Do I need a concrete slab for a shed or a garage?

FOR SHEDS: No in most cases. The steel joist system has more than adequate strength to support your shed on almost any type of soil, gravel, or lawn. Only when your shed is to be located in an area that is below the grade of the rest of your yard shall a concrete pad be considered for extra height and drainage. If your intended use for the building requires a concrete floor due to the weight or type of materials to be stored in it, a concrete pad may be ordered through us. FOR GARAGES: Yes in most cases. The point of a garage is more than just storage, but an area to work and park. A concrete pad is a good idea.

Are there any assembly costs?

All prices include installation. A delivery charge may apply to buildings built or delivered further than 30 miles from our location.
