The Difference is in the Details
Hickory prides itself on exceeding our customers’ expectations. From the first interaction with one of our local independent dealers through delivery and installation of your shed, we’ll work hard to earn your trust. Click on the numbered features below to see the attention to detail that we put into every shed we build.
Our 4×6” pressure treaded skids resist rotting and are notched at 12” or 16” on center to ensure consistent floor joist spacing. Recessing and toenailing the joists in the notches locks them in p lace ensures the shed can be loaded, unloaded, and moved repeatedly without any warping or racking of the floor system.
We double the wall studs wherever our T1 – 11 siding has a seam, so that both sections of siding will have a full stud width to be fastened to. This prevents edge tear-outs on the siding and strong adhesion that will stand up to strong winds and years of use.
The diamond-plate door threshold cap creates a solid step that can handle constant abuse from foot traffic and equipment wheels. It prevents wear the tear on the exposed edges of the floor decking at the entrance of the shed…ensuring years of use without cracking, splintering, or delaminating.
Exposed nails are ring-shanked and galvanized for rust prevention. Ring-shank nails have twice the withdrawal strength of smooth-shank nails. The rings around the nail shank lock into each groove along the shank, resulting in a nail that holds tight despite extreme wind or cyclical moisture conditions.
Give your shed & backyard landscape an upgraded look with our 29-gauge metal roof, available in a wide array of colors and backed by a 30-year limited warranty. OR…match your home’s roof for looks or for HOA compliance using our residential grade architectural shingles, available in commonly used colors.
Our metal roofing panels are fastened with color matching screws to ensure the best possible appearance. Our fasteners are designed with an enhanced corr osion resistant coating and use a self-sealing neoprene washer to prevent leaks.
We use double top plates to help intersecting walls lock together and to help support the load from roof trusses.This is especially important to prevent sagging when roof truss and wall stud spacing differ and the truss lines up between two studs.
But the differences don’t end with the quality of the construction. We back that up with material and construction warranties, a variety of purchase and rental options, FREE Delivery and Set-up within 30 miles of your local dealer, and Engineer Certification for ground snow load and wind load. We can even supply engineered plans that will satisfy municipal inspectors.
We also have our own user-friendly 3D Shed Builder that allows you to design the shed you want. Because we don’t use a generic 3 rd party configurator like other brands, you can design your shed with the confidence that we’ll build and deliver the design you’ve created.
