Storage Sheds: A Buyer’s Guide

It happens to all- when no matter how big your house is, there’s never enough room for all our stuff! Luckily, if you’re a bit unsure where to put your gardening tools, sporting equipment, lawnmowers, and other things, backyard storage sheds are now available for you to try!

Storage sheds come in different sizes and shapes, and they have become a popular extension where outdoor stuff can be placed and secured. If you are planning to buy one for yourself, or want to build DIY outdoor storage, here are the things that you need to know:

Do I require a grant to introduce a capacity shed? 

Before starting with your storage shed project, it pays off to talk to your local officials about the size, height, and site restrictions. Take time to check zoning regulations to prevent issues on your outdoor shed installation.

Can my storage shed be placed right next to my house?

Choosing the best location for your storage sheds can be a bit tricky. While you can install small storage next to your home, you may want to place a larger unit a bit further away from it. Maintain about 2-feet clearance around the outdoor storage shed.  Some of the factors that you need to consider when finding the best location for your outdoor storage are the land slopes, the kind of soil, and the presence of trees and fencing.

How much does the storage shed cost?

 The cost of building a shed in the US ranges from $1,500 to $4000, depending on the materials you want to use and the extra features you want to include. Some homeowners like to have windows, porches, shelving, and other decorative touches included in the storage sheds. Additionally, there will be additional charges if you hire a professional installer. If you want a wise investment, we recommend using higher-quality materials because they’re durable and can last long.

The usual materials used to build outdoor storage sheds are wood, plastic resin, vinyl, and metal. Most outdoor sheds can be categorized as vertical sheds, horizontal sheds, corner sheds, lean-to sheds attached to the house, and barn-style sheds with two-level storage.

What’s the size of storage sheds should I buy?

The size of the storage sheds depends on how you will use them. It would help determine how you’ll be using it or what the stuff you want to be placed inside is.
