How to Prepare Your Gravel Shed Pad

Gravel Pad for Portable Sheds

Storage Shed Pads and Garage Gravel Pad Preparation

Preparing for your storage shed from Sheds Unlimited is an important procedure. We recommend placing your shed on a gravel storage shed pad as outlined below. Please follow the storage shed pad or car garage pad instructions as outlined. On larger two, three of four car garages and two-story buildings we provide directions on preparing a concrete pad. As always, feel free to call us at 717-442-9055 or email us if you have any further questions.

SHEDS UNLIMITED is NOT responsible for structural problems if one fails to follow the instructions. Failure to follow instructions will VOID the Sheds Unlimited WARRANTY and may incur extra delivery charges!

Follow These Instructions For Storage Shed Pad Preparation with a Gravel Pad

1. Measure the Space for your Building

Please ensure that our “MULE” can bring the shed fully assembled into your backyard (if the area is tight, please request a “built on site” shed)

2. Build a Perimeter for Your Storage Shed

Build a 4″x4″, 4″x6″ or 6″x6″ pressure treated perimeter. The STONE AREA of your SHED PAD should be at least ONE FOOT WIDER and ONE FOOT LONGER than the actual size of the building. See Photos Below. 

3. Fill in With Stone

Fill the area inside the frame with 4-6 inches of 3/4 INCH CRUSHED STONE – DO NOT USE RIVER BEAD STONE or a SMOOTH ROUNDED STONE!!

4. Check for Level

Please MAKE SURE that the pad is PERFECTLY LEVEL and SQUARE

Very impressed with their customer service and quality of construction materials they used for my new 10x16 shed. I could not find any better deals with other companies for this type of shed I am looking for. Thanks again!

Randy from Frederick, MD

Worked with Mark Longnecker & Austin Beachy. From start to finish my experience was nothing short of excellence & extremely professional! Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited. Thank you for a great Garage!

Robert Reda from Westminster, MD

Outstanding quality shed. Even the 4x4 runners were painted.The communication from the headquarters was excellent. Mule delivery was impressive. I researched for several weeks and could not find a better quality shed with various options in this price range.

Jason from Branford, CT

Having seen an example on my neighbor's property, I knew the quality of the products produced by Sheds Unlimited would be flawless. Thus the more important point would be the customer service I would receive. From the first phone call where all my questions were answered and I was assisted in every aspect of ordering the correct shed to meet my needs, I knew this was one great company. The shed is perfect, the delivery person was efficient and personable. I could not be happier with the experience and would highly recommend this company to all.

Judy Hedden from Doylestown, Pa.

Good Price, Perfect delivery, exactly what I ordered and exceptional quality. What more can you ask for? Hurricane Sandy came and destroyed our area, but the shed is standing perfect. Thank you Sheds Unlimited!

The price was great, the shed is well constructed, looks nice, and the delivery was flawless.
Thanks Sheds Unlimited!

Much nicer than I expected. I could not have built a shed with the same quality and workmanship as this shed. Having a construction background I am well aware of a quality product.
Amazes me they can sell for such a low price.
Installation was also done professionally, made sure it was centered on the pad.

Tom Steinruck from Gilbertsville Pa

We had a custom 10 x 12 Shed built, which was the classic Shed Style but a “lean to” version, so that we could mount solar panels on the top. We could not be happier with the design and craftsmanship. They made the roof extra sturdy by putting a beam every foot, which helped hold the 500 pounds of solar panels we installed on top.

Shed Unlimited builds a really nice shed, and the people there are very friendly, and professional. We would definitely have another shed built by Sheds Unlimited, and would recommend them to anyone we know, great sheds ,and great people.

Thanks,

We recently had a two car garage installed. The two guys from Sheds unlimited, Gideon and Mark were unbelievable! They worked so hard and had the garage up in one day. They were also super nice and easy to work with. John, who we dealt with during the design process was also great. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. Our garage is beautiful.

Vicente and Gillian Frontinan from Medford, MA

We couldn't be happier with our workshop shed! Friendly service from the beginning. Quality workmanship! It was delivered ahead of schedule and the delivery was more than impressive! Thanks for everything SHEDS UNLIMITED!
