Erecting your ranbuild shed
*Any EOFY savings Excludes, awnings, parts orders and jobs using better Pay. Does NOT include Better Pay orders
After the slab has hardened, assembly of steelwork may begin. Start by standing the intermediate frames attached to the hold down anchors cast into the slab.
Add the balance of the frames and begin connecting them to each other with wall girts and roof purlins. One diagonally braced bay will support several other bays.
Some erectors begin by cladding the roof; others start with the walls. If including insulation it is easier to handle by only rolling out a short amount at a time.
Consult the Ranbuild erection booklet before attaching cladding material. There are several techniques used and special requirements for weatherproofing roof cladding.
With the roof completed it's time to clad the walls. Fit all girts, windows, door frames and doors in place so wall sheets can be trimmed to fit as they are added.
Do one wall at a time and fit insulation (if required). Taper cut the tops of end wall sheets for a better fit, but don't add flashings or barges at this time.
Continue cladding one wall at a time being careful to keep corrugates or ribbs parallel and vertical. Care in trimming cladding around openings will improve overall appearance.
Finish off all external walls before cladding internal walls or partitions. Cladding may or may not require trimming at corners depending on the building dimensions.
With the building at lock-up stage, additional options may be added. Now is the time to arrange a plumber or electrician, or add internal lining if required.
If the building has an awning or annexe, it should be attached before adding the trims and flashings. Simply bolt the awning or annexe frame to the building where required.
This building has an awning on both sides, so now is the time to add the second awning. If it were an annexe, the roof then the walls, doors and windows would be added.
Join and fit the rainwater guttering with a slight fall to the outlet spouts. Connect the down pipes then complete the building by adding the remaining flashings and barge mouldings.
