Buying Guide

Premium Sheds vs. Standard Sheds

Premium Sequoia Sheds give you a truly beautiful and durable garden shed or storage building. They come caulked and painted with the shed and trim colors of your choice, and are built with the best quality components. Our 10-year warranty assures you of their optimum construction and durability. See this post on our craftsmanship for more details.

Standard Sequoia Sheds offer a sturdy but basic storage shed for budget-conscious homeowners or do-it-yourselfers. The exterior is pre-primed but unpainted. The no-frills construction ensures lower costs while still giving you a storage solution. Standard sheds include a 1-year warranty.
 

Standard Ranch Shed

Premium Skids

Premium Shed Skids

We use pressure-treated 4x4’s as skids under the floor joists. They are resistant to rot, water damage, and insects. They rest on our concrete blocks or on your concrete foundation.

Premium Floor

Premium Standard Shed Floor

Floor joists are pressure-treated 2x4’s 16” on center. Floor plywood is ¾ tongue and groove. Exceptionally sturdy.

Standard Floor

Standard Shed Floor

We use white fir joists 12” on center. We use ½” plywood. While thinner than the Premium flooring, this floor is still sturdy due to the joists being only 12” on center. We pass the savings on to you!

Premium Wall Framing

Premium Shed Wall Construction

We frame our walls with 2x4’s 16” on center. We use a double top plate for extra strength. Our wood is appearance-grade White Fir from local mills (on rare occasions there is a shortage, and we have to buy other lumber). We take pains to weed out ugly boards.

Premium Roof Sheeting

Premium Roof Sheeting - Techshield

We use TechShield Radiant Barrier, which is OSB with aluminum foil on the underside. This helps to reflect radiant heat from outside back out of the shed, keeping the shed cooler than regular OSB.

Standard Roof Sheeting

Same as Premium

Premium Shingles

Premium Shed Shingles

We use Pabco Premier architectural shingles, with a 40 year warranty from the manufacturer. For a slight upgrade, we can install a metal roof in a variety of colors. This is also a 40 year roof. On all of our roofs, we use metal drip-edge and underlayment to protect your roof.

Standard Shingles

Premium Eaves

We install a 2x4 on edge around the perimeter of the roof, capped by LP Smart Trim, for a durable 4” eave that protects your shed and looks sharp!

Premium Paint

Blue Ranch Shed with white trims and flower box

We use PPG paint, and offer two-color paint jobs, a main color and a trim color. For a small upgrade fee you can have the door painted an additional accent color. We caulk our nail-heads and trim joints before painting for a water-tight exterior.

Standard Paint

Our Standard sheds come primed but not painted. Paint is available as an upgrade on Standard sheds.

Premium Trims

Premium Shed Trim

We use LP Smart Trim on the doors, windows, corners, and roof edges of the shed. LP Smart Trim is fungus, termite, and water resistant, and maintains its structural integrity.

Standard Trims

We use the same trim as we do on Premium sheds, with the exception that we do not put trim around the roof margins.

Premium Threshold

Premium Diamond Plate Threshold

We install a diamond-plate threshold on all our Premium Sheds to protect the edge of the floor from traffic

Why Sequoia Sheds?

10-Year Warranty

Our premium series shed warranty is simple, no-nonsense, and without fine print. We’ll repair or replace, free of charge, any components that do not provide reasonable service under normal use for a period of ten years from the date of delivery. Sequoia sheds are guaranteed to withstand wind, rain and snow—period.

Quality Materials

Sequoia sheds are built with quality materials. We use LP Smartside Siding and Trim, which comes with a 50-year warranty from the manufacturer. We use Pabco Premier Shingles, rated with a 40-year warranty. And our Premium floor system is made of pressure-treated lumber. That is why we are able to offer a 10-year warranty on all our Premium sheds.

Workmanship

We build with genuine care and skill. We go to great pains to build a finished product that represents genuine, long-lasting quality. For instance, we caulk and seal the exterior of our painted Premium sheds, so no leaks happen. Our sheds aren’t slapped together or carelessly constructed.

Form & Function

Sequoia sheds are designed with an eye toward both style and function. Our sheds look nice, with clean lines and careful paint jobs. Our doors are well over 6’ high, with higher ceilings, ensuring that users don’t need to duck or bend over inside. There’s plenty of room to stretch, and even better, plenty of room for storage.

Built in Red Bluff

Sequoia sheds are locally built by local craftsmen. When you buy local from Sequoia, you are purchasing local product from local neighbors who live in and work in your neighborhood. Plus, most of our wood comes from the Shasta Green Mill in Burney, California.

Value

You might find a cheaper shed—at a box store, for instance. But you aren’t likely to find a better shed for cheaper. What more need we say?

Shed Customization

Each Sequoia shed can be customized to fit your dream or your property. We can add custom options or alterations to any standard shed. Or we can start from scratch, working together on a shed that’s uniquely yours. Either way, you get your shed the way you want it.

Free Local Delivery

We offer free local delivery within 50 miles. For deliveries beyond Red Bluff and surrounding communities, contact us. Pilot car fees apply for certain sheds on certain routes.
