Garden Sheds with FREE* installation!
Gorilla Sheds are 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.
Current Lead Times
At the time of writing (27th July 2020) the earliest we can currently fulfil a new order is 23rd January 2021.
This is pretty common across the industry and to be honest, if you're phoning around to try and get a shed quickly then you're very unlikely to be able to do so.
There are two reasons for this:
The first reason is many people have been off work and have been spending a lot of time in the garden. This resulted in an increase of order levels during the lockdown period but we, like every other company, were unable to fill these orders. So when the shed world returned to work there was already a backlog to work through.
The second reason is that there is a shortage of materials. The timber merchants just cannot meet the demand at the moment and this situation is unlikely to be resolved before September, possibly longer.
We are keeping our orders at a realistic level and carefully manage our timber supply. By doing this we shouldn't be in a position where we have to delay our clients planned delivery and installation dates, although we cannot guarantee that this will not happen
So thats where we are right now. We're doing our best to not let anyone down. It's strange times we live in.
We are still providing quotes and answering emails

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.
