Are all shed suppliers the same?
No, not all shed providers are the same.
Unlike Wide Span Sheds who only use Australian BlueScope steel, some suppliers may use imported steel for their buildings - which could affect the strength of the building. The team at Wide Span Sheds also provide accurate quotes using on-site engineering – some suppliers may not have access to this, therefore they may not be Shedsafe accredited. Before planning your shed do your research.
Do I need council approval to build my shed?
The Approval processes vary from council to council and site to site. The team at Wide Span Sheds aim to make this process as easy as possible by providing you with all the information to take to local authorities and certifiers. The authorities will then decide if your shed will need approval.
What is the general process to obtain council approval for your new shed?
The Approval processes vary from council to council and site to site. To obtain council approval, you’ll need to speak with your local council. With the information provided by Wide Span Sheds, they’ll be able to approve your site.
What color options are available?
When you shop with Wide Span Sheds, you have the ability to choose from the 22 COLORBOND steel colors for your roof sheeting, exterior walls, opening flashings, downpipes, gutters, and doors.
What does it cost to have my shed delivered?
Wide Span Sheds provide free & heavily discounted delivery across all of Australia. For those on major routes, they’ll shout your delivery fees! For those slightly off the route, they offer a reduced delivery fee & for those living in remote areas, they can help you out as much as possible by arranging free delivery to any freight depot that is on the major routes.
