Glick Woodworks knows that even the best Amish storage sheds need to rest upon a properly-prepared foundation. Over the years, we have settled upon what we feel is the most efficient, cost-effective, and durable method of constructing the necessary subsurface for the shed to rest upon.

Naturally, shed site preparation has to start with establishing a nice flat surface for our Amish storage sheds. This need for a level surface is complemented by the additional need to ensure that the installation site is properly drained so that there will be no issues.

Stone Pads by Glick Woodworks

Stone pads by Glick Woodworks are offered within 70 miles from our location only.

A level surface is accomplished by removing the topsoil in the area of planned installation and laying down a firm 4 to 5 inch deep bed of crushed stone, also known as a stone pad. The dimensions of this stone pad will extend approximately 1 foot outside the exterior walls of the shed in all directions. At Glick Woodworks we are proud to build our own stone pads to provide your structure with a quality foundation! This will keep the shed high and dry for years to come. Once this necessary amount of site preparation work is completed, it is time to actually bring in the shed for anchoring on the site.

Our Google Reviews

Dave Glick, Jr., is a true professional. He was patient, shared thoughts/ideas, understood my vision and set expectations for me - to make sure we reach my goal.I wanted to build a custom shed that matched my house - including my vinyl siding, windows, roof shingles - Dave said he can make anything happen but I need to do some work and do some research and find the manufacturers on those pieces. That took me some serious work but it was well worth it. I have a beautiful shed that is miniature version of my current home!Folks in NJ - save your time and possibly even money and contact Glick for your shed. I was on the verge of going through a reseller and I'm glad I didn't because the customization would be limited. Your questions would go through the reseller to the builder and back - that leaves way too much open for interpretation.Glick nailed it on my Shed - it's beautiful!

I needed to replace a delapitated shed and got quotes from around the Harrisburg area.Glick's price was the best around. Their online custom builder tool let me pick out all the features of the shed I wanted, and see it in 3d before ordering. The delivery was made exactly when promised and the install team did an excellent job. I couldn't be happier with the process and craftsmanship.I would definitely use Glick Woodworks again.

We ordered a 10 x 16 shed and Glick Woodworks was extremely helpful, courteous, and professional. Dave was great to work with for the sale. Dan was here to prepare the site for the new shed and Derek was outstanding. He took the old shed in a driving rain and never complained. We will/are recommending Glick to all our friends and coworkers. Thanks againCharlie & MaryAnn Mooney

We couldn't be any happier in our purchase of this shed. Amazing quality. Dave was extremely nice and helpful. Shed drop off went smoothly in bringing it behind our home. Not one bit of damage to our yard during the process.Definitely recommend.
