Five Important Questions to Ask Before You Buy a Shed
For many of us, our sheds are there to provide shelter and protection for the things that are important to us. Whether it’s for our home, farm or business, sheds are there to keep our important belongings safe and sound. And for many people their shed can be the third biggest investment, behind their house and car. That’s why it’s so important to ask the right questions and get the right shed for your needs.
Does the steel in your shed meet Australian Standards?
Most sheds are designed and built in Australia, but in some instances the shed and the steel can be made somewhere else. Steel made by BlueScope Steel is 100% Australian made and guaranteed to meet or exceed Australian Standards.
To comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) requirements, the steel used in your shed should comply with the relevant Australian Standards.
ZINCALUME® steel (often used in roofing and walling) and GALVASPAN® steel (used for the important structural components) are made to comply with AS1397. COLORBOND® steel is made to comply with AS2728 which covers the paint and application technology and AS1397 which covers the properties of the metallic coated steel substrate.
Will your shed stand up to Australia's harsh conditions?
Around Australia our scientists have been testing steel products for over 45 years in some of the country’s harshest climatic conditions. Australia has some of the highest UV levels in the world, which can play havoc with painted steels. In fact, AS2728 requires pre-painted steel used in buildings to be tested in designated extreme climates throughout Australia, including sunshine exposure sites. And as required by the Standard, testing is conducted for performance attributes such as blistering, cracking, flaking and peeling. In other words, COLORBOND® steel is tested against defects that you do not want to see appearing on your shed.
Can you be sure this testing has been performed on pre-painted steels made in other countries, to foreign standards?
The workmanship in your shed may have a warranty but what about the steel?
In addition to the workmanship that goes into your shed, make sure the steel used in your shed has a warranty you can trust. Roofing and walling made from COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel is backed by a warranty* from BlueScope Steel right here in Australia.
Is it genuine COLORBOND®, ZINCALUME® and GALVASPAN® steel in my new shed?
Look for the brand. To make sure you get genuine, COLORBOND®, ZINCALUME® and GALVASPAN® steel, ask your shed supplier to show you the brand marking printed on the reverse side of the steel. Made only by BlueScope Steel these registered brands have built a reputation as some of the most trusted building materials in Australia.
Is your shed design engineered specifically for your site?
Like your house, your shed should also be engineered specifically for your site. Every shed is different in terms of the site, exposure to the elements and distance from other buildings. Combining this data with other important information such as the intended use of your shed and the wind speed, enables your shed supplier to determine the right design specification.
What Warranty Comes with Your Sheds?
All of our sheds and carports come with a 10 Year BlueScope Steel manufacturers warranty on sheeting and portal frames.
How do I Get a Quote or Price for a Shed?
What Extra Costs Will I Be Up For?
In most cases no. Quote price includes all of the parts needed to build your building. If required, we can also give you a price for erecting your building and also a cost for laying a concrete slab. All of our building’s rainwater connections (gutters and downpipes) are calculated to ground level only. If you require additional drainage or a storm water or tank connection this would be an additional cost. It also assumed that the shed is being built on a local level site and that earthworks are not required.
Do I Require Council Approval for My Shed?
In nearly all cases you will need some form of Council approval for your shed. After your deposit has been received, we will release engineering plans, slab and footing engineering, a slab layout. Unfortunately each Council is different and this approval process can take anywhere from 2 weeks up to 8 weeks.
How Long Before I Get My Shed?
Depending on whether you need Council approval, it usually takes 3 to 4 weeks to manufacture and deliver all the componentry to site. If Council approval is required, we will not order your shed until the approval has been received.
Can I Build My Own Shed?
Depending on the size of the shed, it is possible to build it yourself. When you purchase a shed from us, you do receive a detailed construction guide to assist you. For larger sheds specialist machinery such as cranes and lifters maybe required, that we will look after if you require us to erect it. Discuss your options with us when you come in for a quote.
Can I get a Builder?
YES but you should also double check and make sure the person whom you are thinking of getting is licenced to erect your building.
