What you need to know about the specifications and uses of timber sheds.

When you’re thinking of investing in a shed, one of the first things that you’ll need to consider is which material you want the product to be made from. Timber sheds often seem like more work than metal ones, and the latter do have some compelling advantages. However, there are still several ways in which timber comes out on top.

Complements any building

Timber has been used as a building material throughout the centuries, so it possesses a certain timeless charm that metal just can’t compete with. This clearly makes it the perfect material to use in conjunction with an older home, but timber sheds also look fantastic next to a modern build. Additionally, as they fit with most design styles, the presence of one typically makes it easier for potential buyers to invest in your property.

Fresh forever

One of the most common complaints that you’ll hear against using timber for outbuildings is that you’ll need to treat it against the elements. This is certainly true, but what many people think of as a chore can actually be an opportunity for you to keep your shed looking brand-new, or change the look of it as you see fit.

Versatile shape and size

Even if a shed can’t be completely custom built to fulfil your exact specifications, you’ll usually find that timber models offer many more choices in terms of their dimensions. This is because they can be put into different configurations quite easily, especially when compared to a material like metal. This is particularly important when you have a small or oddly-shaped space to work with, but it’s always nice to have more options.

Flexible features

Not only are the dimensions of a timber shed relatively versatile, but it’s also far easier to customize the layout. Since wood is generally simple to work with, you can include more windows, doors and storage options in your shed, helping to make it suit whatever need you have in mind. This often becomes more important the longer you plan on using the shed. You might not currently have any need for an extra set of shelves, but it’s nice to know that installing them would never be too much of a bother.

Timber sheds might necessitate slightly more work, but they’re absolutely worth it. Take a look at the great range in our online store here at Betta Buildings today.
