4 Outdoor had the perfect outdoor shed I was looking for. They came a prepared the land with perfect drainage. On the same afternoon the shed arrived, exact color and roofing. Within one hour the shed was installed. The quality of the shed is excellent.
A custom 12 x 20 vinyl storage shed was built by 4-Outdoor for our community. It had to match the existing structures in our community that were built 20 years ago. The entire project exceeded all of our expectations at every level! The prep work was exceptional! The shed was a perfect match, right down to the red tin roof! The finish work made the structure blend right in with the existing landscape and structures! It was well worth every dollar spent and only adds to the integrity of our beautiful community! Last but not least, the office staff as well as the onsite crew were wonderful to do business with, very professional! Thank you 4-Outdoor, you ALL rock!
Shed delivered as promised in reasonable time with no problems. Very pleased.
We ordered a shed for the Walkersville High School Band Boosters and it came out exactly as asked. Delivery was easy and Brett was very thorough with ensuring the shed was level and in place.
We were in need of a shed to free up space in our garage. Saw 4-Outdoor as I was driving to dine on hard shell crabs. Got back home and checked out their products on the web. I saw many fine examples of what we were looking for. Drove our to business and spoke with Cindy, who helped me select a style. I brought back samples of our home siding and shingles. We were able to match our house with shed options. When site prep guys arrived they were able to prepare site to my request. The delivery of shed went without a hitch, placement was perfect. the quality of construction was excellent, and matched our house. We are very pleased with choosing 4-Outdoor for are shed. Thank you all.
