A shed is not always just a shed. Yes, it may have four walls, a floor and a roof. But, hint: You want more than that. The key is finding those elements in a shed that will last through Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, year after year.
Don’t buy that shed!
OK, wait. Buy a Cook shed, but before you do that, there are a few things we need to clear up.
Purchasing a used or pre-owned shed can be tricky. You’ve probably been searching for a good deal, but then you also want to ensure the quality is still there. We understand that when you’re excited and ready to buy it's easy to overlook the minor details. But, the minor details today can make a big difference on down the road.
No one can ever have too much storage space it seems. But, sometimes you need more than just a place to store your old college memorabilia or Christmas decorations.
If you’d like a quiet place to work from home, covert your shed into a home office! Portable buildings also serve as great studios and hobby centers. While you could use the shed just as it comes, some people prefer to go above and beyond, creating a truly ideal work space for their needs.
It’s important to note that this should only be done if you own your shed. Though our rent-to-own program is a great offer, you'll need to wait until it is fully paid off before making any permanent changes. One of the benefits of the rent-to-own option is that you can actually get a feel for if this shed is the right size for your DIY home office or not. If you find it's too small you can always trade up to a larger size without losing your investment.
Another warranty claim. Yikes! Not what you want to see coming in after so many years of success (since 1984). The shed was sound. Everything still protected, but the siding was showing some wear.
You’ve finally decided to take the chance, but that nagging voice in the back of your head has started piping up again -
Since you’ve taken care of your post-Winter cleanup last month, it’s time to start looking forward to the Summer months - sunny skies, warm air, a nice breeze, a few barbecues and the chance to finally show off the patio renovations you made last Fall.
You may be considering a shed you saw at your favorite big box store in town. There are many who do choose these shed options.
But, after constructing sheds for 35+ years, we just like to caution customers on making a hasty purchasing decision. We want our customers to have all the facts as they choose the shed that will become their workshop, storage room or garage.
