8 Best Storage Sheds for Keeping Your Belongings Safe (2020)

Sheds are traditionally used for garden storage purposes. They make an excellent solution for storage space – when stowing away your outdoor equipment and gardening tools to ensure they remain safe and sound. If you’re planning to purchase a great garden shed, keep in mind that ensuring you choose the best shed is crucial. In this article, we’re going to explore what we believe to be the best storage sheds we sell.

Best Storage Sheds (2020): Amazing Features and Benefits

Strong and Secure Tongue & Groove

Built using Tongue & Groove panels, our best storage sheds are designed with a secure and stable structure in mind that is built to last. The panels interlock, creating a smooth finish which enhances the style and strength of the storage unit.

11mm tongue and groove is the recommended floor for the vast majority of shed uses. The 19mm tongue and groove is the best option when storing heavy duty items.

Tongue & Groove Roof Included

The roofs of our best storage sheds are made using the same technique as the rest of the storage unit, offering a secure and durable covering. The panels of the roof interlock to form a strong bond, preventing water from getting through the roof and inside the storage unit.

For added protection, green mineral roofing felt is available as an additional extra. The watertight felt provides a waterproof covering for the roof, protecting it and its contents from water and weather damage.

Tongue & Groove Floor Options

Two premium flooring options are available: 11mm or 19mm Tongue and Groove Flooring. Both flooring types are made using the same interlocking panel technique as the roof and the rest of the storage unit.

Pressure Treated Options Available

Pressure treatment represents a premium option. It is designed to offer more weather protection and an especially durable building.

For ultimate protection from the elements, it’s worth considering pressure treatment. A pressure treated shed is great for anyone who is looking for a building which will require very little maintenance going forward.

It’ll look great all year round, no matter the weather. If you opt for pressure treatment, you’re sure to have a shed which is built to last, allowing you and your family to keep your would-be garden clutter out of sight.
