1Spring is almost here and with the weather starting to warm up, it’s the perfect time to start shed renovations. Not only will you have a brand new shed, but outdoor DIY projects are the backbone of preparing your actual property for the colder months. They are also the perfect excuse to get out of the house without completing chores…

On that note, let’s discuss four affordable projects you can easily complete yourself. With a quick tutorial and high-quality materials from Sheet Plastics, we have no doubt your shed will look fantastic by the end of the week!

4 DIY Shed Renovation Ideas:

1. Polycarbonate Roofing

Polycarbonate roofing sheets are known for their impact resistance, making them an incredibly useful aspect when designing a roof. In fact, they provide 30 times the durability of acrylic sheets and more than 250 times than glass.


  • Easy to transport as they are lightweight
  • Impeccable heat resistance
  • Impressive sound insulation
  • Low-maintenance (clean with soapy water)
  • Multitude of textures available
  • No discolouration for several years
  • Recycled if no longer needed
  • Resistant to harsh weather conditions

Roofing Applications

  • Canopies
  • Conservatories
  • Garages
  • Garden sheds
  • Greenhouses
  • Warehouses


Our polycarbonate roofing sheets start at just 6p, ranging up to £716.94, including tax. At an additional cost, you can also add the relevant application accessories.


All our plastic sheets are tailored to your measurements, calculated in cm, mm and m. Our polycarbonate sheets offer thicknesses starting from 2 mm to 12 mm with a size range of 3040 mm x 2040 mm. Whereas, our multiwall roofing sheets range from 6000 mm x 2100 mm.

2. Acrylic Secondary Glazing

Secondary glazing is expensive, and with the cost of living, many are flocking to the alternative; acrylic secondary glazing. It’s 17 times stronger than glass, making it even more secure for windows.


  • Durability provides security
  • Excellent soundproofing
  • Extremely energy-efficient
  • Low-maintenance (clean with soapy water)
  • More affordable than glass secondary glazing
  • No planning permission for listed buildings
  • Resistant against harsh weather
  • Simple and quick to install and remove
  • Thermal insulation reduces condensation


  • Doors
  • Listed buildings
  • Multiple types of windows
  • Partitions


The cost starts between 8p and 17p. At an added cost, you can also add secondary edging strips, glazing strips and sliding tracks.


Our acrylic secondary glazing is available in thicknesses of 2 mm, 3 mm and 4 mm with a maximum size of 3040 mm x 2040 mm. Our system can also calculate cm and m.

3. Personalised Acrylic Sign or Splashback

There is nothing like a personalised acrylic sign to make your shed feel homely. Whether you use it for DIY projects or a place to relax, our acrylic signs are the perfect label. Alternatively, acrylic can keep your walls clean and undamaged from chemicals and tools as a made-to-measure splashback.


  • Easy to clean (warm soapy water)
  • Hardwearing
  • High chemical resistance
  • Lighter than glass
  • Low-moisture absorption
  • More affordable than glass
  • Resistant to harsh UV rays
  • Strong weather resistance

4. PVC Shed Cladding

PVC shed cladding is already a trend in other countries, which the UK is slowly picking up. However, wall cladding has been popular for years, so it only makes sense to protect not only our property, but our sheds and storage spaces too.


  • Affordable compared to other materials
  • Can last up to 50 years
  • Easy to maintain
  • Prevents mould and damp
  • Reduces the risk of water damage
  • Resistant to extreme weather

It’s important to note, PVC cladding is not suitable for low-quality or damaged wooden sheds. It works best over timber, masonry or a block substrate.

Customisation Options

If you require a shade or colour other than white, please call our experts to discuss your options. Any joining strips purchased will match the colour of your cladding. Alternatively, you can order a sample if you are unsure of the material.


The price of our PVC cladding begins at £44.40 up to £82.64. You may also require joining strips, which range between £6.07 and £8.64 each.


Our PVC cladding is available with thicknesses between 1.4 mm and 2.5 mm, and a size of either 2440 x 1220 mm or 3050 mm x 1220 mm. We can also calculate in cm and m.
