Once you take delivery of your garden shed Penrith the first thing you should do is check that all the parts are safely inside and that nothing has been damaged. If anything is wrong call your shed supplier as soon as possible if – in the unlikely event there are any parts missing or damaged. You do not want to get halfway through the installation and discover something is wrong. If you spot any issues straight away they are easier to fix.
Take the time to read ALL the assembly instructions before you start building and refer to them throughout the process. Making a mistake can be not only time-consuming, it can also be expensive. Shed kits can be a lot harder than a flatpack cupboard or table – and – a lot bigger.
Stay safe, always wear boots, goggles and gloves and if working outside apply sunblock regularly. Most shed building injuries happen when people forget those basic precautions.
Don’t try and put your shed together on a windy or wet day, wait for a cool and still weekend to build your shed in comfort and safety.
