These are some of most commonly asked questions. If the answer to your question is not here please contact us.

A building consent is not required for garden sheds up to 10 m2 in floor area.
Yes the site of your shed/sleep out should be as level as possible; we can make minor adjustments when we install the shed. We are happy to quote for any foundation work or site preparation if required.
Yes the floor framing is H5 ground treated, although we do recommend supporting the shed on concrete pavers to allow air movement and possible water run off.
There is nothing wrong with a good concrete floor but we feel a built in wooden floor makes for a better shed. One advantage is that should you ever want to relocate the shed you can. A timber floor normally provides a drier environment and is usually more cost effective.
Bettershedz™ are a heavy shed by way of the materials and design, in most cases there is no need to anchor them, however where there is a high wind risk, or exposed site we can advise on what is required.

Bettershedz™ offer two door designs.
Hinged door :-

The doors have a solid timber frame and heavy duty door hardware including a key lockable “T” handle & cabin hooks. Our double doors are located at the LHS front of the shed, far more practical than in the centre. (Optional: door & window locations).

Cavity Slider door :-

The door has a solid timber frame and heavy duty hardware, and slides back into its own ‘pocket’ concealed in the shed wall.

The feature can be sized as a single or double door in our larger shed designs

Our doors use heavy duty hinges/slider hardware, pad bolts and cabin hooks (hinged option). Doors are supplied with a key lockable “T” handle, and the door frames have an internal weather flashing for the doors to close on.

Bettershedz™ folds the ColourSteel™ cladding around the corners; this provides a neat weather tight strong corner. Also the corner fixing of these sheets adds considerable bracing strength to the shed.
Yes our cladding is set 60mm below the floor level, ensuring a dry floor.
Bettershedz™ are assembled using Tek screws, these screws are a galvanised hex head screw with a rubber sealing washer. The rubber washer seals the screw hole, and minimises corrosion between the metals.
No our sheds are priced as ‘ex workshop’ from Paihia. Please ask us for a quote to deliver your new shed.
Yes you nominate exactly what you require, we are bespoke builders, as such your design is our design model.
Approximately 3-4 weeks for a shed and 5 weeks for a sleep out, sooner if possible. We will advise at time of order as to projected availability.
Yes, quality workmanship and materials are guaranteed.
Our sheds are priced based on workshop assembly times, there is a lot of double handling and more time involved when we assemble on site.
