Outdoor Prefab Storage Sheds
Prefab storage sheds are structures that you would usually see behind houses. They are normally used as storage units. Prefab storage sheds differs from other kinds in that it comes to the home either already assembled or as a kit. It is not built from plans drawn up by the homeowner or contractor. A prefab storage shed may be made of wood or steel and many designs are available at home centers and garden stores. A homeowner should consider how much storage space he needs when choosing a prefab storage shed, as well as how much space he has for the building. Also, does he want a pre-assembled shed, or is he able to put together a kit? If he is thinking about a kit, he will probably want to look at the instructions first to make sure he has all the necessary tools to build the shed. Metal kits are probably easier to assemble, but only basic carpentry skills are required for wooden prefab storage sheds.
Size, quality and design all affect the price. A homeowner should look for quality in the structure before buying. If the prefab storage shed is steel, it should be hot dipped or galvanized steel for maximum durability. Wood sheds should be made from pressure treated wood. All prefab storage sheds should include a guarantee against damage from the elements for a certain period of time.
