About Us

Who We Are

Dakota Storage Buildings manufactures quality outdoor storage structures in an environment of care and respect, for the safekeeping of people’s possessions and to help organize their lives.

Life is demanding and full of choices. We’d love to make just one aspect of your life a little easier. That’s why it’s our mission to provide products that are built well, worth every invested dollar, and to offer customer service that’s worthy of word-of-mouth recommendations.

We care about helping you organize your life, assisting you as you look for the best storage solution for your needs, and making the purchasing process as easy as possible.

Our Values

To us, our focus is bigger than just making and selling sheds.
About_Icons_Qualtiy

Quality

Each building is designed to last a lifetime. To validate that value, we offer warranties with each shed and garage we build. We invest in quality products because we know you’re investing in a quality building.

Another reason why we use quality materials is because we believe our buildings are a representation of our craftsmanship and integrity. Plus, premium materials are easier to build with, and they cut down on future maintenance.

We would never sell you a storage building that we wouldn’t buy ourselves or recommend to our grown children. We want to be as mindful about your purchase as we would about our own.

We invite you to visit a display lot near you to see our sheds first hand. Walk around buildings as well as inside of them to inspect the flooring, siding, features, and more. We want you to experience the quality of our sheds and to glean ideas for your own.

About_Icons_Service

Our goal is to constantly and consistently exceed customer expectations from website window shopping to post-delivery follow up. If you can easily navigate our website, find the shed that will solve your storage problem, and experience helpful and considerate interactions with our team, then we know we’re on the right track.

We don’t think anyone should invest in a shed or garage without adequate help. No matter what organizational or storage problem you have, our team will help you determine the best solution. For help, you can message us on Facebook, read our helpful blog full of insights into the shed buying process, shed placement ideas, tips for shed maintenance and more, or you can call our office to speak to our full-time customer service staff member that’s always ready and delighted to help.
