Good value, needs reinforcing
on 4 April 2012
I think this shed is good value, looking at what's available elsewhere. I live in a very exposed and windy location by the sea in E. Scotland, and felt that for this location the shed did need some extra reinforcement. The floor looked rather flimsy, composed of rough chipboard with four parallel struts, so I reinforced mine with a network of three extra parallel struts and several cross struts, in order to give the floor more solid support. I also put extra screws in the joins between the side panels, side panels and floor, and side panels and roof panels. I also added extra struts to each of the two roof panels, which are composed of MDF. I also added an extra strut at the apex of the two roof panels. The latch to the doors was fine for me, but if a burglar-proof latch was required a more sturdy one would be needed. Since putting the shed up we have experienced heavy rain and storms, and the shed has remained watertight. I put the shed up by myself in a day, including the extra work I put into it.
I give the shed 3* because of the extra reinforcing I felt it needed for our location, but despite this I think this shed is still good value for money.
