The Drawbacks of Hardware Shed Kits
Shed kits are growing in popularity; they are a cheaper alternative that you can pick up at a hardware store. With just a few hours of dedicated work, you can have your very own shed! Easy right? However, these sheds may not be all they seem to be. You’ve heard the old saying “if it’s too good to be true it probably is,” and hardware shed kits are no exception.
Here are a few drawbacks to hardware shed kits you may not be aware of:
Often the lifespan of hardware shed form kits is extremely low. As opposed to getting a couple of decades or almost a century from the quality shed, you may get about a five or ten years at the most from a shed built from a kit. Even for a reduced cost, this a shed kit may not be the most worthwhile investment.
Hardware shed kits promote easy and fast installation, however putting up a shed is anything but simple. There is the possibility of messing up, and this can compromise the already fragile product. What was supposed to be completed in a few days can drag on for weeks.
Because these kits are basically a ready-made shed in a box, your ability to customize it is greatly reduced. Additionally, because the shed is so cheap, you likely won’t be able to add to it, even with the help of a professional, without compromising the structure even more.
Hardware shed kits are prone to leaks. Chances are good sealants won’t be used at or around the cracks and crevices of the shed and certainly not near doors. These faults defeat the primary purpose of the shed, which is to provide protection to your storage items.
Hardware shed kits are not built with strong materials. Moreover, the manufacturers of these kits simply want to make a quick buck and don’t really care much beyond you buying their product.
