You Need More Space

The ultimate reason you may need to upgrade your shed is simply it’s no longer big enough. When first installed, your home may have had just 2 residents, but as your family has grown so has your storage needs. If your shed is becoming cluttered, you’re running out of floor space or your sheds size (or lack of) is preventing you from using your shed for what you would like to, it’s time to consider an upgrade.

You have an old, wooden shed

Older homes may have an existing wooden shed. Over time, wood will deteriorate and start to warp, crack and rot. This can lead to an unpleasant smell and water entering your shed and damaging items inside. An old wooden shed also makes a good home for vermin and termites. Termites love wood and it can be costly to have them removed. A new metal shed will provide a space that is secure, durable and designed to withstand the weather.

When first built, the intended purpose of your shed may have meant limited ventilation and windows were required. Basic ventilation is a necessity to combat mould and mildew, however you may find your sheds new purpose requires more adequate ventilation. Windows are a great way to let natural light in, so depending on your sheds purpose more light may be needed too. Adding windows or skylights are a great way to ‘let the light in’ to your shed.
