I already have a concrete slab in my backyard, which unfortunately is
not perfectly level. I am buying a Rubbermaid storage shed 66w x 36d x
78h. I want to set it on the concrete, but I don't know how to level
the concrete up. Should I use bricks or 2x4's? What would be the best
and least expensive way to do it?
How much is it out of level and in what direction(s)?
You can 'shim' with wood (pressure treated, or other resistant wood) or
stone, your choice. A 3' x 5' foot plastic shed is pretty forgiving for
level, it's more for looks than structural it's not like you're going to be
storing gold bars in it.
Or maybe you are? If you are let me know and I'll be over to help? <grin>
I agree, the shed is somewhat flexible but if it is too far off the doors
won't close nicely (I have one). I just pearch mine on top of a couple of
wooden pallets set on the bare earth.
To more directly answer the question, if you wanted to level a concrete slab
all you could do is build a form around it and pour another inch or so of
concrete (sand mix) or (less) concrete leveling compound.
A fair amount of labor but 5-6 bags of concrete won't cost very much.
