Yardmaster Sliding Door Apex Shed 6 x 5'
Yardmaster sliding door shed
Finished shed looks good, but maybe we got a bad kit! Instructions very very poor and totally minimum, a lot of fixing holes do not line up, some not even drilled. âInstructionsâ misleading in places. Sheet material so thin that self tapping screws barely hold panels together. Surplus 7mm holes in roof panels near apex let in rain and have to be sealed. Flimsy roof panels had to be drilled and screwed to fix to side frame as otherwise they flap about in the wind. This kit urgently needs checking and revision. Having said all this, the shed looks good and weâre hoping that the screws will not pull out in a strong wind!

Yardmaster Sliding Door Shed
Needed an inexpensive garden shed to store bikes and garden furniture.
It took myself (me, being female :-)) and my friend (male), 5 hours to put together and the result is great, prefer it to a wooden shed as it doesn't have that damp rotting wood smell. Ample for two bikes and garden funiture and some storage boxes. We love it x

Cheap - but not great quality!
I found NO washers in pack (these are a critical part and around 140 in total) and duplicate packs of other fittings. One panel had 4 holes not drilled. Obviously NOT checked before packing,
Why do they NOT use nuts & bolts rather than self-tapping screws with washers? Then you would not have to put rubber grommets on to protect yourself from the sharp protruding points.
Took around 6 hrs to build 2 persons. Instructions not the easiest.
Got a small refund for having to buy my own washers and drill own holes in panel.
Design is flawed and wind does drive rain up under ridge flashing.
Personally would stick to a wood shed from now on.

Apex Shed 6x5
I have two similar sheds already. Eminently suitable for purpose; easy to erect and easy to secure. The price is right too.
