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!

Michael from Warminster PA
I am so happy my cousin referred me to Sheds Unlimited . I bought a 10x14 classic wooden shed. They were a pleasure to work and I would pick them again if I had to do it over .
Maria D. from Wayne, PA
I can honestly say my experience with Sheds Unlimited was a pleasant from our visit to the facility in Pa. to delivery.
Jim P from Whippany,NJ
I had my custom 12x16 shed delivered recently and like other people who have given reviews I was equally amazed by how one person could deliver the shed and professionally install it flawlessly. My wife and I visited their location in Gap, PA to view the many designs and options available and were very pleased with the service, knowledge and experience. The final product is very well designed, bulit and looks great! Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited.
Brian from Mullica Hill, NJ
Awesome experience, great shed for less than I could have built it for. No problems with construction , but my final congratulations to the driver who was very professional and went out of his way to get it right, fixing my screw ups while putting it in place.Thank You Phil
Very pleased with the build and delivery. Thank you
Frank Barrella from Galloway, NJ
Sheds Unlimited provided great customer service. Due to a number of issues on our end, we needed a longer than typical time for preparation of the site. They willingly worked with us on the timing of the delivery and on-site construction of our new barn-style shed. The crew arrived on time and completed the project in an amazing short time. If you are a cost and quality conscious customer - you will be happy with Sheds Unlimited.
Mary Jones from Baltimore, MD
From beginning to end, the service was outstanding. I loved the fact that I could buy a prefabricated shed that was such good quality and good looking for such a reasonable price. It is exactly what I wanted and needed without having to hire anyone to build it. Everything was seamless!
Claire Felix from Southampton, NY
From the initial phone call to the final nail, I am completely impressed with this company. I had a challenging backyard with steel slopes so they had to install it on site. Every staff was patient, prompt and courteous working with all my changes and edits in the planning. The crew who installed by building worked very hard all day, even through rain to get it up and looking wonderful. There are similar buildings I could have ordered close in CT, but even with the delivery from PA, Sheds Unlimited was a better package overall. My building is a beauty! I highly recommend this company without any reservations!
