Wooden Sheds: Best Choices for 2019

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 15 months, we had worked with an architect and a couple of builders to develop a plan for an over-sized two car garage. All of the options seemed way too expensive and time consuming to seriously consider. We discovered Sheds Unlimited after searching online for ideas and we found a solution that was better than we had envisioned. Not only did their standard 24’ x 36’ design include the huge loft, their engineers helped to tailor the configuration to incorporate a workshop, larger windows, additional doors and extra-tall ceilings.

We have some home renovation experience and had a desire to be more involved with the project as our own general contractor. Sheds Unlimited team was perfect partner as we navigated the design, permitting and construction phases. They are true professionals and ensured our job went as smooth as possible by pointing out key details that they knew were required to meet local code requirements. Along the way when we ran into inevitable snags that come with a construction project like ours (ours was pretty tricky on a steep grade and down a 100’ gravel driveway), Sheds Unlimited was totally responsive and typically resolved the issues the next day to keep us moving forward.

We live in a long established neighborhood and there was some apprehension from others in the community over the project. Since completion, we’ve received a number of compliments from our neighbors who have remarked about the new building including: “…I can’t believe how well the new garage matches the house – it’s a perfect fit“ and “…it looks like it’s been there the whole time. Your builder did a great job!”

After living with the new garage for more than a year now we continue to be impressed with the quality of the workmanship. We don’t write very many reviews but we had such a great experience with Sheds Unlimited we felt it necessary to pay compliments when they’re really (over)due.

Thank you Sheds Unlimited!!!

I purchased a 2 car garage from Sheds Unlimited and could not be more pleased. The craftsmanship is excellent, the crew was great. Amazed at how well organized they were and they cleaned up, left nothing behind. I could Not purchase the materials in my area for the price of the project. Thank you so much

Barbara from Bridgheampton, New York

My shed build was a challenge as it was hard to pin down the City's zoning rules. Ben and his crew worked great with us to make sure we adhered to all zoning laws by making changes as we needed to. Ben was right on the money with the build out date and handed things over to Austin. Austin worked around my work schedule and the bad weather we were having in our area as well as theirs. Delivery was right on time and was proficient as could be. We have a thin but long backyard and the driver (I really wish I had his name so he could get the recognition he deserves) had no issue wedging our new shed in with ease. We did have a slight issue with the concrete anchors but the driver assured me it was not an issue and would be taken care of. Austin then had Sergey swing by the very next day on his way to another delivery and knocked them right out for us. I just can't say how pleased I was with the communication and build from the 1st. day of contact until today's finish. Thanks Sheds Unlimited Crew.

luze from Chicopee, MA

My shed was delivered yesterday just 7 weeks from the day it was ordered. It is not only exactly what I ordered but it exceeds my expectations. The product quality, customer service and delivery are exemplary. I will HIGHLY recommend Sheds Unlimited to any and all of my family, relatives, neighbors and friends who may be in the market for a shed or other type of outdoor building.

After much research and searching we came upon Sheds unlimited. Reviewed their website which is very easy to navigate and decided to give them a call. Spoke with David and he answered all of our questions and was so pleasant to deal with. We decided to take a ride down and see for ourselves and drop off the deposit. Awesome operation! The entire staff was friendly , spent lots of time with us, even let us take a look at a tiny home!
The delivery was right on time and no problems with getting it on our site. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a well made, well priced shed.

i bought my shed as a kit.I was not expecting the walls and floor to be fully constructed. I was expecting(and hoping) to put it all together myself. Fortunately my son was available to help me carry it all to my back yard and put the walls up, or I would have had a real problem. Also, there were a lot of trim boards of different lengths and colors with no instructions of where they go( I still have some left over afterwards with no clue what they are for). Other than that, the shed looks great and I love it

chris from wilmington

A very nice experience all around. The people on the phone were very nice and most helpful. The delivery people were very polite. Getting the shed into the back yard went very smoothly. Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.
