6 Steps To Buying The Right Shed
Step #1 –GET ORGANIZED!!!:
Is your garage or shed CLUTTERED?
Our “Buy the Right Size Guide” will help you choose the shed to fit your needs
Example of our 12’x14’ set-up
Suggestion: Take all of the STUFF you want to put in your new shed, lay it out in your yard and measure it’s required area. This will give you a good idea of what size you need.
Step #2 – Select the Best Style:
Most people match the roof pitch of their home. View our Pine/Vinyl and Duratemp shed photos for the closest match. Note: A 7 pitch Cape is our #1 seller
7 Pitch Roof
10x14 7’ Cape
Step #3 – Select Door and Window Placement: See photo above
Where would the double doors work for you? Since each shed is custom built we can locate doors and windows to your specifications.
Step #4 – Bring in photos of your house and yard:
Show us a photo from the street to the desired location of your shed. This helps us assess if we are able to bring your shed in fully assembled. Also show us how level the ground is at your desired location.
Step #5 –Choose your colors:
Most customers wish to match their home!! Bring in color samples and don’t forget your roof color!
Step #6 – Now You’re Ready:
You’ve done your homework so now let our knowledgeable staff assist you in creating the right shed to fit your needs.
* Please note: We do not sell our sheds online. It is our experience that our customers need the individual customer service we give to each sale.
True Story: A gentlemen walked in with an online order he placed with a competitive company for a 12x20. He said: “If you can meet or beat this price maybe I’ll buy it from you”. Upon reviewing his order we advised him:
#1 - you should not have a 6’ tall wall in a large 12x20 shed, 7ft walls look more proportioned.
#2 – our buildings have a 2x8 pressure treated floor joist not a 2x6
#3 – our roof pitch is 7 pitch not a 6 pitch – you will have better storage area
#4 – we offer 24x36 windows, not 18”x27” and architect shingles as free upgrades
#5 – we were $400.00 less …guess what he did?
This is a great example of comparing “apples to apples” before you buy.
