The Importance of Sturdy Shed Flooring

The Importance of Sturdy Shed Flooring

When planning to purchase a new shed, most people consider the size of the building and how they want the exterior design to look. However, not as many people think about flooring for a shed. It’s an equally important consideration, since storage buildings must be able to stand up to the elements while maintaining their structural integrity, and the floor is one of the primary barriers against damage. It also must be able to take a fair amount of abuse, since you want to be able to store muddy lawn equipment or park wet bicycles inside without worrying if moisture will cause problems for the floor.

ProStruct® Flooring with SmartFinish®: The Better Choice

Traditional plywood is one of the most commonly used materials for shed flooring, but it can split and delaminate. Plywood may also include core voids and knots that weaken the material – and none of these are characteristics you want in a shed floor. That’s why LP has created LP ProStruct® Flooring with SmartFinish®, a strong flooring product that is inherently more resistant to fungal decay and termites than untreated plywood.

  • Treated Wood Strand Technology. LP treated wood strand substrate has no core voids or knots, for long-term strength and durability.

  • LP SmartGuard® Process. All LP ProStruct floor products are treated with a proprietary SmartGuard process to resist fungal decay and termites, even in harsh environments.

With LP ProStruct Flooring, you get an added level of confidence that your storage shed will remain sturdy and secure.
