How to Choose The Best Shed Flooring
The right shed flooring can go a long way towards making your shed a more comfortable place to be, and a well insulated shed floor is essential if you’re going to be working or spending time in your shed in the winter months.
It goes without saying that a shed floor should be placed on top of a shed base, and not directly on top of the grass or concrete. A shed floor is an extra addition to an entire shed, and not a replacement of a proper shed base.
Above all, your floor should be durable. It needs to be able to withstand a lot of footfall, and it should also have great grip. A floor that’s slippery when wet can be exceedingly dangerous. The floors in this guide have rubber bars and markings that offer good grip even when your feet are wet.
The floors in this guide are all made from rubber, although other options are available. Dropping heavy items onto a rubber floor won’t damage it, nor the base of the shed underneath. Rubber floors are also easy to cut to size and install.
Finally, your shed floor should have good weather resistance. While it won’t be exposed to rainfall (unless you have done something very wrong with the shed construction!) it will have to withstand both very hot and very cold temperatures. Rubber floors have great temperature resistance and should last for years once installed.
Protect your shed floor from dust and damage with a high quality shed flooring. For its durability, great grip and range of sizes, the T & A Upholstery 5 Bar Flooring is our top recommendation for the best flooring for garden sheds.
