Q. How do you deliver my building to me?
A. We use a specially designed flatbed truck to deliver your building fully assembled right to you.
Q. How much space is needed to get my building into my yard?
A. Typically we need a horizontal clearance of 2 foot wider than the width of the building and we need an overhead clearance of at least 13 foot. And yes, we've put buildings in with much less than this. We appreciate as much room as your location will allow! If possible, we'll come out and check your location to see if it's possible to deliver your building. If not, see the next question!
Q. What if you can't get the building into my backyard?
A. Usually trimming a tree limb, removing a gate or a fence post will help. If for any reason we can't access your yard to deliver your building we can build it on-site.
Q. How long does it take to get a building?
A. In-Stock Buildings can be delivered within a few days not weeks.
Special order buildings can take up to 3+ weeks to be built at our Factory in Hamilton, Georgia.
Inclement weather will delay the delivery of your building.

Q. Will my building rust?
A. No. Whether you choose aluminum, steel siding these are mostly maintenance free. We recommend an occasional washing to remove dirt build up. We also use stainless steel siding screws to prevent rust from the fasteners. Wood sided buildings, like your home, require more maintenance.
Q. Do you offer custom door and window placements?
A. Yes, and at no additional cost to you. Doors and windows can be placed anywhere on a wall provided it doesn't effect the structural integrity of the building.
Q. Can a garage door be placed in any wall?
A. Garage doors can be placed in a wall if the wall height, and width, permits. As well, this depends on the specific building type you select.
Q. Do you offer electrical outlets/lights?
A. Yes. However, electrical outlets and lights should be connected per the National Electrical Code by a licensed electrician. We can also add additional lights and outlets as you require. The major cost for electrical service is installing wiring from your home to the storage building. The safe approach is to have a local licensed electrician connect the wiring for interior lights, outlets, and switches once your building is in place.
Q. Do I need a permit to put the building in my yard?
A. Please check with your local County and City ordinances to see if you are required to purchase a permit.
In areas where our customers can buy a permit from their county governments we recommend that you do.
