What to Look For in a Shed Dealer

If you have decided that an outdoor structure is the solution to your storage and organization needs, you’re making a great choice! A quality shed building made from LP® products can provide lasting durability, beautiful finishes and style options far beyond those of your typical outdoor shed. But to find a shed dealer that offers these advantages can take some investigating, since sheds are available everywhere from big-box home improvement stores to your local handyman. Not all shed dealers offer the same products, options and services. Here’s what to look for to find the best shed dealer for your money.
  • High construction standards. A shed is a big investment, and you want to be sure it is well-constructed so it can provide many decades of service. Look for a dealer that constructs its buildings in a quality-controlled environment and protects components from water damage.
  • Delivery and set-up. An experienced, full-service dealer will be able to provide prompt delivery and set-up of your new shed. He will check the foundation for the shed and ensure the shed is placed properly. Some dealers will also prep your site for an additional charge. If you have a question now or in the future, the dealer should be ready to assist.
  • Warranty coverage. A shed warranty can give you great peace of mind. Individual LP shed products come with industry-leading warranties, such as the LP® SmartSide® 5/50 Year Limited Warranty with a full five-year labor and material replacement feature and a 50-year prorated warranty on siding and trim. See for complete warranty details. Some shed dealers will also offer a warranty on your shed as a whole.
  • Financing options. Many customers need a shed but can’t afford the entire cost upfront. Some dealers offer competitive financing or rent-to-own programs that allow customers to purchase a shed with a small deposit.
