Below are some common questions we receive and some answers to those common questions. If your questions are not directly answered from this page, feel free to contact us at: 610-593-7700 for further help.
(Q) What do you recommend as a pad for our new Storage shed?
(A) It is important to have a level pad for your shed. If going with a stone foundation we recommend that you prepare an area 2 FT larger than your shed size. Example: 12 x 20 - prepare an area 14 x 22. We recommend 3-4 inches of crushed stone. This in turn gives you good drainage and keeps your shed dry enhancing its durability. NOTE: When going with concrete pad, pad needs to be EXACT size of shed due to water drainage. We do not recommend block as they tend to settle uneven and is very difficult to unload.
(Q) Does Stoltzfus Structures do any site preparation work for your shed?
(A) We will deliver your horse barn or shed directly to the site pad. We do not do any site preparations. It is expected that our customers have their site prepared prior to delivery. We do however have several contractors who specialize in site preparation in the area that we could recommend!
(Q) How long is the trailer that will be delivering our new shed?
(A) Our regular delivery trucks and trailers consist of either a F-550 pickup truck and a 32' trailer or a semi with a 40' – 48' Trailer. Your site needs to be accessible to deliver the building with the mule (see video). We need to have width clearance of approx. 2' more than the width of the shed, for example if you order a 10x14 shed we would need approx. 12' wide opening to get the shed through. If we do not have access to your site and we must bring your shed back to our shop you will be charged an extra delivery fee. If we do not have access to your site we can build your shed onsite for an additional 30%.
(Q) What are the different shed options I can go with when ordering a storage shed?
(A) Our storage sheds come with many different options. We can add additional windows, doors, storage lofts, shutters, Vents, reinforced flooring, flower boxes, pressure treated wood ramps, and vinyl siding.
