Sheds & Garages
Shed Site Preparation
The foundation under a shed is no different than the foundation under your home. Your shed and home will be as good as the foundation underneath it. Site preparation is a very important part of a lasting and sturdy shed. If you want the shed to last for generations, then you will want to take your time on placement, positioning, and the preparation of the site where the storage shed will be placed. If the shed is properly set up with a good foundation, the windows and doors will function properly. Also, when you set nails or screws on the workbench, they won't roll away!
Some might say "Ah... it's only a shed. Just drop it over there... that spot looks pretty level!" If you plan on using the shed for a very short term and then having us move it elsewhere, this plan might work for a little while, but most customers want to place a shed and use it for a lifetime or longer.
If you are worried about a wooden structure on the ground, no need! The pressure treated lumber is what makes contact with the ground. Everything else is built and designed to resist the elements and the North Country rodents and insects. Our LP Smartside wall panels have proven durability to resist harsh weather, rich cedar grain texture for enhanced beauty, and SmartGuard® treatment for protection against rot and termites.
