The answers you provide for these questions will go a long way in helping you determine which type of garage shelves are best suited for your storage needs. To expand on the examples further, if you have heavy items, you will most likely prefer to use metal shelving units as they tend to be a little more sturdy than their plastic counterparts. This, of course, is not to say that the plastic shelves are weak, but for heavy items it is bet to go with the most industrial strength products you can find, otherwise you might find yourself cleaning up a mess of collapsed boxes later down the line. So, by taking stock in what you want to store, you will be able to make the best choice where your garage shelving needs are concerned.
There is just no limit to the accessories you can buy, and many of these are priced well below ten dollars. This is one of the biggest advantages of using pegboards to organize you garage. You just need to secure them to the studs in your wall, and have a little bit of space between the wall and the board to allow the hook part to extend to the backside of the board.
One of the options that is available for this area of the home comes in the form of garage storage systems. These come in almost every shape and size that you can possibly imagine, from shelving units that are going to line the walls of the garage, down to some rather unique items that will hang bicycles, fishing rods, or other relatively unused items from the ceiling. Once you begin to look at the systems that are available for storage in the garage, you will likely be surprised with everything that is available to you.
On the other hand, hard plastic garage storage cabinets are easy to install, more durable and economical. Once you have proper storage space for tools, you no longer have to hunt for things as they would be stored in the right places. Wrenches, screwdrivers and paint brushes can be stored in shallow compartmentalized drawers or on pegboard hooks instead of large deep drawers as they might get lost there. Tools that are used often can be hung on pegs and stored that way as it saves the hassle of opening the drawers over and over again.
For many people, the most common type of garage shelves that are chosen are the simple, yet durable, shelving units that you have to put together yourself. These can either be made out of plastic or metal and regardless of which type of material you use, they each have their benefits and drawbacks. Therefore, prior to considering one type of garage shelving over the other, it is in your best interest to do a bit of homework in order to determine which shelving units will be the best for you. This homework would involve taking a brief inventory of what types of items you plan on housing on the storage units — for instance, are they heavy, large objects or are they over-sized and awkward, or are do you just have a bunch of random boxes that need to find a home?
Quality: You can get custom storage systems on just about any budget. It all depends on the materials and the size of the overall system. It is not a quick process, and it can take several days for the manufacturer to complete and install each piece. Despite the fact that you may have to wait, what you get in return is quality you cannot find in a big box store. Some establishments market these systems as garage cabinets. However, it is better to use these materials in home closets. The design is not for the daily climates found in most garages. They easily wear out, and replacement is necessary within just a few months to a few years. Storage systems designed for your space use tougher material and seal it with a powder coat that makes it resistant to UV light, dents, scratches, and stains. The design lasts for years, even when you use it daily.
Common faults with fibre board panels were the fixtures often popped off when you removed tools, an annoying habit that is remedied today with metal wall panels that require a special movement to unfix a fixture, ensuring the fixtures stay put when you remove a tool. A metal striped pegboard panel will not be damaged by moisture or water damage and will not warp under extreme temperature and physical conditions. A metal striped pegboard panel will not chip or sag from the weight of the tools it supports, there is also the danger of the fine fibre particles themselves from the pegboard which can enter the lungs and cause much damage to your health.
