Before you buy a flat pack steel garden shed from EasyKit Sheds.ie, there are a few things you should keep in mind before you make your purchase.
Evaluate Your Space and Requirements: Before browsing the options available, take some time to assess your space and determine your specific requirements. Consider factors such as available area, shed size, and the purpose it will serve. Are you looking for a small storage shed or a larger workspace? Understanding your needs will help you narrow down your choices and select the most suitable flat pack steel shed.
- Do you have easy access to the location: Access to the site is important. While our steel sheds are delivered flat packed, they may still be too big to go through a house. For example, a 12ft x 10ft Steel Shed won’t go through a low ceiling hall with a bend. Before you buy a shed, establish if you have easy access. We prefer that you have side access. However, if you don’t have a side entrance, a ‘clear, straight, unencumbered run through the house may suffice. If you are unsure get in touch with us.
- Do I need a level base? Having a level base is crucial when it comes to installing a shed from EasyKit Sheds. A level base provides a stable and solid foundation for your shed, ensuring its structural integrity and longevity. When the base is not level, it can cause various problems, such as doors and windows not aligning correctly, compromising the shed's overall functionality and security. Additionally, an uneven base can lead to water pooling or drainage issues, potentially causing damage to the shed's flooring and contents. By investing time and effort into creating a level base, you can ensure a hassle-free installation process and enjoy a sturdy and reliable steel garden shed that will withstand the test of time.
- Do I need a concrete base? Steel Sheds cannot be laid on grass alone as they’ll sink into it over time. Ideally, you’ll want to put them on concrete. However a level surface such as hardcore stone, paving slabs, tarmac etc will suffice.
- Is the location appropriate?You’ll want to find the best place to put your new EasyKit Shed. * Somewhere accessible – if you have a big garden, consider the middle of the garden instead of the end, to avoid cold treks for coal/fuel in the Winter months!* Away from anything that may scratch the panels of the shed (swaying branches, etc.)* Always, put your shed on level ground.* Put it somewhere that’s not routinely wet (i.e. under drains, against a sprinkler, etc.). It rains enough in Ireland to really test any shed, so give it some breathing room and place your shed in a place that won’t be consistently wet.
