One thing I would be worried about as a potential renter, from the description you provided, would be how secure my stuff would be. That is, I'm thinking that metal siding would be pretty easy to pull away and gain access to the stuff inside...??? Maybe that's why your competitors built with concrete blocks?

You would think so, but not really.

Give me 20lb sledge and I can be through a fortified block in about 30 seconds. It would take longer than that to poke or cut metal with tin snips.

My grandad used to say that locks only keep out the honest thieves, and it's my opinion that this is the case here.

I just dont see justified increase in material costs for so little benefit.
