Plastic storage sheds are a must-have for anyone that has a yard. Storage sheds in general help you to keep your tools and other “yard stuff” organized, out of the weather, and out of the yard. Bags of compost or fertilizer store well in a weather-proof shed, and if you lock your outdoor storage shed these potentially harmful bags can be stored out of reach of children, pets, or vandals.
Lifetime plastic garden sheds have some distinct benefits over traditional stick-framed sheds, and don’t even get me started about flimsy metal sheds. Wood sheds need to be maintained to keep them safe from the elements. Walls and doors need to be scraped and painted somewhat frequently to keep the exterior weather-tight, shingles need to be replaced every so often. Insects and rodents love wood, it’s a natural element, they can eat, gnaw through, nest in… and since you don’t live in your shed you’re less likely to see early problem signs – until the damage has been done.
Lifetime plastic sheds don’t need to be painted, they don’t have singles, generally speaking they don’t get eaten by bugs and rodents, and if your city’s building code is like mine you might not need a building permit or inspections to put up a plastic shed like you do with a wood shed. (Your land-use and building codes may differ, so make sure you check for yourself!)
