Shed Foundation — Do It Right Or Else

When purchasing a shed, the foundation is often the last thing that most people think of. As it turns out though, this happens to be the most important part. If you don’t start with a decent foundation, you’re setting yourself up for troubles down the road. If done right, you’ll never need to mess with it again. So let’s discuss the options: -Wood-based shed foundation -Concrete Pier foundation -Concrete Slab foundation Wood Shed foundation Believe it or not wood foundations can be one of the best. It is certainly the quickest and least expensive, and if you get pressure treated beams, you can avoid a lot of problems with rot, and other issues commonly associated with using wood as a foundation. The most important thing with this design is that you want to find ways of allowing moisture to evaporate out of the wood easily. Wood is also very handy if you ever decide to move your shed. With other foundations, this isn’t quite so easy. This works best with fairly level ground. Pier Shed Foundation Concrete piers are nice when your ground isn’t level. It’s pretty easy to use the piers, and some shims to make your shed, level. Also the concrete is much less susceptible (compared to wood) to rot. Over time, it will last quite a bit longer. It isn’t quite as portable as a wood foundation either, although, it’s a lot better than at least one other type of foundation. Concrete Shed Foundation You’ll want to use these for a variety of reasons, but none of those reasons include portability. That foundation is staying put basically forever, so once it’s installed, don’t expect to ever move it. If done right, you can’t have a better foundation, but you can run into problems if it isn’t level, or not thick enough. Be sure to do your homework in that regard. It’s really nice though if done correctly, because you’ll have a flat surface for your shed to rest on, and it will be easy to assemble it.
