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 these steps VERY CLOSELY to ensure your Prefab Car Garage will have a long life!

1. Follow Local Codes for a Concrete Pad

Each customer is responsible to follow local codes regarding a concrete prefab car garage pad. Some towns require a Concrete 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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 a 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

5. Sheds Unlimited MUST BE Aware of any Variation in the Concrete Pad

As you see in the conctete pad photos, our Garage Builders can build on may types of concrete pads including those with knee walls, wall variations or a flat, monolithic pad. Before we begin building your garage in our manufacturing facility in Lancater PA, we must have detailed measurements of your pad including the drop from top of the wall to the concrete level. This is very important to ensure that all prefabricated parts of the Detached Prefab Garage fit in place as closely as possible!

4/5 stars. Well built product. Delivered flawlessly and in impeccable condition. My only complaint was it took approximately 10 weeks to get and there was poor communication with the shipping department. I would use them again

Tim from Ct

Very easy to deal with, went up to visit them, ordered the shed the same day and their customer service was above board, friendly , listened and ordered the shed that day, they delivered on time, put it exactly where it needed to go, even the guy who delivered was friendly. Thanks

Michael Valenza from Hatboro

The shed is great but the delivery around trees was amazing!

terry mulryne from Cream ridge nj

My shed was just recently delivered and I couldn't be happier. Easy order, delivery was quicker than estimated, and the quality seems outstanding. The entire process has met and exceeded my expectations. Will definitely extend the referral to friends.

Wonderful, professional company with outstanding customer service and a really good product. I don't often have a purchase experience this positive! Highly recommended. 

Kim T from Wayne, PA

We received our shed few months ago, and we LOVE it. Due to our neighborhood restrictions, it was a long process to make sure everything was just right. The team at Sheds Unlimited were extremely helpful and stood behind us every step of the way. They were AWESOME. When the shed was delivered, there ended up being an error, but they took care of it immediately. We LOVE our new shed, and I HIGHLY recommend these guys to EVERYONE! Well done! Thank you so much for all of your patience and assistance!

I am thrilled with the garage I bought from Sheds Unlimited! I couldn't be happier with it.
It looks great, with everything built exactly as I specified in my order.

The customer service was also outstanding, from my initial inquiry to the final delivery and set up, everyone at Sheds Unlimited was very friendly and professional.

Tom C. from Chelmsford, MA

Really great business to work with, Delmar was great at providing details and very patient with my questions. The price was good so I bought the shed, it took a couple of weeks for it to be delivered but it came today and Nate was awesome in making sure it was level and perfect on the pad. The "mule" got it from the truck to the back of the house with little effort and no damage to the property or shed. It's a good looking shed but best of all extremely well built, very solid. Very happy with my purchase, thank you!

Caroline F. from Wilmington, DE

Great customer service! It was a great pleasure working with Sheds Unlimited, Mark & Austin were the best in answering all my question and concerns. The shipping was a success and I'm a happy customer. Thank you
