Money matters. Sure, the economy is doing well, but that’s no reason to throw your money away. How can you decide on the best shed for the money? We’re here to help.

With the advance of the Internet, choices these days are limitless. Amazon and eBay, not to mention individual sellers of products online; choices abound. You can definitely save in the short term by simply clicking on the least expensive shed you can find for the money. But how wise is that? Here are a few things to consider when shopping for the best portable shed for the money.

1. Cost
Which is the Best Shed for the Money…is it the cheapest one? The most expensive?

when you compare Kauffman structures with others you'll know which is the best shed for the money

If the best storage building for the money would always be the cheapest one, your choice would be simple. Do a bit of research, pull out your wallet, and you’re good to go? Hardly! Since when is real life that simple? You know better. Many things enter into a decision like this.

We’ve all seen the signs… “Priced to Sell!” Have you ever thought through the logic behind that phrase? To me that’s akin to shouting, “I’m desperate to get rid of this!”, or “Just because it’s cheap you should buy it!”

Here at Kauffman Structures, we believe in pricing our storage sheds fairly. They may not be the cheapest on the market but buy a shed from us, and we guarantee it is a quality shed; truly the best backyard shed for the money. That brings us to our next point.

2. Quality
What does Quality have to do with the Best Storage Building for the Money?

quality control is a bit part of getting the best shed for the money

We don’t mean to be critical of all the other sheds on the market, but we don’t have control over their product. On the other hand, we know what we sell. We believe that every garden shed that leaves our lot says something about us.

Some of our attention to detail may come as a surprise to you but to us are an integral part of the way we do business. Here are just a few points (think of them as commitments) of quality control for us.


The Best Shed for the Money means:

  • No exposed fasteners.

We believe the fasteners holding your shed should do their work behind the scenes.

  • No nails coming through where they shouldn’t.

Is this attention to detail necessary? We think so!

  • No sunlight should be seen through a door gasket.

When building a shed one may say, “After all, we’re not building cabinets.” True, but we’re of the persuasion that when we construct anything worthwhile, be it cabinets or sheds, age-old wisdom should still apply: “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.”

What do these building standards mean for you? Consider just the difference in cheap siding versus the highest-grade possible siding that we use here at Kauffman’s. The long-term difference is astounding!

All of this adds up to our way of assisting you in getting the best outdoor storage shed for the money. For more information about how we build sheds, check out our building standards page:
