When To Choose a Concrete Foundation

There is one main scenario when you should choose a concrete foundation for your shed: When your shed or garage doesn’t have a pre-built floor.

If you shed or garage comes with a floor built in, then a gravel shed pad is your best choice. A gravel shed pad helps to keep the bottom of your shed dry and it reduces the amount of water that splashes up against the sides of the shed. It is the preferred foundation for sheds with wood floors. We have an entire article detailing the differences between gravel vs. concrete shed bases! 

If you purchase a shed without a floor, we’d be happy to install a concrete slab for you. Many larger prefab garages will also need concrete footers and concrete floors installed

Up front and honest.

Our site was challenging. Lots of buried boulders and a bit of a slope. They worked with us to decide exact placement of the shed foundation, and saved us money buy moving it to an area with a little less slope. They were up front and honest with us about some of the site challenges,
