What Makes Lifetime Storage Sheds Better
The new plastic shed kits from Lifetime surpass all the other outdoor storage sheds on the market! Through extensive research, Lifetime discovered that all the outdoor storage sheds on the market have a few great features, but also significant weaknesses. We've eliminated the weaknesses and combined the best features into one complete product to make the best shed on the market--the Lifetime Plastic Shed. At Lifetime, we stand behind the belief that plastic sheds do not need to be flimsy! We combine the strength of steel and the durability of polyethylene to create our truly unique outdoor sheds. Lifetime plastic storage sheds use integrated steel supports to provide ultimate durability. We use high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic to make our storage sheds stronger, lighter, and more durable than wooden sheds. These materials are stain resistant, UV protected, and powder-coated to prevent rusting, cracking, and discoloration.
Outdoor Storage Sheds Construction
The high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic we use in our Lifetime Sheds has some big advantages over wooden, metal, or vinyl sheds
- HDPE plastic is maintenance free, strong, durable, and generally the best value for your money
- Wood requires significant maintenance, is expensive, and susceptible to termites and rotting
- Metal is less expensive, but requires costly repairs, is less durable, and susceptible to rusting and denting--a temporary storage solution
- Vinyl is maintenance free, more affordable than wood and more durable than metal, but lacks the strength of HDPE plastic
Outdoor Sheds Appearance
With Lifetime plastic outdoor sheds, you don't have to give up style to be practical. Our plastic storage sheds are designed to be attractive as well as functional. We incorporate steel and molded polyethylene into wood-grain textured wall panels and simulated shingles that come in attractive natural colors with contrasting shutters, doors, and trim. Best of all, our plastic sheds will always look attractive. No painting required, and so easy to clean--just spray it down with a hose!
Plastic Sheds Functionality
Lifetime plastic sheds feature shatter-proof windows and skylights to provide ample amounts of natural light as well as a battery-powered light. Screened vents provide ventilation while keeping pests and rodents out. The high-pitched roof allows for plenty of headroom, and wide doorway allows easy access when parking a riding lawnmower or storing large patio furniture.
Outdoor Storage Shed Security
Outdoor Storage Sheds by Lifetime use steel-reinforced doors with full-length steel-pin hinges and double deadbolts on the interior as well as a padlock loop on the exterior of the storage shed. The windows are shatter-proof, high-impact plastic. You can feel confident that your valuable items are safe and protected while in storage.
Outdoor Sheds Customization
Lifetime's outdoor sheds come with a range of accessories that can be customized to fit your needs. Our plastic shed kits are available in a variety of sizes that make them perfect for whatever you need to store. If you can't find the size of shed you need, you can use our shed expansion kits to customize the shed to the exact size that you desire. Additional steel-reinforced shelves, corner shelves, and peg strips, also maximize your storage space. Battery-powered lighting can be added in any of the pre-drilled holes, without requiring wiring or outlets.
Outdoor Storage Shed Assembly
With an assistant and a few basic tools, you can assemble your Lifetime shed in one weekend. We strongly recommend that you use a low-powered screwdriver or a drill with an adjustable clutch to speed up the assembly process. All parts are securely screwed together every step of the way to form a sturdy, stable, weather-proof structure. All necessary hardware is included in the shed kit along with a step-by-step, illustrated instruction booklet.
Which Lifetime Outdoor Shed is Right for Me?
At Lifetime, we are certain that we have the perfect outdoor plastic shed to meet your needs, whether you have the option of a large corner in your backyard or just want to utilize a small space in your driveway. In addition to the amount of space you have available, consider how you will be using your outdoor shed. For general storage, our plastic sheds come in a variety of sizes. We recommend evaluating your current spatial needs and increasing it by 25% to accommodate future storage needs.
For oversized items that need to be stored, such as vehicles and patio furniture, our larger outdoor sheds are ideal. We offer various shelving kits to help you get organized and shed expansion kits if you need even more room! Take a look at these:

Note: Before you build, consult your city ordinances and building codes to see if you need a building permit before constructing your shed. Then you will need to prepare a level surface or the shed will not assemble properly. We recommend a cement foundation, compacted road base, or a pad created with compacted pea gravel.
