Genuine Sheds and Studios Info Sheet

We pride ourselves on happy customers!

Please review the following details carefully and let us know if you have any questions.

Details to Confirm Advance

  • 1

Confirm setbacks, noise ordinances, guidelines and/or permits required by your county, city or HOA.

  • 2

Ground must be prepped in advance in the following ways:

Best: A poured concrete foundation

Better: Prep area with critter screen and compacted with road base or dirt and gravel mix

Good: Cleared ground, weeds pulled, sprinkler heads capped.

  • 3

Shingles: Please email or text a picture of your house roof if you'd like us to try and match it.

  • 4

Select and secure doors, windows, flooring, ceiling fans, lighting fixtures, handlesets, paint and any other items being installed by us. Lowe's in-stock doors, windows and flooring can be ordered through us and delivered with the rest of the materials. All items must be onsite and ready for install by the start date.

  • 5

Trenching for electrical if needed

  • 6

Bathrooms- please let us know in advance if you will be designating a bathroom for our crew or if you’ll be providing a portable unit. A neighboring gas station or store may be a suitable option as well.

What to Expect - Project Timeline

  • Delivery

Materials will arrive on-site 1-2 days before your start date (unless otherwise specified) via a Lowe’s
delivery truck. Please inform us of any specific instructions the driver may need to bring the materials, on a forklift, within 20' of the build site (having to carry materials in by hand instead may incur a fee TBD). Typically, we are in direct communication with the driver day-of and you will not need to be home.

  • Placement

Final placement of the shed must be confirmed in person the morning the project starts. Please plan
on being there to verify it before we begin. As an alternative, please stake or flag the 4 corners where the shed will sit in advance. Having to relocate the shed will result in a fee TBD.

  • Work Days

We may arrive as early as 7:30am and work as late as 7pm.

Typical work days are 8:30-4:30pm Fri-Tuesday.

  • Timeline

Please let us know in advance if there are any restrictions or special circumstances which may limit our work hours or days (HOA, neighbors, noise ordinances, etc.) so we can do our best to plan around them. Last minute stop-work notices and/or additional work days as a result will incur a fee TBD ($500/day minimum).

Other Conditions

  • Location

Remote locations / vacant lots / limited power / difficult access may require an additional fee TBD.

  • Travel Fee

Locations outside a 50 mile radius from the City of Ventura may require a travel fee TBD

  • Waste Disposal Fee

Covers removal and disposal of all construction waste from the site upon completion.

  • Changes to Date and Cancellation

Changes made less than two weeks in advance of the agreed upon dates will incur a fee. We require at least a 4-week notice of cancellation for a full refund of deposit.

  • Painting and sealing

  • Properly sealing and painting is an important part of your finished shed and protects your investment. Our Painting Package includes waterproof sealing along with your choice of paint. We understand some customers may choose to DIY or hire a separate painter. Please note that any professional painter should also provide sealing as part of their bid. We will provide you with detailed instructions and a waiver if you choose to go that route. 

  • Workmanship Warranty

For 5 years under normal residential use, on work performed by our company to the original customer given that all exposed surfaces are properly sealed and painted within 90 days of completion.
