Storage Sheds Are Not All Built The Same

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Feb 13, 2010

Storage Sheds, Storage Buildings

Not all Storage Sheds are built the same.  Alan's Factory Outlet Storage Sheds are available in Wood, Vinyl, Board & Batten, Cedar and Log Siding.  Wooden Duratemp T1-11 Siding Storage Sheds are one of the Most Popular Storage Sheds due to the fact that they are very durable, the most economical Storage Sheds, low maintenance as far as they come painted and do not have to be painted again until about 10 years.  Wooden Storage Sheds come in many different sizes and styles.  Vinyl Storage Sheds are a great alternative if you want a Building that will never need to be painted.  All Vinyl Sheds have 1/2" Plywood interior with a Vinyl exterior.  All of Alan's Factory Outlet Storage Sheds are Amish Built.  Here is some information about Alan's Factory Outlet Storage Sheds to help you be an informed Customer.

Wooden Storage Sheds vs. Vinyl Storage Sheds

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Tue, Jan 5, 2010

Sheds, Storage Sheds, Wooden Storage ShedsSheds, Storage Sheds, Vinyl 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.

The 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.

 Vinyl Sheds





The 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.  

The 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.
