Lifetime Plastic Sheds: 5 Best Heavy Duty Plastic Sheds

When it comes to investing in plastic sheds, maintenance is a key factor. And with popular choices including wood and metal, plastic sheds really excel in this area – as they’re virtually maintenance-free!

The development of modern plastics has increased the durability of plastic sheds and over the past few years, this type of shed has become a fantastic budget-friendly contender.

So if you’re planning on investing in one soon, you’re in the right place! In this post, we’ll explore the best plastic shed range that Garden Buildings Direct has to offer.

Why Plastic Sheds?

One of the main reasons why many people opt for plastic sheds is that they’re practically maintenance-free. Moreover, there are no dangers of corrosion, rot or warping.

This guarantees the shed remains in pristine condition for a long time. All it needs is occasional washing with warm soapy water or slightly jetting it with a water pressure cleaner. Simple as that.

Like treated wooden sheds, most plastic sheds are also treated to resist the harsh UV rays. What’s more, they’re reinforced with steel frameworks so they can hold up against the elements.

The HDPE and PVC vinyl plastic used in today’s shed has been developed. They’re durable enough within the extremes of the UK’s weather. In short, plastic sheds are watertight, weatherproof and UV resistant.

As for the aesthetics, plastic storage usually features subtle but decidedly contemporary designs that fit in with any garden layout. Other features include plastic siding, pitched roofs and integrated padlocks eyelets for security. Below, we’ll go through some of the best plastic sheds on offer from our new Lifetime range.
