What Are the Pros and Cons of a Metal Shed?

Metals sheds are known for being a more cost-effective option than their predecessor, the wooden shed. Even though metal sheds have their own share of detractors, they are becoming a more popular shed option amongst homeowners. While the debate between metal sheds versus wooden sheds will likely never be settled, here are some pros and cons of a metal shed to help you choose the right shed for you.

Pros & Cons of Owning a Metal Shed

Metal Shed Pros

  • Long Lasting

    A metal shed does not rot, making it a great choice if you want a shed that lasts. Metal sheds can last 10+ years, depending on its proper installation.

  • Little Maintenance

    You never have to check for termites with a metal shed. Painting, sanding, and general upkeep tasks are also minimal.

  • Resists Extreme Temperatures

    Metal sheds can be placed anywhere in your yard due to their resistance to extreme temperatures. These sheds are strong in heat or cold weather and will not warp or distort their shape.

  • Great Value for Your Money

    One of the most popular pros of a metal shed is its value for your money. Metal is a cheap material making manufacturing and purchasing more cost-effective.

Metal Shed Cons

  • Feels Flimsy Compared to Others

    Some metals can be thin and feel flimsy when compared to a wooden shed, however they are made of durable material.

  • Tough to Modify

    Modifications like installing a window, require heavy-duty tools and work that average shed owners may not have the skills for.

  • Prone to Rust and Corrosion

    Rust can be a concern with metal sheds. However, certain coating and maintenance can prevent the unsight rust from developing and eating away at the metal.

  • Appearance

    Metal sheds may not look as homely and as wooden sheds, but they can store and support just as well.
