If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring garden storage out of the 6 with comparable specifications the following might be of interest.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £1 with this Outsunny 9 X 6FT Outdoor Storage Garden Shed Sliding Door Galvanised Metal Khaki. It is priced at £475, this is 6% more than this and has an Expert Score of 90, 0 points equal than the Outsunny 9 X 6FT Outdoor Storage Garden Shed Sliding Door Galvanised Metal Grey.

Highest Expert Score – With an Expert Score of 92 vs 90 for this product, the 5’1 x 10’11 Asgard Flexistore 1533 Metal Shed is the best 9′ x 6′ garden storage with comparable specifications, and is priced at £1,019, that’s £569 more than the Outsunny 9 X 6FT Outdoor Storage Garden Shed Sliding Door Galvanised Metal Grey.

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 garden storage that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 garden storage that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 2 other options that will fill those needs.

1. Galvanised: Galvanising steel or Zinc Galvanised steel as it is sometimes called refers to the process where steel is immersed into molten zinc. This is where a series of zinc-iron alloy forms a series layers via a metallurgical reaction between the iron and zinc, providing a robust coating which is an integral part of the steel.

Galvanised steel is among the most corrosion resistant due to its sacrificial protection and self-repairing properties. According to the Galvanizers Association they say “Hot dip galvanising offers coverage both externally and internally within hollow sections, it self-repairs when damaged, sacrifices itself to protect the base metal, is environmentally sustainable, has good impact and abrasion-resistance and a maintenance-free life of 50 years or more. Galvanised steel is widely used in applications where corrosion protection is needed and can be identified by the crystallised pattern on the surface (often called a ‘spangle’).” 

2. Steel: Is the “world’s most important engineering and construction material” according to the World Steel Accosiation. When it comes to garden structure steel is often a very strong and durable metal, although if it is untreated then it is prone to rust and corrosion. Steel is an alloy of iron mixed with less than 2% carbon and 1% manganese and small amounts of silicon, phosphorus, sulphur and oxygen. When steel comes into contact with water and oxygen there is a chemical reaction and the steel begins to revert to its original form – iron oxide (that’s Rust to the layperson). Steel must be coated in a protective layer to stop this reaction, for most garden applications this consists of powder coating or the more stable and long lasting use of galvanising the steel first.
