Garden Shed Assembly Tips & Tricks

At National Sheds all our staff have erected a shed and understand what is needed to creating a new storage area in your backyard. We decided to ask everyone in the office for their input on creating a list of helpful tips and tricks that could be used by our customers when assembling their garden sheds.
Here’s what we came up with;

Make sure you are home or have someone home that can assist the delivery driver in lifting the shed off the ute/truck if you have organized home delivery. In most cases the delivery company sends two people to assist but, this cannot always be guaranteed.

Organise a friend to help you as erecting a shed is a two person job. Three people are best during the final assembly of a large garden shed. Allow about 4-8 hours depending on the size of the garden shed.

Wear gloves, this will help prevent any unnecessary injuries to your hands and don’t forget to apply sunscreen before commencing work. Also have plenty of fluids to keep you hydrated throughout the day.

Charge your drill overnight and make sure you have a spare charged. Knee pads are great if you are working on the ground to assemble the shed and a step ladder is handy when erecting the roof.

Read each section’s instructions in full before commencing assembly. This will help you understand how all the parts go together. Lay out each panel’s parts and sheets so that you can quickly put it together without looking for parts halfway through a panel.

Garden Shed ConstructionWhen assembling the overhanging panel ribs on the ground, put a smaller U section piece underneath to prop up the panels when you are screwing them together. This helps to speed up the assembly process when screwing them together.

When assembling the roof panels make sure the L flashings are overhanging on both sides. This is so you can screw the roof into the sides of the shed.
And finally, make sure you know where the shed is going as this will determine if you need dynabolts or anchor pegs. Dynabolts are required if you are bolting the shed down into concrete or paving (make sure you have a masonry drill bit), whilst anchor pegs are used when securing your garden shed into the ground.
