We’ve been in business a long time as Colonial Barns & Sheds, serving the Virginia Beach, Yorktown and Chesapeake areas for 45 years. Over that time we’ve strived to create a family business that would be known for building high quality, long-lasting storage sheds, and trusted for always being there for our customers. We’ve seen a lot of companies come and go, and a lot of changes in our industry over the years, so it’s a testament to the good people within our company that we’re here today, and thriving.

Sheds that we built 20 and even 40 years ago are still in great shape today because we use the best materials and hire the best craftsman. You don’t want a temporary solution that will look shabby in a few years. Durable materials and superior workmanship ensure that your shed stands the test of time. You want a building that will last. Top builders understand this, and so do we when it comes to sheds. Each building comes with a 10-year warranty – the best in the business and a licensed architectural engineer’s stamp of certification.

Willie and Carolyn purchased one of our first sheds in 1979. They’ve performed basic routine maintenance and their shed is still in phenomenal shape today! It’s survived literally dozens of hurricanes throughout its over four decades of life with only a few shingles blown off. We still build them like we used to – the right way!
Our team is ready to build your shed right on your property, which is backyard-friendly and more flexible than pre-assembled delivery. Construction takes about a day, depending on the size of your storage shed. Our friendly, professional in-house crew will arrive on-site first thing in the morning, work quickly and efficiently, and will not leave a mess when they’re done.
Your landscaping is protected, and you won’t have to worry about tire tracks from delivery vehicles. Also, trees and fences that can obstruct the delivery of a storage building are not an issue when we build on-site.
Building on site means we can fit your building exactly where you want it and ensure that it’s perfectly level.
Our building methods are of the highest standards and are guaranteed to meet all the building code requirements of your city or county. We have decades of experience building sheds in your area. We know how to do it right!
A storage building is only as good as its floor. We use pressure-treated runners that vary in size, based on the building dimensions. Pressure-treated floor joists placed 16″ apart are covered with 3/4″ plywood. Our floor system will easily support large garden tractors or heavy appliances and will last for decades.
