Getting the right shed for the job is more than just working out the best size, shape and aesthetic that you want, its needs the correct specification for your site.
Each shed location is unique in terms of the site and exposure to the elements.
Your accredited shed seller will need to ask you a number of questions to allow them to generate a specification suitable for your building use and location. Sheds supplied for different purposes will have different building classes and design. It is very important that the correct site wind speed is determined for your site. The higher the site wind speed, the stronger your shed will need to be to resist wind forces. If your shed is in a protected area, the wind speed can normally be reduced and a lower design can be applied.
Your ShedSafe accredited seller has successfully completed shed specification training to assist them to recommend a suitable shed specification for your site.
