Frequently Asked Questions

Can you install the concrete base?

Yes we can. 

A good quality shed base is essential preparation for a long lasting shed, summerhouse, hot tub or anything else that requires a solid foundation.

Concrete bases are constructed in the following way:

  • Preparation of ground and removal of excess waste.
  • Install timber shuttering.
  • Type one base installed to a minimum depth of 50mm with heavy duty reinforced steel bars laid on top.
  • Minimum of 100mm of concrete with screed finish. The concrete base will sit proud of the surrounding ground levels.

Concrete bases are quoted separately from shed supply and installation.

We always recommend a concrete base over slabs for any sized installation.. 

What size shed will I need?

Sheds tend to fill up quickly, so go for the biggest size you can afford or comfortably accommodate.

As a brief guide:

  • Small sheds are around 6' x 4'.
  • Storage sheds are upward of 8' x 6'.
  • Workshops start at around 8' x 10'.

A concrete base is recommended for even the smallest sized sheds.

Garden shed location?

Locating your shed should take in some of the following considerations:

  • Access. If your shed is in regular use it will need to be easily accessible and nearest to the parts of the garden where it is most useful. Also bear in mind the surrounding foliage. Keep away from ivy which may damage the shed over time. A pathway to your shed will help avoid lawn damage.
  • Space. Allow for 18" of clearance all around your shed. Overhanging roofs over your neighbours garden will not make you popular.
  • Light. Depending on the size of the shed, it may be an idea to locate the shed in a position where it will not deprive you, or your neighbour, of sunlight.
  • Shelter. A sheltered position with low wind exposure is an ideal location.
  • Trees. Avoid situating near larger trees which can cause damage to the shed and its base. 


access for delivery?

Providing there is access via a side gate there are normally no issues. The following obstacles need consideration although are not necessarily prohibitive:

  • Access only through the house / garage.
  • Tight access involving corners.
  • Restricted vehicle access to the property.

If there are any doubts, please let us know and we will do our best to find a solution.

Do I need to treat my shed?

All wooden sheds are constructed with pressure treated wood so there is no need for treatment as the process completely penetrates the timber.

Uncoloured, the wood will have a green tint caused by the copper element of the preservative.

It is then possible to have the timber treated in a colour of your choice.





What is Western Red Cedar?

Western Red Cedar has a high natural resistance to decay and goes by the name of Thuja plicata.

In its natural state, it has an attractive colouring which ranges from a light straw shade all the way through to a dark reddish brown at its centre.

It is free from pitch, has a smooth finish to the touch and holds stains and paints excellently.

Its expansion coefficient is minimal meaning that the timber is more resistant to bending and warping.

It is also blessed with excellent insulation qualities and its aromatic odour acts as a natural repellent to insects and moths.

It is a premium wood at a premium price, but it is an all-round superior product.
