At Hometown Sheds, we aim to please, and with so many options, we know sometimes decisions can be overwhelming. If you’ve been debating about what type of exterior is best for your new shed, we want to give you all the information you’ll need to make an educated decision.
Love At First Sight. As with any investment, you want to make sure that your shed is appealing as well as functional. While both metal and wood options come in a variety of colors, wood sheds offer a more traditional beauty. You can choose a stained wood option to match a more rustic or natural scenery, or completely customize the color through paint. Metal siding does not need to be painted and also comes in a variety of colors. This option is especially useful if the shed will be close to your home or if your HOA requires a certain color.
A Lasting Relationship. With either option, you want your shed to last for years to come. With a metal shed, there’s no need for much up keep or paint for possibly decades. Metal does require routine cleaning with soap and water, but no pressure washing. This type of exterior is also weather resistant for cold snowy days or warm sunny climates. Wood also needs cleaning and preventative maintenance such as staining or painting to prevent chipping, moisture and insects. Painting is recommended every 7-10 years on wood sheds. A wood building if properly maintained, can last you a lifetime.
While there are pros and cons to both wood and metal buildings, at Hometown Sheds we are here to help you decide which option would fit best with your home, business, and lifestyle. Call or us or stop in today to take a peek at our many options and let us answer your tough questions about the great debate.
