Lifetime Storage Sheds, A Review
So, What Makes Lifetime Storage Sheds Better Than The Rest?
The new plastic shed kits from Lifetime surpass all the other outdoor storage sheds on the market! That’s quite a claim! Through extensive research, Lifetime discovered that all the outdoor storage sheds on the market have a few great features, but also a number of significant weaknesses. Lifetime eliminated those weaknesses and combined their best features into one complete product to make the best shed on the market.
In short we use integrated steel supports to provide ultimate durability and high-density polyethylene plastic to make our storage sheds far stronger, lighter, and more durable than wooden sheds. Better still their sheds are stain resistant, UV protected, and powder-coated to prevent rusting, cracking, and discoloration.
This means that Lifetime sheds are great VFM and enjoy powerful advantages over wooden and metal sheds
- Wood requires significant maintenance, is expensive, and susceptible to damage, wood worm and rotting; and
- Metal is less expensive, but requires costly repairs, is less durable, and above is highly susceptible to rusting and denting.
Outdoor Sheds Appearance
Lifetime plastic outdoor sheds are designed to be attractive as well as functional. They incorporate the steel and moulded polyethylene into a wood-grain textured that give the wall panels an attractive look; especially given the contrasting colour shutters, doors and trim. Best of all no painting is required, and they are easy to clean; just spray them down with a hose!
Plastic Sheds Functionality and Security
Lifetime plastic sheds feature shatter-proof windows and skylights to provide ample natural light. Screened vents provide ventilation while keeping pests and rodents out. The high-pitched roof allows for good headroom, and the wide doorway allows easy access when parking a ride on lawnmower or storing patio furniture.
Lifetime sheds 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 shed. As a result you can safely feel confident that your valuable items are safe and protected while in storage.
Outdoor Storage Shed Assembly
With an assistant and a few basic tools, you can assemble a Lifetime shed in one weekend. Lifetime 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.

Materials Used in Lifetime Sheds
Lifetime manufacture plastic sheds constructed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This is Lifetime’s material of choice because HDPE is known for its strength, durability, and resistance to chemicals and moisture. It is what makes Lifetime’s garden sheds lightweight, while maintaining superior strength and durability. Lifetime’s sheds are UV-protected, resistant to extreme heat and cold, and will not fade or crack. They are stain resistant, easy to clean, and low maintenance.
UV-Inhibitors are a very important component of Lifetime’s garden sheds. The high-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) grade plastic that includes premiere UV-Inhibitors and light fast pigments to make these sheds very resistant to heat and extended exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun. This UV protection is the best on the market and ensures that our products will not crack, chip, or peel.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is one of the most environmentally preferred plastics because it is 100% recyclable, does not create harmful emissions during production and does not leak toxic chemicals into soil or water.
Powder Coated Steel
Lifetime’s rust-resistant, powder-coated finish makes these plastic sheds resistant to chips, scratches, and regular wear-and-tear. Powder-coating prevents rusting, corrosion and protects steel parts from UV-damage, making it a great all-weather finish.
