When every Cook building is delivered our drivers make sure it’s up to our high Cook standards. Each building is delivered fully assembled, set-up and leveled as part of our free service. This leveling process ensures that the shed’s doors and windows function correctly.

The initial leveling method includes using wood shims to raise the building up to 6 inches. But if your shed requires more than 6 inches of leveling, we recommend using 4-inch, solid concrete blocks instead. For more on the requirements to complete prior to the delivery of your Cook building, read this blog post!
