What to Look for in a Wood Shed
Type of Wood
The type of wood used is very important. Some sheds are made out of the cheapest material, whereas others use lumber sourced specifically for their sheds.
Cedar is a popular lumber to make sheds from because it is naturally resistant to rot and pests.
How the Frame is Built
The distances between the studs in the frame can tell you a lot about the quality of the shed, and the manufacturer. 16″ is a good distance.
Although they tend to be more expensive, not all wood sheds come all inclusive.
Most don't come with a foundation, and the parts aren't painted. But others don't come with drip edge, or shingles, which can also add up to some extra money.
Lumber is a natural product so it isn't always perfect. Wood can come twisted, bowed or with knots in it which make it very hard to work with. Sometimes it can be so bad that you can't work with it.
Having a warranty can mean that you get some more wood to finish your shed, rather than replace it out of your own pocket.
