Durability & Maintenance Matters
Steel sheds are known to be robust and durable. They are built to withstand harsh weather conditions, pests, fire and more. They require very little maintenance to keep them looking good as new for years to come.
While timber sheds take the prize for aesthetic appeal, they will require more work to ensure they are long-lasting. They will require some maintenance in the form of staining, sealing, or repainting to ensure they keep their good looks and are protected from moisture, rot and insects.
On the plus side, timber structures offer more versatility in design and are naturally better at ventilation and preventing interior condensation, as seen in steel sheds.
