How To Lay A Shed Base
The mixes we provide are excellent concrete for shed bases, and if you’re looking to lay a base it’s important the appropriate process is followed. To professionally and successfully lay a shed base, follow the steps below:
Pouring concrete for shed bases is perhaps the most important step of the process.
A substandard pour will not provide you with a solid enough base for your shed, so you need to make sure that this has been done correctly. A shed base needs to be at least 75mm thick and with an extra 75mm for a layer of sub base underneath. Before starting, make sure to excavate the area to this depth, removing any rocks or debris along the way.
As the concrete starts to cure, you need to make sure that there is a wooden frame installed to keep the mix in place. You can use 25mm timber planks and saw them together to the necessary length, using a builder’s square to make sure the corners are at exactly 90º before you secure the planks.
You should also use a sub base for the concrete to sit on top of. Make sure you have 75mm of hardcore and completely compact the surface. It’s best to use a specialist tool, such as a tamper, to do this. This sub base will provide you with a solid base for your concrete to sit on, and without this, the base could sink into the ground.
