How LINC Systems Helps Shed Building Industry Meet Market Demands

Date of post: February 21, 2024By: LINC Systems

Home and commercial property costs have soared to new heights over the last several years. These rising costs and increased relocation of owners and renters has led them to rethink their living and work areas and look for options that maximize space and value.  


Commercial facilities are looking for ways to optimize production floor space. Active lifestyles and increased desire for luxury items have homeowners looking for extra space to store items such as bikes, boats, RVs and lawn equipment.  

The solution? Outdoor storage sheds.  

Outdoor storage sheds are ideal for decluttering living quarters, storing bulky equipment and inventory, and getting the most out of available square footage at the lowest cost to the buyer.  

As a result, this trend shows signs of increased growth.  

According to building materials provider Silvaris, the global outdoor shed market is expected to grow from $6.5 million in 2021 to $9.6 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during this time.  

Shed builders have been busy designing and assembling creative storage solutions including: 

  • Storage Sheds
  • Cabin Sheds
  • Dog Kennels
  • Gazebos
  • Greenhouses
  • Playhouses
  • Pole Barns
  • Horse Barns
  • Garden Storage

To meet the needs of this growing market, shed builders need a partner to help them meet growing production quotas with a knowledgeable and reliable service team and supplier of quality products and services, like LINC Systems.  

How Shed Builders Can Overcome Volatility of Lumber Supply  

It’s not just increased demand that is impacting how shed builders go to market.  

Lumber prices have been up and down over the past several years. But recent reductions in North American inventory and right-sized production could lead to a spike in lumber prices during the height of building season, according to Markets Insider.  

This, coupled with increased demand for composites and plastics, has shed builders requiring diversity in their fastener and tooling supply. Shed builders need access to durable, high-quality fasteners and tooling to get the job done right, the first time. That’s a non-negotiable.  

LINC Systems delivers that, but more importantly, we back our products with knowledgeable and proactive maintenance and customer service. Our team helps shed builders meet growing demand with quality products, expert service and a trusted partnership that goes the distance.  

Here’s how:
