It’s not necessary to be present for the entire phase of assembly.

We do ask that you’re available when the installer arrives on site to confirm the site and placement, as well as completion for the walk through inspection of your completed model.

Preparing your Build Site for our Arrival

3′ of clearance around (and overhead) the entire buildings required. 4ft. if larger than 160 sq. ft.

This will give the installer enough space to assemble the shed. Objects such as fencing, tree branches and shrubbery need to be at least 3’ from the build site.

Prior to the arrival of the installer, the build site needs to be cleared and prepared to within 6in. of level.

We do not provide excavation services. Extra charges may apply if outside of 6in. of level.

Steps to determine if shed is level
  1. Determine the four corners of the shed.
  2. Pound wooden stakes into the ground.
  3. Add a string and using a line level, determine how much excavation is needed.

If you have privacy fencing, that is not a problem as long as you have a 3ft. gate with easy access to the shed installation site.

This gives us plenty of room needed for ladders and standing the walls. Yardline sheds are assembled right in your backyard for your convenience.

After your Shed is Assembled

For a well-protected finished result, don’t forget to caulk horizontal and vertical seams and trim work.

✓ Since caulk is waterproof, it puts a water tight seal wherever you apply it. All you need is some caulk and a caulk gun.

✓ Caulk around the trim, windows, air vents, under the roof line and where the siding panels meet.


Back to Top
For the best protection, paint the siding and trim on the face and all edges, including the seams.

✓ Painting of the shed within 60 days of installation is a requirement for warranty validation.
✓ Paint all 6 sides/edges of the doors as well as the bottom edging of the siding to protect against moisture.
✓ We recommend a premium quality, 100% acrylic latex paint, available at your local hardware or paint store.paint to match shed

Additional Information:

A few more things.....
  • Aftermarket items not purchased through a Yardline Roadshow will not be installed by Yardline.
  • To add available options to your order, contact one of our Customer Service Team Members for assistance.
  • This product is hand crafted on your lot and moving the building once constructed will void your warranty and potentially compromise the structural integrity; therefore it’s not intended to be moved. We do not provide shed moving services.
