Choosing a DIY shed kit might seem like the cheapest, fastest solution when you need extra storage and you need it fast. But does it really deliver on the benefits many of these DIY shed kit suppliers talk about?
When it comes down to it, saving money is good, but what if the shed doesn’t last longer than one Utah winter? What if you can’t even finish building it? These are questions you should ask yourself before spending money on a shed kit, no matter how inexpensive it may be. If it doesn’t deliver on expectations, it’s a waste of money.
Below are four main drawbacks to depending on a kit to resolve your outdoor storage needs.
Customization Is Limited
With a predetermined layout, you can’t expand the dimensions of a DIY shed kit. If you’re looking for a building to adapt to specifications, you are out of luck. Making changes to the shed will be difficult, and you’ll likely end up frustrated if the kit doesn’t turn out the way you expected. When you order a pre-fab or a custom-built shed, you get control over the project.
Durability Is Questionable
Since DIY shed kits aren’t finished by a professional, they usually aren’t guaranteed to last as long as a building that is built by a contractor on site. If you’re looking for a shed to last the long term, this probably isn’t it.
Bad Instructions Can Sabotage the Project
The quality of the finished product will likely be a direct result of the quality of the directions. If you aren’t a construction expert, you will need clear, easy-to-follow steps to complete the job. And if the instructions are not detailed, you’ll be annoyed and may have to guess — not a recipe for a high-quality result.
You Need Time and Tools
As much as you may believe you’re saving by going the DIY route, you’re probably not if you count the time it will take you to put together the project. You’ll also need some tools too, and if you don’t already have them, that’s another expense.
