For many home improvement stores, shed retailers, and shed manufacturers, the end of their peak shed buying season is when they're willing to offer discounts or clearance prices. Doing this helps them to get in as many sales as possible before the year closes. It may not be the best time to have a shed delivered, but it could be the best time to purchase one.
One of the advantages of a plastic shed is that it can be more easily moved from one place to the other. Many plastic sheds are shipped as a kit that is assembled on-site, so if your location is extremely difficult to access a plastic shed may be your only option. .
Having a kit put together by a professional has the lowest labor costs. If a carpenter or builder constructs a new custom shed from plans, your labor costs will be considerably higher.
There are additional costs that go into building a shed. If your shed is more than 100 square feet, you will need a permit to build it, which has costs starting at $100. If you intend to work from plans rather than contracting with a shed building company, you need to purchase those as well. Shed plans cost $100 to $1,000, depending on where you purchase them and the plan’s complexity.

While plastic sheds are designed to offer plenty of protection against rain, ice, and snow, they do suffer from poor wind protection.

If you really don’t want to prime and don’t like the pre-primed colors in the spray section, then first test out a hidden area with just your acrylic paint. If the shed has a rough texture (like the Duotech sheds), you may be all right.
It’s awesome that a storage shed can add value to your home. My brother would like to sell his home in the coming year, and he wants to make sure that it’s worth as much as possible. I’ll share this information with him so that he can look into his options for getting a shed to help with this. Should You Choose a Shed Kit Vs a Custom-Built Shed from a Manufacturer?
Plastics is a catch-all term for a lot of materials. Generally, plastic is something that can be molded or shaped by heat and pressure. Here’s the Encyclopedia Britannica discussion of plastics. Check out the handy chart showing the different types, based on chemistry.
As for the legality, it’s a good point. Sheds aren’t subject to building codes in most places, which is why they can get away with this stuff.
My main complaint is that it took forever to be scheduled for construction - like 2-3 months. Once it got here, the guy put it up in about 6 hours. The shed itself seems solid but the walls are pretty thin. Overall it's good quality, though - worth paying the extra money for a solid, good looking wood shed versus the ugly metal ones at Lowe's. On a side note, if you're going to build your own foundation, don't trust the specs they send you - my installer put the 4x4s on in the opposite direction that the specs said. They will just lay the 4x4s on the ground so if you want something different, you can make a cement foundation or set up the posts like I did (cement blocks with wooden blocks on top).
