Forget those traditional methods for building shed base and investing your hard earned money in them. Instead you can use the plastic shed base for the exact same purpose and get much better result. These plastic shed bases are made with latest and most modern technology to give you the best results. More over these bases are eco-friendly in nature because they are made up of 100% recycled plastic
The majority of the time, when you look for an adjustable garden shed base, you’ll come across something that’s height adjustable. These are often used if people don’t have the time, or don’t want to level the ground before laying a base and building a shed. They can also be used if you’ve inadvertently positioned your shed in an area prone to water logging etc. If this is the case then a height adjustable base will allow you to boost the height of the base, removing the shed from the danger zone.
Depending on the reason for a height adjustable shed base, the majority of people opt for wood (for aesthetics) or a type of windable plastic feet, like this; neither of which we would recommend simply because they either go against our rule of ensuring you have a flat and level surface before constructing the base, or there isn’t a full support across the entire base of the shed.
At the Shed Base Company, we have a base that’s quite unusual, namely because our plastic shed base is adjustable in length and width, rather than height. Our plastic shed bases are strong, they’re durable, they’re environmentally friendly, they’re cost effective, but, most importantly they’re adjustable. These shed bases are not a permanent structure which means your shed doesn’t need to be either. Should you wish to move your shed in a few years, that’s okay? If you decide you need a bigger shed to accommodate your new patio furniture set over winter, that’s okay too and you won’t have to worry about your base.
If you had a concrete base for your shed, then the story would be different, this is very much a permanent structure and, as you can’t really add to its size, it means you can’t move your shed, nor can you replace your shed for something larger – or smaller.
The same applies to a wooden base; its size is set so there is no room for substituting your shed for a modern alternative.
With a plastic base however, you’re completely free to move, grow and shrink it as you wish. Each of our panels features an interlocking connection on each side which allows simple and easy construction of your shed base (most people can lay around 100m2 in just an hour), but it also means that panels can be added or removed at any time without affecting the integrity of the base itself.
The only thing we do recommend is using a tooth saw to cut the base down to size once laid. This would mean that, should you wish to add to the base in future, the panels that have previously been cut will need to be removed and replaced with full panels. However, the cut panels can once again be used to make up the edges. The reason we recommend this is because once you cut one of the panels you’ll saw off the interlocking mechanism on that side. Should you wish to add to the shed base, although panels can be laid to the side of the sawn off edge, it would mean that the base wouldn’t be as strong in that particular area and could be prone to sinking on wetter ground – you can find out more about that here.
These plastic shed bases will last much longer than any other methods as they are not affected with thing. Moreover they come in many designs and different sizes to choose from. Once they become useless or no longer needed they can be again recycled into useful products.
As always, if you have any questions or need any advice about your shed base, our friendly team is on hand to help in any way they can.
