Step 2: Prepare For Your Backyard Storage Shed

  • Site Preparation

Making sure you have the space ready for your shed is what is going to make it last for a long time. A good gravel or concrete pad is a must when it comes to the site your shed will be resting on.

At Hometown, we offer site preparation, usually consisting of a laser-leveled gravel pad. Placing a shed onto the ground without a foundation can lead to rotting of the frame, settling into the ground, and much more. Having proper site preparation in place also keeps you with a reliable and even shed floor.

Your backyard should have the site prepared before the delivery team shows up with your storage shed.

  • Make Sure Your Backyard is Accessible

Creating ample room in your backyard will ensure a quick and easy shed delivery, and it makes the delivery team’s job a whole lot easier! To make the shed delivery process easier and faster for everyone, it is good to double-check to make sure your backyard is open and clear for delivery.

Be sure to inform us in advance if your site has fences, sprinkler systems, septic systems, or other things to be aware of.

Here is how we plan on delivering your shed to you!
