Metal is one of the three most commonly-used materials for building a storage shed. A metal storage shed is typically made from steel or, sometimes, aluminum. Metal storage sheds are very durable and strong and, if built correctly, can last for many, many years with little to no maintenance required.
Why Build a Metal Storage Shed
If your location experiences extreme weather conditions often, it might be a good idea to go with a metal storage shed because they can typically stand up well against strong storms. Make sure though that you use strong foundation.
Metal storage sheds can range from small to large — some of the smaller sizes though are typically wood-based. Metal is not very expensive, easy to work with, very durable, and gets the job done. Metal is also very easy to paint and drill into, in case you want to install custom shelves inside the storage shed.
