Have you been longing for a shed where you can store lawn and garden equipment, sports equipment, compact outdoor furniture, and miscellaneous tools and supplies? When inconspicuous, functional storage is all you’re looking for, the lean-to is the perfect solution.
2 Top Tips for Looking after your Shed
1. Duct Tape for Fabric Shed Covers
Have you ever heard the adage, “Duct tape will fix anything?” This rings true when you’re looking for a quick shed repair on a budget. Duct Tape can repair holes and tears up to 3 inches long in all ShelterLogic polyethylene covers. This tape means you can patch up an area. Other benefits to this high-performance tape include:
- Water and UV resistant
- Conformable for a long-lasting hold
- Easy to unwind and tear off
2. Easy Cover Replacement
If you’ve chosen a shed with a fabric cover, you know it’s a perfect storage solution on a budget. Although ShelterLogic sheds are built to last, several seasons of tough winter weather may wear a fabric cover down. The good news is, there’s an easy shed repair fix. You can simply purchase a replacement kit. That’s right, you don’t have to worry about going out and purchasing a whole new shed after years of wear and tear. A ShelterLogic replacement cover kit is a great way to give your shed an easy makeover.
3. DIY Siding and Door Kits
Is there a piece of siding that’s rotting on your shed? Perhaps some rough weather left a piece of siding torn, causing unsightly damage to your shed. You may think you need to replace your shed altogether. We suggest that with a few tools, you can replace the siding yourself and save cash. This is an especially good option when just a few panels need replacement. In this case, shed repair is a better option than buying an entirely new unit. With items like a hammer, knife, and flat bar, you can do the job yourself and save the money on a professional repair. Replacing the door kit of your steel shed may also be necessary after several years of wear and tear. Luckily, Arrow Storage Products offers affordable door kit solutions that work with most of our sheds.
4. Reducing Condensation and Leak Repair
You bought a shed to protect your valuables, so what happens when you realize there’s a leak? Water damage alone can be a reason why you may think you need a new shed. But perhaps, all you really need is some caulk! It’s a quick way to close off an area where moisture can get in and cause problems. You can place calk along the siding, doors, and even around the windows of your shed. Use a clear caulk for an attractive finish. As far as leaky roofs go, also make sure the screws on your roof are fully tightened, too. Adding insulation boards are another great way of insulating your building and avoiding condensation, which can create problems in the future. There are also services that will put it all together for you.
