Garden Sheds For Sale
When looking for garden sheds for sale you have some decisions to make at the outset to ensure that you find the best storage solution for your circumstances.
The choices facing you broadly break down into the following categories-
1 ) buy some garden shed plans and build your own shed
2 ) buy a shed kit and assemble yourself with minimum fuss
3) buy a fully built shed and have it delivered to your property.
Within these broad categories you have the choice of wood garden sheds, metal sheds, plastic sheds and pvc garden sheds.
Arrow sheds are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of metal or steel sheds. You can check out elsewhere on this site more detail about metal sheds in general and Arrow sheds in particular.
The two huge benefits of metal sheds are that they are easy to assemble and are very low maintenance.
Shed kits also provide an alternative solution, generally being wooden sheds and which are prefabricated and pre drilled in the manufacturer’s factory.
There are a huge range of shed kits to choose from with different sizes and shed designs available. Click here to read more about shed kits.
Plastic sheds, also known as PVC sheds, are another popular option. Like metal sheds they offer the benefits of being low maintenance and ease of assembly. You will likely only need a ladder and screwdriver to assemble popular plastic sheds such as those supplied by Rubbermaid.
Rubbermaid supply a huge range of sheds for sale with different options such as horizontal storage sheds, vertical sheds and sheds with a sliding lid.
Rubbermaid sheds are particularly useful if you are stuck for space and/or have an unusual shaped space which is your only option for some extra storage space.
You can read more about Rubbermaid sheds elsewhere on this site and another advantage of Rubbermaid sheds for sale is the amount of accessories, flooring, shelving, ramps etc that you can also purchase as extras.
Before looking at garden sheds for sale though you will need to consider
1) How much space you have and how much storage space you need
2) Whether you need to put in a base or foundation for your garden shed.
In many situations there will be no need for a shed foundation but this will depend on what you intend storing and how long you envisage your shed being in demand for storage around your home.
Building Your Own Shed With Shed Plans
You can always build your own shed with a good set of shed plans. Shed plans offer you the possibility of different designs, roof shapes and some would argue a more aesthetically pleasing look.
It will take more time though to build your own shed and some of us are more suited to working with our hands than others.
This can result in unfinished shed building projects with a complaining spouse.
So you need to weight the benefits of ease of assembly and low maintenance with the metal and plastic sheds versus the advantages and disadvantages of wooden garden sheds when you are looking at garden sheds for sale.
