What Type of Flooring is Best for My Shed?

The type of flooring best for your portable shed building, is dependent on how you will use your shed and what you intend to store inside. Stateline Builders offers three flooring options with varying levels of strength and weight capacity to meet common and even heavy-duty needs.

Before acting on any information, you should consider the appropriateness of the information provided and the nature of the relevant financial product, having regard to your objectives, financial situation and needs.

For the everyday storage shed, ⅝ Inch Square Edge Plywood is a great flooring option

The standard flooring option included in every Stateline Builders storage shed is ⅝ Inch Square Edge Plywood. This flooring option is best for customers intending to use their portable storage shed for general storage such as tools and smaller garden equipment.

It is important to note, ⅝ Inch Square Edge Plywood does not have a tongue and groove locking so for those that intend to store heavier items, a stronger flooring option is recommended.

Use ¾ Inch Tongue and Groove in your storage shed flooring when storing larger items

If you plan to store heavy items in your storage shed, then the flooring between the floor joists should also have a higher load capacity. For a stronger overall area in your shed, Stateline Builders offer ¾ Inch Tongue and Groove with interlocking grooves.

A tongue and groove flooring is known for its strength and durability, but when you require your storage shed to hold extra large equipment, such as tractors, the Double ⅝ Inch flooring should be considered.

When storing heavy materials in your storage shed, Double ⅝ Inch flooring is a better choice

When you plan to store large equipment or heavy supplies, the best flooring option in your storage shed is Double ⅝ Inch, which includes two layers of ⅝ Inch thick plywood. The Double ⅝ Inch flooring is a heavy-duty flooring expected to hold a lot of weight, such as a tractor with liquid-filled tires or a parked car.
