Utah Sheds Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of ground preparation is necessary?
It is important to have the ground as level as possible. If you choose not to do a concrete pad we recommend 2-4 inches of gravel under your shed. We will use blocks where needed to ensure that your shed is level but we prefer to use as little blocking as possible. If you desire us to bring gravel we can provide you with an estimate for doing so but it is still up to you to ensure the ground under the gravel is level.
Is a building permit required for sheds or garages?
Most Utah Sheds don’t require permits. However, We strongly recommend that you check with your city building department to clarify what sizes, setbacks, and shed restrictions there are in your area.
Do you require a down payment?
No. Generally, we will not ask for any money until the building is completed and you are satisfied.
Are the buildings built on-site
We build the components in our factory and assemble the buildings on-site.
How long will it take for my building to be built?
We will typically finish your shed in a day.
What kind of flooring do you use?
Our sheds come standard with a flooring system that includes pressure treated 2×6′s or galvanized steel that are sheeted with 3/4″ tongue and groove plywood (this is the same sheeting that is found on the second story of most new homes). A concrete pad is not necessary for our sheds. Ideally we recommend 2-4″ of gravel.
Do your prices include assembly?
Yes, our prices include on-site installation, some exceptions do apply.
What kind of shingles do you use?
We use 30-year architectural shingles. This is the same shingle that most new, custom homes use. In most cases, we can match the shingles to the roof of your home.
What kind of siding do you use?
We use LP SmartPanel Siding, which is a high-quality engineered wood designed to resist decay. It is pretreated with a Smart Guard process which makes it resistant to termites and fungal decay. It also comes with a baked on primer and is ready to be painted. You can find out more about the panel here.
