Why purchase a shed from East Coast Shed Inc.?
We are a locally owned and operated custom shed company in Berkley, MA. For over 25 years we have strived to build the highest quality shed in the New England area at an affordable price and we stand by our workmanship.
Do I need a permit for shed construction?
At East Coast Shed Inc., we advise you to contact your local building department regarding specific requirements for shed building. We will gladly assist you with all necessary documents for you to obtain your building permit.
Do I need to prepare the site for delivery?
We ask that the ground be leveled within a six (6)-(10) inch difference or less. Our installers need three (3) feet of workspace around the perimeter of the shed. The site must be clear of all debris including brush, stumps and other obstructions. Trees in the general area must not have any branches hanging over the site . If the site has been improperly prepared and installation is impossible, there will be an additional fee to reschedule construction of your shed. If you are unsure if your site is suitable, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
Do you need to drive a truck across my lawn?
No. Your shed is delivered on a flat bed truck. We just need to be able to drive up within a hundred (100) feet of the site. If we are unable, there will be an additional fee to carry the materials to the site.
Are your sheds built-on-site?
We build the components to your specifications at our facility and assemble the shed on-site.
What other options are available?
Since we build our own sheds, your options are only limited by your imagination. Just provide us with a layout of your perfect shed and we will provide you with a custom quote.
Do you require a down payment?
A deposit is required at the time of placing your order. Final payment is due when installation is completed.
Will I have to pay sales tax?
No. We pay your sales tax.
Is there a delivery or installation charge?
Delivery within 40 miles of our Berkley, MA. facility is free. A nominal milage fee will be charged for delivery over 40 miles. Installation is included in our pricing.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards as well as bank checks, money orders and cash. Note that if there is a balance due on the day of delivery it must be paid either by bank check, money order or cash.
How long does installation take?
The majority of our sheds are completed in one day.
Do the sheds come treated or painted?

Do you offer any type of warranty?
All our sheds carry a 10-year limited warranty on defective materials and workmanship, under normal use and conditions. This warranty does not include doors and windows that have been neglected. Natural disasters, unusual conditions, acts of nature and neglect are not covered. This warranty will not apply to any East Coast Shed Inc. product or any part thereof which has been damaged by adverse weather conditions, earthquake, hail, wind, fire, water, flood, earth movement, accident, or other event, theft, vandalism, act of God, or a casualty. This warranty does not cover damages to building contents or other personal property. Repairs to the structure and foundation due to shifting or settling soil (ex. ledge rock that is underground causing cement blocks, cement sonotubes or cement pad foundations to rise and/or crack) are not covered. Movement of building from its original location or alteration to building will void warranty. All wood buildings must be painted with an exterior grade premium quality paint or stain within 30 days of installation or the warranty will be void. Building must be properly maintained as needed including, but not limited to, repainting (staining) and re-caulking. This warranty applies to original purchaser only.
