“Durasteel offered us a turn-key solution to utilising their design expertise. They capably coordinated their trusted partners to provide quotations for builders to erect the Durasteel design, including other major contractors as needed for the tilt slab panels and extensive concrete works. This resulted in an estimated price to build the facility that was a massive 50% less than our previous cost estimates! ”

“Overall we are very happy with the Durasteel Building. We are pleased to have chosen a steel building rather than a wooden one. Although there were a few learning curves, we managed to overcome obstacles with the help of Durasteel. Although there were a few learning curves along the way, which there always will be, when something is new and not been done before, we managed to overcome obstacles with the help of Durasteel. Council requirements mewant many adjustments to the plans along the way but we go there in the end. We have now lived in our house for one year and have gone through winter and please to say cosy and warm and heating bills minimal. Power overall, minimum, and house very easy to maintain. We had our builder around to give and annual inspection and pleased to report no crack, no door movements etc. Would recommend to any one considering. ”

“I purchased a Fair Dinkum Shed from the guys at Durasteel and have recently had it constructed. I found you guys excellent to deal with. There were no problems making changes to the shed design along the way. Your product is cost effective and I genuinely enjoyed the entire process. The product seems strong and durable anf meets my expectations. I am very happy and have already sent a number of referrals your way. ”

“I dealt with Durasteel Buildings Direct; Chris helped design my 32x9m farm building. They have a large screen on the wall in the office, this was great as Chris could rotate the design on the screen, and it gives a novice like me the perfect view of exactly what i wanted. Chris and Brent came on site at Springbank to check our progress. This turned out to be a simple build for me and I’m delighted with the finished product. The total cost of the Kitset and Building came in under budget. Thanks guys. ”

“After problems with another shed company I approached Durasteel Buildings for a Fair Dinkum Shed. I was impressed by the quality look and feel of their Show Shed in Sydenham. Richard Howe provided me with excellent service and communication during the design and manufacture process. As a builder I choose to construct the garage myself and found this was easy to put together with the thorough plans I was given. I am pleased with the finished product, it looks great. Others who have seen the garage have made positive comments. I am confident the quality and strength of the Fair Dinkum Shed will protect me and my things. I have already put a friend in contact with Richard for a shed and expect to recommend others to him in future ”

They offer a quality product at a reasonable price. I would strongly recommend Durasteel (fair Dinkum Sheds) to anyone contemplating a building, don't look past the company that can offer a hassle free build. Well done and thank you ”
