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.).

No. Companies that employ sub-contract labor eliminate their ability to control the quality of the building and installation. All Reeds Ferry Sheds® are built and installed by Reeds Ferry® employees 100% of the time. Total company staffing ensures that our carpenters and installers have the experience, training and oversight necessary to do the job, and it ensures they have the best tools and equipment available .

Yes, even with snow on the ground. Our installers 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.

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.
