Product Information

Building Sizes

All sizes are approximate, based on external measurements - they do not include roof overhang. Please allow for any overhangs when choosing the size of your building, bearing in mind space required for installation and maintenance. We advise you check internal sizes if buying a building for a specific purpose. Planning permission can be required on some buildings depending on size and location, please check with your local council if unsure.
L x W x H = Length x Width x Height.
FW x D x H = Front Width x Depth x Height.
Size Code = approximate imperial size. E.g. 806 = 8ft x 6ft approx.


Buildings supplied factory treated are stained with a base coat of water based Albany Brown. The treatment process can result in some colour variation or drying marks, this will not affect the performance of the treatment or building.


Standard doors on apex sheds are hinged on the left hand side. Right hand hinge doors are available on request. Double doors on sheds are supplied with a galvanised pad-bolt or black jappaned slide bolt instead of a lock and key. Double doors can only be fitted in sections at least 600mm larger than the doors. All summerhouses are supplied with hardwood doors, which are slightly darker than cladding in appearance. Summerhouse doors are 44mm thick


Quantity of windows refers to standard buildings only. Number of windows on pent roof sheds depends on door position. All windows are fixed unless otherwise stated. Glass supplied is 3 mm horticultural (except children’s playhouses) fixed with beading. Safety glass or perspex can be ordered at extra cost on most buildings. Buildings can be supplied without windows at no extra cost. All summerhouses except for Devon and Rosedale are supplied with hardwood windows- which will be slightly darker than cladding in appearance- and toughened glass as standard.

Access to your garden

Please bear in mind that not all building sections will fit through a standard doorway or go round sharp corners. Please check site access with your retailer if you are unsure. Larger sections may be manufactured in more than one piece for handling purposes.


It is essential that your building is assembled onto a suitable base, which must be solid, level and square. We recommend a paving slab base. Tanalised timber bearers will help prolong the life span of your floor. Direction of floor joists will vary depending on model and size.


Buildings supplied untreated should be treated as soon as possible after delivery using a good quality timber preservative. Buildings supplied with a factory base coat of treatment should be re-treated within the first six to twelve months and from then on annually. It is advisable to fit guttering to larger buildings - If you are having a side door fitted in a Warwick Plus, Major or some pent roof buildings you will need to specify extra height if you plan to fit guttering above the door.


All buildings are supplied complete with floor (unless otherwise stated), polyester based green mineral felt, glass, trims and fixings. Roof purlins and trusses are supplied where necessary. Timber sizes stated are finished size after machining.
At Albany we are continually looking for ways to improve our products, we therefore reserve the right to alter specification at our discretion. All timber used is from well managed sustainable sources.

Delivery Time

Many of our products are made to order so please allow sufficient time when ordering if you require your building for a certain date. Our busiest time is spring and summer so please allow extra time if ordering during this period. Your local distributor can advise approximate delivery time.


Buildings are supplied with a standard 12 months guarantee against faulty parts and labour. We recommend you check if your building is covered by your household insurance in case of storm damage etc.
