Wooden Sheds: Best Choices for 2021

[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 2021, 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 2021.

For 2021, if you want a really fancy shed, you’re back to wooden shed choices!

Bob from Nassau County NY

First ,your crew was exceptional they finished the project on time. The quality was more then I expected. The price was under budget. THANKS I would recommend your company to any one.

Richard Stegner from Shelter Island N.Y.

Ordered my 12x14 Shed from Sheds Unlimited. Ordered a kit style due to a fence issue getting into my backyard. The kit came very nicely packed and no damage. I soon realized that the door style that I thought I order was not the style shipped. I contacted customer service and they offered to drive up the right doors the next day and exchange them. I was shocked that they were willing to do this with what seemed a misunderstanding during the ordering. Very polite and professional. I ended up keeping the doors shipped cause I liked the way they looked but was still impressed with the offer to resolve the issue. I also recieved a broken door locking latch bolt (small extra part) . Sheds unlimited shipped one up and I had it in 3 days. Great company. Thanks , love the SHED. My kit looks like your assembled sheds and I'm not a contractor. I do recommend that maybe a few more shingles are sent with the kits. I only had 1 left over shingle. If I hadent made all perfect cuts or had a few damaged I would have been short. Otherwise 5 star rating.

I am so glad I got my building here! The guys that put up my 16' by 28' were so polite & nice & really hard workers! I never even saw them take a break. The building is solid as a rock & the price was the best I found & I checked at least a dozen places. So glad I bought here!!!

Kelley Fisher from Blandford,MA

I couldn't be more pleased with the Shed that I ordered. The staff (Dave ) I spoke with was so very easy to work with. The shed arrived on time and was placed perfectly on the concrete pad I had waiting. The driver was professional and made sure everything was correct. Just a great all around experience and will recommend your firm.

All the people at shed unlimited are great people seeing the shed are asking if I plan to live in the shed, it looks better than their house. I have only one complaint. The weather vane was not set with North pointing North and my wife will not let me climb on the roof to correct it.

William Evans from Ocean View DE

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

It was a pleasure to buy a shed from a company that knows customers service. The ordering process was so EZ and the delivery was so simple with there delivery mule. Every other shed company just wanted to drop the shed in the driveway and I was responsible for getting it in the back yard for about the same price. The construction of the shed was top notch.
Thank You Sheds Unlimited, I would highly recommend you to anyone.
