Custom Vs Prefab Sheds – Which Should You Choose?

If you’re looking for a shed, it’s natural you want to find one that suits your needs, offers value for money, and aligns with your budget. There are many prefab and custom sheds to choose from, so how do you know which option is right for you? To help, we’ve put together this handy guide with all you need to know about the options at hand.

Prefab Sheds

Prefab sheds, or stock sheds, are pre-manufactured and delivered to your site for easy installation. There are some great benefits of going with a prefab shed. For starters, they’re usually less expensive than a custom shed, and small garden sheds can be purchased for even as little as a couple of hundred dollars. Larger sheds, of course, will be more expensive. Most people who go with a prefab shed tend to use them to store items or garden equipment.

If you do want a larger shed, you might find your options are more limited if you choose a prefabricated product. Some prefab sheds also come with untreated joints and wood flooring, which will inevitably deteriorate over time. It’s therefore crucial you know exactly what you’re getting when you purchase a prefab shed.

Custom Sheds

The greatest benefit of a custom shed is the fact it’s made to your unique needs and specifications. You’ll know your shed is built just for you and designed to accommodate your requirements and preferences. Custom sheds can often last in excess of 25 years, and as you’ll engage a builder directly you know your manufacturer won’t cut corners when it comes to construction. While it might come at an extra cost, a custom-built shed can be manufactured on-site, limiting any accessibility issues or landscape limitations.

The biggest disadvantage of a custom shed is probably the cost. You’ll need to take into account the specific design, manufacture and installation of your custom build, and you might end up paying more if you have particular requirements. While the cost of a custom shed is higher than if you go with a prefab structure, the pros tend to outweigh the cons.

Which Should I Choose?

Ultimately, your choice of shed is up to you – it does depend on what you want, what you need, how much you’re willing to pay, and what you’ll be using your shed for. With that being said, there’s really nothing that beats a custom-built shed.
