Aftercare & Maintenance
Asgard sheds are made from galvanised metal, and pass through a stringent quality control procedure. so require little ongoing maintenance. However, to maintain the look and prolong the life of your unit we recommend you follow this basic maintenance routine:
All hinges should be regularly greased, to ensure smooth operation.
All locking mechanisms are oiled before use and the regularly oiled after that.
Wash the unit (at least twice a year) with soapy water*
DO NOT USE A HIGH PRESSURE JET WASH.
Replacing a lock:
We have put together a step by step guide showing you how to replace an Asgard shed cylinder lock. You can see the video here or alternatively we also have this available via PDF here.
On metal work, where the paint has been chipped or scratched:
The affected area should be gently rubbed down to base metal with a medium grade sand paper. Treat area with any rust inhibitor product, apply touch-up paint and leave to dry (touch up paint is available from our customer care department).
Asgard sheds are the toughest on the market. To be this tough we use heavy-gauge steel. The nature of the material does mean the shed may get warm inside if built in an area that gets direct sunlight for an extended period of time. If you are storing goods and products inside the unit that may be damaged by excessive heat, we recommend you do not site the unit in an area that is exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods. Try and keep the unit in partial shade.

Condensation in Metal Sheds:
All Asgard units are designed with built-in ventilation holes to minimise the build-up of moisture (condensation) in the unit. However, in extreme conditions (such as a severe frost or heavy snowfall)some condensation may form. To minimise this, ensure the unit is situated in a well-ventilated area i.e. not tight up against a fence or wall. This increased airflow around the unit will reduce the chance of moisture forming.
In the event of heavy snowfall, try to brush any thick snow from accessible areas of the roof of the unit.
In the unlikely event, your unit does get persistent condensation we recommend you purchase a moisture absorber. These tiny units trap moisture in the air keeping condensation and musty odours under control. These are available in most DIY stores for around £3.00 or online from amazon or ebay.
Here are a few more tips on reducing condensation in your metal shed.
