Replacing metal shed floor

I have a metal shed that is perfectly sound except for the floor, which has rotted through. It was made of particleboard.

I was wondering if I could replace the floor rather than replace the entire shed.

If I could do that, would it be necessary to completely disassemble the shed, or could I just detatch it from the floor somehow or the other and move it off to the side while I install the new floor?

I suppose that I would have to disassemble this one to install a new one, but it would seem to be way easier to just move it to the side to replace the floor. But, having no experience in the matter, I could be totally wrong.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums!

You could tear out the existing floor and then prop up 1 side[at a time], finish removing the floor and install new on that section. If you add flashing under the shed wall, covering the edge of the new plywood - it won't be as prone to rot.

You might be able to unscrew the shed and move it to the side [in 1 piece] but generally those metal sheds are kind of flimsy once you cut them loose from the floor.
