Kelly Moore Sheds & Marketplace: Your Guide to Proper Site Preparation

Importance of Proper Site Preparation

When setting up sheds, garages, horse run-ins, or any other outbuildings, the first step is always ensuring the ground is adequately prepared. A well-prepared site ensures that the structure will be stable, safe, and long-lasting. It helps in preventing problems such as water pooling, uneven settling, or premature structural wear and tear. In the Quad-State Area, local conditions and regulations may affect how one goes about this task.

Steps for Site Preparation in the Quad-State Area

Choose the Right Location: Look for a location that’s away from low spots to prevent water pooling. Ensure it’s not directly under large trees to avoid potential damage from falling branches or leaves clogging gutters.

Clear the Site: Remove all grass, rocks, roots, and debris. This provides a clean slate for beginning the construction process. Our contractors offer shed moving, if necessary. We also demolish and haul old sheds if it cannot be salvaged.

Level the Ground: This is crucial to ensure that your structure is even and stable. Use a builder’s level or laser level to be accurate.

Lay a Firm Foundation: Depending on the structure, this might mean pouring concrete, laying gravel, or placing concrete blocks. Consult local building codes to ensure compliance.

Consider Drainage: In areas like Williamsport, where rainfall can be variable, ensure the site is graded so water drains away from your structure.

Local Permits and Regulations: Before starting any construction, always check with Williamsport’s local authorities for any necessary permits or building regulations.
