Once of the most important features for a garden shed is the durability. Garden sheds are known to be exposed to weather of all types.

This is an all natural 100% green product so you need to stain it. Staining protects from sun, water and bugs. All wood needs to be restained every 5 -10 years. You might think that the other sheds from steal and plastic do not require maintenance, but this is not true. Steel sheds are easy dented and can rust. Plastic sheds are change color over time because of the sun. Plywood sheds needs to be stained or painted like a natural wood sheds.
The great thing about Northern Pine is that it is growing in northern regions, and every year has a winter periods. This means that the tree isn’t growing that fast, the slower the tree grows the more durable it is. The lumber from Northern Pine is very strong, durable and able to withstand all weather types which include snow, wind, rain and heat. Knowing that Northern Pine has these features encourages you to select this type when choosing a long lasting garden shed with the most beautiful wood textures.

Another good quality about Northern Pine wood is the fact that it is easily adaptable and designed. This particular wood can easily support paint and stain. Because these sheds have the features to be painted or stained, you automatically know that you are able to design a garden shed to your particular wants and needs. The nature of the wood ensures that any paint or varnish used lasts for a life time. That makes these sheds a worthwhile investment, which increases your property value.
