Any outdoor portable storage shed should be properly vented to provide improved air conditions inside the shed and prevent buildup of unwanted moisture, mold, and chemical fumes. The best vent for your storage shed will depend on how your shed is being used, what is being stored inside the shed, and your aesthetic preferences.

At Stateline Builders, every storage shed comes standard with two vents, one vent on each gable end. The standard gable vent is the most trouble-free option that allows for good airflow and ventilation for your everyday storage shed use.
If you plan to do any of the following, you might consider upgrading your storage shed ventilation:
If any of the above apply to you, then you may consider upgrading to a standard roof vent to improve the airflow of your storage shed. Standard roofs vents offer improved ventilation and are generally low maintenance. Some customers, however, may not prefer the standard roof vent for aesthetic reasons. If you desire to achieve the best ventilation with discrete aesthetics, then a ridge vent is a great choice for your storage shed.
For the most effective ventilation, a ridge vent is the best choice. However, it is important to note that during wind-driven rain, a ridge vent is most likely to leak that makes this vent style higher maintenance than a standard roof or gable vent.
Stateline Builders offers three great ventilation options for your storage shed needs. For most customers, the standard gable vents included in every storage shed are a suitable option.
