When To Choose a Concrete Foundation

There is one main scenario when you should choose a concrete foundation for your shed: When your shed or garage doesn’t have a floor.

If you shed or garage comes with a floor, then a gravel shed pad is your best choice. A gravel shed pad helps to keep the bottom of your shed dry and it reduces the amount of water that splashes up against the sides of the shed. It is the preferred foundation for sheds with floors.

If you purchase a shed without a floor, we’d be happy to install a concrete slab for you. In addition, many larger prefab garages will also need concrete footers and concrete floors installed.
