Preparing a Site for your New Keen’s Portable Buildings Garage, Carport or Storage Building
When preparing the site for your new portable enclosed garage, carport or storage building from Keen’s Portable Buildings, there are a few things you can do beforehand that will make professional installation easier, quicker and more affordable.
First, it’s critical to know the location of any underground wire, gas lines or utility lines. If the site you choose for your new portable enclosed garage, carport or storage building does have any of these, extra safety precautions are in order, and you may have to choose a different site if the potential for danger warrants. Please remember that Keen’s Portable Buildings is not responsible for any damages that may occur if our professional installers are unaware of buried objects.
For quicker installation, please level the ground where you want your portable enclosed garage, carport or storage building to stand. If needed, our crew can dig a base rail into the ground for an extra labor charge. Our installers also can adjust the legs up or down two to three inches on the bottom rail of your carport or steel garage if your site is not completely level.
Keen’s Portable Buildings also can install your new portable enclosed garage, carport or storage building on a concrete slab, stem wall or paved black top. When pouring a concrete slab, keep in mind that the frame for your unit will always be one foot shorter than the roof in length. This will help keep rain and snow from coming into the open ends. Also, know that while we can not bolt any steel building directly to any home or building, we will place it as close as possible.
