Shed Looks Nice and is So Well Built!
We had a 12′ X 20′ shed built by Affordable Sheds and couldn’t be more pleased with the result. Doug worked with us throughout the process and he is a total professional! We had some scheduling issues, totally because of torrential rainy weather, but Doug quickly rescheduled us for a few days later. Finally the sun came out! Bruce actually built the shed. And, this is one hard working guy! Over a two-day period he roughed out, put siding up, painted, and even did the roofing … all by himself. When he finished the area surrounding the shed was spotless: no butt ends thrown in the woods, no nails or trash left behind, etc. Great work ethic! Overall, we’re really glad we paid a bit more than we had initially planned. This shed looks so nice and is so well-built that we’re sure to get many, many years out of it! – Joe S., Fredericksburg, VA
Hire these guys and you won’t be disappointed!
I have only good things to say about this company. Doug is a professional guy who knows his business and he’s a nice, like-able guy too! The installation guys were on time and built our shed with expertise and efficiency. We hired another company to level and gravel the shed site but their inefficiency caused a 1/2 day delay on the day of our shed installation. Doug and his crew were amazingly cooperative and helpful and even dealt with the other company by telling them where additional grading was needed. Doug ordered the exact same siding and trim work as our house so it matches perfectly and is a cute addition to our landscaping. Hire these guys and you won’t be disappointed! – Anita D., Stafford, VA
The process couldn’t have been more smooth
I had an old shed removed and an 8×6 ranch-style shed built by Affordable Sheds and am very pleased with the result, process, and the service. Doug Lewis responded promptly (same day) to my email request for a quote and scheduled a time for a site visit. He walked me through all of the options for the shed and took the time to answer my questions. He also didn’t try to push unnecessary frills on me. (In fact, he told me when he thought certain add-ons were not necessary.) Doug then promptly provided a written quote, which compared favorably to another I had gotten. Once I booked with Affordable Sheds, Doug stayed in constant email communication throughout. The carpenters, Paul and his son, arrived promptly — early, even — on installation day. They were polite and efficient and got both removal of the old shed and installation of the new shed done in less than two days. I’m happy with the end product. And as I said, the process couldn’t have been more smooth. – Alice H., Falls Church, VA
Their prices are fair, the service is excellent.
Their prices are fair, the service is excellent. They communicate with you at every step of the planning and construction phases. The sheds are sturdy and well built. It was a painless process and we couldn’t be happier with our new shed. – Patrick W., Alexandria, VA
Prompt, Exact, Superb, Great Craftsmanship, Very Happy!
Called Doug and set up an onsite review of the shed at my house. He evaluated the area where the shed was going to go and explained the build process. He discussed the various shed options and was also able to match the vinyl siding and roof shingle color of my house perfectly. On the day of construction the two workers showed up promptly and were very professional. They were able to finish the shed within a single day. The construction is superb and very exact, great craftsmanship. Very happy with the shed and would use them again. – Travis R., Midlothian, VA
Great Craftsmanship and Attention to Details
I needed a replacement for my 23-year-old Heartland shed. Based on Angie’s List reviews, I went to Affordable Sheds to determine if they had what I wanted. The people at their site were very informative without being pushy. When Doug Lewis, the owner, came to my house to make final arrangements, he also was very helpful with suggestions, without pressuring to up-sell his products. I decided to go with the premier package, vinyl siding, and a vinyl privacy lattice. I have a sloping yard, which meant I also needed leveling blocks and a long ramp. In fact, I contracted for a 6′ ramp, but after putting up the shed, Bruce Elmore (the installer) recommended to Doug that for safety purposes (more gentle slope), it needed 8′, which they installed at no additional cost. The price also included the tear-down and removal of the old shed, which was not an easy feat. Doug had allowed a week for the entire job, but Bruce completed it in 3 days. I had the opportunity to observe him at work, and he showed great craftsmanship and attention to detail. He left the yard in pristine condition. All the people I dealt with at Affordable Sheds were courteous and professional. For the price, I believe I received a great quality product. – Frances W., Annandale, VA
We are Thrilled with our Shed!
All of the five-star reviews of Affordable Sheds are right on target. Doug is a pleasure to work with, taking the time to help us decide what we wanted to build and checking in with us often to update us on build date. His carpenter Paul does terrific, careful work and is an all-around nice guy. We are thrilled with the shed and would definitely recommend this company to anyone interested in building a custom shed. Thank you! – Andrea C., Falls Church, VA
Matched the House Perfectly!
They were excellent. They made the shed to match the house perfectly. The siding, trim and roofing all look the same. The yard was difficult to work with because it is hilly. We found the only place we could have put the shed and they installed it perfectly level. It looks great in the yard and they did a really good job. – Sandi B., King George, VA
Job Well Done
Doug Lewis and his team were a pleasure to work with; professional, reliable, honest, punctual, efficient, skilled — and any other positive adjective one can think of to describe a great experience. We picked Affordable Sheds out of a line up of five (5) competitors. Why: On-site construction (important for our quality, control), competitive pricing (just as good if not better than dealers of “manufactured” sheds, in our view), solid 2×4 construction (unlike most “manufactured” sheds), 12” on-center pressure treated floor joists, and 16” on-center wall studs (far superior to most “manufactured” sheds we found on the market), strong ¾” pressure treated flooring (again, superior to most “manufactured” sheds we found), maintenance-free PVC exterior trim, and options for height (we chose 86″). Most important ─ outstanding service! Doug and his team found siding, shingles, and paint to perfectly match our house. We did our own site preparation (clearing, pier installation (nine at 24″ deep in concrete)), and we sincerely appreciated Affordable Sheds’ lead carpenter’s site survey, written instructions, and on-site “coaching” during the process. Then, on-site builder Paul’s efficient carpentry, attention to detail, commitment to quality, and job site cleanliness topped off this pleasant experience. As follow-up, Doug Lewis came to the house within two days of construction to touch up paint and to ensure our 100% satisfaction. We visited many dealers in search of the perfect shed before deciding on Affordable Sheds. Affordable Sheds’ price, service, quality materials, on-site construction, and follow-up made our choice easy. We are most pleased. Job well done! – Doug M., Woodbridge, VA
They came out during a snow storm to complete majority of the job, which they did not have to do. They came a long distance and I really appreciated that. They provided excellent and service and I recommend them to others. Douglas is very friendly and professional. He first came to measure and checked with the city to ensure the shed would conform. It took about three weeks because we had to schedule a date that was convenient for both of us. They sent an assembly guy who installed it onsite. His employee did most of the work that day and came back to do the finishing touches. I thought the shed was very affordable and it was a great experience! I asked for certain things for the shed and everything was made exactly as I asked. They painted the shed to match the house and made sure in the beginning to take down the paint number I wanted. I would definitely recommend hiring this company if you are looking for a wonderful experience and quality work. – Doris S., Alexandria, VA
Very pleased with our experience with Affordable Sheds in the construction of our 16′ x 10′ shed. The actual construction was preceded by two site visits: first, a very thorough discussion of our requirements, after which the builders double-checked our city’s regulations to ensure our plans would meet code. The carpenter attended the second visit and reviewed in detail the specifications we’d developed, and also provided many good suggestions which we chose to incorporate into the final design. The builders ensured the shed’s siding and roofing materials matched the house. Everything was done on schedule: all appointments made were kept and they started and completed the project on time. We were extremely satisfied with the company’s thoughtful and thorough process, and would definitely use them again in the future. – Jennifer W., Alexandria, VA
They were very good. They came on a timely manner. They did a good job and a good price. It’s a good quality construction. – Regan C., Alexandria, VA
Pleasure to Work With…
Douglas was a pleasure to work with and his proposal was thorough and a competitive price. He took the time to address all our questions related to our needs, including height restrictions on sheds imposed by Fairfax County. Paul the carpenter was very experienced, efficient and professional. Our new shed is exactly what we requested. We would highly recommend Affordable Sheds. – Caroline B., Falls Church, VA
He provided the best service, the price was very reasonable, and the outcome was very satisfactory. It was a very good experience to work with him. – Yong C., Vienna, VA
