Shed Pad in Leola PA

Shed Pad in Leola PA

 

   This shed was did not have a pad under it and was not setting level. I removed the shed with a shed moving machine and installed a pad then moved the shed onto the new pad.

Shed Before Pad was Installed

 

This shed was not setting level with the right side about 1′ lower than the left side. First I had to disconnect the wire cable that took the electric to the shed. Then I moved the shed off of the pad with a “mule” (shed moving machine) then leveled the ground and placed 4×4’s around the perimeter. The 4×4 perimeter was made a little bigger than the shed so it fit perfectly onto the new pad. Then I installed around 4 inches of stone to complete the level pad. The shed was placed back onto the pad and I reinstalled the electrical wiring. I also do shed repairs, including shed doors, roofs, install vinyl siding and much more.

Shed Shingle Replacement

Replace Shed Shingles

   This was a Shed Shingle Replacement because the shingles were deteriorating.

These shingles were deteriorating really bad in the back side and little in the front. The rain water was starting to rot the sheathing on the one back corner. I had to cut a small piece of rotted sheathing away then install the new sheathing and shingles. This customer saved a lot of money by having it replaced before more sheathing was rotted. Most times I’m replacing 2-4 pieces and sometime all the sheathing which of coarse adds to the cost.

The garage door was too low for the customers John Deere tractor with a roll bar. I removed the 9×7 garage door and replace it with a 9×8 garage door.

I had to remove all the vinyl siding and trim around the garage door. I had to replace the interior studding with taller studs and headers over the garage door. Then I retrimmed around the garage door and reinstalled the vinyl siding. I installed the 9×8 garage door which gave just enough height for his John Deere tractor with a roll bar.

I also covered the gable doors on both ends as per the customers request. I changed the windows opening and installed new windows. Then the facia was wrapped in aluminum after which I covered the shed with vinyl siding. To finish the job I installed fiberglass painted shed doors and installed the ramp.

How To Reroof A Shed

Shed roofs will deteriorate with time but don’t fret there are cheap ways to take care of the problem. This shed looked like it would fit better on the burn pile but within a few hours it was back to new.

First I took off the old shingles then removed the rotted sheathing under the shingles. Water spots were visible from the inside so I could see ahead of time that there were a few sheathing pieces that would need replaced. There was an obvious leak shown by water marks and discoloring of the pieces. I also reached up and felt the pieces to feel if they were lose.

Here’s how to shingle a shed. Make sure that all the rotted pieces are removed and the staples pulled out. Then install the drip edge all the way around the perimeter. Tar paper goes on next then the shingles on top. You’ll find a shingle cutting diagram on the back of the packs of shingles. If you’re using architectual shingles for the roof, it’s best to switch to 3 tab shingles for the ridge.

That’s how to reroof a shed
