Garage Sheds | Things You Should Know

Jordan Slabaugh - September 22, 2022

A garage shed. Is it a garage, or is it a shed? That is a really good question and one we’re tackling today. What exactly is a garage shed, and what should you seriously consider a garage shed for your home? 

A garage shed, you might ask, Do the two really go together? Or is it just another cheap, combined marketing strategy (or tragedy?) that will leave you with regret years down the road? Not only is a garage shed a thing, it could be a really valuable asset to your property.

In this blog, let’s discuss garage sheds, what they are, if they really mix, and what they offer you!

What is a garage shed?

A garage shed is a portable structure that is built with large enough dimensions capable of housing a vehicle, ATVs, or lawnmowers. This structure is built with strong materials with the capacity to provide adequate support for your vehicle, garden equipment, etc. It has the appearance of a portable shed with the full functions of a garage including a garage door.

Do Sheds and Garages Go Together?

This is a fair question. Especially considering the fact that when you think of a storage shed and you think of a garage, your mind visualizes two different backyard buildings. When you picture a shed, you often imagine a smaller portable structure that has the capacity of storing rakes, small garden equipment, and extra storage items.  Whereas when you imagine a garage, you picture a permanent structure that can house a vehicle(s), lawnmower, or motorcycle.

However, the two go together better than you might have imagined, especially a Kauffman’s Structures prefabricated garage shed. First, let’s go ahead and answer some concerns that naturally come with this speculation.

Garage Sheds in Your Neighborhood and Beyond

Garage sheds are growing in popularity, and you can expect to see them in your surrounding neighborhoods and beyond. The reason for this growing interest is that now more than ever, people are recognizing that sheds and garages are way more compatible than once imagined. And not just compatible, but economical and long-lasting.

Our conclusion is that a garage shed is more than just a shed with a garage door! It is an extra heavy-duty structure that is made to hold your vehicle and farm equipment! And this is what makes a Kauffman Structure’s Prefabricated garage shed so special!

What Makes A Kauffman Structures Garage Shed Different!

Let’s walk through the flooring, interior siding, adjustable ramp, and large roll-up door that Kauffman Structures uses to make their garage sheds sturdy, high-quality, strong, and long-lasting!

Kauffman Structures’ Garage Shed Flooring

One of the most important parts of any garage is its flooring, and at Kauffman Structures, we don’t take flooring lightly. As you can view in the video clip, we are satisfied with only the best of heavy-duty floors.

Our flooring choice is from the brand AdvanTech which is an industry leader for strength and stiffness,  its superior water resistance (check out the video clip for demonstration), and superb fastener holding power which keeps the floor flat. As you might have heard, owner Curtis Kauffman shared, “We feel this flooring is bulletproof!”

Kauffman’s Structures’ Garage Shed Interior Siding

Your prefabricated garage needs a solid floor, but it also needs reliable and sturdy siding to hold up the roof and guarantee reliable protection from outside elements.  

Kauffman Structures knows the importance of quality lumber and siding. We import our high-grade lumber from Canada and rely on Smartside siding, which ensures a tight, waterproof, weatherproof, and insect-proof product.

Storage Shed Siding & Framing

Kauffman Structures’ Garage Shed Large Roll-Up Door

Every garage is accented by a reliable door.  And our garage sheds aren’t just a shed with a garage door! Our garage sheds have options.

You can choose a garage shed with a roll-up door instead of the typical overhead door. Our roll-up garage door option offers easier maintenance and great insulation.

Kauffman Structures’ Garage Shed Adjustable Ramps

We offer heavy-duty adjustable ramps to allow for easy access into your garage shed. These ramps will make a handy addition to your garage shed with the ability to be adjusted according to your needs.

So, whether you need to bring your car, ATV, or lawnmower into your garage shed, Kauffman’s adjustable ramps will make a smooth and seamless transition.
