From questions about delivery to site prep and cost, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions to make the structure buying process as easy for you as possible.
Penn Dutch Structures does not offer site preparation. However, we recommend working with BedRock Siteworks before having your new outdoor structure installed. We suggest you begin with the installation of a quality base. We recommend a minimum of 4 to 8” crushed-based stone, at least 1′ larger than your structure in both directions.
BedRock Siteworks offers excavating and site preparation, stone base, and concrete foundations, and a five-year guarantee that your shed will not shift.
Certain structures such as pergolas, sheds, or garages will usually need permits. Permit regulations will also depend on where you live and how big your structure will be. You’ll need to check with your local departments to determine which structures require permits in your community.
Most larger structures will require a solid foundation before installation. Some of these include sheds, garages, pergolas, pavilions, gazebos, barns, and cabins. For more specific information about which structures require a foundation contact us today!
Penn Dutch Structures offers a removal service for portable structures only, which include runners underneath and are structurally sound. Removal fees will vary so contact us today to get an accurate price for your structure.
Installation time depends on the structure. For example, a pre-built shed can be delivered and installed in less than a half hour. To learn more about specific structure installations, contact us today!
