Rated 1 out of 5Â by Munday27 A cheap meccano but not cheap
Where to start with this product, firstly what a massive disappointment, it's shameful that a company as good as screwfix will endorse such an appalling product, I read the other reviews but unfortunately did not take the warnings seriously enough so I urge to read and not make the same mistake wasting a lot of money, pay the extra and get a wooden one.
1: as the other reviews stated, the instructions are appalling, the sad thing is if more time, effort was taken by yardmaster a much better set of instructions could be written, which in turn would drastically reduce the assembly time because that's where so much time is wasted in trying to work out the instructions, plus certain parts illustrated do not actually match the parts supplied which wastes more time and ends up being guess work.
2: the self tapping screws are next to useless, you put them in and round and round they go, very little bite to them, so like the other review I had to spend further money on a rivet gun and replace a lot of screws.
3. the roof leaks, as mentioned in other reviews, again the self tapping screws don't bite and water has dripped in all over my stuff.
4. The assembly as a whole is quite flimsy, even when you anchor it to the floor, the frame is so flimsy it twists and turns, the front floor panel when the doors slide together doesn't sit flush to the floor, the same for other base sections which means the 2nd morning I went into find it flooded as the rain fell and just ran under the gaps soaking floor standing items, there's no weight to it and you can't do nothing about it, I'm going to have to spend more money on some kind of sealant, screwfix do offer a weather block for garage doors, but at 29.99 for 2.5m and needing it all the way around I will be contacting screwfix for compensation on this matter.
5: Holes didn't line up, I had to re drill and open some up.
6: Where gloves! the majority of the edges are like razor blades.
7: I bought the Â£399 one over the Â£289 one because I thought I was getting a skylight, turns out it was two of the thin fibre glass panels one for each side, so a small bead of light through some cloudy fibre glass.
All in all I can't stress how disappointing this is, I put a lot of work into assembling it and throughout the whole process I wanted to knock it down and return it but told myself it would get better, but it really didn't and I wish I hadn't wasted all the time and money on something that is like a cheap meccano set, except it wasn't cheap and I urge anyone considering these sheds to run a mile, I wish I had!

I've always bought wood sheds but this time i bought a metal shed so no more roof felt.
It came well within the 14 working days i ordered it on March 23rd and was delivered on the 29th not bad for Easter weekend.
It's not too bad to put it together you just need to take your time and patience
it looks fantastic when it is finished. It is nice and big so and i have so much room now to put my table saw ect in it.
This shed is a tardis well worth the money

Simple form start to finish. Delivery was in 2 days and after that simple just continued. Instructions were straightforward and the product seems well made and built to last.
So much better than a wooden alternative and could not fault the service of delivery etc. Well done.

I agree with houseman, this is not for the faint hearted. A friend and I erected this leasurley over 2 days, it's a good 6 hour build for 2 peopleThe instructions are very poor, several time we had to back track taking bits off and refiting.Sometimes it seemed like the holes didn't line up, but with a little movement they did. The materials are quite giving and move enough to enable screws to locate without too much trouble
Yes it seems flimsy when going up but it also seems very strong once erected. My main gripe is that it's advertised as 10x6
ITS NOT 10x6
Either that or I've lost a foot somwhere !
But it's very nice once it's done and I am sure it will last for years. Would I tackle another build like this, no, I would avoid doing another one of these. And it's definatley a 2 man job.
