11. Can I add a side awning at any time later?
Yes, this is as simple as cutting a neat slot in the wall sheets at each portal frame, inserting a flat plate bracket to pick up the column inside, and bolting the rafter to it outside the wall to extend the awning you choose.
12. I have a steeper roof pitch on my house. Can I get a steeper roof pitch on my garage?
Yes you can. Our roofs can be 11 degree, 15 degree, 22 degree, 30 degree, 45 degree as well as the "Mansard" barn roof and Dutch gable.
13. What deposit is needed to place my order?
The deposit amount depends on the type of works involved. If it is domestic building works, the deposit amount is governed by the QBCC – 10% for contracts less than $20000 and 5% for contracts over $20000. If it is a farm shed/non-domestic building works or a kit only sale, we ask a deposit of 30% of the price of your kit. If you wish to do your own council prior to the order, we will accept a minimum engineering deposit of $500 with the balance of deposit due prior to ordering the kit.
14. What is the time frame from ordering my kit to it being delivered/built?
For kit-only sales not subject to council approval being completed, there will be a lead time of about 3-4 weeks from order to delivery time. For fully built jobs, the completion time is about 6 weeks from receipt of council approval.
15. Will my building be covered by a warranty?
Yes, the Bluescope Steel 15 year warranty applies (with conditions). If your shed or carport is constructed under a domestic building works contract you will also have the peace of mind of the QBCC Home Warranty Insurance Scheme.
