Alternative Flooring Options for Garden Sheds

Alternative Flooring Options for Garden Sheds


Many professionals and manuals will recommend you need a concrete slab to build you garden shed on. It is the most ideal flooring, however, Laying a concrete slab is not an option for everyone. If you are renting, don’t have enough access to your property for a mixer truck or whatever your reason may be, there is an alternative solution for the base of your garden shed.

We have two recommended options for you other than concrete, which is just as great, if not better:

1. Steel flooring kits
2. Timber (wooden) flooring kits

So let’s get started …

Steel flooring kits

A very popular option that is available with most of our Cheap Sheds models and our YardSaver models is the…

YardSaver Flooring Kit


These steel flooring kits offer an attractive option to customers who are looking for a solution that elevates their shed off the ground, however, is not as permanent as a concrete slab.

Here are the benefits of choosing this option:

  1. Steel lasts for a lifetime
  2.  You will never have issues with rot or termites
  3. Steel kits can be moved around easily and offer a cost effective flooring option
  4. These kits are quick and easy to put together

We even have a step-by-step ‘how to’ video on assembling the kit that you are welcomed to check out to see for yourself how easy they are constructed.

Please watch the video below:

These are a bit different to the Absco, you can now purchase rebated wooden floor kits for any steel shed in our range. The Stilla floor kits are pre-designed to fit most designs but you can even request a customer made one.

This product has the same benefits of an Absco Timber kit except the fact you can order one even after you have purchased your shed instead of at the same time which is very convenient. They also come with 10 years warranty!

    Hi, We are purchasing a shed in the next week and we have a slab that is about 4metres by 4.5 metres. We are thinking of a 4 x 4 shed so could you recommend the flooring for it? Also, the slab is a little bit uneven with a crack in it. Will we be able to even this up somehow with the flooring and be able to completely water proof it at the base?
    kind regards

    • Chai says:

      Hi Brett, we don’t have a 4x4m shed however for the flooring kit options, depending on the model you would get, you can get either the steel frame or the timber flooring kit to waterproof the base of your shed. With these options, the shed sits on top of the assembled flooring kit. I hope this helps and feel free to let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.

      • Brett Williams says:

        Thanks Chai,
        Could you tell me how you would suggest levelling the floor if the slab was a bit sloping or dipping in spots?
        Also, do you have a shed that is reasonably close to those dimensions?

        cheers and thanks again,

        • Chai says:

          Hi Brett,

          I’ll get you more information to your email shortly. I’ll do a bit of research here so I can provide you with an accurate advise. Talk to you later.

    Has a slight slope. I live in Mackay Qld and will need to secure to ground due to cyclone area. Would appreciate cost ,delivery and advise to secure to ground.

    • Chai says:

      Hi David,

      Thank you for your message. You will need to level the area and put a slab down. You will need to purchase a cyclone kit to go with the shed. The cyclone kit includes anchor bolts which are used to secure the shed to the slab. Will send you a quote to your email shortly.

  • Elliott says:

    Hi thinking of a steel flooring-kit. What sits between the kit and the ground? Does the kit still need to be anchored to the ground in some way or is the kit itself enough to keep the shed from blowing away?
