What does this price include?
Prices include delivery, construction, leveling of the foundation (with blocks and shims), and installation of chosen options. Prices do not include sales tax.
How is the building constructed?
We use a welded steel floor frame / foundation. We put 2″ thick cinder blocks underneath and shim it with shingles to make the foundation level. We use heavy-duty ¾” plywood flooring. The walls are framed with 2″ x 4″ pine, 16 inches on-center. The siding is Smartside™, which is an engineered wood siding with a manufacturer’s limited 50 yr. warranty. We have an exclusive welded steel door frame with stainless steel hinges welded on so your door never warps or sags. We put a 6″ overhang on the front of most models and a 4″ overhang on the sides and back. We roof your shed just like a house with steel roof edge, 15# felt paper, and 25 Yr. composite shingles.
Does it come with a floor or foundation?
Yes, we use c-channel structural steel to create the foundation. It is constructed of 14-gauge, red primed C-Purling. The frame is welded at the corners and beams are welded across every 16 inches on-center. For 10′ and wider sheds, a center support beam is also used. We place the floor frame on 2″ thick cinder blocks and block it up and shim it w/ shingles to make the foundation level. For the floor, we use heavy duty ¾” plywood; pressure treated plywood or 3/4″ Advantech Flooring is available for an additional cost.
What kind of framing does it have?
The walls are framed with 2″ x 4″ pine boards spaced every 16″ (on center). The rafters are 2″ x 4″ pine spaced every 16″ (on center). On 16′ wide models we use 2″ x 6″ pine rafters.
How are the doors made? What size are the doors?
We use 16-gauge, 2″ x 1″ steel rectangular tubing to construct the door frame. The frame is welded together at the joints and the stainless steel hinges are welded on so the doors never warp or sag. So, what looks like trim on the front of the door and around the outside of the door opening is actually steel. The siding is then screwed onto the back side of the door frames. The door openings are approximately 4’w x 6’h on 8’w sheds and smaller. The doors are approximately 5’w x 6’h on 10’w sheds and larger. Custom door sizes are available at an additional cost.
What kind of siding does it have?
We use 4’w x 8’h x 3/8″ sheets of Smartside™ siding. It is an engineered wood siding manufactured by Louisiana Pacific Lumber Company. It has a wood grain finish and vertical grooves every 8″.
Does it come painted?
Our Classic Sheds come primed but unpainted. We will caulk & paint your shed for an additional fee. You provide the paint in order to match your home perfectly. The building must be painted within 30 days of installation in order to maintain your warranty.
How is the shed roofed?
We roof our shed the same way you would a house. We put steel roof edge all the way around. We put down 15lb. felt underlay. Then we use GAF 25 Yr. 3-tab shingles. We have several colors to choose from.
What is the warranty?
We have a 7-year warranty on workmanship and materials. It does not cover damage due to weather, insects, shifting soil, acts of God, or any other cause beyond our control.
How much space is needed to construct the shed?
Our crew needs a minimum of 2′ on all sides of the structure to be able to work around the building. 3′ of space is ideal and this would allow you enough room to fit a push mower between the shed and other structure. The only exception is the lean-to which is designed to have the back side constructed next to another structure.
Is a permit required?
Check with your local building inspection department. Every city has different requirements and building codes. Most commonly a permit is not required for buildings 120s.f (10’x12′) or smaller, but you still have to meet setback requirements. Also, if you have a Homeowner Association, check with them to see if they have any building restrictions.
