Storage Shed Information
Over the years of manufacturing and installing storage sheds, shops and garages, we have answered our customer's questions about the details associated with the quality of workmanship and concerns about preparing for their outdoor storage building project. Below are some of the frequently asked questions our customers have asked. If your question is not addressed, please give StorMor Sheds a call or fill out our contact form and we will get the answer to you.
Do I need to have a building permit?
While most buildings are considered portable structures, you do need to check with your local municipality to determine if your building needs a permit.
What do I have to do to prepare the spot for my new Stor-Mor building?
We require that the area where the building will set be level and have at least 18" of clearance around the perimeter of the building for the crew to work.
Do I need a concrete slab?
While you do have the option of a concrete slab, all of our buildings have a wood floor with a pressure treated base. If the building is going in a grass or dirt area, we recommend having our crews place concrete patio blocks under the base of the building.
How big and tall can my building be?
Since we build all custom sizes, you need to first check with your neighborhood CCR's for size and height restrictions.
How long does the job take to complete?
Most all of our buildings will be completed on the day they are scheduled to be installed. Garage and shop projects that require concrete and excavation take approximately two weeks to finish from the time the building department issues the permits.
How do I know what size I need?
When you visit our showroom, you will be able to walk through many different sizes and styles. If you still need help deciding on a size, we can schedule one of our sales representatives to come out to your property and give you a no obligation, in home consultation.
How do I know Stor-Mor is the best company for the job?
