If you are pushed for room in your home and are looking for a quick and easy storage solution then there is no need to look any further than a metal shed. Metal sheds offer the storage and space that you will need to store anything, whether it’s house hold items or garden equipment, and quickly. Obviously the type of metal shed that you can purchase is dependent on size, budget and what you plan to use it for.
Nowadays there are all sorts of designs, colours and sizes, far from the metal shed you might know of being an eye sore of a metal box sat at the bottom of a garden. By far wooden sheds are the most popular choice of garden shed as they mainly look more pleasing on the eye and they can come in a more diverse size range, perhaps more tailored to the space you need to fill. But the downside is that you will find yourself down the garden treating it once a year. This is one great advantage of metal sheds as they will not require this annual treatment, at most you might need to oil the door hinges after a few years. This again cuts down the amount of time you will need to install your metal shed as you won’t have to go through the rigmarole of treating the building, which usually comes at an additional cost too. Furthermore, as most metal sheds come with an anti rot guarantee and are impervious to rust, as a result they may last nearly twice as long as a wooden shed. This is mainly down to the coating that metal shed are built with, as most metal sheds are constructed from galvanised steel and then coated with either plastic or vinyl to ensure that the building lasts longer.
Another great advantage of the metal shed is that it doesn’t take too long to build. Having built a few earlier in the year we can say that on average it took around 2-3 hours maximum to erect a metal shed and a few more to build a wooden shed, with very little D.I.Y skills required. The main reason why people tend to switch to a metal shed though is for security reasons as they are much harder to break into than a wooden shed, plus with the Waltons range of metal sheds a large proportion come windowless to help prevent potential burglars looking inside. Metal sheds come in a range of sizes and shapes so you shouldn’t have trouble finding one to suit you at Waltons Metal sheds range.
