Vinyl Storage

For a quick and efficient solution to smaller storage problems, there are a variety of outdoor storage buildings made from vinyl composites. You’ll find small bins with lift-up tops, larger bins with single or double doors and even small storage sheds that you can walk into. Vinyl sheds and bins have the distinct advantage of being pre-assembled and ready to go? Just slip it out of the box and install any shelves that come with it. They are impervious to insects and just about any weather conditions, and won’t dent, chip, rust or otherwise deteriorate.

Metal Sheds

One of the most common solutions for outdoor storage is the metal shed, available in kit form. There are a wide variety of sizes and styles to choose from, as well as many different colors, roof designs, door configurations, and price ranges. You’ll find metal shed kits in sizes ranging from as small as around 6 feet by 6 feet to 10 feet by 25 feet or even larger. Smaller sheds may have only a single door, and the headroom will be limited. With the larger kits, you get double doors and enough clear height inside to stand and move around comfortably. For the average-quality kit with no special options, expect to pay around $175 for a 6-foot-by-8-foot model, and around $300 for an 8-by-10 model.

Wooden Sheds

For a step up in both quality and durability, you might want to consider investing in a wooden outdoor storage solution. Wooden sheds typically come complete with a raised wooden floor, seven feet or more of interior headroom, sturdier doors and roofs covered with residential-type composition shingles? some even have windows and skylights. Wooden outdoor storage sheds are available as both kits and completely pre-assembled units. The kits may be either a box full of pre-cut parts or several pre-assembled wall, floor and roof sections that join together pretty quickly. The pre-assembled models are often mounted on raised wooden skids? usually 4-by-6 or 6-by-6 pressure-treaded lumber? and can be lifted and moved around easily with a forklift.
