Yardmaster Sliding Door Apex Shed 10 x 8 x 8' (Nominal)
A very poor shed
I would not recommend anyone buy this shed. Not only could I not get any tradesperson to touch it in terms of assembly (all said very bad experiences with them), but it suffers from such severe condensation that it sometimes is "Raining" inside it !
It also leaks through the roof as the roof panels draw in water between them by capillary action(there is no seal between them). I used four tubes of silicon trying to waterproof it where it joins the base, but there is a design flaw in the door assembly - it collects water and feeds it inside. Padlock point is plastic - so not worth using. Totally unfit for purpose.

Worst product ever purchased
Yardmaster metal shed, looked sturdy thought would be pretty easy to put together, but some panels where scratched, pre-drilled holes did not match up when putting together. Instructions poor. Would NOT recommend to anybody. I am a builder and still struggled to put together.

Look good and seems sturdy
The shed arrived flat packed obviously and did seem daunting at first...however I set about putting a slab base down and began systematically assembling the shed following the directions to the letter.After 3 days the shed was built by me alone in the great British weather .
I found the assembly tyricky at times but then again I am a plumber not shed specialist.
I wouldn't suggest attempting this project without a good DIY knowledge as a minimum as it requires patience and a bit of skill....saying that everybody has commented how smart it looks and I am very happy with it.

Yardmaster steel shed
This shed is flimsy & arrived poorly packed & tatty condition. Some of the screw holes were over sized, In my opinion some were caused by rags on the tooling, & others by having had screws in them previously. This leads me to believe that this shed had been returned from another customer. Yardmaster deny this. I am still waiting for the 2 pots of touch up paint they were supplying, which has supposedly been sent out on two occasions. I would have returned it, but I took advantage of a weather window, & laid the base down, before properly inspecting the whole pack. By the time you add on the cost of the mastic etc. for sealing the unit & the timber & insulation materials, a very good timber shed could have been supplied & erected for less.
