The do-it-yourself metal storage shed kits are also easy to assemble. Steel sheds are very affordable, but over time they will rust, check if the manufacturer offers a warranty against rust. Aluminum sheds are less likely to corrode, but are more expensive than the steel sheds.

There are also concrete shed anchor kits and other fasteners like Simpson Strong-Ties available for anchoring your shed to a concrete floor or footings.
