Radiant Barrier Siding and Roof Decking

We're in the midst of the dog days of summer! And if you're looking for a way to keep things cool when it heats up outside We use LP SilverTech Radiant Barrier Siding and LP SilverCrest Radiant Barrier Roof Decking on our Premier and Premier PRO series buildings. This high-tech material helps block radiant heat from entering and can keep the building (and all of your possessions inside) up to 30 degrees cooler!

LP Radiant Barrier Siding and Roof Decking is a high-quality product that is both insect and rot resistant and can significantly brighten the interior of any TUFF SHED building.

It's also environmentally friendly! All materials that are used are harvested from sustainable, self-regenerating Aspen forests. Aspen trees are harvestable within 15 years, which is roughly half of the time required for other wood species.
 


Best of all it can be added to any ranch style building for the special price of $.50 per square foot, or any barn style building for $.75 per square foot. Treated floor decking resists rot and insect damage and can be added to any storage building for the special price of $.50 per square foot.

Customization

Here at TUFF SHED we design every building with customization in mind. While our product assortment starts with standard models and sizes, our ability to customize backyard buildings is unparalleled. That's because we always give our customers the choice to add options such as windows, paint, vents, shelving and lofts, plus we allow our customers to take customization one step further, giving them the opportunity to add elements like porches, alter the building "footprint", increase the roof pitch, add tile shingles or metal roof, change to lap siding, etc. This level of customization really sets TUFF SHED apart.

Whether you want your TUFF SHED garage to perfectly match your house, like the building featured in the top photo, or if you've always dreamed of owning your own observatory (no-kidding), like the one-of-a-kind building in the bottom photo, we can customize your building to meet your every need!

Financing Programs Make Owning a TUFF SHED Easier Than Ever!
 
Besides providing great value with our buildings and services, TUFF SHED offers our customers some great financing options.
 
That includes installment financing through a national bank with competitive interest rates, and a variety of loan lengths. With loan terms ranging from 24-60 months and customer A.P.R. ranging from 9.95% - 17.95%, there are many TUFF SHED building models that start at less than $50 per month!* Compare that with the typical rent of more than $100 per month at an offsite storage facility, and the value is clear. And for customers with less than perfect credit, we've found a secondary financing program that has worked for many TUFF SHED customers.
 
So if you have lots of extra stuff, but not lots of extra cash, don't worry. Odds are that you can still get that TUFF SHED building of your dreams, and sooner than you might think. 
 
*With approved credit from Citizens State Bank. Down payment and minimum monthly payments required. See sales person for details.

Feature of the Month: New In-The-Door Windows

TUFF SHED now offers an in-the-door window option, which can be added to a variety of TUFF SHED doors. Our standard shed door is already legendary in quality...and now you can upgrade the look of your TUFF SHED storage building with windows that are both functional and asthetically pleasing.
 
In the past, customers had to select a skylight if they wanted natural light in their shed but were concerned that adding a traditional window would create a security concern. So TUFF SHED introduced transom windows in 2013. They were a big hit, and the in-the-door transom window upgrade is the latest in this window evolution. And the best part is this upgrade can be added to our shed doors for a modest price. 

Single, in-the-door transom window:
  • 41” x 8”
  • Tempered glass
  • On single 4’ wide shed door
  • $89 each

Double, in-the-door transom windows:
  • 29” x 8”
  • Tempered glass
  • On double 3’ wide shed doors
  • $59 each ($118 for the pair)

The in-the-door transom windows can be added to single and double shed doors. The double door option is sold separately, as is the designer door trim (wainscot design shown at top).

Surprise...Another TUFF SHED!

Typically, the floor system included in our TUFF SHED storage buildings is something that sets us apart as one-of-a-kind. But the floor of this TUFF SHED building is even more unique than normal. That’s because it was built specifically for players on the Bakersfield Condors professional hockey team to skate through during pre-game introductions. This custom building is built on heavy-duty casters so it rolls easily on and off the ice. Before each home game, the team fills the shed with fog, then the mascots pop open the custom-painted doors and out skate the Condors!

Feature of the Month: Floor System

Our floors are so innovative and durable, they set us apart. TUFF SHED revolutionized the shed industry by incorporating 2"x6" hot-dipped galvanized steel floor joists, ensuring the building's solid foundation for years to come. And better yet, this floor system comes standard on our Premier and Premier PRO Series buildings.

We've added LP SmartFloor Plus (bottom photo), a sturdy 3/4" thick tongue and groove material that's treated to resist insect and moisture damage, and comes with a high-tech resin overlay that looks great, adds traction and eliminates splinters.

Stomp on it and FEEL the strength!

Why settle for one garage when you can have 13? This multi-bay garage is one of three at an apartment complex in Salt Lake City, UT.

Holiday Vacation Checklist

Safety and security is of the upmost importance here at TUFF SHED, as evidenced by our patented locking door handle and our steel reinforced doors! So we can understand how important your home's security is too! If you're planning on taking a trip this holiday season, your pre-trip preparations should include home security measures, so you won't leave the family's most expensive possession - your home - vulnerable to burglars.

Tell a Trusted Neighbor: If you have a neighbor who you know and trust, let them know when you'll be gone and ask them to keep an eye on your home. Leave your contact information so they can reach you if there are any problems.

Secure All Doors and Windows: Doors and windows provide the main entry points for thieves, so make sure they are secure.

House Alarm: If you have an alarm system set up in your home, be sure to notify your security company of your vacation and how to reach you in case of emergency.

Notify Local Police: Call your local police station to ask if they accept vacation notifications. Some will let you leave your contact information so they can get ahold of you if there are any problems and in some communities they might even drive by your home to check things out.

Place Mail and Deliveries on Hold: USPS has a very easy to use online mail hold form that is available for most addresses. If you're expecting a UPS or FedEx delivery, contact them with your tracking number and they should be able to hold your packages for a limited time at one of their facilities. Also place other deliveries like newspapers on hold.

Interior Lighting: Place light timers on some lamps throughout your home. A few days before you leave, set and activate the timers for your lights and a radio or TV to be sure they're working properly.

Vehicle Protection: Never leave valuable items visible in your car and be sure to lock your vehicle if it's parked on the street or in your driveway. And if possible, always park your car in your garage. Don't have a garage? TUFF SHED can help you out with that!

- Shelving and workbench include heavy-duty 2x4 brackets.

- Shelving on our Premier and Premier PRO products feature 7/16" thick SilverTech roof decking (silver face side up) for smoother working surface.

- Workbench on our Premier and Premier PRO products feature 3/4" thick, heavy duty LP ProStruct Floor Decking with a high tech, treated Smart Finish on the working surface. 

- Loft on our Premier and Premier PRO products include 3/4" thick, heavy duty LP ProStruct Floor Decking with a high tech, treated Smart Finish on the working surface. Heavy-duty loft includes minimum of 2x6 lumber supports spanning the interior area beneath the loft decking. Light duty lofts are also available for smaller areas that do not need to support "live loads" (i.e. a person). The supports on a light duty loft are 2x4 lumber.

So never trip over tools or dig through boxes again. Make the most out of your storage space and add some shelving to keep your TUFF SHED storage building or garage neat and tidy.
