Base Laying Service

We provide three types of bases – Platform bases, heavy duty timber base, and concrete bases. We can also supply bearers for raising a building up in wet areas.

The area for all bases must be clear and free from all obstructions such as trees and bushes. There should also be no drains, pipes or electrics which could prevent the base being laid. If you have any doubts about your garden building base, a free site visit service is available.

Bearers

Treated Timber Bearers are highly recommended. These will improve the airflow under your building and will extend the life of your building if erected in damp and wet areas – BEARERS ARE NOT TO BE USED TO RECTIFY UNLEVEL GROUND.

Platform Bases

Pressure-treated timber bases are constructed from 100mm x 50mm timber with bracing in each corner. When installed these are staked out and levelled with timber and/or metal legs where necessary to ensure a perfect level. These can be installed on uneven areas with no more than a 100mm (4 inch) fall, and will elevate your building. Once installed, this guarantees your building installation. For Decking Corner Steps add £50 extra to the base price.

Heavy Duty Timber Base

These are ideal for uneven ground (no more than 30cm out of level) manufactured with pressure treated 150mm x 50mm timber. Rot-proof recycled plastic legs are concreted in the ground to form a perfectly level base for your building. 

Concrete Base

Concrete bases are laid on a damp proof membrane with a minimum thickness of 100mm with re-inforcement mesh included. Concrete bases will last a lifetime and are recommended for ALL buildings.
The prices shown are an estimate, and are subject to a perfectly level ground with good access to the site. The area for all bases must be clear, free from obstructions with no drains, pipes, or electrics obstructing the site. We do not offer groundworks and digging out, this is the customers responsibility but we are happy to offer a free site survey on request.
