Wood can be good, but...
Painting wood can be very time consuming - not only can it cost quite a bit of money, but it can also be rather annoying!
Although it can be treated beforehand, when wood gets damp and particularly when it stays damp, it can begin to rot after a few years.
Wood expands and contracts due to weather conditions and as a result doors can split and jam due to this expansion.
Good outdoor woods like teak and oak are expensive and although the silver-grey patina they develop is natural, it is not to everyones taste.
Painted or varnished surfaces must be repeatedly treated - if left, it can become unsightly.
Wood burns very easily, meaning the use of wood is not advisable in areas when fire is an issue.
And thus in conclusion although wood is a good material to use in many areas (especially living space and interiors) for sheds and storage units that have to withstand the elements outdoors, all year-round, metal is clearly the better choice!
