Signs You Need to Replace Your Shed

From garden tools to other items, garden sheds store it all with ease. However, our sheds are usually ignored by us unless we need to store something in them. As a result, they suffer damage and reach a point where they need replacement.

However, it can get tough to decide whether a shed needs replacement or repairs. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of signs that indicate your shed needs a replacement.

Your Shed is Rotting

Although treated timber is used for constructing sheds, exposure to extreme weather conditions such as UV light, rain, etc., can cause it to rot. Unfortunately, such damage is hard to spot as it’s unnoticeable. As a result, this rotting worsens over time, leading to mold growth, which can be hazardous for health too.

Moreover, exposure to rotten wood can lead to skin rashes, eye irritation, etc. So if your shed is noticeably rotting, it’s time to replace it before it leads to more damage.

Your Shed Has Warped Floors

If your shed isn’t raised off the ground and sits directly on the grass or soil, there’s a high chance the shed’s floor will soak up the moisture from the ground, and the wood will start warping. The baseboards will be stretched, leading to weak spots in the shed’s framework. If your shed’s floors are out of shape, it’s best to replace them.

Your Shed’s Felt is Damaged
