Our Low-Maintenance Shed Options
Let’s start off with some good news: a well-built shed will require next to no maintenance over the course of owning it. Both our wooden sheds and vinyl options certainly qualify as low-maintenance sheds, but there are some key differences you need to keep in mind to help you decide:
- Wooden Sheds — Our more budget-friendly option, wooden sheds are slightly more affordable than their vinyl counterparts but still provide great weathertight storage. A wooden shed may require repainted once every ten or fifteen years in order to maintain its looks and prevent rot or mold. However, we consider one big cleaning job every decade or more still low maintenance. The architectural shingle roofs on these sheds are very similar to those found on most homes and contribute to the ease of owning this low-maintenance shed.
- Vinyl Sheds — Built of the same vinyl siding as most suburban homes, this premier type of shed provides maximum ease of ownership along with a wide range of shed styles. Vinyl siding will never need to be painted, yet is completely impervious to any kind of rot or mold that could damage the integrity of the shed. You can count on a vinyl shed to never require any type of major maintenance over its 25+ year lifespan.
Shed Maintenance Tips for Our Quality Sheds
While we always say that our sheds are practically maintenance free, there are a few small things you can do to keep them looking and performing their best. These are the simple shed maintenance tips we recommend for our wooden and vinyl sheds.
Other than the full re-painting that a wooden shed will need once in a lifetime, the maintenance needs aren’t particularly demanding. The most shed maintenance for a wooden shed is to keep an eye out for exposed patches of wood where the paint was rubbed away. When you find any of these areas, you’ll want to touch it up to keep the protect paint layer strong.
On the other hand, a vinyl shed is even easier to keep looking brand new. Simply wash the exterior with dish soap and a garden hose to keep the siding looking clear and bright. Even if you skip washing your vinyl shed, it won’t hurt the longevity of it whatsoever! That’s why vinyl is our recommendation for a truly maintenance-free shed.
