Let's Take a Closer Look...

8’ x 5’ Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed – Our first impressions

The Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed is a high quality, attractive storage unit with plenty of useful features, including a wide array of shelves and storage hooks, to help keep tools and equipment safe.

The main structure is constructed using high-density polyethylene plastic with steel reinforcements. Not only is the unit weather resistant and UV resistant, but it is also stain-resistant too – including the non-slip floor – thus helping it to maintain its impressive appearance throughout its lifetime. Above the attractive arched double doors, which are great for easy access, this storage shed also has a small ventilation panel.

The shed requires no maintenance, making it ideal for those wanting a simple storage solution that takes care of itself. With UV resistance, the colour will not fade or peel, and the polyethylene plastic is completely weather resistant and durable to life in the garden, meaning that is will be a useful storage solution for many years to come.

8’ x 5’ Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed: Questions you may have

8' x 5' Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed Wall and Air VentThis outdoor storage shed is a fantastic example of how a simple garden shed can be customised to your particular storage requirements. Whether you are storing just the essential equipment or are planning on organising your tools, this shed would allow you to do this your way. In this section we have a look at the many different options available, as well as the other features that this super shed has to offer.

Exterior: The storage shed is constructed from high-density polyethylene plastic, supported by a steel frame. Low maintenance, the shed will not fade, peel, rot or rust and is fully weather resistant and waterproof. The grey/brown tones of the exterior give the shed a smart appearance but bear in mind that it will not blend into its natural surroundings as well as a timber or more natural coloured shed.

Interior: The 8’ x 5’ storage shed is medium-sized and suitable for the average household’s outdoor and garden equipment. The shed’s interior walls are customisable to suit your particular storage needs; hooks, standard shelving and corner shelving are available as optional extras. The floor space is then freed up for larger items such as lawnmowers, bikes or garden toys.

Doors: The double doors provide easy access to the shed interior and once opened give a full overview of the sheds contents, making individual items easy to locate. Measuring at 1.42m, the double doorway allows easy storage for items large and small.

Security: The double doors are lockable with a simple padlock to keep the interior contents secure whilst not in use. A padlock can be purchase separately at a modest price.

8’ x 5’ Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed: How easy to build?

8' x 5' Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed Overall AppearanceIt is recommended that two people assemble this plastic shed due to the size of the parts and for safety reasons. We expect that the shed could be assembled within a day for those with basic DIY knowledge and experience. The product will arrive directly to your door in flat-packed form and everything you will require for easy assembly will be provided; panels, fixtures and fittings. A basic set of tools will be needed for assembly. Step-by-step instructions are provided with easy-to-follow diagrams to keep you on the right track.

8’ x 5’ Lifetime Plastic Outdoor Storage Shed: What is the overall quality like?

Constructed from high-density polyethylene plastic, along with a steel reinforced frame, this super sturdy building will stand the test of time. It must be built on a solid wood or concrete foundation; alternatively a base may be purchased separately to give it the solid foundation it requires. The shed exterior is UV resistant, weather and water resistant, and is maintenance free, meaning that it will not rot, rust, fade, peel or crack. The inside is taken care of too with air vents allowing air to circulate freely throughout the shed interior, preventing mould, damp and rust. This product carries a 10-year anti-rust guarantee from the manufacturer if it is kept well-maintained throughout the years. It will no doubt look as good in 10 years as it does the day it is assembled, maintaining its smart appearance throughout its lifetime.
