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.
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.
The type of outdoor storage boxes you choose will depend on what you need to store and what the climate is like where you live. Outdoor boxes will generally have to withstand lengthy exposure to the sun as well as other elements like rain wind and even snow. Waterproofing is a major concern as you dont want either the box or its contents to be ruined by water damage. Generally plastic and fiberglass offer the best waterproofing allowing them to withstand even the most extreme elements.
Pool equipment is another potential headache. The chemicals and equipment used for cleaning the pool can all be kept locked up in the same place as the filtration unit but it is nice to have pool toys near to the water. This is especially true if there are children. A good-looking deck box or large storage bench will hold all the pool toys and it makes tidying up very easy to do as well as providing extra seating by the pool.
