Did you know that January is the month people get rid of their junk? Spring cleaning might be the more popular phrase but truth be told winters the time when folks buckle down and truly do some cleansing space wise. Perhaps its the promise of a New Year when new and exciting endeavors are in place when the world is your oyster and the moment is yours to seize. Thrift shops overflow with one persons trash ready to become another persons treasure and Craigslist is riddled with individuals trying to clean our their basements and garages in order to make room for new goodies set to be purchased in 2012.
And usefulness aside looks really count for a lot with outdoor storage sheds these days. Your shed should be functional large enough for your growing needs able to withstand your local climate and pretty enough for you to look at day in and day out. Storage sheds are an addition to your home. If you choose one based on functionality or cost alone you risk making your home look shabby or making yourself irritated every time you look at it.
While exposure to sunlight can bleach wood some people actually like that look so it isnt a huge issue but durability can be. Despite careful waterproofing wood remains highly porous and can still be damaged by water over time. Another option for outdoor storage is aluminum or wrought iron. Wrought iron is most often used in the garden and can be quite decorative. It is extremely durable able to endure rain snow or sun but it is also extremely heavy making it very difficult to move.
A growing trend for outdoor storage sheds is to buy sheds made of molded thick plastic materials. These are excellent low cost storage shed options that need little to no maintenance. Plastic storage sheds are waterproof and theyll often be specially treated to resist color fading from the sun. Many of these come in easy snap together kits and some of them have features such as pre-molded notches which allow you to install your own wooden shelves too.
