Vail Valley BizWatch: Eagle Sheds
Business name: Eagle ShedsLocation: Eagle, Colorado Date opened: April 1Owner: Brady & Kathy CaltonContact info: 970-904-1930What goods or services do you provide? We build high quality sheds that will stand up to the extreme weather conditions that we experience in the high country. They come in a variety of sizes such as: 6×6, 8×8, 8×10 and 8×12. Other customized sizes are available by special order. We are working with many of the local design review boards and home owners associations so that the sheds are pleasantly appealing to the neighborhoods and this will allow people to get them approved and installed quickly. Each shed is assembled in your yard, allowing for yards with tight access to be able to have a shed as well. You can place the sheds on a concrete pad, or our special metal floor system that can be placed on your grass – either way they will hold up to the mountain extremes that we experience here. These sheds can also be moved. If you would like to see our sheds there is a model in the front of Alpine Lumber on Chambers Avenue in Eagle. What’s new or exciting at your place?The product and quality that we offer on our sheds is exciting for us. It gives us the ability to receive an order, and build and install a shed in your yard within one week’s time. No need to wait for an out-of-town company to decide when they want to deliver or to pay a high price delivery fee.What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? We will build our sheds out of high quality materials that will allow your shed to last for many years. We us 2×6 boards, as our competitors use 2×3 or 2×4 boards which will not stand up to our mountain weather. Our floor design system will allow you to place them right in your yard or you may pour a concrete pad as well. We can also offer a variety of options for these sheds so that you can design them the way that you would like them to look and the way that you like them to be used. What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you?We look forward to helping people solve their storage issues and allow for their yards to look clean and tidy. We are excited about giving people a product that will be customized to their needs, looks and quality, and delivered quickly as well.
