Factors that affect Kitset Shed Prices

For the most basic builds, you can expect to pay around the amounts listed for each different kind of shed. So what are some factors that may increase the price? Several things to keep in mind include:

  • The slope of the building area. Flat surfaces are simpler and allow for a more straightforward design and build.
  • Wind zones. In some regions with high winds, additional stability is required to ensure that the shed can withstand high winds. This additional support structure will increase the final cost of the kitset.
  • Snow loading. If the shed is in a snow zone, it will need to be able to withstand snow loading on the roof, which will add to the price.
  • Permits and Build. Depending on what you’re building and where you’re building, you may need to acquire permits and tools for building. While these don’t increase the price of the shed directly, they can be important factors to keep in mind.
