Everything You Need to Know About Colorado Storage Sheds

There’s an adage in the Bicentennial State that says if you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes. That’s because Colorado weather conditions can change in an instant. When that happens, you’ll be glad you invested in a storage shed from Cumberland Buildings.

Snow covered Colorado mountains

Boasting nearly 60 mountains that are higher than 14,000 feet, Colorado is the most elevated contiguous state in the nation. Granted statehood in 1876, this remarkable land emerges from the flat prairies of Nebraska and Kansas and slopes gradually upward toward the majestic Rocky Mountains, embracing two major river valleys along the way. Bordered by New Mexico to the south, Utah to the west and Wyoming to the north, Colorado is an exemplar of weather extremes, explain climate experts at Colorado State University.

One minute, the sun may be shining. A minute later, Colorado skies may release an unexpected flurry of snow. That’s one major reason that it’s a good idea to protect your valuables with weather-worthy Cumberland storage sheds. Cumberland Buildings sheds have a ground snow load of 60 psf (pounds per sq. ft.), and we can go up to 140 psf by special order.

You may need a building permit

Colorado storage sheds are important structures that may be considered non-principal in nature. Storage sheds are typically used to house farm equipment, recreational gear, RVs, gardening tools and other personal belongings. A zoning site plan review may be necessary, but not every city or county requires a building permit for a storage shed in Colorado. Be sure to check your local permit laws before ordering your storage shed.
