Guide to Plastic Sheds
Plastic sheds have become increasingly popular for storing garden tools and furniture. But why are more people choosing plastic sheds for their garden, over the more traditional-style wooden sheds?
Are plastic sheds any good and do they last?
Plastic sheds are a virtually maintenance-free storage solution for your garden. The combination of the powder coated aluminium frame and the durable plastic panels ensure the storage unit remains rust and rot resistant.
Available in a variety of sizes, plastic sheds and storage units are suitable for all sized gardens and patios.
Are plastic sheds better than wood?
With no treatment required, plastic sheds only need a wash or wipe down when needed, unlike metal and wooden sheds that require routinely maintenance to prevent rotting.
Wooden sheds are often supplied in a natural finish, or with a brown dip treatment, meaning it will need to be painted if you want a colour that will compliment your fencing or garden furniture.
From traditional brown and cream colours, to more contemporary two-tonal greys, plastic sheds are supplied in a number of ready-to-go colours and the possibilities of finding a shed that will suit your garden are endless.
What is the best plastic shed?
Brands like Palram, who specialise in plastic materials, have designed and tried and tested products for over 50 years to produce ultra-resistant structures.
With virtually unbreakable polycarbonate panels, that can withstand high winds and are 100% UV protected, their plastic sheds are designed to securely store your garden items all year round.
One thing to look out for when purchasing a plastic shed is the warranty. The Lifetime Plastic Sheds are supplied with a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty, giving you peace of mind that the shed is built to last.
Made from HDPE (high-density polyethylene), the premium plastic sheds are a heavy duty and low maintenance storage solution that will not chip, stain or fade in the sun.
Is Resin stronger than plastic?
Plastic sheds can be described in a number of different ways and it can be confusing to know which one is the right one. Resin, plastic, vinyl and HDPE are all high quality materials that, although are lighter than wooden materials, are much stronger and durable.
