Thread: Storing motorbikes in a shed

  1. #51
    Mine are in an outbuilding which is just a very big shed. Too big to keep warm so they do definitely suffer from moisture and condensation in the winter. I had them all ACF50'd and that helps.

    £5k isnít just for the shed (I wish!)

    I'm quite surprised at the price of these,, expected them to be a chunk more money.

    I live in a 3 bed end of terrace with a smallish garden, that cost the same as my friends 6 bed detached plus 8 acres of land oop north. Itís madness.

    Storing motorbikes in a shed

    Tony, I have recently had to move house and am in the process of getting a garage mainly for my bike and other storage. Iíve gone for a concrete sectional 9íífoot 6 x 16foot 3 and its coming in at £2519 with Upvc fascias, 4 point locking up and over door and a steel side access door, thats delivered and installed. Obviously smaller sizes would be cheaper I imagine. I have a base down already that just needed extending a bit. Deffo a brick/concrete job is more secure than a wooden/plastic shed imo.

    If it were an R9T then the bike would float just above the ground, obviating the need for a special base.

    Just saying.

    Funnily enough, I think I was looking at that exact garage. It would be perfect if they could put the door on the long edge.

    I have an 8m x 6m metal shed, galv frame, 25mm kingspan throughout (inc roof, purlins, every surface) and itís perennially dry as a bone. 35N concrete base with membrane. Significant ventilation.

    But if you like the idea of wood, and in case a small tweak to budget/spec can press extra buttons for what you get out of it, my extremely fussy builder rates these highly:

    What? That has not been my experience. My shed was laid direct on a concrete slab and the base rotted from the dampness. Even if the slab has a dpm membrane in it it will still transmit moisture. Sheds laid direct on concrete slabs rot from base up. Concrete tiles similarly wick moisture from the ground. Ensure there is a damp proof membrane between anything in contact with the slab and ideally also an airgap.

    Donít see why not. Just ask the manufacturer. Iíve just left a place with a sectional garage and all the panels were the same size all round so I shouldnít think it will be a problem.
