Set up and maintenance
Once purchased you need to know how to keep your storage solutions looking fresher for longer!
Here’s some helpful tips to improve the longevity of your wheelie bin shed. Our timber has undergone treatment with pressure treated with chemical Tanalith E. Although this doesn’t mean its maintenance free! This chemical prevents rotting, but it may require regular up keep throughout the years. This can include coats of wood stain or paint colour maintenance as the sun fades it.
We strongly suggest all storage to be built on a level, which can anchor to a solid base. If you build straight on the ground, this may be more susceptible to rot and decay. This would impact the lifespan of the product. Moreover, if the base is not level, this could affect the structure and cause pulls at the corners. Causing structural problems, such as stopping the doors from opening. As our wheelie bins are free standing units, you can anchor these units to the floor.
Is Outdoor bin Storage worthwhile?
In conclusion, Outdoor wheelie bin storage is a worthwhile investment for your property, with many amazing benefits to improve and help with recycling chores. In addition, due to the high quality materials used, with regular maintenance it can provide years of use!
