Steel vs Wooden Sheds:
whats are the differences between them?
So you know you want a shed, but you can’t decide if you want a Steel one or a Wooden one, right? Happens all the time. “Are steel sheds better than wooden sheds?”, or “are wooden sheds better?” are questions that we get asked quite a lot here in Sheds Direct Ireland. With that in mind, we decided to make this handy, complete guide which outlines the differences between Steel and Wooden Sheds. We hope it helps!
The short version
Steel Sheds’ Best Points:
Steel sheds are on average much cheaper than their wooden alternatives. Particularly in the larger sizes.
Steel Sheds can be shipped flatpacked. This keeps the price down even further, but it means that we can get our sheds across Ireland quickly.
Virtually No Maintenance
If you want a low maintenance shed, a Steel Shed is the best option for you.
Wooden Sheds’ Best Points:
Add windows, doors, verandas, cat flaps and more to your hearts content.
Preferred by Gardeners
Wooden Sheds are more breatheable – ideal if you’re sowing plants.
Most wooden sheds come with a window, so there’s a natural light source.
