When building your steel garden shed, professionals (like ourselves) will tell you, you need to ensure you have a sturdy foundation. You need a solid and level surface to build on and anchor your garden shed to safety.
Often most suppliers offer the following two options for steel sheds:
- Mixing and laying a concrete slab
- Building and designing your own foundation using timber or bricks.
Luckily today you have another option,
Timber Floor Kits!
At Cheap Sheds we offer Timber Floor Kits with most of our steel garden sheds.
If you ALREADY have a Shed and need to find a floor kit to suit it, click on your Shed Brand below to start:
Timber floor kits have generally only come with timber sheds, however due to the high demand in the market for ‘easy foundation solutions’, you can now purchase rebated wooden floor kits.
These floor kits provide a perfect solution for your DIY steel garden shed. They are easy to assemble and because they are made to fit your shed, it sits neatly on top.
Benefits of a Timber Floor
So why should you purchase a Timber Floor Kit? The reasons speak for themselves...
Firstly, you won’t have to lay a concrete slab which means less labour. It is also easier to assemble compared to mixing and pouring concrete (especially if you have no experience).
Secondly, the structure is not a permanent fixture, so it can be removed if required i.e if you need to move it or if you live in a rental home.
Key Qualities of a Timber Floor Kit
- Made from high quality treated pine (better and stronger than MOST flooring kits)
- The flooring kit is rebated, so the shed will be waterproof from the ground up
- The timber is treated so it’s protected
- It comes with 10 years warranty
What Size Sheds Do They Come With?
The floor kits are pre-made for most of the standard garden sheds on site. However, if we do not have the size for your needs they can be custom built for ANY steel garden shed below 5.4m (only when ordered from Cheap Sheds).
NOTE: Depending on the size of the floor you purchase sometimes there may be a board that needs to be cut back to fit into its place. You may also find you want to make some adjustments yourself. In this case it is an easy process and all kits come with a manual which will assist. It will be handy to have a circular saw on hand too if you want to make adjustments.
