Shed Cost Factors: Size, Purpose, Materials Used

Knowing how much you’ll be spending on any kind of home purchase or project is naturally important, and those installing any kind of storage shed or other custom building on their property are no exception. Which are the key factors that will help determine the costs of your shed design, build and installation?

At A-Shed USA, we’re here to offer a huge range of storage sheds, garages and other custom buildings to meet all your needs — and we’re happy to discuss all the major variables that play a role in your final shed costs. In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over some of the most important such elements, plus how to consider them alongside your overall budget.

Shed Size

As you may have already guessed, one of the single largest determiners of the overall cost of your shed will be its size. And, just as with any home purchase or remodeling project, it’s important to consider this carefully — both in terms of what you actually want and need, and what fits within your budget.

Do you have a lot of stuff that needs to be stored? Do you run a business out of a shed? Do you need space for projects or hobbies that take up a lot of room? These are the kinds of considerations that can help determine your shed size — and, thus, its overall cost. Smaller sheds may well be more affordable at first glance, but if they don’t meet all your needs, you could wind up needing to upgrade later on, which can also mean spending more.

Shed Purpose and Amenities

Another key consideration when determining shed costs is its purpose. Do you just need storage for gardening equipment, or will it also be used as a workshop? If you plan to store cars, boats or other large items in your shed, do you need overhead clearance? These are important factors that can influence your overall budget — especially if you want a number of beneficial features and amenities.

In addition to size and purpose, the overall look of your shed can also play a role in pricing — as will its construction material and design. You might opt for durable premium sheds or one of our attractive-looking prefabricated buildings, which can help you get the most out of your budget.

Materials Used

Another key factor in determining your shed costs is the materials used in its construction. With everything from vinyl, wood and metal to composite, engineered wood and various composites on offer these days, it’s important to research all of the different options before making a decision.

Costs will vary based on material (as well as size and purpose), but you can also consider the overall strength, durability and longevity of different options. What materials will be easier to maintain over time? How well do they complement your home’s exterior? Will they help you save money on insurance premiums down the line?
