Looking for steel shed installation? Here are need to know information about our outdoor steel shed installations.
Q: What size metal shed do I need for my garden?
A: The size of your outdoor building will depend on the amount of space available. From experience, we know that the storage space an outdoor shed provides will always be used, so we recommend the biggest shed you can afford as long as it fits comfortably in the space available. At NextHome, we offer a wide range of sizes to suit every space. If you are replacing an existing shed, you should consider whether to have the same size again or perhaps larger. You should also consider whether your shed will be used regularly, will require easy access, single or double doors and a ramp access.
Q: Where should I locate my outdoor shed?
A: Ideally your shed should have a clear space which is slightly larger than the unit itself and that the entrance will not be restricted. This ensures easy access for both installation and future maintenance. You should also cut back or remove any nearby shrubs and trees and remember to allow for future growth.
Q: What type of base is suitable for my shed?
A: All sheds need a substantial base. The base should be solid, square, flat and level to ensure the stability of your shed. We recommend concrete. A solid concrete base provides an excellent base for an outdoor shed.
Q: Does the shed require DIY assembly?
A: The NextHome outdoor steel sheds are delivered in fabricated panels and are assembled on-site.
