Learn How to Build a Concrete Pad for your Garage or Shed

After you place and order for a garage or shed from Sheds Unlimited, it is time to prepare either a gravel shed and garage pad or a concrete pad for your shed or garage. Here you will find instructions for building a concrete pad for a one car garage or a multiple car garage. At any time, if you have questions please feel free to contact Sheds Unlimited for assistance in preparing your concrete pad for a car garage.

Follow Local Codes for a Concrete Pad

Each customer is responsible to follow local codes regarding a concrete garage pad. Some towns require a Pad with a Foundation and others allow for a simple Monolithic Pad poured on top of the ground. Customers are responsible to check with local authorities to find out what is required.

Build the Garage Pad the EXACT size of your Garage

The Concrete Pad should be built the size of the garage which the customer has purchased or plans to purchase. Please do not go larger than the building or there could be problems with water flowing under the wall! If you fail to follow these directions, Sheds Unlimited is not responsible for leakage that might occur.

Driveway To the Garage Pad

If a customer desires to have a concrete drive going up to the building, be sure to drop the concrete one inch below the garage pad line to avoid water flowing under the walls. Again, this is very important for keeping your structure dry on the inside.

Anchoring Your Garage to the Pad

You do not need to install anchors into the garage pad unless your local town requires it. Sheds Unlimited will install pressure treated sill plate with 1/2 inch Wedge Anchors every 4’ around the perimeter of the building, excluding the doors. If a local town requires that the bolts be concreted into the foundation, please contact Sheds Unlimited at 717-442-3281
