Some shed buyers quickly discover their shed's flooring may not be as durable as they thought when they made the purchase. They ask "Why is my shed floor rotting?!" The simple answer is that their shed wasn't built to withstand the moisture that is unavoidable in any backyard.

This is why it's essential to know how your shed floor is constructed. Your belongings are valuable and need a secure, durable floor that will protect your things.

Inside Utility Shed

We’ve had some customers, by just a picture, doubt that our warranties can be trusted. All they see is OSB (oriented strand board), which in the history of construction has proven susceptible to rotting and retaining moisture.

How to Choose a Pre-Owned Shed -- Shed and flowers in yard

If you’re looking for a discounted storage shed then a pre-owned shed is a great option. But, before you buy, you need to make sure you can trust your pre-owned purchase to last.

The great part about portable buildings is that there aren’t any moving or mechanical parts that can wear out like there is on a car or a boat. But, that doesn’t mean you can trust that every pre-owned shed will make for a long lasting purchase.

Cook Portable Warehouses does offer some pre-owned sheds from their local dealers found across 14 states. If you’re looking for a pre-owned option, give your local dealer a call to see what is available.
