Whether you’re thinking of a small backyard lock-up for your tools and gardening bits, a medium-sized garage with some work space, or even an expansive structure as part of your farm or business, a shed is the most cost-effective way of gaining highly usable space in a reasonably short time.
COLORBOND® steel, being lightweight, durable and easy to maintain is an ideal choice, and coming in a huge variety of prefabricated designs can be configured to your exact needs, providing the perfect balance of looks, cost, ease of building and recyclability. COLORBOND® steel shed suppliers can also customise a shed for added convenience, comfort and security. This includes different doors, windows, colours, profiles, lighting, overhangs and shelving options.
Check with your shed supplier that the design of your shed meets the requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC) and relevant Australian Standards, and is engineered for your site conditions and usage needs (they should be able to provide evidence of compliance to these requirements). Also, many shed suppliers are involved in ShedSafe, an accreditation scheme managed by the Australian Steel Institute, designed to assist shed buyers in making an informed purchase decision.
