WHICH ROOF SUITS YOUR NEEDS?
The amount of space which is available around the garden shed is used as a general guide, when deciding on hinged doors or sliding doors.
Sliding doors are more appropriate in smaller spaces where surroundings could cause obstructions to the doors. Sliding doors donít require any additional space, since they don't open outwards. Sliding doors also allow for easy access because they don't need to be held open to get into your garden shed.
Sliding doors do require maintenance - the plastic glides on the garden shed will need to be replaced over time. The tracks on a sliding door shed need to be kept clean and clear of obstructions to ensure the doors slide smoothly. To maintain the sliding doors, it is suggested to spray a silicone spray on the track every couple of months.
Sliding doors can only be placed underneath the gable of the garden shed, this needs to be taken into consideration before purchasing.
Hinge doors are great when space isn't limited, hinge door garden sheds generally have a winder opening then sliding doors. Wider opening doors can make it easier for storing larger items.
One of the advantages of hinged doors is that they can be placed on any wall of a garden shed (subject to a minimum depth requirement). This means that access to your garden shed can be exactly where you need it.
