Reasons to Consider Vinyl Storage Sheds

Posted on: 27 June 2019

Storage space is a common problem for many people. One of the easiest ways to overcome a lack of storage is with storage sheds. There are several types of storage sheds to choose from; including wood and metal, but vinyl is the most popular for a number of reasons. Most storage sheds, including Duramax storage sheds, are available in kits. The kits are pre-cut and labeled to make assembly easy, even for those without any construction skills. All that's required for assembly is a few common hand tools and an extra set of hands.

If you're short on storage space, here are a few reasons to consider investing in a vinyl storage shed.

Low Maintenance

Metal and wood sheds require more maintenance, such as painting or sealing every few years. Once Duramax vinyl storage sheds are installed, other than the occasional power washing, there is no ongoing maintenance required. Unlike wood sheds that are prone to termites and other insects or metal that is prone to rust, vinyl sheds are resistant to pests, insects, and rust.

Durable and Strong

Vinyl storage sheds are strong and durable as well as waterproof. Vinyl sheds generally do not chip, dent or split, so they look like new much longer than wood or metal shed. They are ideal for protecting all types of items and keeping them dry in all types of weather and since they are water resistant you won't have to worry about mold and mildew.

Easy Installation

One of the best benefits of vinyl storage sheds is that the installation is generally quick and easy. Depending on your skills with hand tools, vinyl storage sheds can usually be built in a weekend or less. If you choose to buy the storage shed kit instead of one that is pre-assembled, all of the pieces are clearly marked and come with easy to follow instructions.

One important issue to keep in mind when installing a vinyl storage shed is that they must be placed on a flat surface in order to ensure they are stable and windproof. When buying vinyl storage sheds, you usually have the option to purchase a separate base, which is highly recommended. The base acts as a floor to the shed and helps to "anchor" it in place. There are other features you have the option of getting, such as windows, shelves or skylights. These accessories are typically sold separately, but are a nice addition, especially if you intend to use the storage shed for other purposes, such as a small office or play area for the kids.
