Grandpa's new shed.

  • Quality: Three Stars
  • Delivery: Five Stars
  • Price: Five Stars

The shed was delivered very promptly within 4 days of ordering. Initially everything seemed flimsy, but by following the clear instructions,the method of the construction gives it strength, and on completion it is fairly rigid and certainly fit for the purpose for which it was designed. The manufacturer has been very generous with fixtures and fittings, and by drilling extra holes top and bottom of vertical panel edges these can be bolted to give extra strength and rigidity, although not strictly necessary. A pair of stout leather gloves are required as advised as the edges of panels are raw and sharp, and curled in places as a result of stamping. Time with a pair of tin-snips and file was spent to tidy these up. Due to my height of 5'6" it was found difficult to reach across to screw on the very centre ridged panel on the roof, in fact, I over-balanced and crushed an adjacent roof panel, creasing it. This was easily remedied by running a shaped piece of wood up the inside to smooth out the crease. (The manufacturer's technician admitted he had done this trick himself)-Be aware! After rain it was found that the door guide channel was flooded, allowing water to flow under the floor of the shed.This was remedied by fitting two lengths of 25mm plastic right angle section, (cheaply available from UPVC window fitting firms) to the bottom of the doors, slightly overlapping, and using the existing screws. This directs any rainwater to the edge of the ramp where it can run away and over the edge of the concrete plinth. Other improvements to be considered are replacing the plastic door pulls with two pieces of drilled angle iron, and reinforcing the doors with internal light angle iron diagonal sections, using the existing fixings.- both in the interests of security. However, if a thief is determined to break -in they will, although fitting the above may slow them down! , Overall, for the price, this shed is very good value, and I am very happy to recommend it.

Good Value basic shed.

  • Price: Five Stars
  • Quality: Four Stars
  • Delivery: Five Stars

The instructions took quite a bit of working out and the tiny labels giving the part number were a little difficult to read. Plenty of screws washers nuts and bolts to complete the job. Like putting together a giant Meccano set, with very sharp parts. Gloves supplied were OK but we used some rubber palmed ones bought from a local pound shop. An electric screwdriver is a must, but set the torque setting to the lowest position because the holes are easy to strip.if you are not careful (The extra speednuts are a godsend) Very impressed with how sturdy the finished shed was when screwed to the base. Definitely need two people to put it together and the one who said it took him/her 9 hours must have worked like the devil, it took us much longer than that, but was well worth the effort.

Yardmaster metal shed

  • Delivery: Four Stars
  • Quality: One Star
  • Price: Two Stars

I bought this item to replace my old wooden shed. It took far too long to errect (over 9 hours) and, once assembled, was definitely not extremely robust and secure as advertised. The overall quality of the product is poor and the doors very flimsy. There is a dent in one of the panels when unpacked and the overlap in the panels is poor fitting and allowing in water. This could be cured by supplying rivets to secure panels together to improve weatherproofing. I have reported my disappointment that has apparently been forwarded to the manufacturers but as yet no response has been received. Overall very disappointed with the purchase and definitely would not have bought in hindsight and would not recommend.

Good Value Basic Metal Shed

  • Delivery: Three Stars
  • Quality: Four Stars
  • Price: Five Stars

Delivery took about 3 weeks, but carrier arrived on time to the minute! Although each part is quite lightweight (so easy to man-handle) the assembled shed is quite heavy and stable when bolted down. Assembly was straightforward but do read the instructions carefully - I found a magnifying glass a help. Most of the work could be completed by one person, but another pair of hands was needed to lift the assembled roof into place. Also, the door stiffeners were slightly bowed which meant the doors did not slide properly - easily solved by carefully straightening the stiffeners first. All in all, a good value product that I would recommend

Overall very pleased with the shed

  • Delivery: Five Stars
  • Quality: Five Stars
  • Price: Five Stars

Shed is very sturdy when fully assembled and bolted to the floor. Quite spindly when erecting, so you'll need a calm day to do it on. My husband did most of the pre assembly on his own (roof first and then the framework) then it's basically a case of cladding using the panels, and then lifting on the completed roof which is where I helped. Very good value for money and we had ours delivered in less that 24hrs, I think we must have just met a delivery to our area. Shed is smaller than 8x6 but not by much, so when assembling leave the horizontal adjuster bars of the frame loose so that you can adjust the fit to the last corner panel. So pleased with it that I've just ordered another for my Dad.

This is a great shed for the price. This is my second yard master and you cant beat them. Allow10hours to assemble and be patient with it. Sometimes a whole or five are out of allignment i just use a small drillbit and drill a new whole but hey its a metal shed with hundreds of holes to line up. I will buy this product over again.

We Replied:

Hi Paul, thanks for your review. We always liken the installation of metal sheds to a giant Meccanno kit. It's more about time and patience than engineering skills. But the end result, as you have stated is a great value for money building. Regards Robert
