Wooden Sheds: Best Choices for 2020

[field_lastmodifieddate] Sheds Unlimited Sheds Unlimited
Wooden Sheds

Back in the day, cheap wooden sheds were about the only choice if you needed backyard storage. They came with several variations of wood siding including T111, board and batten and then later DuraTemp siding.  But all required plenty of maintenance, the minimum of which was keeping the paint on the wooden sheds fresh.

Vinyl and Wooden Sheds

From Wooden Sheds to Vinyl Sheds

Then came the addition of economy vinyl sheds. Vinyl Storage Sheds were bragged up to be the best maintenance free storage sheds on the market.

And no doubt, a vinyl sided shed lasts a very long time! There is virtually nothing to keep up with. No paint, no rotting (if you have a pressure treated floor), and more sleep at night!

The Latest: Wooden Sheds are in Vogue Again

But fads have changed and so has the taste and design of WOODEN SHEDS. For 2019, if you want a real fancy shed (and yes, a bit more maintenance), you’re back to wooden shed choices! You can still buy the economy wooden sheds that have been around for decades and they come in much better wooden siding choices.

However, new choices in siding mean Higher end sheds come in a wood of another era. Read on to see the wooden shed siding choices from Sheds Unlimited for 2019.

For 2020, if you want a really fancy shed, you’re back to wooden shed choices!

Three Siding Choices for Wooden Sheds

Economy Wooden Sheds

1. Wooden Sheds: LP SmartSiding with 50-year Warranty

Sheds with LP SmartSide are certainly the up-and-coming popular choice when one wants an economical wooden shed that will stand the test of time.

This product has been heavily tested for standing up against the weather, heat, termites, and longevity. Unlike older T111 siding choices, this will not have trouble with bubbles under the top veneer.

SmartSide is available with three different backers

2. SmartSide Lap Siding

After the fad of vinyl siding wore off, back came the wooden storage sheds in a much more classy look that mimics vinyl siding in the exterior look...with just a bit more uppity look and technology. As mentioned, these LP SmartSide products are designed to stand the test of time.

It comes with a 5/50 Year Limited Warranty which means you should have peace of mind for a long, long time to come! If you like the look of this Premier Garden Shed, then this might be for you.

Cheap wooden buildings

A few design tweaks make this Classic Outdoor Wooden Shed look a bit more…Classy. Note the wider overhangs, the larger windows, a steeper roof pitch which all add to the aesthetics. Tip: Add foil-backed sheathing on the roof and keep your shed much cooler during the summer!

Overall outstanding people, outstanding company and outstanding product. Delivery and set-up was Incredibly Professional and Skilled. Glenn delivered the wood shed - a very odd shape at 16 x 4 and extremely difficult to place on location given the small hill, basketball pole in the way and unstable shape (4' width). Matched perfectly a shed purchased several years before from Sheds Unlimited. Would go to Sheds Unlimited again (and did).

Chris from Doylestown, PA

Very nice construction and looks like it was built with the house. Delivery went well with a very little damage to the grass. Would easily recommend SHed Unlimited to anyone wanting a very good value.

John from Frederick MD

rache d from Dorset vermont

The process was very easy and everyone was helpful and professional. The delivery driver was great and I was impressed by how easy he made it look to move a huge shed onto the shed pad. I will use Sheds Unlimited again!!!

Alex Rota from Pottstown, PA

My experience with Sheds Unlimited was Excellent. The shed is exactly what I ordered. Delivery was on time and the Customer Service was all excellent. I would definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Dee from .Norriton P

Answered all our questions before we bought the shed. Patient with our questions, friendly and helpful. No pressure. Delivery was a breeze. Everyone is professional, nice, and knowledgeable . What a pleasure! Already recommended to friends.

Paul & Kathy Jones from Wilmington, DE

Our 12x16 high wall barn with loft was expertly delivered (thanks, Ryan!) and is everything we had hoped for and more.  Superior construction of the building and the state of the art equipment for delivery and expertise of the delivery person are the standout features I address in this review.  If there were a sixth star to give, Sheds Unlimited would get it!

Bill McCarl from Clarksville, MD

Seamless from start to finish. Good price, good product, good job!

Steve from Jersey Shore

Looks great. Plenty of storage space. Delivered exactly when specified. Price reasonable. Good people to deal with! I am Happy, Happy Happy

James Yunker Sr from Oxford Pa

The experience with Sheds Unlimited was professional and easy from start to finish. I needed a very specific size shed, and my wife wanted something that was very attractive. Sheds Unlimited customized our shed with every detail. It is very well made, and good looking. The delivery was as promised and very professionally done. The "mule" delivery system allowed for great flexibility to maneuver around trees, and the shed was positioned perfectly on the base. A piece of trim was damaged, and they had a repairman out in no time to replace the piece. It was a no-hassle experience from start to finish in addition to offering a great customized shed at a fair price. I would not hesitate to recommend Sheds Unlimited.
