When a garage gets so overrun with clutter that there’s no room for the lawn mower, it’s time to consider investing in an outdoor shed for extra storage space. Sheds come in many different sizes and styles, so it’s worth spending the time needed to research the available options. Important factors to consider are the shed’s siding, size, accessories, and builder.
There are many choices to consider for the exterior siding of your shed. Painted Duratemp siding is a low-cost option without compromising on durability. Vinyl siding is virtually maintenance-free and made to withstand the harsh winter months here in the Northeast. Vinyl is incredibly versatile and is available in many colors. LP Lap siding and Board & Batten siding are composite sidings that give the appearance of wood without the maintenance. LP siding comes in a wide range of paint colors and Board & Batten siding is available in a choice of stain colors. Cedar and other specialty sidings are also available.
The ideal size of a shed depends on each person’s needs. A Mini-Barn or a Patriot Shed may be ideal to store garden tools, firewood, and other supplies. A larger shed like an Elite A-Frame or Elite Dutch makes the perfect workshop and should have plenty of space for a riding lawn mower, several garbage bins, and some bulky yard equipment. Homeowners looking for a work area and enough room to store their mowers, motorcycles, and other tools should consider a custom-built shed or even a two-story structure.
After deciding on a material and size, it’s time to pick out accessories. These might include ramps for lawn mowers, wheelbarrows, and more; different door styles; lofts for storage; a workbench; and other optional items, including skylights, shutters, and flower boxes.
