Vinyl storage building
[Return to Topics]

I'm thinking of buying a vinyl storage storage building for my lawn tractor and garden tools, and I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience, good or bad, with these type buildings.

Jim: I bought one of the Royal products about 5 years ago, 10X12 model - put it on a slab - has been great - no leaks, no cracks, no weathering. I just wash it down once a year with siding wash I use on the house. After owning one I would not consider wood or metal - have seen too many metal ones go down in winter, (I am outside of Schaumburg Illinois), and the exterior maintenance of wood ones I want to avoid. If your considering one, recommend go for the higher end quality product - you will be happier. (Picked ours up at Menards - slab, shed with extension, two windows totaled about 1200 complete.)

we have had one for two years they are made in isreal we bought a 10 x 10 and an extension for it of 4 feet that lies a problem the joint of the twois the weakest point about half way through the winter i noticed the roof developed a sag i proped it up inside with a 2x4 and it survived 164 inches of snow some of which were 30 in, the snow comes off very easy we will purchase another this year only without the extension they are available at sams or cosco

We had one given to us to test to see if it was any good. It is over 2 years old and has held up nice! Been thru a fire that came with in 20 ft or less and the chickens lived thru it inside. The flames were so big I left and trees near it wilted some. It shows no wear due to the sun and is very strong. I would take it over a tin one anyday. Snow dose not affect it and the doors are opened every day to feed the chickens so they have been opened and closed over 800 times and still work like they did when I put it together. Not sure who made this one, it did not have a name. Even keeps Herk out! Mark H.
