Plywood for sheds
Plywood is an inexpensive and quick way to lay a floor for any steel shed. Plywood is made from thin layers or chips of wood veneer that have been glued or fused together. They’re durable enough for general/home use as a floor without being overly heavy or expensive. We supply 18mm Smart Ply with all the Steel Sheds that we assemble. We cut the sheets to size and install it flat for you as a part of our assembly service.
However, please be aware that plywood is not supplied with flat-packed Steel Sheds.
Why do you not deliver the floor with all sheds?
18mm Smart Ply comes in sheets that are 8ft x 4ft in dimensions. For our flatpacked sheds, we just cannot deliver them due to size/weight restrictions. The third-party couriers use smaller vans when they collect our flat-packed shed, and they have lots of sheds to transport, so the ply is simply too big to include. Imagine a van filled with 30 sheds, for example. You’d need to add at least 120 sheets of ply to this if everyone wanted the floor! (But don’t worry, we’re not charging you for the floor with the flat-packed price!)
Besides, it’s cheaper for you to pick up plywood locally and install it yourself if needed.
If you’re getting your shed assembled, the floor is included. The assemble team are only taking 4-6 sheds on their canter vans at a time. This van is larger and has no height restriction, so they can take it with them for assemblies without issue.
What if I want to buy plywood for my flat pack steel shed?
We would recommend contacting the likes of Murdocks to get your ply flooring. It’s about €25-35 a sheet (at the time of writing). You can contact us to find out how many sheets you’d need for your Sheds Direct Ireland Shed. But most importantly, please note that if you’re buying the ply yourself, you will need to cut the ply to size. You’re only buying the plywood, not the service that cuts it appropriately for your shed. If you are doing it yourself, you would also need some power tools for cutting the ply, ideally.
