We Use These Trusted Brands Because Quality Materials Matter

At Dakota Storage Buildings we only use premium materials—and here are three reasons why.

  1. We believe our buildings are a representation of our integrity, so we only use the best materials. If your building looks bad or isn't made properly, we look bad, and you feel disappointed. No one wins. Our goal is to satisfy our customers and showcase the products that make us so proud.

  2. Using great materials makes our job easier. Premium materials are easier to build with and increase our productivity. This increased productivity allows us to sell you a much higher quality building for a cost similar to our competitors.

  3. High-quality materials increase the lifespan of a storage building and cut down on the maintenance needed to keep each shed and garage in top condition.

It's for these reasons and more that we choose trusted manufacturers—everyone benefits when high-quality materials are used. Short cuts never win.

Here are a few of the brands that we know and trust.


We use Sherwin-Williams paint exclusively for our Painted and Lap buildings as well as for the trim packages we offer. Their high-quality paint provides superior coverage and holds up to wear and tear, harsh weather, and regular cleaning.

Over the last 150 years, Sherwin-Williams products have beautified and protected many of the world's most iconic structures, such as The White House (D.C.), Freedom Tower (New York), and The Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco). It's clear that Sherwin-Williams is the choice for many professionals—including us.

Our garages come with Clopay's Premium Series garage doors because they're built to be energy efficient, functional, and beautiful. These doors boast 1 ⅜” Intellicore insulation that improves strength, security, and operation. These garage doors operate smoothly and quietly and offer safety features to prevent accidental injuries. They also utilize weathertight tongue and groove section joints to withstand the elements.

Louisiana Pacific (LP)

We've been using LP Building Products in the creation of our sheds for a long time. Here are three specific LP products that we use.

  • LP ProStruct® Flooring with SmartFinish is standard on all of our storage buildings because it maximizes the structural longevity. This premium flooring has no knots or voids, which creates a sleek and beautiful appearance and increases the overall quality due to its durable overlay. Significant increases in durability are due to Treated Wood Strand Technology that is made to resist pests, decay, warping, splitting, and cracking.

  • LP SmartSide Siding is the standard on all of our Painted storage buildings.

  • LP SmartSide Trim and Lap Siding is standard on our Lap storage buildings.

  • We're happy to offer LP SmartSide Panel with Smart Finish as an add-on to our Painted sheds and garages. If you want the inside of your shed to look just as nice as the outside, this is a great option. It's a durable overlay that gives interior walls a clean appearance. Because these panels are treated with SmartGuard® treatment, they're also protected from rot and termites.

It can be a challenge to organize the inside of a shed or garage. We know that. That's why we offer the UniCaddy's VersaCaddy™ 16 Organizer Kit as an add-on when purchasing any of our storage buildings. With this kit, you can place each piece where it will best fit your needs. The kit is a complete and versatile storage system specifically designed to utilize the vertical space between 16" on center studs—maximizing the storage space inside sheds and garages. Each component is made of durable materials that can withstand heat, cold, and corrosion.
