What to Watch For

Always keep an eye on your shed’s siding, looking for signs of peeling or flaking. A-Shed USA uses high-quality siding that comes with a manufacturer’s 50-year warranty. But it’s essential that you keep up with painting it regularly so that it’s protected from the elements.

What You Can Do

How can you can extend the life of your shed?

First, trim all overhanging tree branches. In a bad storm, a branch could break and fall on the roof. This could potentially be catastrophic for your backyard shed. Even if overhanging branches don’t look dead, it’s best to stay proactive and prune them before they cause a problem.

Also trim vegetation around the edges of the shed. This will help prevent insect infestations as well as moisture buildup, which could lead to rot. Direct lawn sprinklers away from your shed to avoid repeatedly soaking it unnecessarily.

Another shed maintenance tip is to make sure water doesn’t drain toward your shed. Pooling water near the shed’s foundation can lead to damage, mold and rot. It could eventually weaken the entire structure. Assess your landscaping’s drainage patterns and talk to a professional for tips on how to redirect water flow if necessary.
