Things to check before placing your SolidLox order


Before ordering, please double check that you do not need additional planning or building regulation permissions. These may not be required if you are replacing an existing structure, even if you are enlarging the footprint of this, but it is better to be sure before proceeding.

If necessary we can probably adjust the design slightly to meet any particular requests, especially the ridge height which can be a particular concern for planners and neighbours. In this way it may be possible to adjust, for example, the way the roof is constructed to keep everyone satisfied.


Your local Building Inspector is most likely to be concerned about this. S/he may even what to check that existing foundations are adequate for your new SolidLox structure. An indicative range of foundation types is shown on all drawings for you to discuss with them and to guide whoever installs these for you.

However, to overcome any problems you might have in this area, we now also offer fixed price foundation piles which can be ordered as part of your ‘kit’ if you want us to erect your SolidLox


It is surprising how easy it is to press ahead with any building project and then find that funds have run out before it is completed. So it really is a good idea to check that you have all the funds needed for the level of project completion that you wish to achieve before placing your order.

Phasing Finances

However, SolidLox buildings all have sarked roofs ready to receive final coverings, so once your ‘shell’ is built it is fairly easy to phase your finances to enable you to complete all other works slowly as your finances permit. This is easily possible, since the ‘shell’ is reasonably resistant to wind, rain and snow, and generally the inside of the building is usable once this is erected.

If you need assistance with any aspect of financing your project, talk to us about how we may be able to help.
