solid base


Having a suitable Soild Level Base reday prior to erecting you new Gardn Shed / Summer House or Log Cabin is very important .

Treat it like the foundations of your House ! If the Foundations are not strong and solid you can not expect the building to stand up correctly .

It is simply not good enought to expect a Timber Building to sit directly on to Soil or Grass . As soon as it starts raining all that wet will be soaked up directly in to the Timber of Your Shed or Summer House , it will then dry out . When this starts happening on a regular basis it starts dry rot in the Timbers.

There will a be a full drop down option on every product page on this site where you can either select  this service or not .

You have a number of options to select from

  • Flagged Base – Used reconditioned used paving flags
  • Timber Framed Base – Made using pressure treated Timbers
  • Gravel Base – Ideal for a Grassed area where turf can be removed and replaced with Gravel
  • Solid Concrete Base – The most expensive option requiring a lot more work and preparation.

Our prices quoted are only “Guest-a-metes” and may vary depending on your ground conditions, the prices quoted are for you have a reasonable level and solid area by this we mean with 25mm (1-inch ) Any more that this will require extra work and as such will increase the price.

There will be a minimum charge of £20 extra on top of the basic quote for any such additional work and simply depending up on how much extra leveling, moving of obstacles, what the ground conditions are this fee will need to negotiate directly with the lads on-site as they are self-employed and we are suck in the office here and they are on the ground so to speak it is they who know how much extra work will be involved in that particular job. We can NOT assist from the office unfortunitly 

If you are NOT SURE send us a picture by email so we can get a better idea and offer you some advice. This will then be passed on to the fitters who will try where ever possible to give you a price for that extra work over the phone. But it really does come down to then getting on-site and assessing the work involved .

Log Cabin Bases

Now you must realise generally Log Cabins are a much heavier structure compared with a Garden Shed or Summer House. So as such the supporting structure must be treated in a totally different way

We can offer you as much advice as you need if you intend to do this work yourself and can offer you again a selection of options to suit your budget and the building concerned

This is required so we can quote for delivery included in our price.
