Preparing for a Metal Shed
Preparing your garden or site for a metal shed is essential. You need to make sure the area where you want to place your new shed is clear of trees, away from fencing and other obstacles. The site where you want to place your metal shed needs to be completely level; always check this with a spirit level. Ensuring your shed site is level will help prevent water damage, rust and condensation
Metal Shed Base
The foundation/base for your new garden shed need to be level, flat and moisture free. A concrete slab base is perfect for a metal shed. It provides a strong solid base. Adding a layer of waterproof membrane will also help prevent condensation. Take a look at our build-a-base page if you need any more help.
Preventing Condensation in Metal Sheds
If your metal shed is suffering from condensation then there are a few tricks you can try to relive it. Firstly try adding a small bowl of sea salt to a corner of your shed. The sea salt should help draw moisture from the air therefore preventing condensation.
Another trick is to add polystyrene panels to the walls of your shed. Polystyrene can be purchased from most DIY stalls and adds a barrier between the moisture in the air and your metal shed. Attach with blue tack or masking tape.
Always check to see if the base of your metal shed is completely flat; if not water could be leaking inside your shed. Also make sure your metal shed is well ventilated; most of our Walton’s Metal Sheds come with air vents; this helps reduce condensation.
