Rubbermaid offer a wide array of storage sheds, and while they can all certainly be used as storage for inside the home, they're definitely designed with the outside elements in mind. A Rubbermaid outdoor storage shed has a few distinct features over just any old brand of shed, ensuring that not only will it serve you well as a storage shed, but for a very long time.
In this article, we'll take a look at some of these features that will no doubt make you consider a Rubbermaid shed carefully, knowing that what you're buying has been designed with its purpose in mind. Here's some food for thought:
A Rubbermaid outdoor storage shed – and any model of Rubbermaid shed for that matter – is constructed from high-density polyethylene, making them resistant to scratches, chips, rust and peeling. You'll also notice how their shape will deflect rain water, offering now for pools of water to build up. On top of that, Rubbermaid have also considered large gases of wind. Most of the Rubbermaid storage sheds have holes in the back and base, where you can then screw them into the ground and whatever they're sitting in front of, such as a fence. Their defense against the natural elements has certainly been considered, would not you agree?
Following on from the above point, a Rubbermaid outdoor storage shed will also have a couple of design features that again, make them stand out from the crowd. First of all, some of them have a grid floor designed to keep long handled tools in place, which is probably the sort of item you're planning on storing in this type of shed. Secondly, they all have a latch so the shed can be locked. While nothing fundamental, this is perfect for ensuring the doors stay closed in windy weather and for keeping children and animals out. You've been surprised how many sheds of a similar design can not be locked!
As you'll be locating the shed outdoors, the chances are, it will be visible in your garden. Of course, you may be able to tuck it away out of sight, but the fact is, they're not that unsightly. This obviously comes down to personal opinion, but it's nice to know that the Rubbermaid sheds are somewhat attractive. Again, you can not say that about a lot of other brands of shed!
In conclusion, a Rubbermaid outdoor storage shed has clearly been designed and constructed with its purpose in mind. And although you'd like to think some of the elements are a pretty obvious feature to have, you'd be surprised how many other brands of shed appear not to be designed with their ultimate purpose in mind.
