guide to buying a shedSo you’re buying a shed. Do you know that there are many types/sizes/uses for sheds? When deciding to buy a shed, there are many things to consider.

Shed Buying Tips

There are plenty of ways to tackle buying a shed for the first time. Start by considering four things: buy when sheds are on sale, size, price/budget, use and buy sheds when they are on sale… Like right now!sheds on sale

The smart way to approach a purchase like this is to plan out potential future uses. For instance, maybe you’re a young couple,  just starting out in life. Right now you may use your shed for hobbies or gardening. But if you’re planning on having children, you may want to consider that your shed might also double as a playhouse in a few years time. Planning for long-term use might make you reconsider the size of your backyard structure.

Next up, what’s your budget? When buying something like a shed, considering the cost is important. If you can’t afford the very best, consider stretching your budget to ensure that your building is the best quality you can afford. The better quality you start with, the longer it will last and the less maintenance you’ll have to do, therefore, spending less time and money in the long run.

Now that you’ve considered these two important items, think sizing. Something small might do, but you may get more bang for your buck if you plan ahead and buy something that will fit all your needs. Also, consider your space. Don’t let your shed overshadow your backyard. Size matters, but so does space. There’s no point in having a shed for your hobbies if it masks the size of your backyard.

Materials Are Important

All of our sheds are made with LP siding…

LP siding is powerfully manufactured, moisture-resistant wood siding made from wood particles and wood fibers. In many ways, LP siding is stronger than plain wood due to the manufacturing process.

LP siding has been specially treated to prevent termite issues and natural decay. Exterior resins complete the process adding endurance and fortitude that will resist the elements of weather and natural disaster. LP siding also has outer beauty of deeply embossed cedar grain made to look like healthy natural wood. It is essentially fortified and beautified wood.

What Do Others Think? Check Online Reviews

Now that you’ve made all your determinations, if you’ve chosen a handful of companies to consider, check online reviews. It can be as easy to hitting up Yelp or going on Amazon and reading various reviews. You can also check to see if the company website has testimonials from happy customers.

Picking a Shed is a BIG Decision…

Choosing your shed is a big decision. Not only is it a choice that you will have to live with for many years to come, it’s also something you have to look at for years to come. Make sure you spend some time considering all the possibilities so that when you look in your backyard, you see a proud purchase and not a massive mistake.
