Garden Sheds with FREE* installation!
Gorilla Sheds are independent manufacturers and installers of sheds, summerhouses and bespoke garden buildings based in Hawkwell, just outside of Southend on Sea in Essex. We manufacture a range of quality garden sheds, log cabins, and garden rooms. We also offer a bespoke service to make your new garden building to your own design or layout..
*When you buy from us, we will install your new shed, summerhouse, garden room or log cabin for you free of charge at the time of delivery providing that there is good access and a suitable base
Delivery timesAs at 21st December, we are booking in jobs for late May 2021.
I have been in this industry for 34 years and I have never known demand to be as high as it is.
Unfortunately, it just isn't possible for us to increase our production to meet the demand as there's a shortage of timber supply which is Covid related.
I'm proud to say that up until now, we haven't missed a single delivery slot due to the shortage. Not one client has been let down. Everyone has had their shed, summerhouse or workshop on the date we agreed with them and this is wholly due to us being in close communication with our suppliers and working with them to ensure our delivery schedules are kept on track.
Thats where things are now and it's looking likely that this will carry on into next year, there is no end in sight for it. If you are looking to get a shed quickly then you'll have to be very lucky to do so. If you are looking to get a shed for the early part of next year, I would advise you to get your order processed and booked in as soon as you can.
Booking Fee/Deposit At the moment we are taking bookings but not taking booking fees. The situation is that no-one knows what the situation is. We have heard of at least two shed companies that have gone into liquidation and taken clients deposits with them, there may be more of that to come.
As Director, I am not comfortable with holding clients booking fees (or deposits, whatever you want to call them) for 6 months in such an uncertain environment. We will accept your order and agree a delivery date with you but you won't pay us anything until about 8 weeks before your new garden building is due for delivery and installation. At that point we will take 1/3rd of the cost off of you with the balance being due on completion.

Gorilla Sheds manufacture a range of quality garden sheds, summerhouses, and log cabins that are built to a very high standard.
Our garden sheds and summerhouses are built using quality materials:
All our cladding is 5th grade or better Scandinavian redwood pine, either 12mm finished thickness or 16mm finished thickness (ex16mm or ex19mm)
Our framework is either 38mm x 63mm or 32mm x 45mm depending on the size or specification of the shed.
All of our framework has a smooth, planed finish and is rounded on all 4 corners.
Our shed floors are either tongue and grooved or, on our larger garden sheds and and summerhouses, 18mm exterior plywood.
We round over the edges of our roofs so that the roofing felt isn't creased as it folds over the edge. This "eases" the felt over the edge and means that ithe felt is much less likely to split at the edge.
Our standard roofing felt is hard wearing polyester based green mineral, not the cheaper fibre based felt more commonly used.
We try not to hide extras in our pricing although there are optional extras if you want to upgrade.
All our prices include delivery in South and Mid Essex, and East London. We will deliver if you are further afeild although it is at additional cost which is calculated according to the delivery postcode.
We install all or our sheds free of charge at the time of delivery. We need you to ensure that there is good access and a suitable firm, flat base for the shed to go onto.
If we cannot get the shed into your garden or if the base isn't suitable then your garden shed, summerhouse, or log cabin will be delivered to the front of the property.
We cannot take garden sheds, summerhouses, or log cabins over fences, garages, extensions, or other obstacles for insurance and safety reasons
If you have difficult access then please give us a call and we can explore the options with you, We will work with you to fulfill your garden building requirement.
We give our garden sheds and summerhouses (not log cabins) a basecoat treatment as standard which is included in the price.
If you prefer for your shed, summerhouse , or log cabin to be fully treated for you prior to delivery so that it is ready for use we offer two other treatments:
Barrettine’s Wood Protector which contains water repellent resins and a biocide film wood preserver to prevent the surface growth of mould/algae and together this helps reduce decay, swelling, twisting of wood. Its pigments have good UV fade resistance and will help protect wood from UV damage.
Barrettine’s Wood Protector is an ideal treatment for outdoor Treated timber structures and is Oil / Spirit based for deeper penetration leaving a transparent/translucent finish colour effect to wood, where the grain texture is still visible. This treatment requires re-coating yearly.
Royal Exterior Superior Wood Finish is a high-grade water-repelling timber treatment that contains a mould inhibitor to protect the coating. It is perfect for use on all softwood cladding, gates, and garden furniture. Hard-wearing Protek Royal Exterior wood finish is low in odour and with low VOC (volatile organic compounds). It complies to EN71 parts 2 & 3 relating to child toy safety and flammability. The unique formulation is a water-based acrylic and alkyd hybrid that incorporates a polyurethane dispersion based on linseed oil - a renewable resource. Protek Royal Exterior wood finish has a life of 3-5 years before recoating is necessary.
Our windows are real glass, we do not use plastic that might yellow over time. If safety is an issue then we can swap the standard horticultural glass to laminated glass at additional cost.
As all our sheds are built to order it is no problem for us to modify a design for you or to build a completely bespoke garden building for use as an office, man cave, ladies retreat, garden room or a crash out for the kids.
Gorilla Sheds – Quality Garden Buildings That Are Built To Last
Gorilla Garden Sheds
At Gorilla Garden Sheds we build garden sheds up to a high standard using good quality graded timber to ensure that your shed lives up to our reputation. Many companies build their garden sheds using cheap whitewood cladding which keeps their prices down but isn't as durable as the redwood pine that we use.
Whether your requirement is for a garden storage box, a garden shed , a home office or a bespoke garden building, we exercise the the same care in providing your new garden shed or building as we would if it were going in our own garden. If you cannot find the garden shed or building that you require on this site then please give us a call or drop us a line.
