WHAT SETS UP APART?
We don’t belong to a large franchise with huge overheads so we invest your money into more expensive materials from New Zealand’s leading suppliers only.
Our pricing is competitive with the no frills high volume shed franchises as we have less people involved we don’t subcontract the work out giving us full control of the project and workmanship.
We use independent engineers to design our buildings with exceptionally high structural criteria for you specific property and building requirements.
After the recent earthquakes in Christchurch the building code has been reviewed and amended Post Christchurch engineering requirement of the foundations have increased footing pad and pile sizes and also more reinforcing is required.
An example of our typical design Kitset Sheds would have minimum 100 mm slab of concrete and the piles below each portal would have minimum 450 mm diameter hole 2.0 m deep usually with a 550 x 550 x 550 cap although we do have a 200 x 300 deep perimeter footing the pile is the main structural element of the foundation other companies include the perimeter footing as part of the structure and reduce the pile and pad sizes. Kitset Sheds deep piles combined with a cast in base connections in ensures a seriously solid building.
Example we use cast in base plates combined with our 2 piece knee brackets which envelope the knee joint this means we don’t require an unattractive knee brace that restricts the usable space. However we do use an apex brace to prevent any rafter sag.
We use NZ steels Galvanised structural components and colorsteel roofing products distributed through Steel and Tube. All flashings have crush folds for strength looks and wear resistance and all wet components e.g. gutters flashings are made from colorsteel MAX and on the ridge caps and aprons we use soft edge which forms to the cladding profile perfectly unlike the cheaper aluminium edge our competitors use, the extra cost of high end components is minimal in the scheme of things although they make a big deference over all.
carried through to the final product to fit with our Ultimate quality brand.
We keep the building work in house and don’t use subcontractors or labour hire.
Another important factor in the process is the equipment once again only the best from a laser equipped excavator for accurate and efficient earthmoving to compactors, concrete cutters, scaffolding and every other tool or piece of equipment that is required to have complete control over the building technique, quality and time frames of the project. We want you to be proud of your investment it’s an asset not just a shed and will certainly increase the value of your property and impress your friends because every building that we construct is up to a showroom standard guaranteed.
5 THINGS TO CONSIDER
We use NZ Steel products made right here in New Zealand Genuine Colorsteel ENDURA for the roof and walls and Colorsteel MAX for all wet products like flashings and gutters.
Steel and tube roll forming machines create swages and re curved lips into the C sections used for the portals for maximum strength. The majority of shed companies use Metalcraft industries for their roll formed products as they are cheaper. Some are using folders to fold flat back C sections these are not as strong as roll formed products and are cheaper again.
Steel and tube are nation wide and dispatch our buildings from the closest branch to you. If your building is transported long distances it is more likely to arrive with damage, be late or have components missing, The implications can be frustrating and costly.
large franchises have franchisees who trim costs creating a margin for their income, There is more than one company trying to monopolise the shed market by owning several different shed franchises.
Kitset Sheds are independently owned and operated.
