Pros and Cons

There are pros and cons to every type of shed so it’s important to way up what you need in order to find the right one for your garden. Here you will find the advantages and disadvantages of metal, plastic and wooden garden sheds.

 

Metal Shed Pros and Cons

Metal sheds are renowned for being durable and strong, which is ideal if you want a secure shed to store your valuable tools. They’re also hardwearing against the elements and won’t suffer from rot, offering long-lasting garden storage all year round.

 

In previous years, metal sheds were regarded as less attractive than their wooden counterparts, but nowadays, most metal sheds are designed to complement a garden and some even have a woodgrain exterior. Metal saids do have their flaws, though. They are harder to modify that wooden sheds and cheaper sheds can suffer from rust or corrosion.

 

Wooden Shed Pros and Cons

Arguably the most popular of the garden sheds, wooden sheds come in modern or traditional designs to suit most gardens and can be easily modified to add shelving or more storage. Wooden sheds are generally much easier to work with and assemble. Depending on how thick the timber, you can opt for domestic or heavy duty use.

 

The cons to wooden sheds are that they require regular treatment at least once every couple of years which can be costly. If not treated, wooden sheds can become susceptible to the elements so it’s important to keep them maintained. You can also opt for pressure treated options on some sheds, which means they don’t require treatment at home.

 

Plastic Shed Pros and Cons

Plastic sheds are the most affordable storage option and offer durability and weather resistance. Higher-end plastic sheds can cost more are longer-lasting and require no maintenance. They also avoid issues such as rot or rust and are easy to assemble.

 

The main disadvantage to a plastic shed over wooden and metal sheds is that they are not as secure and can be affected by extreme temperatures. Customising plastic sheds can also be more tricky that with the other types.
