Do you have prices for your buildings on your website?
Yes, all of our standard buildings are priced. Contact us for special order buildings.
Are all of your buildings available for Rent-to-Own?
All of the standard buildings are available for rent-to-own. Special orders may require a cash purchase. If the customer intends to alter
the building with construction or painting it will need to be a cash purchase.
Do I need good credit?
At Derksen, we offer our customers the option to buy or rent to own with NO CREDIT CHECK!
How do I make my Rent To Own payments?
If you choose our Rent to Own option, all payments should be made to your assigned rental company in accordance with your contract / Rent to Own agreement. If you have misplaced this information, call 888-623-9829.
How much will my initial payment be?
Downpayments may vary based on the size of the building. In most cases, buildings wider than 12 ft. will require addtional downpayment
fees due to wide load hauling restrictions and escort service requirements.
When will I get my new building?
A building purchased from current inventory will usually take 1 to 3 weeks to deliver. If the building purchased has to be manufactured it
will usually take 2 to 4 weeks. Weather conditions and the demand of the season can alter delivery times. We will work with you in all
cases. Just tell us when you need a building and we will see what we can do.
Is delivery included in the price?
When you buy or rent to own a building from Derksen, we will deliver your building for FREE within 50 miles of Topeka or Lawrence. Initial set up of building is also included. Check with us, in certain instances we can arrange free delivery outside of this area. Last year we sold a shed going to Arkansas and were able to provide free delivery.
Does the building need to sit on gravel or concrete?
The only requirement is a level location. Our buildings are designed to rest directly on their skids. In order to level the building we use
treated wood blocks. If you would like to have your building on concrete blocks, we only require that you provide the blocks.
What if my new building will not fit through my gate or around
Deksen requires that your site be ready for delivery, and is not responsible for making any alterations to fences or other barriers. If you have questions about your site, contact us. We also offer an onsite building program.
How much space should be allowed to deliver a building?
A vertical space of 14′, measured from the ground to the top of the building when it is on the trailer, is required. Be sure to take any tree
branches and utility wires into account. The driver will still need a minimum of 2′ of space to maneuver the truck. That is, a building 12′
wide will require a 14 foot wide space. Please take tight turns into account when considering a location.
In what sizes are your buildings available?
We can build almost any size building we have standard plans for buildings between 8×12 and 16×40. We can also build structures in
many other sizes such as 30’x30′. Contact me for details and pricing.
Why is my 12′ wide building only about 11’6″ wall to wall?
We are limited by hauling regulations as to how wide a building we can deliver. The current regulation is 12′. For this reason, 12- wide
buildings are measured from eave to eave. Our 8′ and 10′ wide buildings are measured from wall to wall.
How can I re-stain my treated building?
Your Derksen building treated siding can be stained or touched up with Pittsburg Paints HONEY GOLD stain, available at www.shedsupply.com
Do I need to have permits or other paperwork?
You are responsible for contacting your local city and county agencies in regard to zoning, permits, setbacks, and covenants. Also, it is recommended that you contact your Home Owners Association (if applicable) to determine what neighborhood rules and regulations may be apply.
