How long will it take to assemble?
This will depend on past experience. Generally 1/2 to 1 day for a boxed shed. Larger sheds allow more time. In panel form you need only allow about a quarter of the time.
Can I have the door positioned wherever I like?
Yes, you can specify while purchasing online or let us know where you want the door positioned by phone. 0508 448 222
What floor is best for my shed?
We highly recommend a concrete floor for windy sites.
How big is the door opening?
A standard single door is 755mm, or a double is 1550mm – custom door sizes are also available.
Can I have a sliding door?
No. Internal sliding doors take up wall space, and external lack security.
Hinged doors are alot more trouble free.
Will my shed have a timber frame?
Garden Master sheds have a steel frame, which forms a tension membrane
once assembled correctly. As we have a deep ribbed profile this eliminates
the need for any extra framing. A timber frame can easily be fitted,
but we do not offer that option.
We have Tool Racks and Shelving specifically designed to be mounted
on our shed walls using the supplied rivets and screws.
Can I make my shed more secure?
Yes. All doors come fully braced and for added security we offer the
GM Securi-door (a double padlock door) and locking t-handle.
You will need a battery drill, screwdriver or riveter, tape measure, ladder
and in most cases a helping hand. We also recommend hand and foot
protection. Do not install in wet or windy conditions.
Do you offer any assembly service?
We have approved assembly service providers throughout NZ. Our assemblers only work with NZ made sheds. Please contact us about your shed assembly needs.
Will the package fit in my car?
A boxed shed will fit in a van or large wagon.
Extra wall height can be added – sheds can be factory-cut to any rib,
in 50mm intervals.
Will my shed come with a hold down kit?
If you order a timber floor you will not need these. They are for concrete
floors only, so they are not included in your kit. We recommend pegging
your wooden floor.
Can I have any size in any colour?
Yes. Any size can be ordered in any of our 14 NZ colours.
You can also tell us which part of your shed you want in which colour.
Will my shed require maintenance?
Our sheds are generally maintenance free, however if you are near
the coast we suggest you wash your shed more often than your car.
This is particularly important under the roof overhang where the rain
does not reach.
Do I need a building consent?
If you are concerned, check with your local council, but in NZ you
are not required to have a building consent for any building under 10 m2.
Am I better to use screws or rivets?
Rivets are quicker and more permanent, but screws are fine.
We supply both screws and rivets with Zincalume sheds, and we supply
matching coloured rivets with the colour sheds.
If you don’t have a riveter, we offer one as an optional extra.
Why are colour sheds more expensive?
Colour sheds are constructed from a heavier gauge steel,
as well as providing extra protection on top of the Zincalume base steel.
What’s the difference between Zincalume and colour?
Zincalume is iron coated with zinc and aluminium to protect the iron
from rusting. The colour is applied over a series of primer coats on top
of the zincalume, giving added protection. We recommend the
colour option for coastal areas.
Can I change a flat to a sloping roof (or sloping to gable roof)?
Yes. Sheds are upgradeable, at extra cost, to the next roof model.
All flat roof models are available with a slope roof, and all slope roof
models are available with a flat or gable roof.
Note: You cannot get
a flat roof model with a gable roof, nor can you have a gable model
with a flat or sloping roof.
How long do I have to wait for my shed?
We dispatch within 10 to 15 working days for standard garden master sheds, custom garden sheds may take a little longer.
