Metal Sheds in Argyle
Helping You Choose an Ideal Storage Space for Your Home
If you are looking to add some extra storage space, especially to store items that you will be using outdoors, an outdoor storage shed is a great way to do that. Once you have decided that a shed is in your future, the next step will be deciding what type of shed you want. In order to do that, you’ll need to be familiar with various shed materials.
The most common materials used for sheds are wood, resin, and metal. Wooden sheds are the most traditional type of shed and are easily customizable. However, they can be a bit pricey and can attract pests. When you think about resin sheds, what comes to mind is actually a plastic shed made of vinyl or high-density polyethylene. Resin sheds are made of a high-quality plastic material that makes them light and durable. Plus, they do not rot or rust and are resistant to UV rays. However, they are not as strong as some of the alternatives and might not be able to bear heavy materials the way alternatives like a metal shed would.
Metal sheds are made of steel or galvanized aluminum, and have many benefits, including:
When it comes to shed storage, metal is often the cheapest option. Metal sheds use fewer materials than some of the popular alternatives and they are less complicated to assemble. Furthermore, metal sheds tend to be low maintenance and require few accessories, which can save money down the line.
- Low risk of fire
Living in Texas means being concerned about wildfires and their dangers. After all, Texas is the second-most dangerous state for wildfires next to California. With metal sheds, this is far less of a concern. It is difficult to burn metal, so your metal shed would be less susceptible to the effects of a fire than a wooden or even a resin shed would be.
- Highly customizable
With metal sheds, there is a misconception that you will end up with an unattractive, rusting shack, but this is not the case with modern metal sheds. Metal sheds have come a long way, and clients now have the option to customize it to their liking. There are so many different colors and styles to choose from, so we can be sure to create a structure that complements the aesthetics of your home.
- Less risks of pests
If you are trying to avoid pests, a general rule of thumb is that they are attracted to organic materials. When you think about the places you often find pests in your home, which tends to be in the kitchen nearby fresh foods, this makes sense. Although wood is a beautiful and timeless material, it is organic, so it tends to attract pests more than a material like metal would.
- Resistant to temperature changes
When faced with the heat or cold, metal can stand the test of time. It will not be bothered by the Texas heat or the occasional winds, so other than rusting and corrosion, weathering is one factor you will not need to worry about.
There are many benefits to choosing metal as your material of choice, but it is not for everyone. Some of the cons of metal sheds include:
- Potentially less durable
Metal sheds are certainly strong, but many people find that resin or wooden sheds are stronger. This can be fixed through an anchoring kit that will help make sure the shed stays in place. They can also be prone to denting and rusting, but this can be fixed with frequent touch-ups.
- Vulnerable to rust and corrosion
As previously mentioned, metal can be vulnerable to rust and corrosion over time. However, modern metal structures are far more resistant to this. Plus, taking care of your shed and being proactive about maintenance will help prevent this issue from taking hold.
- Not easily modified
Metal sheds are easy to customize when they are being built, but they are a stubborn material. Once metal is put into its place, it does not like to budge. If you see yourself wanting to expand upon your shed in the future, or are not sure of the exact dimensions you require, you will want to carefully consider these aspects before choosing metal. However, if you are confident about the size and other qualities of your future shed, committing to metal should not be daunting at all.
