To those who value lightweight but sturdy when it comes to garden sheds, metal is a top-tier material. Cheaper than wood, metal sheds are among the popular choices for storage solutions.
And these types of sheds are fantastic all-rounder outbuildings. Known for its long-term and enduring qualities galvanised metal is perfect for enduring the elements.
So if you’re planning on investing in one soon, you’re in the right place! In this post, we’ll explore the best Lotus metal shed range that Garden Buildings Direct has to offer.
Why Metal Sheds?
Like wooden sheds, metal sheds have developed a reputation in British gardens. At great value for the price, the coating and build quality of metal sheds are better than ever!
This shed type is increasing in popularity, all thanks to its incredible advantages. For one, it’ll not rot or be affected by heat, excess sunlight or cold temperatures. This makes it an excellent choice when fully exposed to the elements in your backyard.
Furthermore, our Lotus metal sheds have undergone several processes with hot-dipping and galvanising. Like plastic sheds, little maintenance is required.
These processes also make Lotus sheds resistant to rust and corrosion. Unlike wood, metal sheds won’t distort or warp under different conditions. They are also reinforced with strong frames and rated against strong winds.
Even a high-quality one is easy to install and requires fewer building materials. Thus, metal sheds tend to cost less than wooden and even some plastic sheds. And if you have a budget constraint for the same price as a wooden shed, you may be able to get a larger metal shed.
