How does a Shed Love portable building compare with other construction materials?
The most common alternatives to a wooden construction are: polystyrene sandwich panels, aluminium and steel (sometimes called a “caravan construction”) and shipping containers.
The 100% wooden construction of a Shed Love portable building compares favourably with all of these alternative structures.
- The wooden look fits with most New Zealand situations far better than these alternatives do.
- Cost-wise the wooden construction is on par or less-expensive than most the alternatives.
- The wooden construction makes your building more “useable”. For instance, nails can be hammered in the wall to hang pictures etc. Extra windows or modifications are relatively simple.
- Maintenance cost of a portable building is something many people don’t consider. ALL construction materials will require some maintenance. The most common is repainting – something that is quick and easy on an all-wooden construction.
