Are Plastic Sheds Worth It?

When it comes to bike sheds, metal sheds are often considered a step above plastic sheds. They offer better durability, protection, and aesthetic appeal than a plastic shed. Below is a quick rundown of the benefits and drawbacks of metal bike sheds.

The Pros of Metal

One of the biggest advantages of using a metal shed is that it is incredibly durable and able to withstand harsh weather conditions, such as high winds, hail, and heavy snow. A metal shed is also much more secure than a plastic shed, making it a great choice for storing expensive or high-end bikes.

Another benefit of metal sheds is that they are customizable, you can paint and finish the metal according to your preferences. Metal also offers a more polished and refined appearance than plastic, which can often look cheap or flimsy.

The Cons  

While a metal shed is more durable than a plastic shed, they do require more maintenance. Metal sheds need to be painted or coated periodically to prevent rust, and they are also more expensive than plastic sheds.


Overall, metal sheds offer greater durability and security than the plastic shed, making them a great choice for protecting your bike. Though they do require more maintenance, the benefits are worth the investment. They also look better than plastic sheds, which can appear cheap or flimsy.
