Shed information by manufacturer
Lifetime Products storage sheds features an HDPE plastic exterior paneling for the walls, roof, doors, and floor. HDPE plastic is a beneficial material for sheds as it does not fade, crack, or peel like traditional plastics, does not rust like metal sheds, and does not need repainting like wood sheds. The modular design of Lifetime storage sheds also makes them less complicated to assemble than more intricately designed wooden sheds. Inside the shed, the shed is supported by powder-coated steel. This powder coating helps the metal resist rusting and prolongs the life and strength of the steel. These sheds are sturdy and typically have a snow load capcity of at least 20 lbs. per square foot, depending on the model being ordered. All Lifetime sheds are backed by a 10-year factory warranty from the manufacturer, Lifetime Products.
Duramax makes both vinyl (a stiffer polymer than HDPE plastic) and metal storage sheds. For Duramax's vinyl models, these sheds vary greatly in size from relatively compact with low ceilings to large garage sheds. Vinyl, like HDPE plastic, will typically not need repainting like wooden sheds. Duramax metal sheds are typically garage-size sheds. Some of these sheds actually have roll-up garage doors; other's will have double-door entryways. Metal sheds are well-suited for larger storage needs as they provide better strength through the shed over larger areas than many plastic or vinyl sheds. Both Duramax's vinyl sheds and metal sheds are modular in design and are relatively easy to assembly when compared to a wood shed.
Reynolds Best Barn Kits
Reynolds Building System Best Barn Kits are wooden sheds. When plastic, vinyl, and metal are not strong enough for your shed's needs, wood is the way to go. Best Barn kits are customizable and can be relatively small to relatively large. Wood sheds are much stronger overall all than vinyl, plastic, and metal sheds; they have a higher wind rating and higher snow-load capacity. They are also more difficult to assemble. The pictures displayed for these sheds are depictions of completed projects with different customizations. It is important to keep in mind when looking at these sheds that most of the parts for the customizations are not included with the shipment and must be purchased locally. That said, the customizations possible with Best Barn Kits - windows, specialized doors, roof features, colors - are not possible with plastic, vinyl, and metal sheds.
