WOODEN SHED FAQs

What are the benefits of a Wooden Shed?

Timber sheds are a great addition to any backyard! Here are a few benefits:

  • Attractive looking shed for your back yard
  • Constructed with a full timber frame – this creates a strong shed as well as making it easy to line with ply or attach shelving!
  • Pre-made wall panels means they are one of the easiest garden sheds to install
  • Do not condensate as much as steel garden sheds
Does my Wooden Shed come stained?

No the wooden sheds do not come stained. This is simply because it is a time consuming job and we also don’t know what colour/look you would like!

Once assembled we do recommend staining your shed as this will help prolong the life of the timber You can purchase paint/stain from your local hardware shop and choose the colour to best suit your back yard!

Can I customise my wooden shed?

Yes! The Pinehaven and Cedar sheds are both fully customisable where there length, depth and height can be modified with the option of adding windows, clear roof panels and extra doors.

What flooring option is best for my Wooden Shed?

A timber floor can be purchased at the time of ordering your shed and is the cheaper and easier option when compared to a concrete floor. It is sufficient for any garden shed and adequate for the larger models.

If I want a concrete pad can you lay it for me?

It is best to contact us and discuss. Some of our assemblers will lay concrete pads whereas some won’t, so this depends on what area in NZ you are. Concrete pads are very time consuming and expensive so it can be better to order a timber floor, however, if a concrete pad is a must contact us and we’ll see what we can do!

If I already have a concrete pad can I put my shed directly on it?

Yes you can. However, if your concrete pad is not custom made for your particular shed it will be very difficult to seal and chances are water will seep into your shed. We recommend purchasing a timber floor kitset as well, this will ensure your shed is extremely waterproof.

Do I need to secure my shed?

We recommend always bolting/pegging your shed down! However, the wooden garden sheds are heavy once assembled so may not be necessary. If you are unsure we recommend anchoring your shed down if it is in an exposed/windy area or if you are putting your shed on a concrete floor.

A bolt down kit is used for anchoring your shed to a concrete pad where a peg down kit it used to anchor your shed to grass/dirt.
