How to Keep Sheds in Salt Lake City Clean and Organized

How to Keep Sheds in Salt Lake City Clean and Organized

By | Blog | No Comments

Sheds can be a great storage solution for those of us who need some extra space. But with improper care, this great storage solution could turn into a musty, cobweb-ridden cave where tools go to collect dust and be forgotten. From A-Shed USA, your local experts on storage sheds in Salt Lake City, here are our best tips for keeping your shed neat and organized.

Seeing Is Believing

It’s hard to keep your shed clean if it’s too dark to see anything. If your shed has no windows or electrical lighting, that might be part of the reason why clutter just seems to keep building up in your shed. Consider hiring a contractor to install electric wiring in your shed. Or, if you want to start completely fresh, most of our models at A-Shed USA allow for multiple windows of various shapes and sizes.

Making Use of the Walls

At A-Shed USA, our sheds come in multiple wall heights for a reason. To keep your shed clutter free, make use of all the vertical space at your disposal. Since so many tools are made of metal, an easy way to do this is with magnets. Simply attach a strong metal bar to the wall of your shed, and you’ll not only be taking advantage of more of your storage space, but you’ll also be able to quickly identify the tools you need. No more rooting around drawers and toolboxes. You can achieve a similar effect with a pegboard. Since a pegboard isn’t magnetic, you’ll need to acquire some pegs, but once you do, you have an easy way to keep your tools organized.

Also, don’t forget about the vertical space on the exterior of the shed. You can attach hooks to the side of the shed to hang outdoor items, such as garden hoses. Just be sure the items you store in this area can stand up to the elements. However, if you want to store things that aren’t waterproof on the outside of your shed, you build a supply cabinet out of scrap wood and attach it to the wall.

Storage Shelves and Drawers

Whether you like the convenience of buying pre-made shelves or you’re more of a do it yourself kind of person, shelves with drawers or bins will be a huge help when it comes to organizing your shed. You can buy or make bins, but you can also use old paint cans and gardening pots. Shelves and containers are the perfect solution for organizing gardening supplies, sports equipment, camping gear, and so much more.

If you have children, shelves are a great way to keep hazardous cleaners and pesticides out of reach. Additionally, you can put colorful storage bins on the lower shelves to keep outdoor toys all in one place.

If you’ve tried all these tips and your current shed still isn’t cutting it, A-Shed USA does more than sell storage sheds in Salt Lake City. Our experienced builders and engineers will expertly install a custom shed perfectly catered to your storage needs.

The decision to get a shed added to your property is a big one. Once you decide on getting a shed, however, a big question remains: What type of shed is right for you? A-Sheds USA is your go-to location for storage sheds in Salt Lake City, because in addition to our wide selection of products, we also offer custom alterations for select models. To help you narrow down your options, here is a guide to our different types of sheds.

Ranch Sheds

A-Sheds USA’s ranch shed is our best-selling model for a number of reasons. The ability to make it truly your own is one of them. All of our ranch-style sheds can be customized to accommodate your vision. Our ranch sheds come in three different wall heights: 6’9”, 7’9”, and 9’9”. The height variations allow you to maximize storage space without taking up too much space in your yard. You can also choose the placements and sizes of doors and any windows you want to include. Finally, A-Shed USA gives the option of installing ramps, venting, shelving, and lofting, as well as a wide variety of shed exteriors. When you choose the ranch shed, you can be sure that your vision will be executed.

Barn Sheds for Sale in Denver

Barn sheds are your go-to if you have a lot of material to store. Like the ranch sheds, barn sheds come in the same three wall heights. In addition, however, the barn shed is designed to accommodate an addition of a lofted area. Not only are barn sheds perfect for maximizing storage space, but they also have that classic, rustic, country aesthetic that will bring charm to your yard.

J-Series Sheds

If you want a shed that will look visually cohesive with your home, the J-Series shed is for you. Unlike the previous two models, all J-Series sheds come with boxed overhangs, floor coating, a heat barrier, ridge venting, and so much more. These are included in the standard J-Series shed, but you also have the option to add lofting, transom windows, and other customizations. The finished product will look more like a cute miniature house than a traditional shed, and with all of the storage space you look for in a shed.

YardMaster Sheds

If you’re on a budget and want to keep it simple, take a look at our YardMaster sheds. YardMaster sheds are designed specifically for thrifty minimalists like you. With this model, you can get the same amount of space as some of our other sheds without having to pay for standard features that you may not need. The YardMaster shed comes in a number of different sizes. Your shed could be as small as 6’x6’ or as large as 10’x16’.

If none of these sheds quite meet all of your needs, A-Shed USA also will work with you to create a custom shed. Whatever you’re looking for, A-Shed USA can provide you with storage sheds in Denver that are right for you.

It’s Spring — Is Your Garden Shed Ready?

By | Blog | No Comments

Every spring, you venture back into your garden shed to retrieve your tools and your lawn mower so you can get your yard back into shape. But what about your garden shed? Is that in shape? A-Shed USA, with locations in Salt Lake City and Denver, can help you determine what type of TLC — if any — your storage shed needs.

Is Your Garden Shed Solid?

When you open your garden shed doors and step in, does the structure move at all? A little squeaking here and there may be OK, but if the walls move visibly as you walk inside, this can be a concern. The answer may be to tighten up a few bolts or replace some screws, but the problem could be more serious than that.

The shape your storage shed is in depends partly upon its age. If you’ve had your garden shed for more than five years and it feels a bit rickety, it’s best to get it checked out by a professional before someone gets hurt.

Is Your Storage Shed Starting to Look Ugly?

Garden sheds need upkeep in order to last, just like your home. If your shed is made of wood, it needs to be painted or sealed from time to time. If your shed is made of metal, you must look for rust spots regularly and treat them right away, before they spread.

Metal storage sheds can last longer than wooden sheds, but they are also vulnerable to problems such as limbs or heavy branches falling on them and causing dents. A dent in your metal shed can be hard to repair so that it looks nice again. It can also make that area of your garden shed more prone to rust.

If you have a plastic storage shed, you don’t have to do much upkeep. A good hosing off inside and out a couple of times a year should be all you need.

Are You Running Out of Room for Your Stuff in Your Shed?

Your garden shed may have been adequate when you bought it some years ago, but you may have acquired more items since then. Storage sheds have a way of accumulating sports equipment, gardening tools, decorations and other items.

If your storage shed didn’t come with shelving or wall hangers, consider installing some to clear floor space. However, if it’s packed tight, you may need a bigger storage shed.
