Leave it to Us: The Pros of Hiring Professionals

6 Comments | Aug 26, 2016 |  Get To Know Tuff Shed

It’s a frequently asked question; when it comes time for a new shed, home office, or garage, do you build it yourself or hire a professional? Sure, we may be a little biased, but here are some more reasons why hiring the pros at Tuff Shed to design and install your new building is the way to go.

  1. Materials – A unique advantage of choosing Tuff Shed is our knowledge of the best materials and our buying power with world-class suppliers. Our years of experience sourcing and even developing building materials alongside our suppliers means that you get buildings that perform better. With some components that are exclusive or even patented, Tuff Shed uses building materials that you just can’t get anywhere else.
  1. Time – Few people have the extra room in their schedule to do the necessary hammering, sawing and painting it takes to build a new shed or garage. And that doesn’t even account for the time it would take a handy homeowner to plan a building, purchase all the materials and recruit some friends to help out. While the typical Tuff Shed storage building takes our installers one day from start to finish, it can take a homeowner a month of weekends to build their own.
  1. Style – Unless you have a strong background in construction or engineering, building a unique style may be out of your budget or skill set. We pride ourselves on our wide product set, including studios and cabin shells. Hiring Tuff Shed for the project will allow you focus on the design process…working with our consultants to customize your new building exactly how you’d like it, right down to the window placement, paint color and accessories like shelving or loft.
  1. Warranty – Hire Tuff Shed to design and construct your building and you have the peace of mind of knowing the materials and labor are backed by a company you can trust. Who will you call if something goes wrong with your DIY project?


Of course, these four reasons are nothing close to the full list of why you should hire Tuff Shed for your new building project, but that’s something we’d like you to see for yourself. Take a trip to your nearest Tuff Shed retail location and find out why we prove ourselves as a leader in the shed industry year after year.

  1. I would like to know more about placing a shed in the yard and I cannot have a cement slab. What options do you have for this situation?

    1. Hi Jim, a cement base isn’t necessary for a smaller shed. They can be installed on various other base types or directly on the ground-it’s all dependent on the ground type and size of building. Your local Tuff Shed team would be happy to walk through the options with you, if you’d like to give them a call or stop by the office. You can find all the contact information and location for the team nearest you on our website here: https://www.tuffshed.com/locate/.

  2. I would like to know if anyone else has purchased a shed to be used as an outdoor restroom – no more muddy kids running through the house. Does your company have experience with this? I’m thinking we would need holes put in strategically for the plumbing hook ups (toilet and sink).

    1. Hi Melissa, your local team would be happy to put together a custom design that would work great as an outdoor restroom. They can discuss the style you have in mind and come up with a building that fits your needs, including custom cutouts for plumbing hookups. We recommend giving them a call and setting up an appointment. You can find all the contact information for your local office on our website here: https://www.tuffshed.com/locate/.

  3. Although I’m not in the market for a shed right now (and they may even be prohibited by our lengthy and very tough deed restrictions), I have three questions: I live in a tropical climate where it is humid and we often get strong winds (even gusts of 70 mph or more). How are your sheds anchored down so that they do not lift or bend in such winds? How would your sheds avoid having materials stored in the shed (such as pictures) impacted by the humidity? How well do your sheds keep out bugs, frogs, etc. Thanks.

    1. Hi Robert, those are a lot of really great questions. We do design and engineer our buildings to fit unique climates and environmental challenges across the country, to ensure that our product stands strong. Your local Tuff Shed team would be happy to answer all your region-specific questions and explain how our processes and materials will fit in your area. Our teams are also local experts on zoning restrictions and will be ready to help with all the permitting necessary for your new building. We recommend giving them a call or stopping by the store to learn more. You can find the Tuff Shed location nearest to you on our website here: https://www.tuffshed.com/locate/.
