mph.
We all know how precious the shed is. It’s more than just a place to store your most cherished tools and toys. It’s a safe haven, a sanctuary, a refuge. The garden shed is a cornerstone of British culture, along with tea, red double decker buses, Jeremy Clarkson and our remarkable ability to remain patient in the longest of queues.
Another cornerstone of Britain however, is Mother Nature’s extraordinary talent for giving us all four seasons in one month.
Now of course, Hurricanes are fortunately a rare occurrence in the UK, but winter is coming, and unfortunately we can’t change the weather. However, we’d like to think we can help to make sure this image doesn’t become a reality for you.
A wooden shed or outhouse is great, sure, but unless you want to run the risk of finding an unexpected pile of fire wood at the bottom of your garden, we’d suggest metal is the way to go (Ok, we admit, we’re a little bit bias, but it’s true).
With our metal roofing and guttering collection, you can have the peace of mind that your brand new £200 circular saw won’t be exposed to the harsh winter climate – which we got a snapshot of this week – and ensure that your shed stays in one piece.
