What To Look For When Buying Sheds

What to Look for When Buying Sheds


Arthor Greenwald

If you re looking at garden or storage sheds this summer, price shouldn t necessarily be your only or main consideration. Think about the quality of the materials your shed is made of, and bear in mind that your shed will also affect the overall appearance of its surroundings. So go for a design which complements your home. A rustic design, for example, will suit a country-style house.

Having plants around your shed, or trellises going over the sides also helps your storage unit blend in to the landscape. For many people, wood is the natural choice when it comes to storage sheds. Although it can rot with exposure to time and rainwater, a wood like cedar contains resins which make it relatively rot-resistant. If you apply a preservative every two years, this will protect it, and a clear stain will also help this wood to retain its natural beauty for longer.


Vinyl is an entirely maintenance-free material for your shed, while steel tends to rust and so should probably be avoided. You ll also need to think about whether planning permission may be required, foundations, the best spot in your garden to place your shed, and decide whether you re going to call in professional help to install it, or build it yourself.

Finally, of course, you also need to think about size and be sure there s enough room to house the largest piece of equipment you plan to store, with space to spare.
