Site Preparation

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.

Had a 24x36 garage built by these fellas. Their bid was significantly lower than all others. Very happy with everything they did. Highly recommend!

Glick Woodworks built a high quality shed and addressed a delivery issue which they kindly resolved for us. It is a very well-built shed. They customized the size in order to suit the area where it was being placed. Glick is conscientious about customer service. They build quality structures for a good value, offering many options. This shed will last for years and years to come.

My wife and I searched extensively for our new shed in Central New Jersey and Eastern PA. We were looking for a quality built shed for a fair price. We came close to buying our new shed from another shed company, until we stumbled upon Glick Woodworks. Don’t get them confused with Glick Structures, which is a different company. We were very impressed with the materials they used and with their high quality construction standards that we had seen on their website. We were so impressed that we took the long drive from Somerset, NJ to Mount Joy, PA to check out their facility and their sheds.When we arrived we met Dave Glick in the office. Dave was very polite, patient and professional. He explained, in detail, the construction of the sheds and materials they use to build them. We asked many questions and learned a lot. Then he let us browse the grounds of the facility and check out the sheds onsite. As we looked at the sheds, we realized how well they were built. When we had looked at sheds from other companies, we could see some deficiencies in the build quality. That is not the case with Glick Woodworks . The sheds built by Glick Woodworks are top notch. I am a perfectionist and I was very pleased with the quality of the sheds. We were looking for a shed that was just under 200 square feet. We were originally focused on a 12’ x 16’ Dutch Barn, but then changed our minds and decided on a 10’ x 20’ Dutch Barn. We also changed the options on the shed several times. Dave was very patient with us. He would update the invoice, as needed, with every change. He made the entire selection and ordering process very easy.The lead time to build and deliver the shed was very reasonable. I had to get a timber framed gravel pad built on an incline prior to the delivery. We were outside of Glick Woodworks service area for installing the shed pad, so we went with another company which does site preparations. We were able to coordinate the shed pad construction with the delivery of the shed.When the shed was delivered, it was an awesome experience. The driver called when he was on his way and he arrived a little early. He used a radio controlled mule to maneuver the shed off of the trailer and into our yard. Then he manually maneuvered the mule up the hill in our backyard and placed the shed on the pad. He centered the shed the best he could on the pad (it was a rainy day and there was a lot of mud next to the shed pad). He then went inside to ensure the doors were straight and would open properly. He also checked to make sure the windows would slide easily up and down without binding. The delivery only took about forty five minutes. The cost of our shed, including delivery, was significantly cheaper than comparable sheds built locally. It was also cheaper and better built than all of the other shed builders in Eastern PA we had seen. If you have the time, I recommend taking a nice county ride to visit their facility, speak to Dave, and check out the quality of their sheds. Our experience with Glick Woodworks was great. They make a high quality shed for an affordable price. There is no comparison to the competition. We could not be happier. Our thanks to Dave and his superb team of craftsman.Before you buy a shed from another manufacturer, please ask how it is built. Check to see if it has all of the standard features that Glick Woodworks offers at no extra charge.Some of the standard items which make Glick sheds superb, are listed below:2 x 4 Premium Rafters and Wall Studs 16 inch on center 2 x 4 Pressure Treated Floor Joists 16 OC or 12 OC for garages30 Year Architectural ShinglesRoof Paper under the shingles as in house construction.
