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. You want enough room for all your yard tools. If you’ve got a riding lawn mower for example, you need to have room in your shed for the rest of your tools and enough room to drive it in.

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.
