Let’s talk about some floor options for your building.
The floor is an important part of any building. In a small building, the floor often is not covered with floor covering so not only does the floor support your building and everything in it, but you also have to look at it.
If you choose the correct floor when you are designing your building, you will never need to think about again.
There are four floor options for our buildings and I will discuss each one here.
Treated Plywood Floor
With the same specs as our standard floor with the exception that the joist and plywood are both pressure treated. While our standard floor is a the best choice for the majority of our customers, the treated floor is a good option in high moisture situations. Examples of situations that would benefit from having the treated floor would include a building sitting in an area that stays damp and a building being used for chickens or animals.
While it tends to be a bit more expensive, concrete can make a very nice building floor. We do not do concrete floors but we certainly can and do install our buildings on concrete floors. When we are building on concrete we make a few changes. Our walls get a treated bottom plate and we use a sill seal between the wall and the concrete. We also use sleeve anchors to fasten the building to the concrete. You can have your concrete contractor call us with and discuss specs for the pad.
Any of these floors are a great choice and your exact use of the building will determine which is best for you.
