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 2019, if you want a really fancy shed, you’re back to wooden shed choices!

Three Siding Choices for Wooden Sheds

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.

Our local zoning board had a ton of requirements that resulted in us changing our shed order 3 times. Sheds Unlimited was very flexible and helpful. In the end we love our shed and are happy that we went to Shed's Unlimited to get it. We highly recommend.

Purchased a 10' x 16' semi-custom shed from Sheds Unlimited in the summer of 2013. Every part of the process was superb including the quality and delivery of the final product. Highly recommended.

Sascha Prochaska from Mendham, NJ

Great experience with Sheds Unlimited from inquiring, ordering, follow up and delivery. The shed is just as ordered. Beautifully made. Delivery guys arrived as scheduled, and perfectly placed. Very happy and definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited to others. Thank you.

John from Long Island

This is my first shed purchase that I have made. I always want the most bang for my buck so I shopped around for kits, scratch build and pre-built sheds and I cam across Sheds unlimited. I found working with this company to be a very rewarding experience. Their staff is very helpful and go the extra mile to get you the shed that you want at an exceptional price. The build quality of the shed I received is much superior to other sheds I have looked at. I have and will recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone that is in the market for this type of product. 

Thank You Very Much

We live in northern Maryland and based on prior reviews, we decided to go with Sheds Unlimited. These guys know what they're doing - When it was time for delivery these guys maneuvered our 8' X 10' shed and placed it on the pad perfectly. The shed is beautiful and well-made and we are very happy with Sheds Unlimited quality and service.

Russell from Timonium, MD

I had a customer who asked me to find him a shed that would replace his old pool shed. Working with Sheds Unlimited was a wonderful experience. It started with a very helpful website that allowed me to find just the product I needed, along with all the options that made sense for my project. The location in which the shed was to be installed required the shed to be built on-site. The crew of two arrived at 6:30 in the morning! and were hammering their first nails at 7:30. These guys work hard, are very conscientious, and did a terrific job. They were done by 10:30 and the site was clean when they left. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a shed or garage!

Matt Capitolo from Elkins Park, PA

john krickbaum from Catonsville md

Working with Sheds unlimited has been by far one of the best professional experiences I have ever had. At first we chose them for a garage to accommodate one a custom race boat we added to our fleet of yachts for charter and selected Sheds unlimited for there great price. Working with them prior to delivery was seamless and when our garage was delivered on April 12th the driver/installer arrived exactly when we where told he would. We actually videos the install as the driver transported our 26x12 foot garage through some tight spaces and did it with ease and total professionalism. I have already recommended Sheds Unlimited to a family friend and would to anyone considering a shed or garage for any application. You can use me as a reference anytime for any potential customers that may have concerns. The quality of the garage exceeded my expectations.

Capt. Paul S from Parsippany NJ

The crew at Sheds Unlimited were really a pleasure to work with. From start to finish all were very helpful. David answered all my questions wether it be via phone or email. He was always patient. Shane did a wonderful job on the delivery/install at my home. I woud recommend this company in a heart beat.
Thank you all very much for a job well done.

DD from Cherry Hill

Our experience with Steve Jr., Chris and Nelson was excellent. During the process of deciding to purchase a storage shed, all questions were answered promptly and completely. Our visit to your office and plant was a very pleasant experience as well. Steve arranged for the requested modifications to the shed and the shed was delivered on time and as confirmed by Nelson. The installation of our shed went also on with a glitch. We will recommend Shedsunlimited to any of our friends who might be in need of a product you provide.
Thanks again and best regards,
