Things To Consider When Buying A Metal Shed

Of course, you could simply choose any metal shed and hope that it meets your needs, but it is a far better option to look carefully at the features to make sure it is up to scratch. Our handy buying tips will point you in the right direction.

Stability

Metal is, by its very nature, a pretty stable material. However, the thickness of the metal sheets and the general construction of the shed will determine how well the structure holds together. You want to look for something that has a very secure frame that doesn’t wobble and feels rigid.

Size

The size of the shed you need will depend on how large your garden is and how much you have to store.

Generally speaking, you could fit quite a lot into a smaller shed but getting it all back out again might be something of a nightmare. It is important to look for something that provides you with ample storage space as well as room to move around inside.

 

What’s more, it is important to find a suitable area in your garden and work with the available space. The last thing you want is for the shed to turn up and it be too big!

Noise

One of the biggest problems with a metal shed is that the doors make quite a bit of noise as you open and close them, especially sliding doors. While this shouldn’t be a deal breaker, it is something you should keep in mind when opting for a shed like this.

Is The Shed Vented?

If a shed doesn’t have air vents, this means that moisture is allowed to build up inside. While many might not think that this is a problem, it will eventually cause the shed to become damp and your belongings may become damaged.

Style And Design

Nobody wants an unsightly structure in their garden but the good news is that metal sheds come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. When you are choosing yours, you may wish to look at the surroundings and choose something that blends in. There are many metal sheds on the market that are designed to look amazing in a well manicured garden, so take the time to source these.

Roof Type

In the main, there are two types of roof for a metal shed; the apex roof and the pent roof. An apex roof is slanted and provides a great way to prevent water from pooling on the surface. However, since these can be quite high, they may not be suitable for areas where there are overhanging trees or other obstructions.

 

The pent roof is a more flat design so won’t allow rain water to fall as easily but it is a great choice if you are limited on height space. But it is also important to consider which design you like the look of best since both have their pros and cons.

FAQs

Are metal sheds any good?

Metal sheds are incredibly good if you want something that is durable and easy to maintain. Unlike wood, once they are erected, you don’t need to worry about looking after them. However, on the downside, they do not have the same aesthetic appeal as a wooden structure.

 

Do metal sheds need a base?

While you might not necessarily need a floor for your shed, you will need a stable and even base to place it. If you don’t have this, it is entirely possible to lay down some paving slabs on top of grass to provide a more even surface.

 

Do metal sheds get condensation?

Any type of shed will suffer with condensation if it is not vented. This is one of the most important factors when choosing your metal shed otherwise, you will be faced with dampness.
