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.
