As the weather warms, and the sun shines warm, it’s time to trade the snowblower and shovels for the mower and weed eater. You can either stash everything in the corner of the garage or worse just leave it outside (please don’t do that).
What if you had a dedicated place to keep your valuable lawn care equipment out of the sun and elements, and in tip-top shape?
If you have a backyard of any size then a new outdoor storage shed is invaluable and will definitely be a great investment.
How a New Storage Shed Helps you Prepare for Summer!
There are lots of ways a storage shed can improve your summer and help you keep your life organized as we prepare for the warmth of summer. Here are 3 benefits to adding a shed to your summer prep!
1. Much Needed Extra Storage Space:
One of the most helpful parts of putting a new storage shed in your backyard is the extra storage space it provides. As summer rolls around, and you start to clean out the other corners of your home and property, there are always things that you want to keep but don’t know where to store until you need them again, like Christmas lights and decorations, your kid’s toys, sleds, etc.
2. Protect your equipment from the elements:
If you have any amount of grass to mow, then you’ll need a decent-sized mower, and with an investment like that, you really can’t afford to let it sit outside throughout the summer, exposed to beating sun and pounding rain. Your new storage shed can solve the problem without crowding your garage with all those extra pieces of equipment.
Another huge benefit of having your own shed in your backyard is that you’ll be able to find the things you need when you need them. Because we all know that having a tool is only good if you can find it when you need it. So when investing in a new storage shed, it’s a great idea to think about what interior options you’d like to add. Do you need a workbench to keep your tools organized and a place to work? Or maybe you could add a pegboard wall to give all your yard and garden tools a home.
How to Keep Your New Storage Shed Cool in the Heat
One of the knocks against storage sheds is the lack of climate control, especially in the heat of the summer. But thankfully for us, there are a few simple steps you can take to help with that excess temperature.
Increasing ventilation in your shed will improve the airflow and in effect, lower the temperature in your shed. Adding additional vents on the roof or gable wall will allow some natural ventilation. But if you need more airflow, you have several options. If you have electricity run to your shed, then adding an electric exhaust fan to your gable end wall will greatly improve the ventilation of your shed. If electricity isn’t available, then just simply opening the garage door a little bit, or propping open your entry door are simple, practical ways to increase ventilation.
Another easy and practical way to improve your shed’s ability to withstand the summer heat is to insulate your shed. While insulation doesn’t guarantee a cool shed, it definitely helps a lot. And the better you insulate the better the results will be. You can find insulation at any hardware store, or local box store. Adding additional weatherstripping around the doors and windows will also increase the insulation factor.
