Site Preparation Services

Shed Site Preparation - Shed Stone Base Installation ServicesWe Offer Shed Site Preparation Services for Your New Shed!

When installing your new shed, it is important to choose the right type of foundation. Before your shed arrives on delivery day, you are going to want to be sure the location is prepped and ready for installation. As long as your site is fairly level and free of overhanging branches, we should be able to install your shed without an issue. If that’s not the case, however, our team can help you choose and prepare the site. Preparation may include gravel, leveling or cement footings; the cost of this service varies based on the type of preparation necessary.

Gravel Shed Foundations

Shed Site Preparation Services NH MA ME RI VT

Many people opt for gravel shed foundations, as they provide an ideal mix of stability and flexibility. The unique structure of gravel allows it to effectively support the weight of a shed without shifting or cracking under pressure, ensuring that your shed stays firmly in place. The support a gravel base provides for your shed is much better than that of concrete blocks because the weight is supported throughout the entire frame of the structure. Additionally, a gravel shed foundation allows for adequate drainage, preventing water from pooling around your shed and causing damage to the structure or surrounding surface areas. Whether you are looking for security or practicality, a gravel shed foundation provides the perfect solution.

Benefits Include: Better support, better drainage compared to concrete pads

Concrete Block Shed Foundations

Site Preparation Cement Block Base

Concrete blocks are an excellent choice for shed foundations for a variety of reasons. First, they provide a solid and stable base that will keep your shed from shifting or sinking over time. Additionally, concrete blocks are well-insulated, which means that they will help to keep your shed nice and cool during the hot summer months. And perhaps best of all, using concrete blocks as a shed foundation is very simple and straightforward – all you need to do is set the blocks in place on a level surface.

* As long as your installation site is fairly level, we will do this when we arrive to install your new shed, which is free of charge.

Benefits Include: Easy installation, no cost (included with our sheds)

Cement Footings

Cement Footings for Sheds Installed

Cement footings can offer several advantages for your new shed. Firstly, they will provide excellent stability, essential for safeguarding your shed against shifting soils or harsh weather conditions. The raised structure can also reduce the risk of flooding or dampness and are easier and quicker to install than traditional concrete slabs, saving both time and labor costs.

Unlike traditional concrete slabs, which require a flatter and more level surface, cement footings can be built on uneven terrain or slopes. This makes them suitable for various types of landscapes and allows you to choose the most convenient spot for your shed. They are also known for their strength and resilience, making them a great long-lasting solution for your shed. Additionally, they require minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective choice in the long run.

Benefits Include: Better support, better drainage compared to concrete pads. Can be installed on uneven terrain.

Concrete Pad Shed Foundations

Site Preparation Concrete Base

While more expensive than gravel, a concrete foundation is a great option for creating a strong and sturdy structure that will last for years to come. Concrete is not only durable, but it also provides excellent support for heavy loads like outdoor equipment and vehicles.

Benefits Include: Superior durability and support for your shed

* We do not currently provide cement slabs (Contact us for a referral). We also offer a “no floor” discount if you choose this option and the walls can be installed directly on the pad.
