What will my Shed be used for?
This is the number one question you need to answer before buying your shed.
You need to work out what is the main purpose of the shed. Will it serve one purpose or is it a multi-purpose building. Sheds can come in many configurations. Once you work out what the shed is for, or what problems it solves, we can design the right shed for you.
Things such as:
Size – Based on your needs and size property, determine the best size and space for your shed. This involves the width, length and height. Also ask about what will give you more value. Does the size work, are the roller door openings big enough, does it need a PA door or windows, would roof insulation help. When buying a shed, it’s very important to first think about what you will use for and what will be needed to do that.
Just as a sidenote, we have never had a customer say to us that the shed they ordered was too big. But we have had people come to us saying that they need to extend what they have or buy another whole shed. So the lesson is, make sure you have enough space to work in.
Layout – For example, where do you want the roller doors to be placed, would you like a PA (personal access) door, do you need any windows etc. Do you need an awning on one or both sides. Do you need any internal walls.
Additions: Roller Doors, PA (Personal Access) Doors, Windows, Whirly Birds, Roof Insulation, Wall Insulation. Ask yourself - Would roof insulation help. It certainly makes it more comfortable in most sheds. Do you want whirly birds (roof ventilators), to help keep a constant airflow through the building. Would windows help to let in light or fresh air. Would skylight sheets help with light into the shed. Once you’ve figured out what will work for you, you’re got a better chance to get a better shed.
Other important questions are:
Do I need council approval and what can I get approved?
In most cases the answer will be yes. It’s always advisable to either talk with your local council or call a local building certifier or surveyor to find out.
Is quality important to me?
Just ask yourself, do I want a quality. Do I want to know that it will last and is strong enough. Sheds are the one of the biggest investments you will buy in your lifetime. Like everything else you buy, there are differences, and predominately, you get what you pay for. The challenge is to find out what those differences are. A quality shed uses the best steel and is designed to be solid and withstand the wind and weather conditions. Is quality important to you or are you happy to settle for second best or even third best?

Can I get engineering with my shed?
All our sheds include site specific engineering which show that your shed has been designed to pass the current wind conditions and standards at your location.
- Warning - Not all sheds are the same!
While most sheds may look the same, this is where the similarity ends. The biggest challenge faced by you the customer is to discover the difference between one and the other, so get the best shed.
Some things we would suggest to look for are:
- Where the steel is coming from – is it fully Australian steel, or part Australian, part imported steel, or completely imported steel
- Is it a strong, up to date design - does it comply with current BCA (Building Code of Australia) and Australian standards
- The weight of the shed – this can be surprising and shows you how much you are getting
- What brand of Roller Doors – only use quality brands, as they will be constantly used
- Is everything included – you shouldn’t have to buy fasteners or brackets or anything!
- Is there a complete choice of colours and profiles
- Does it include engineering – a cost saver and shows your shed is designed properly
- Does it include delivery – saves you effort and expense
Find out what you are getting – It's your money, make sure you are getting value. Not every shed includes everything you need. Not every steel building is well designed. Some give you much more value than others.
