Steel Shed vs Concrete Shed

Concrete Building
Steel Shed
Durability:

Wont rust, dent or scratch

Prone to denting and scratching and if  not cold rolled steel it will rust

Wall thickness:

75mm of vibrated concrete with high tensile steel reinforcing bars

at best less than ¾ of 1mm (.7mm)

Robustness:

A standard concrete building 5 x 3m will weight 3,500 kg

A steel building weight will vary greatly ( 300 – 550 kg )

Aesthetics:

Can look just like a block built building without the inconvenience of months of various trades cluttering up your garden

Can end up looking like a commercial shed in your garden
