Questions to Ask About Storage Sheds
If you do not have the capacity to keep all of your possessions inside your house, you might want to think about constructing or buying a storage shed.
Is a shed a good storage solution for every kind of homeowner or renter?
Storage sheds are best for people who live in the suburbs or, even better, in the country. On the other hand, urban residents may find that they do not have the means or even the permission to set up outdoor containers. In particular, people who live in apartment buildings may not be authorized to do so. Additionally, urban areas can also pose a greater threat of thefts, an issue also considered below.
Are locks enough to provide security for my storage shed?
Your plans to secure storage units should depend both on the particular area where they are located and the inventory they contain. Metal locks might not be sufficient to secure outdoor containers in high-risk areas.
Do I have to set up a special storage shed, or are there preexisting components of my house which I can use?
Rather than building a shed specifically for storage purposes, people may choose to use other structures, such as could barns or garages. Urban and suburban residents might more probably have the latter option of a garage, while people living in rural areas might alternately have access to barns.
What other options do I have besides setting up storage sheds?
If the security issues described above, or any other practical matter, render storage sheds impractical, you could store some of your possessions away from your home altogether. For one, you could keep some of your possessions in an office. You could also rent out space in a storage facility.
If you're looking for quality storage sheds, we can help. Ask about the different storage options available.
STORAGE-SHEDS IN/NEAR PORTLAND
Companies that sell sheds also generally sell storage containers and garages. In some cases, the shed or garage could be built on site.
It is also common for sheds to be sold in kit form, and some DIY enthusiasts may attempt to build a structure. Plans are often available on the internet. Large sheds are often treated like other buildings. Some sheds are portable, and can easily be moved. These generally take the form of a large metal or vinyl box.
Although sheds are traditionally made of wood, other materials are now more commonly used, due to climate and other issues with outdoor buildings. Carports generally have a wooden frame and a metal or plastic roof. Salesmen need to advise customers on the best material, size and style. This depends on climate and both available and needed space. Wooden barn style sheds are popular in higher end development and are generally fixed. However, these barns are very expensive. Smaller units are more common. Sheds that are used as a storage facility are sold in bulk.
The demand for custom sheds is strong from customers and developers, who may order sheds to match their houses.
Companies also sell various accessories. Locks and padlocks are essential. So are tool bins, shelves and cabinets. Specialist equipment for wine storage is a niche, but a worthy one. Garages are used to store cars and often have storage space for automotive tools. Larger sheds may be used to store unused furniture, or outdoor furniture in the winter. Sometimes, sheds are furnished and used as home offices. All of these uses require various accessories.
Salesmen need to be aware of all of these various needs and how to fulfill them. The simple garden shed may be a place to store tools, or it may be an extension of the home.
