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.
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.
You never have to check for termites with a metal shed. Painting, sanding, and general upkeep tasks are also minimal.
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.
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.
Some metals can be thin and feel flimsy when compared to a wooden shed, however they are made of durable material.
Modifications like installing a window, require heavy-duty tools and work that average shed owners may not have the skills for.
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.
Metal sheds may not look as homely and as wooden sheds, but they can store and support just as well.
