Wooden Storage Sheds vs. Vinyl Storage Sheds
What is the difference between Wooden Storage Sheds and Vinyl Storage Sheds.
Both the Wood and Vinyl Storage Sheds are Built to last a lifetime.
The Wooden Storage Sheds will require some maintenance in the form of
painting on average between 8 to 12 years depending if it is in direct sunlight
or if it is shaded from the sun. The Wooden Storage Sheds are standard with Duratemp T1-11 Siding which has a 25 Year warranty.
Vinyl Storage Sheds have a 1/2" Plywood Interior with a Lifetime Warranty
Vinyl Siding Exterior. Vinyl Sheds also come with a Fiberglass Door
instead of a Wooden Door.
Both the Wooden and
Vinyl Sheds have 16" On Center 2x4 Sidewalls and Roof trusses. They
both have a 40 year runner pressure treated base. The Wooden &
Vinyl Sheds are custom built with your choice of paint or vinyl
colors. Shingles are standard on all sheds.
The inside of both the Wood and Vinyl Sheds are almost identical. Below is a side by side view of a wooden and vinyl shed.
Siding on the Wooden Sheds is Stronger and holds up better against a
Weed Eater or other Blunt objects that could damage the Vinyl Siding.
The Vinyl Siding does offer a 2nd level of protection as far as having
plywood on the inside. Nothing major but possibly a little better for
heating and cooling because every layer counts for something.
last thing to consider is price. The Vinyl will cost more initially,
however every time you don't have to paint the building you get some of the cost
savings back. More importantly it saves you time, thats something most
people don't have enough of.
So both are good chooses depending on your preferences.
