Shed Bases are an essential part of installing a garden building in your outdoor space because they help to create a foundation that is level and reliable. Having a poor base can prevent your garden building from operating effectively.
The shed can only be as stable as the base that you create for it, so we recommend ensuring that you choose a sturdy one. This helps to prevent the timber of the shed from cracking or bowing as the building will be lined up properly.
A shed base also helps to raise the building off the ground to prevent moisture rising into the timber and causing it to rot.
At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies, we offer a range of shed bases manufactured from the traditional pressure treated timber or plastic.
Benefits of a Plastic Shed Base
Plastic might not seem like an obvious choice of base, but it’s a good one to consider because it won’t rot over time, making it an excellent long-term solution.
They have a unique design that allows the aggregate to be installed in the spaces which help to add stability as the load is spread evenly across the full base. This is important if you are installing a larger building.
Plastic is a hot topic in the news right now, however, the bases are manufactured from recycled plastic.
Wooden shed bases are suitable for use with garden buildings of a specific shape and size, whilst the plastic base slots together to adapt to the building.
