When you invest in a shed, the expectation is that it’ll last longer than just a couple of years. However, just like any other building you might own, a shed requires regular maintenance and upkeep. There will also come a time when most homeowners will need to do some shed repairs to keep their shed functional.
If your shed shows signs of needing repair, you might be wondering if the shed repair cost is worth it or should you plan on buying a new one.
In this article, you’ll find the answer to this question. You’ll also learn more about the cost to repair a shed.
More than 50% of blue-collar workers and 72% of white-collar employees still work from home – a year after the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. In some sectors, almost half of employees prefer working from home. But working from home presents three common challenges: (1) mental health, (2) distractions, and (3) communication and collaboration. So how can you optimize your work-from-home setup?
A storage shed can help you keep things organized and stored correctly. If you don’t spend time on regular shed organization, you’ll often waste time looking for tools and small items. Ideally, you should be able to walk from the front to the back without problems while inside!
That's why today we're sharing some super simple shed organization and storage ideas and tips with you. A storage shed that’s well organized to give you extra space will mean less work and allow you easy access to your tools.
Buying a shed for your backyard can be a significant investment. However, with so many design styles and ideas to choose from, finding the right one can be a challenge for many homeowners. Having a shed means you’ll be able to keep things clean and tidy, but apart from practical uses, it can also be a spectacular feature.
You can use a shed for storing garden tools, garden equipment, or outside tables and chairs. It can also serve as an artist’s studio, home office, or somewhere for the kids to play.
Buying a prebuilt shed and having it delivered fully assembled doesn't always work out as intended. Access to backyards can be difficult for trucks and heavy equipment and often the ground can be too soft, causing large ruts and sometimes getting flat out stuck.
Urban Sheds builds all it's sheds onsite avoiding the need to bring heavy equipment in across your yard.

For a shed to remain structurally sound over a long period of time it needs to have a solid base. This can be accomplished in a number of ways, but some of the most common are: cement blocks, installing a stone pad, or installing a concrete slab.
If the area that you would like to install your shed is significantly out of level (12 or more inches), we recommend consulting with your local Urban Sheds builder to determine the best solution for the shed base. The most common solution is to have your local landscaper install a level stone pad.
Whether you’re looking for more storage, a new workspace or anything in between, a shed or outdoor structure can be the perfect addition to your property. Unfortunately, in most cases you can’t simply commission the project and start building right away—you’ll likely need to navigate your way through some local town or zoning regulations first.
These regulations are very localized and vary by city/town, region or state—so it’s important to understand exactly what rules and requirements apply to you. If you don’t do the proper research beforehand, you might face some steep fines or penalties down the line; you might even end up having to relocate or modify your new shed if it doesn’t meet the right specifications.
Congratulations on taking your first step toward building a new shed! A shed or outdoor structure is the perfect way to add some extra storage space to your property, enhance the overall aesthetic of your yard and increase the value of your home.
Once you’ve completed some of the required research for things like zoning and building permits, and have determined the type of shed you want to build (and the location you’d like to build on), it’s time to find the right contractor to complete the project.
