Metal Gusset vs Plywood Gusset

605 Sheds is known for its premium flooring and large notched skids that create the perfect base for your shed.  We always tell an interested customer to look at the base when buying a shed and you’ll see why our sheds are build the best. However, today we want to explain why looking up is also important. There are a few things you will see, such as ceiling rafters, OSB, and gusset plates. This article will focus on a gusset plate and why we choose our design vs. the others available.  

A gusset plate is a plate for connecting beams and columns and is used to strengthen the joint. This is especially important in the Midwest as snow can make for an extra heavy roof.  That is why we choose metal gussets that are machine pressed into all of our joints.  Our gussets are industry leading in the weight it can support. We also strategically place our gussets in a way that provides the most possible support for the roof.  Compare this to plywood or OSB gussets that are glued on, and one can easily understand that
