For years we have built wood sheds, barns, houses, and cabins.
It seems like you could simply throw random materials together and call it a shed. Believe us now days there are some that do and charge a lot.
Below is an example of some cost cutting mistakes we see often in our competitors:
- If you use untreated floor joists you will stand the high probability of the floor giving out early. You need to insist your floor joists are treated.
- The wrong nails used for treated wood will lead to the floors coming apart or nails rusting. We use galvanized nails in our treated wood.
- When a wall is built with non galvanized nails in the wood siding the nails will rust and cause the panel and paint to pop off exposing the interior.
- Siding nails set at the incorrect depth can lead to the nail heads pulling through the panels after expansion or contraction.
- Unapproved paint on the siding often will lead to paint failure from improper adhesion or lack of coverage needed on the siding.
