Concrete Bases from Shanettes - Superior Space

We recommend a Concrete Base with a rebate for all our units. The reason for this rebate is that the floor level is approx 50mm higher on the inside than the outside base height, this ensures the floor is fully secured and sealed against wind and rain.

We will supply you with a fully-detailed base drawing for the shed you order. This base drawing is essential in order to have the base the correct size for your shed or we have a subcontractor that can do all the base preparation for you.

Contact our subcontractor Kevin O’Neill for a free quotation on 086-2764382.

Concrete Drying Information

A concrete surface may look dry, but the slab can still contain sufficient moisture to cause problems when covered. The amount of concrete moisture can be considerable. In practical terms, several pounds of water must evaporate from every square foot of concrete for the slab to be considered adequately dry for floor finishes. The industrial rule of thumb for estimating the drying time necessary for concrete floors to reach acceptable moisture content is 1 month of drying for each inch of concrete thickness (1mm per day). So to help the drying time in your new unit you should take the following steps:

  • Leave the door (s) or a window (if fitted) open for extra ventilation or
  • Use a de-humidifier to speed up the process.

Silver & Gold Ranges:

These units have to be adequately heated to achieve ideal storage conditions for some products.

Hi Elaine and all at Shanette Sheds,

I’d like to say I’m very happy with your product and it was a pleasure having the three men who installed the shed in my home, they are great ambassadors for the company. Kevin consulted and informed me throughout the process and the other Irish guy was very affable and noticed on a couple of occasion the great care he took with the installation. All three were very courteous. I will have no hesitation in promoting and recommending this product.

Many Thanks and Kind Regards

Eric Brunell


A special thanks also to Kevin who laid the base and returned to put the finishing touches on Thursday. I was going to do this myself and glad I didn’t given the super job that Kevin carried out. If you need to give me as a reference  I would be very happy do so

Dear Kevin

Just a note to say thank you for laying the concrete base for a Shanette Garage – also for extending the driveway and erecting the fence and two gates. It was great to have the work carried out professionally – the 4 day process went smoothly due to your uninterrupted attendance (not even stopping for lunch) and it was a delight that you and your staff left the garden clean

Many thanks

Alice Henry


Hello to all at Shanette Sheds,

Just a quick note to say thank you for a job really well done. We are delighted with the extra dry space that our new shed provides. Our family and friends all agree that it fits in very well and say that it looks like it was made for the spot, which of course it was.

Your business partner Kevin did a fantastic job on the base. We would strongly recommend that anyone considering a new shed should get Kevin to put in the base as it really provides a solid foundation.

We can honestly say that a Shanette shed provides real value for money.<

Best regards,

David & Barbara Ryan, Dalkey.


A thank you to everyone at Shanette Sheds. In particular to Damian for his advice on specification and selection. To Kevin and his crew regarding the excellent groundwork on site and to Brendan and his crew for prompt installation.I was extremely happy with the professionalism shown by the above.
