You’ve brought home your new shed, so now what? Taking good care of your shed is an important aspect of shed ownership. Here are some tips and tricks for keeping your shed looking sharp.
Choose premium construction. Be sure to choose a shed with quality materials and durable construction when making your choice. A shed with premium construction is much easier to maintain than a shed whose materials will easily breakdown.
Landscape the area around your shed. Adding flowers or shrubs around your shed gives your shed an attractive look and aesthetic value to your yard.
Give your shed an annual maintenance check. Every year, take some time to look over your shed and see if it needs cleaned or if it has any issues to take care of. Keeping it clear of dirt and taking care of small issues right away helps to prevent major issues later on.
Touch-up the exterior. The exterior will naturally wear down over time, especially when it gets used frequently or the weather is rough. Taking time to touch-up the paint or re-stain the wood when it gets blemished guarantees that attractive look to last. If you don’t have any touchup paint, contact your truPoint Backyards dealer, and they’ll get some for you!
Clean inside your shed. Build-up of dirt, mud, and water inside your shed will cause the interior to rot and creates nasty odors quicker than if you keep it clean. Maintaining the inside of your shed ensures it not only last long, but smells good as it does.
Think about installing LuxGuard flooring. LuxGuard flooring allows you to protect your floor against rotting plus adds stability to the structure of your shed. LuxGuard is a strong, rubber flooring with fiber glass backing that protects the floor of your shed from leaks, chips, and strain from heavy equipment.
Once you get your shed installed, extend its lifespan by maintaining it well. These simple habits for keeping your shed attractive will help your shed last for years to come.
