The number of garden sheds for sale has been increasing, as buyers seek solutions to not only their storage needs, but also the need for safe and secure work spaces to perform DIY which wouldn’t otherwise be feasible. This type of outdoor building is generally constructed from three materials: wood, metal and plastic. While each of these materials feature their own unique advantages and qualities, plastic sheds are one of the most common picks by many homeowners.
The major advantages of Plastic sheds are:
- UV resistant
Often less expensive than metal sheds, plastic shed designs are an excellent choice for anyone who wants a low maintenance garden building. They make a great storage solution for gardening tools, outdoor furniture and other bulky items, including bicycles.
Plastic is impermeable, meaning sheds of this material are perfect for keeping out the rain, snow, and ice. Not only that, but they also offer durability and weather resistance, making them a longer-lasting and maintenance-free alternative, all whilst providing the perfect storage space for any of your gardening items.
Strong yet also lightweight, they can be easily moved around the garden into your preferred position. In addition, some plastic sheds are also UV resistant, meaning they won’t fade in the sun.
Unlike their wood and metal counterparts, plastic sheds are not prone to termite invasion, and they avoid issues like rust. Plus, they’re easy to assemble. Overall, plastic sheds are a maintenance-free type of garden building which place an enormous and increasingly popular emphasis on convenience.

Best Plastic Sheds #5: BillyOh Daily Apex (Including Foundation Kit) ( £399.00)
Unstable build? A lack of resistance against heat? Limited visual appeal? These are some of the negative connotations that homeowners allocate to plastic garden sheds.
Now take a look at this BillyOh Daily Apex Plastic Shed and have those pre-conceptions squashed!
Built with a firm support system, the Daily shed comes with a reliable steel framework that’s galvanised, adding strength to the structure. This allows the lightweight garden storage unit to withstand pressure against external elements, such strong winds and the internal strain brought about by heavy materials stored within.
What we like about this plastic shed is that it’s constructed using vinyl cladding. This means they’re naturally fire-retardant and durable. Sun damage also becomes a non-issue, as the coat protects the structure from UV, which would otherwise cause heavy deformation on plastic products.
Other product features include integrated windows, a lockable front door, and moulded flooring.

One of the doors on the StoreMax has an interior door lock, with a steel barrel bolt on the top and bottom, providing maximum security for the shed. It also features two integrated windows on the doors, which help to maintain the traditional appearance of the shed, whilst allowing natural light into the building.
