How to cut your garage or shed prices!

Posted on : April 20, 2011

There are many tips and tricks that you can use to reduce shed prices, without compromising the engineering of the shed.

One such trick, to reduce your garage or shed prices, is to make sure the length of your shed takes on the largest dimension.

Shed Buyers will often increase the width of the gable (span) as per the first picture in preference to the length of the side as per the second picture.

The wider you go on the gable end the more effect you will have on the structural engineering requirements, meaning more steel and a bigger shed price.  If you want cheap shed prices, increase the number of bays (length) of the shed, as you will not be  modifying the basic structural engineering requirements.

What do you think the difference in shed prices is between the two above sheds?  Remember they have exactly the same room in the shed (54 meters squared). The shed price difference is a marked 5-9% difference, by simply increasing the gable end (top picture) over the length (bottom).

If you want to keep you shed prices down, make sure that you increase the length over the gable.  Kit Sheds are designed to be extended in bays, indefinitely length wise.

An additional examples is

A 7 meters wide x 9 meters long x 2.4 meters high shed, compared to a 9 meters wide x 7 meters long x 2.4 meters high shed.  There is approximately a 3-6% difference in shed price.

The amount of shed price variation will vary according to the shed seller (as they all have slightly different engineering), however you can rest assured there will be an increase in shed price if you select a larger gable, no matter the shed seller you choose.
