Now you have your new storage building, workshop, shed or metal building, security is an important issue to consider. Sometimes home insurance will not cover equipment stored in a garden shed, as most locks are easily broken or removed by thieves. It is wise not to store good quality tools or expensive equipment in the shed if there is easy access to it.

Consider the security of your neighborhood when deciding what to put into your outside building. If you live in a high crime area, you may want to have stronger locks, and either no windows, small windows, or windows placed where thieves cannot use for access to your belongings. You may also consider lighting the area of the yard where the shed is located.

BAS Buildings uses T-Lock & keys as standard for sheds, and also offer steel doors, or metal doors, roll up doors with padlocs, residential doors with deadbolt locks for more shed security. We also can install decorative octagonal or transom windows to give light while offering no access to thieves. Transom windows can be place on the wall, above doors and in the doors of storage sheds.

If building metal  RV Carport or Boat Cover, consider a utility style to store your camping or sporting equipment in a secured shed built in as part of the carport.

Make sure you itemize the contents of your backyard building and contact your home insurance agency to verify that your storage buildings and belongings are covered under your policy.
