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.
With maximum usable interior space Q-models are best suited for grain and livestock storage as backyard workshops for boat and automobile storage as airplane hangars and more. S-models are perfect for warehouses distribution centers storage sheds and more. For a backyard garage or workshop a single or multiple car garage equipment shelter and more P-model is the right choice.
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.
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.
