Choosing the Right Shed Builder: Quality, Durability, and Trust

Whether you choose to work with us or aren’t quite sure yet, the ultimate keys to your perfect storage shed are the quality of the build, durable materials, and overall attention to detail. Not sure what exactly to look for? In today’s blog, we’re breaking down exactly what you need to know to make the best, and most informed, choice of portable shed. 

With Quality Storage Buildings, you can purchase your portable shed confidently knowing that we not only meet industry standards of excellence, but we pride ourselves on exceeding our own strict expectations to provide a superior and long-lasting shed for our customers. Here are a few of the elements that you should be looking for in your next shed purchase. 

1. Structural Integrity

The true strength of a shed is hidden within its frame — the skeleton that holds the entire structure together. While the finishing touches may be nice to look at, if the structure underneath is low quality or poorly planned, your shed simply won’t last. To get a good idea of the structure’s quality, you’ll want to look for the spacing between studs first. A strong frame will feature a frame that looks similar to a home’s with 2 by 4 studs that are a maximum of 16 inches apart. Any further and the frame risks breaking or bowing over time. While larger gaps between studs may mean that the cost of the shed is lower overall, it also means that the frame isn’t built to last as long. 

At Quality Storage Buildings, we understand that durability starts with meticulous attention to the frame. We don’t just build portable sheds. We start with a solid home-like shed frame and then fortify every element of your shed’s structure, caulking and sealing every joint and nail so you can purchase confidently. 

2. Sturdy Materials

Your shed’s battle against the Texan sun and its wide variety of intense weather begins with the choice of building materials. From the choice of wood, metal, vinyl, and more, you can tell a lot about your shed manufacturer by the caliber of materials that they select to build into their sheds. There is certainly a level of quality that you can expect depending on the price point that you’re looking at, but make sure that you aren’t sacrificing quality for beauty. If the materials are not good quality, the beauty of your new shed won’t stay beautiful for long. Typically, lower-end sheds will feature vinyl or plastic elements and will not last as long, but will feature a lower price point. Metal is a great choice for a shed because of its durability and weather resistance, but you’ll want to consider that a fully metal building will lock in that Texas heat. Wood sheds are a fantastic option for building a lasting portable building, but make sure that the shed you choose uses treated lumber. Untreated wood will break down over time and not provide the value that you’re looking for from your investment. 

At Quality Storage Buildings, we employ only the finest building materials, including treated lumber and high-quality metal elements like roofing, ensuring that each storage building is not just a temporary structure but a lasting part of your homestead. 

3. Attention to Detail

Our dedication to quality goes beyond the structural and material; it’s woven into the very fabric of our work ethic. Every nail, every joint, and every panel is a testament to our pursuit of perfection. It’s this meticulous attention to detail that elevates our sheds from just structures to masterpieces of craftsmanship.

Whomever you choose to purchase your shed from, you’ll want to look at more than just the overall aesthetic and even function of the shed you’re considering. Look at the small details — trim work, seals between doors and windows, neatness of joints, etc. Also, ask your sales representative about how they prioritize attention to detail through the shed-building process. You’ll learn a lot about the caliber of company that you’re purchasing from by zooming in to the lesser-appreciated details. 

4. Built for the Heat

If you’re a born-and-raised Texan or moved here more recently, you know how hot it gets in our great state. No matter where in the state you live, you know how intense the summer months can get, and you’ll want to make sure that your shed is built to last as well as keep your stored items safe from the soaring temperatures. Exposure to hot temperatures can take a toll on your shed, as well as make otherwise sturdy materials expand. You’ll want to ensure that the materials you choose are built to withstand the blistering heat. 

Flooring Options Designed for the Heat

When the summer months bring 100+ degree days, you need to know that your shed’s flooring is prepared to stand up to the heat. When the temperatures are soaring, you will want to make sure that your shed's flooring can support all of your items inside and not break down over time due to high heat. Consider the following features of your shed’s floor to guide your choice of shed purchase. Look for flooring that is: 

  • Waterproof 
  • Slip-resistant
  • Durable against heat, cold, and exposure to chemicals
  • Insect-resistant 
  • Easy to maintain

At Quality Storage Buildings, we largely use two types of flooring that have stood the test of time in Texas's harsh elements over the years: 

Vinyl Flooring Rolls: Vinyl rolls are an all-around good solution for the floor of a shed. Vinyl is waterproof, slip-resistant, and can withstand most household chemicals. Plus, it's effortless to clean. 

Plywood Flooring: A pressure-treated plywood shed garden shed flooring idea is one of the best options available. Wood rot, insects, and water are all resistant to pressure-treated plywood. As well as being easy to paint and sweep, it is also easy to maintain.

Choose Under-siding for Better Heat Resistance

No matter what company you choose to purchase a portable shed from, you’ll want to take a hard look at the siding that they use. Particularly when we’re looking at soaring summer highs, the siding will take a beating from the elements and can make a huge difference in the shed’s ability to last over time. 

For our customers at Quality Storage Buildings, we highly recommend LP Silver TechShield under-siding to equip your shed for the harsh Texas elements. With LP Silver TechShield, you can expect: 

  • Energy Efficiency: Helps block radiant heat in the roof panel from emitting into the shed, reducing shed temperatures by up to 30º F.
  • Super Moisture Resistance: Patented VaporVents™ technology allows any trapped moisture to escape from the radiant barrier panels during and after installation.
  • Easy Installation: Installs like conventional roof sheathing, require no additional labor or installation time.
