Vinyl and plastic sheds.

Manufacturers claim that these sheds are stronger, lighter, more durable and more resistant to denting and chipping than wood, They do not rust, rot, mildew, or fade and are not susceptible to termite and wood-boring insect damage. They require little maintenance. Depending on the manufacturer, most models are also flame retardant.
Higher-quality sheds use UV-resistant plastic and powder-coated metal frames. Many plastic sheds are modular to allow for easy extensions, peg-boards, shelving, attic-storage, windows, skylights, and other accessories to be added later.
The sheds are much lighter than wood and to prevent wind damage, the shed should be attached to a concrete foundation with screws.
Warning. Do not store hot yard equipment, grills or other hot materials in shed.
