Metal outdoor storage sheds are another common inexpensive option. These sometimes come fully assembled but you can also buy do it yourself kits for them if youd prefer. Metal has a tendency to get dents in it over time and it rusts with prolonged exposure to various weather conditions. Because of this a similar style of storage sheds is growing in popularity but these use vinyl instead of metal.
Aluminum is not the ideal material for outdoor storage boxes as it doesnt stand up to the elements well. It is prone to rust and corrosion and can even cause corrosion in other metal objects stored inside it. There are some designs that incorporate aluminum within other less corrosive materials such as bamboo or rattan but metal objects like garden tools can still rust if stored within one of these aluminum lined boxes. The bottom line when it comes to outdoor storage is that you need to find something that you can work with and that will last for as long as possible.
They are also lightweight which makes them easy to move no matter their size as well as inexpensive. Unfortunately they also tend to fade when exposed to the sun over a length of time. Fiberglass can also become unstable when enduring rapid temperature shifts which can lead to cracking and splitting. One of the more attractive options for outdoor storage boxes is wood. Wood boxes are generally treated to withstand the elements and may cost a little more but are usually the most appealing option from a design standpoint.
One of the latter storage units is the Deck Box with Wheels. This well-built box is constructed of resin in a light taupe color with a mocha top and handles. The wheels are unobtrusive but sturdy and easy to maneuver. It holds up to 73 gallons meaning it can store yards of Christmas lights as well as many wooden candy canes or tree ornaments. And because it features a stay dry design you wont have to worry that your valuable ornaments will ruin during their lengthy storage time.
