Is your lawn and landscaping harmed during the installation of a Reeds Ferry shed?
No. Our sheds are prefabricated and brought to your property in sections. As long as our delivery truck can unload somewhat near the final
site, the installation crew is able to carry the sections into position. This means trucks aren't required to be on your lawn, which
eliminates landscape damage. Hand carrying also means we're able to transport a wide building through a very narrow space, (like a
36" fence gate or between two trees, etc.).
Does Reeds Ferry use sub-contract labor to construct the shed?
No. Companies that employ sub-contract labor eliminate their ability to control the quality of the building and installation. Reeds Ferry Sheds are built and installed by Reeds Ferry employees. 100% staffing ensures that our carpenters and installers have the experience and training necessary and are provided the best tools and equipment to do the job.

Does Reeds Ferry install sheds year round?
Yes, even with snow on the ground. Our installers completely clear the foundation area of snow and then install the building. If any settling issues occur we return in the spring to adjust and re-level the foundation.
Are cement footings required for the shed?
If the building is on nearly level ground with a crushed stone base then cement footings are not required. Footings of any kind (or pouring a cement slab), depends on the size of the building, the homeowner's preference, and local building code requirements. (See the bottom of our "Site Preparation" page for diagrams of suggested sono tube placements for each size building). We recommend you review your plan and permit requirements with your local building department. At Reeds Ferry we're experts at navigating the code requirements stipulated by various municipalities. We will help if you experience any permitting issues.
