EAGLE sheds are designed to be erected on a firm level base, such a base will prolong the life of the shed and is essential if problems such as badly fitting doors and windows are to be avoided. Provided that the proposed site is earth, we can lay concrete paving slabs to form a suitable base.
The prices listed below include our labour charges under average conditions.
WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO INCREASE OUR PRICE if the time element included in that price is exceeded due to adverse conditions such as:
Such extra charges will be at the rate of £40 (inc VAT) per man hour.
Please note that a paving slab base is only satisfactory if the site can be excavated down to the lowest level on the site. If the site requires the existing level of the land to be built up, then a concrete base may be required, for which we will be pleased to quote

All timber buildings require a firm level base if they are to prove satisfactory in use. Failure to provide such a base will lead to the building distorting out of shape so that the doors and windows will not fit properly and may leak.
When the proposed site for a shed is an existing hard surface such as concrete, tarmac, paving slabs etc and the site is not level, we can supply a levelling frame. These frames are made of vacuum pressure treated timber and are levelled using treated packing. Once the frame has been levelled the shed can be erected on it.
COST OF LEVELLING FRAME including INSTALLATION & VAT is £1.60 per sq ft (Subject to minimum charge of £40)
A shed base should be dead level and firm enough to take the weight of the shed (and it's contents) without subsiding.
Concrete, tarmac, paving slabs, concrete blocks and treated timber sleepers can all form suitable shed bases.
We strongly recommend that the base is constructed slightly smaller than the nominal size of the shed so the shed itself will protect the base from the weather.
A shed which is never standing on a wet surface will last many years longer than one which is frequently in a puddle.

Eagle Sheds - Preservatives and Timber Cladding
All Eagle Sheds are treated with preservative prior to delivery.
Unlined sheds are immersed in a tank.
Sheds lined with a membrane are brushed.
Summerhouses are brushed with Golden Brown preservative.
All timbers in contact with the ground are vacuum pressure treated for long term rot protection.
Coloured coatings are available at extra cost.
Eagle sheds are available in two different claddings:
Shiplap and Loglap
Boards which have been planed and moulded to a pattern which has a tongue at the top of each board and a rebate at the bottom.
Two wedge shaped boards are produced by sawing one thicker board diagonally.
These are then fixed to the shed with the thick edge at the bottom overlapping the thin edge of the next board.
The finished boards have a sawn surface, giving a rustic look
Free – Design Service for Special Buildings
Planning Applications - Assistance with Planning Applications where required
We will rectify free of charge defects arising during the twelve months following delivery.
We will normally carry out this work within seven days of being notified of a fault.
When the shed is more than twelve months old, we will be pleased to quote for repair and maintenance work.
Moving, extensions and alterations - We also undertake tasks such as shed moving, extensions and alterations.
Select a site where access will be possible all the way round the building, so that the timber can be regularly re-treated and any necessary maintenance work can be carried out
Position doors and windows away from the prevailing wind.
Avoid sites under trees, if unavoidable, order heavy duty roofing felt
Where the building has to be sited in a dip, or at the bottom of a slope, dig a ditch and fill with gravel for drainage.
Any paths, patios next to the building should be laid at a lower level and should slope away from it.
Keep plants growing close to the building, well pruned back. Ivy, clematis, hawthorn etc. can do considerable damage to roofing felt.
Maintaining your shed
Re-treat your building with an oil based wood preservative. Do this in Summer when the wood is dry so that the oil can penetrate the timber and repel damp and water through the Winter
Renew roofing felt as soon as it is necessary, do not wait for a drip to become a torrent.
Repair splits and missing knots (resulting from excessive drying out) with a wood filler such as "Tetrion" or "Metolux".
