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.
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.
Vinyl outdoor storage sheds tend to be reasonably priced and maintenance free. They dont dent rust or mildew and many types of vinyl outdoor storage sheds never need to be painted or water proofed either. While all these outdoor storage sheds are wonderful options you need to consider the climate of the area you live in before choosing one for your home. Some sheds might hold up in windy climates better than others and some might hold up well under heavy snowfall accumulation.
There are some gorgeous outdoor wood shed designs these days though. Some of them rival the beauty of a guest house or outdoor office and they have all sorts of built in shelves closets and other nooks that make organizing your outdoor tools a pleasure. Wooden storage sheds usually need to be assembled but you can often buy ready-made kits which have everything you need conveniently packaged together. Alternatively you can buy outdoor storage shed building plans instead then buy the materials for your shed at a local hardware or home improvement store.
