Now we are well into October and the true weather traits of Autumn are starting to set in it is an even more crucial time to keep your garden tools and valuables safe as well as most importantly dry. The high levels of rain that we are currently experiencing can do irreversible damage to your garden shed. All garden buildings are designed to be totally weatherproof however there are some natural causes you cannot prevent happening depending on what material your shed is made out of. Wooden garden sheds tend to be the worst affected by weather damage as this material if not maintained frequently can be extremely susceptible to water damage and rot on both the outside and the inside of the shed. This rotting on the inside of the shed can be the most dangerous in terms of the condition of your valuables as it can cause condensation to get into your appliances which can result in expensive repairs or complete renewal of items such as lawnmowers and power drills.
When you look to buy a shed you should look for durability as a key feature to your shed, especially in terms of how weather resistant it actually is, as having a product you've chosen purely on how aesthetically pleasing it is can turn into a nightmare when bad weather hits. When tested in extremely bad weather conditions a metal garden shed has many advantages over a wooden shed and requires a lot less maintenance. All metal sheds are covered in a galvanised protective layer applied by the supplier which completely prevents the formation of rust and corrosion of the metal and does not need to be reapplied. Our Asgard sheds are also unique in containing a metal floor base meaning the likelihood of condensation getting into your items is a lot lower than it is in a wooden shed.
