The floor of the wood sided Utility Shed is the best floor available on the market and its the strong foundation that starts every great shed we sell. Solid 4’’x 6’’ Pressure Treated Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) skids are notched 1 ½ inches for each pressure treated SYP 2’’x 6’’ floor joist to sit cradled in before being toenailed into the skids with nails. This combination of cradle notches and toe-nailing the joist makes a super tough start to a great floor system that will be maintenance free and worry free for years to come. The floor frame is decked with a ¾’’ Tongue and Groove Plywood nailed to the floor joists. Using ¾’’ Tongue and Groove Plywood instead of ⅝’’ or thinner plywood, is what gives our floors the superior strength you can always expect from us. All these features of our floor system give you the peace of mind knowing you can keep using your new shed for years to come. If you are looking for an even greater level of protection for your new shed floor we can apply a floor enamel to the entire floor to make sure the plywood is sealed from any spills that may occur down the road. This coating is applied in a two step process; first, an Extreme Block primer is rolled on followed by the enamel coating, creating a great seal for the lifespan of the building. This spill proof, stain proof, finish is the an aggressive advantage to have in your new shed when the time comes to wipe up unexpected spills.

These features combined with Mennonite craftsmanship provide the building the strength it needs to withstand the test of time and meet or exceed the local roof load and wind zone requirements. The roof pitch comes standard at 4’’ on 12’’ but can be upgraded to 6’’ on 12’’ for an even better looking and more functional shed.
