do not realize that there are many different types to choose from than years past. Today, you can purchase different brands, styles, models, sizes, materials in a

regarding options of storage sheds for sale that are being manufactured and sold within the United
Remember, storage sheds that you consider need to serve a specific need. Therefore, as you begin
researching various options, consider the items you plan to store, the climate for the geographic area where
you live, and even the architectural style of your home. By considering these
three factors, the focus would stay on storage sheds that offer the right functionality but also sheds that
would compliment your property.
The four primary “types” of storage sheds include the
1. Gable Roof – Of all shed designs, this is
the most common. Storage sheds of this type feature
two pitches of equal size that meet at a center peak.
Because of the simplistic and versatile style, these sheds offer unlimited benefits.
2. Gambrel Roof – In this case, storage sheds
have the appearance of a miniature barn with two pitches on either side of the roof. The main benefit of these sheds is that there is more usable
interior space. However, the “barn” look does not
coordinate with all home styles.
3. Lean-To Roof – These storage sheds are made
with a single slope coming down from the roof toward the front. Usually, a design such as this would be most beneficial for
people with little yard space or those needing storage in a narrow area of the property. Keep in mind that lean-to storage sheds sit flush with the home
so this design might not work for all home styles. In
addition, if you live under rules of a home association, many organizations consider this type of shed a
continuance of the home, which is prohibited.
4. Salt Box – The last design of storage sheds
is a basic gable roof but one with two roof pitches of equal size. This too is a simple design that works for many people although
interior space is restricted.
In addition to type, storage sheds are made from a variety of materials. Newer materials include
vinyl and plastic although wood and steel remain popular choices. Wood storage sheds
provide a classic aesthetic but because of the material, it is essential to purchase a shed made from quality
wood that has been treated to withstand the environment. Metal storage sheds are
a cost efficient solution that remains popular but the downside is that metal can dent and if made from low
quality metal, the shed could rust.
