Which Home Structures Need Temporary Flooring?

So, you’ve ordered a brand-new shed for your garden and are looking forward to putting it up. Then, as you unpack the pieces, you start to wonder about a key feature of your new shed: the foundation of the flooring.

Unless you have dug out and leveled the area where your shed will sit, you might not have yet thought about this aspect of putting the temporary structure together. Plus, you may now be concerned that you will need planning permission or even have to lay a concrete structure.

Don’t worry! There are many home structures that need a solid base but can also benefit from temporary foundations or flooring, which can save you a significant amount of time and money – not to mention stress if you want to move them!

Out of all the structures that use temporary foundations and flooring options, here are some of the key ones:


A shed needs a solid base, and unless your garden is completely flat, you will need to create a balanced level and put down some temporary flooring. If you aren’t sure which type would be the most suitable for your shed, it might be a good idea to contact temporary flooring specialists to help you identify which kind of flooring or foundation would be the most suitable.


A driveway will certainly need a base flooring or foundation in order to support the weight and movement of your car. However, suppose you cannot afford to pay out for a traditional leveling and concrete installation. In that case, you will need to look into some of the temporary options available before you park your car.

Your driveway flooring will also need to be slip-proof, heat-proof, and able to handle chemicals that you might use to wash your car. The good news is that most specialized temporary driveway flooring is designed to do just that, as well as built to handle the weight of vehicles.


Ah, the trampoline! Fun for kids and a great way to exercise, but quite difficult to operate on a wobbly or uneven surface. So, to ensure your kids are safe on the trampoline – even if you are renting your home – you will need to dig a hole in the ground and place down some hardy, temporary flooring. This will create a level surface that can also take the weight of the trampoline and the movements that come along with it.


A greenhouse, whether made of glass or plastic, is a great addition to any gardener’s home and is perfect for growing vegetables and plants.

However, the glass or plastic sheeting on the outside will need securing, as will the flooring, to ensure that it doesn’t blow away in high winds. As such, be sure to put down some temporary plastic flooring to add weight and security to the structure.


Relaying a patio doesn’t have to involve concrete and levelers. In fact, you can place temporary flooring outside your backdoor to create a patio in as little as two hours. Just be sure that the ground is level! Alternatively, why not build up layers? Put down a base layer made out of hard plastic and then lay the temporary stone slabs – easy!
