What to consider before enquiring about a shed
If you are thinking about building a shed, there are several factors you should consider before submitting your enquiry.
What type of shed do you want to build?
Before making any decisions on the size or look of your shed, your first step should be to consider what type of shed you need. With many different shed types available, you must get this step right to ensure you have the right shed type to suit your needs.
Every shed we offer is built to your requirements and may fall under the following categories;
- Sheds & Garages
- Carports & Garaports
- Stratco Pergolas & Patios
- Garden Sheds
- Farm Sheds
- Hay & Machinery Sheds
When considering your shed type, it is also necessary to consider what it will be used for, as this will ultimately help determine what kind of shed you need. Once this decision has been made, it will be much easier to decide the size of your shed, as you will have already determined most of the factors that will impact the size of your shed.
What size shed do you need?
After deciding which type of shed you want, the next important step is determining what size your shed will be. Not only do you need to consider the overall size of your shed, but also the height of your shed, bay sizes, and the size of any doors you may like to add.
Once your shed is complete, the size is not something that you can change easily, so it’s important that you take the time to carefully consider all the factors that will impact the size of your shed and its access points. When choosing the size of your shed, a great way to ensure that your shed will be big enough for your needs is to measure everything that will be used or stored in your shed. This will help ensure that everything will fit in your shed while giving you ample room to work and move around.
Where will your shed be located or positioned?
It’s also important to consider the location of your shed on your property, as once it is complete, it is very difficult to move to a new location if you change your mind. Therefore you must get this right the first time. You will also need to consider a few factors, including the proximity to boundaries/fences and neighbouring properties, existing dwellings, and vegetation around your property, to ensure that nothing will get in the way of your shed and cause problems in the future. While considering the location of your shed, you should also consider your available space, as you do not want your shed taking up all your free space and leaving you no wriggle room.
How do you want your shed to look?
Once you have considered all the finer details of your shed, it’s time to think about how your shed will look. This includes everything from the colours of your shed to the profile type and any extra accessories you may want to add. When considering this, you may like to consider;
- The colours of existing dwellings, sheds or fences you have, as you may be able to match the colour of your shed to any existing colours and create a cohesive look.
- Accessories are a simple way to take your shed to the next level. They may not be the first thing you think about but are much easier to include when you install your shed rather than trying to install them later down the track once your shed is complete, thus allowing you to have a neater completed product. This includes installing everything from windows to ventilation options and vermin protection that can enhance your shed and help you to create the ultimate storage space.
