A shed can be the perfect storage solution. But with a wide selection, it can be tough to choose the one that's right for you. Don't worry, you got this. Sheds come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Consider the type of storage you need. Storage boxes work well for immediate needs, such as patio pillows or outdoor toys. Horizontal or vertical sheds accommodate long garden or pool equipment, along with options for shelving. Storage buildings are designed to look like a home or barn. Available in different sizes, these sheds can house everything from a bike to a workshop table. Next, consider materials. Most sheds at Canadian Tire come in a maintenance-free steel or resin. Galvanized steel sheds are a strong, affordable option. They provide strong corrosion resistance and never fade or rot. Easy to assemble resin sheds often come in a refined grain finish to better complement your yard or home. These durable sheds won't degrade and include a floor that can be fixed to the ground. Next, consider some key features. Shed ventilation provides proper airflow and prevents and fights mildew and fumes from building up. Natural light is essential if you plan on spending time in your shed. Look for one with sufficient windows or a skylight. Make sure your largest piece of equipment can fit easily through the door. Sliding doors are better for tight spaces, while swing doors provide a wider opening, if you have room. Choose a door with a lock latch if security is important. Sheds have different assembly requirements, so take note of what you will need. If you would rather leave assembly to a professional, the Home Service Install Program is always ready to help. With size, strength, stability, and durability in mind, picking the right shed just got a lot easier. Don't worry, you got this.
