If you’re in the market for farming sheds or heavy machinery equipment, you probably have your own checklist of things that you take into consideration.
But if you’re looking to establish a long-term relationship with a shed building company, you need to make sure that their buildings satisfy a few criteria:
The most important factor for a shed or steel structure is its strength. Make sure that the building’s foundation are planted deep into the soil and that the frame is strong. Experience is important here; a business that has been around a long time will have engineers that always get it right.
What is the shed made of? Every building material can be substituted for a cheaper one, but this puts you at risk of dangerous building malfunctions, damages and wear.
The best materials are Australian materials, so make sure that your shed is built with them.
Ease of access is crucially important when building a shed. What kinds of machinery do you need to get in and out? Which direction will you approach the shed from? Are you able to back out your machinery, or will you need open access on both sides?
When in doubt, it’s a good idea to maximise your access points to ensure your building is as functional as possible.
Good builders & installers
Good, reliable workers are important to the success of your project. Try to find someone who has worked with them in the past, or look for testimonials on the company’s website.
Look for a company that engineers, installs and fabricates their buildings. The more control they have over the process, the more reliable they will be.
The surest way to a damaged shed is by hiring the cheapest company. Lower priced options manage to be that way because they opt for lower quality materials and less thorough installation processes.
Buildings and sheds are investments in your farm and you deserve the best.
