If you are spending money installing a garden shed then it stands to reason you are going to want to make sure you get the best value for money possible. In the past garden sheds have really only been used to store the odd spade and some old plant pots but actually with the right shed you can get so much more usage out of it. Of course what you can use your shed for will depend very much on the size of the shed and how it has been set up, but it nice to know that you have options.

Proper Storage

When you put your shed together make sure you think of it in a practical way if you want to look at storage. If you are using it as storage then you’ll want to get the most out of it. Make sure you look at shelving, boxes and other storage solutions which will help to make sure you can store as much as possible in the space you are given.

Extra Room

If you have a shed that is clean and tidy then it can be used as extra room when you are socialising. Many sheds open out nice and wide which means that they’re perfect as a solution to extra seating if you are holding a garden party. You can even just use it to put the food and drink in so that it is cool and out of the way of direct sunlight.

Business

If you have any sort of craft business then you can look at making your shed into your home office/workshop. Space away from the house is great and it means you’ll be able to keep everything together in one place. Of course this is just a small look at shed use and the options available. Generally speaking you can use your shed for more or less anything you want as long as it is set up and designed properly.

Whatever you decide to use your shed for you’ll want it to be as secure as possible. There are people out there that see sheds as easy targets but that is generally because in the past people haven’t taken steps to make sure that their sheds are safe and secure. Thankfully there are steps you can take to secure your shed and make sure that whatever is inside is as safe and sound as possible.

Shed Security

Generally speaking shed security doesn’t need to be complicated or much different to the security of your home or car for example. It is a good idea to try and keep tempting items out of site because you don’t want to encourage people to break in – curtains on a shed window are a good idea for example. Of course locks and security are also a good idea. You need at least one if not two bolts and padlocks on different parts of the door. Make sure that these are installed correctly and are as secure as possible. Of course your shed also needs to be solid otherwise they’ll just break in where they can. Always make sure you lock any doors and windows before you leave your shed unattended.

Garden Security

Keeping your shed safe and sound is about more than the shed itself. You really need to make sure that your garden is secure too – to stop people coming in. It is well worth investing in a set of motion-sensor security lights. The fact that your garden lights up when people step inside is usually enough to put people off of even entering. As much as your shed door needs to be secure so does your garden gate. Invest in decent locks and security for your gate and make sure that the rest of your fencing is as secure as possible too!

When you invest in a shed you’re hopefully buying something that is going to give you many years use. Shopping for a shed might not be the cheapest item you have ever bought, but when you look at how long it can last you, it can give you great value for money. Of course if you want your shed to least then you’re going to need to look after it, but what are the best ways to do that?

Buy The Right Type of Shed

Whatever type of shed you are looking at, try to buy one that has already been treated. You want treated wood sheds and metal sheds that have been treated with resin. Both of these are essential for helping to ensure that the shed you buy stays in tip top condition for as long as possible.

Regular Treatments

As well as buying sheds that have already been treated you need to make sure you keep this up. It is a good idea to get into the habit of retreating your shed every 12 months – spring time works best. Use spring as an excuse to give it a tidy up and a dust down after the cold winter and give it a fresh coat of whatever treatment it is needed.

Spot Checks

Don’t just assume that checking your shed once a year is enough. You should be looking after your shed all year round and keeping an eye out for any problems that are occurring. For example has your metal shed starting to let in condensation or your wood shed started to leak?

Replace Problems When They Occur

If you do notice any of these problems then it is essential that you look at fixing then straight away. Usually small problems are easy and inexpensive to fix but if you leave them too long then they could get worse and then you’ll be left with a much more severe problem on your hands.

Wood Vs Metal Sheds

If you’re looking to invest in a new shed then it stands to reason you are going to want it to be the right type for your needs. You’ll notice when you shop for new shed is that there are many different types for you to choose from. There isn’t necessarily a type that is better than the other, you just need to make sure you choose the type that is best suited to what you need.

One of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make is what you want your shed to be made out of. The most popular choices are wood and metal – but what’s best?

Wood Sheds

If you want a shed that looks natural then a wood shed could be the choice for you. These are generally made from natural timbers which make them look natural and great. You’ll need to make sure that you buy wood that has been treated and make sure it is retreated every year in order to make sure that it is well looked after and lasts a long time. The great thing about wood sheds is that the internal temperature is well regulated so you don’t have to worry about this too much.

Metal Sheds

Another choice is to go for a metal shed, which is generally a shed that is considered more heavy duty than a wood shed. Of course as with wood sheds you’ll be able to get metal sheds with their own features and benefits so you need to shop around and find the one that suits you. If you do go for a metal shed then you should go for a resin coated metal to ensure that it doesn’t rust prematurely. You also need to keep an eye out for condensation inside the shed and deal with this quickly if it does occur.
