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.

You can also ready Tom's story on his 2 car garage with loft and see how he prepared his garage pad.

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!

Just a note to commend you and your crew for building and delivering my well built Mini-Barn. The Barn arrived earlier than contracted, thanks to Kyle. The delivery expertly handled by Levi, that man knows how to work the 'Mule'.
Again, thanks and you can put me down as a satisfied customer.

Choosing Sheds Unlimitedwas the best decision we made to finish our property. From the first phone call to finished product was a great smooth process. They worked with our town rules our contractor and many calls from us. So many options to choose from giving us exactly what we were looking for. We built a 24x32 two car garage with a room above. The guys arrived  Wednesday at 6 am got right to work until 8pm, returned same time next day were gone by mid day. The whole process is amazing to watch, so fast, so nice and professional. We couldn't be happier and have highly recommended them to everyone that sees our garage. Thank you!!

Courtney VanGelder from Mashpee,MA

Overall experience was excellent. Website was great, ordering was very easy, delivery updates were very professional and the delivery guy was amazing with his placement of my 10x14 shed in less than 15 minutes. Everyone I spoke to was very knowledgeable, respectful, and pleasant to deal with. Could not ask for a better experience, would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.

Jeff from Moorestown, NJ

Friendly staff, fast service, reasonable price and great product. I highly recommend!

Great price and great service! I would recommend them to all my friends. Watching the them take the shed off the truck and put it exactly in the right place to less than 20min. was impressive. Very easy to work the people at Sheds unlimited.
Thanks,
Ken

Ordered classic workshop shed with several custom features and it's perfect.
Well built and nicely painted. My storage problems solved.
Great shed at a great price. Thanks again.

Glenn from Manasquan New Jersey

All good - they did everything they said they would. By taking advantage of some of their promotions, I was able to get a larger shed in vinyl for less than I could have locally for a smaller all wood one. The delivery process was very professional.

Michael Cronin from Jamesport, new york

Great product great service great delivery time highly recommend this company

I am so glad I got my building here! The guys that put up my 16' by 28' were so polite & nice & really hard workers! I never even saw them take a break. The building is solid as a rock & the price was the best I found & I checked at least a dozen places. So glad I bought here!!!

Kelley Fisher from Blandford,MA

We absolutely love our new shed. Sheds unlimited was referred to me by a friend and I couldn't agree more! We had a tough location to put the shed and we were very nervous about the hill...it was no problem at all for them. Great shed built to last with a great price tag. I loved all of the options that are available! The hardest part is to choose what to get! Happy shedding...
