Avoiding Shed Mistakes: Source, Cost and Building Codes

A storage shed for your property is no small investment, and you naturally want to be sure you’re going about this purchase in the right way. This means avoiding a few mistakes that are sometimes made through this process, which is easy if you’re working with reputable shed professionals.

At A-Shed USA, we’ve proudly assisted clients in both Utah and Colorado with their storage shed and other custom building needs, and we’ve seen every mistake that might be made during this process by clients — and we know how to steer you clear of them. In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over a number of basic mistakes that are sometimes made here, plus how to avoid them to ensure you get the ideal shed for an affordable cost.

Wrong Purchasing Source

One of the most common errors we see from clients in the shed market: Purchasing from low-quality sources. A good example here is the range of catalogs and brochures that are often full of cheap sheds made from flimsy materials. Not only will these sheds likely not last very long, but they may also not meet local building codes, which can lead to costly fines and repairs down the line.

Instead, it’s important to purchase your shed through a reputable dealer or manufacturer. At A-Shed USA, all of our sheds are made using high-quality materials, ensuring they’ll last for years. We also proudly offer custom sheds that can be tailored to your specific needs, ensuring you get the perfect shed for your property.

Going With the Lowest Price Only

While getting a good price on your shed is certainly important, it’s not worth sacrificing quality in the process. Unfortunately, this is something that often happens when people are shopping for sheds; they’ll go with the cheapest option available, without considering other factors like materials and construction.

When it comes to sheds, you generally get what you pay for. A cheaply made shed may seem like a good deal at first, but it will likely start to fall apart after just a few years. In contrast, a high-quality shed from a reputable dealer like A-Shed USA will last for many years with minimal repairs required.

Not Considering Local Building Codes

Another mistake that can be costly down the line: Not considering local building codes when purchasing your shed. Every municipality has its own set of codes that must be followed when constructing a shed, and not following them can lead to fines or even having your shed torn down.

At A-Shed USA, we are experts in local building codes and will ensure your shed is constructed to meet all requirements. This means you can relax and not worry about any potential fines, and can be confident your shed will be safe and legal.
