This is one of the main characteristics of the construction. First of all, the shed should have a rigid framework. This directly affects the stability both to mechanical and natural influences. The rigid design ensures reliable bonding of steel sheets, the absence of vibration, providing the overall reliability of the structure.

Concerning the material of the walls, there are practically no alternatives here. The most robust and secure constructions are made of steel. However, the quality of the coating is crucial. Galvanization method of steel coating is considered to be the most durable in the production of metal constructions. As a rule, some manufacturers offer galvanised shed with additional powder coating for higher durability. Such models are more expensive, but they will serve you for decades without any sign of corrosion or damage.

After you’ve chosen the model you like, you can add some optional features for the construction durability and convenience. At first, be sure to make a stable base for your shed. You can use a particular lattice framework ensuring the stability. As a finishing, you can use wood or plywood.

You can also equip your shed with mounted shelves to store different tools, consumables, and utensils. It is not recommended to store cement on the floor, as it can become damp, no matter how reliable the shed is. So, the shelves or top chests with drawers are extremely important to make the space ergonomic.

The construction site must be flat, not located in a valley. Otherwise, the rainwater will be accumulated around the construction and will reduce its lifespan.
