Our garden buildings are built to last, but only if they’re constructed in the best way! Here are our best tips for installing your garden building so that it is built to last!

All Waltons garden buildings come with a floor as standard (unless otherwise stated). However, in order to have a long-lasting building, you must ensure there is also a level base ready for the building to sit on. This can be either concrete, slabs or a pressure-treated wooden frame. Once you are satisfied that you have constructed a solid, level base ready for your garden building, it is time to begin the installation process.

All of our products come with a set of helpful instructions to simplify the process. However, why not let us do all the hard work and let our professional fitting team complete the installation for you?

Waltons Installation Service

Our expert fitters are fully trained and will work professionally, carefully and quickly to ensure that your new garden building is constructed safely and to the highest standard. We offer an installation service on a wide range of our garden products, including sheds, summerhouses, greenhouses, playhouses and insulated garden rooms. To check if this service is available on a product, please select Waltons Installation Service from the Additional Options tab on our product pages.

When you order the Waltons Installation Service, we'll send you all the necessary information to make sure your garden is suitable and prepared via post or e-mail. It's vital to make sure you have a firm, level base ready to install onto. It must be firm, square (across the diagonals) and level (by spirit level) and must be no smaller than the size of the chosen product base. You can find the product specification on the product page, under the specification tab.

Why not check out our How to Build a Shed Base guide for more information. The installation team require approximately 60cm (2 feet) around the site of the building to allow for safe access.

If you have purchased a portabase with installation, the team will be happy to erect this for you, provided that the ground it will sit upon is of a gradient of no more than 65mm across the length and width of the base. Please also ensure the area is clear of obstructions and not saturated with water.

When your garden is ready, a member of our delivery team will contact you to arrange the best dates for you for the delivery and installation of your new garden building.

Installation typically takes place 2 days after delivery, to ensure you are 100% happy with your purchase. Our installations take place between 7am and 7pm. On the day of delivery, we will keep in contact and you'll be given a 2-hour delivery slot, meaning there is no need for you to wait in all day. Our driver will unload your building by hand to the front of your property.

Please make sure there is adequate access to the build site without going through your house, garage or neighbouring property. Providing all is OK, the installation team will move the building from the delivery location into the installation position. The team will then install your new building as per the instructions. You can find these in the description tab on the product page. Once completed, the team will make sure to clean up afterwards, leaving you to relax and enjoy your new garden building.
