If you’re on your way to choosing the right shed for your backyard, you’ve probably asked this question yourself, “metal or wood shed?”
This can be a hard question to answer for any person because of the pros and cons that come with both.
With the current state of the world and our economy being so wacky, getting a shed that fits your budget is a must for any homeowner.
That is where our economy metal sheds come in. Our economy sheds are not only affordable but are also long-lasting, so you can get a product that won’t break the bank and will still be functional after years and years of use.
Let’s dive in and break down the economy shed so you can make the best decision for you and your backyard!
Prefab Metal Sheds vs Wooden Sheds
So the biggest question that most homeowners ask when they are looking for their own backyard storage shed is “wooden shed or metal shed?” Factors like cost, appearance, and practicality all play into your decision here, and it’s important to do the right research before you evaluate what your best options are.
To provide you with that, here are some of the pros and cons of our economy metal sheds.
Affordable Economy Sheds
One of the best arguments you can make for buying a metal shed is that they are more affordable than wooden sheds. That is the case for our economy shed. There is less material that goes into making a metal shed compared to a wooden shed which results in a better price. This does not mean that metal sheds are less dependable or lower quality. All it means is that the building process for metal sheds is simpler.
Low Maintenance Economy Sheds
Another important factor to consider when you’re looking for a shed is the level of maintenance that comes with them. Economy metal sheds require less maintenance because of the material that is used to make them. Wooden sheds require exterior finishing every so often and are more susceptible to rot and pests like termites.
The only maintenance that economy metal sheds require is rust protection. As long as you locate your metal shed on a high point to avoid water build-up and apply PVC/vinyl coating, you can avoid rust easily!
Durable Economy Sheds
Metal sheds actually have a longer lifecycle than wooden sheds because they don’t have to worry about any type of rot. The expected lifespan of our economy shed is 25+ years. This means that you are guaranteed to get a return on your investment.

Are Economy Metal Sheds Worth It?
On top of the things we’ve already discussed, our economy metal shed has many other advantages that make them a popular choice for storage, workshop, and even living space. They are durable, fire-resistant, and termite-proof, and they require little maintenance. Metal sheds are also wind-resistant and can withstand heavy snowfall.
In addition, they are available in a wide range of sizes and styles to suit any need. So yes, they are absolutely worth it because of the numerous benefits that come with them!
What Materials Are Economy Sheds Built With?
Economy sheds are the perfect option if you’re looking for a simple storage unit. These gorgeous structures add beauty to your backyard and increase the curb appeal of your property. But what are the materials used when building them? Compared to our deluxe metal sheds, the economy sheds come with regular wood framing compared to OSB wood framing that comes with our deluxe metal sheds.
Both models are built with high-quality steel siding that is guaranteed to last. Because of the wood-framing, it is easy to install hangers, shelves, etc…!
Economy vs Deluxe Sheds
Our economy sheds are industry-leading because of their affordable value and the type of metal we use in construction. The metal sheets we use in our economy shed construction are thicker than what you will typically find in metal shed buildings.
We offer 2 versions of every metal shed building as well. You can choose between the economy version of a metal shed building or op in for the deluxe model that comes with more “bells and whistles.”
When we build our economy sheds, we focus on providing storage space where you can store the most essential things like tools, supplies, and equipment. They also come with the structure’s base and include siding, flooring, roofing, windows, doors, and vent options.
They are a great option for the budget-conscientious homeowner and will go a long way for your storage problems. We stand behind our product so much that we actually offer a 40-year guarantee. Yes, you heard that right, a 40-year guarantee for all of our heavy-duty metal sheds.
The key difference between our economy and deluxe sheds is the OSB wood framing compared to the regular wood framing. Our deluxe metal sheds include everything that our economy sheds do but also come with a porch, ramp, skylight, shelving, workbench, shutters, and a flower box. You can also add additional customization options and accessories.
How Much Do Economy Metal Sheds Cost?
As we’ve discussed, our economy metal sheds are significantly more affordable than not only wooden sheds but also compared to competitors’ metal sheds. But what is an accurate price for them?
Well, our smallest economy shed model, the 8×10 Economy Cottage Shed, starts at $2903. Another shed we can look at is the regular Economy Shed which starts at $3065 for an 8×12 model. We also offer rent-to-own options for all of our customers. We want to help you solve your storage problems.
