Smart, dry and roomy

The skylight shed looks very smart. The shed has been up in heavy rain and is watertight. The double doors in particular help to make the most of the space available. The shed did take longer to erect than we had expected, but we did it with 2 people as advised on a calm day (also as advised in the instructions). It is definitely worth putting time and effort into making sure the concrete or wooden base you are using is flat and dry (again, as per the instructions) as the base material is quite floppy plastic and there is no seal to the base.

Palram Skylight 6x8 polycarbonate shed

Two person assembly was fine following instructions closely and took around 2.5 hours. Once constructed this is a sturdy well made design. Quality item, recommended.

Great shed

Very impressed with this product. Slightly worried when we opened the box to see how many pieces but instructions were very clear and once you get started its pretty straight forward. Looks great and appears strong. Only downside was the hinges and locks being fixed with screws which could be removed but easily changed these for nuts and bolts which make it more secure. Loads of space for bikes and tools.

Fast delivery, decent quality, tricky construction

Delivery was very prompt so cannot complain, overall quality seems good, no apparent problems except for the odd pre-drilled hole being slightly misaligned. I managed to construct the shed alone but it is tricky, especially in the early stages and you need a good few hours to complete, a helping hand is useful but not completely essential. Note the screwed in hinges and door furniture, could be fairly easily removed if keeping anything really valuable in their so security should be considered. Overall pretty happy with it and holds a decent amount of stuff.

Lovely looking shed

Lovely looking shed, delivery amazing!! Next day and Palram called to confirm. I was a little worried on opening, but so far so good since being constructed. Love the skylight anthracite/grey look very modern and asthetically pleasing. Would purchase from GardenSite again for sure.

Okay but...

We already have a Palram greenhouse and have been very pleased with it which is why we went for this shed over other ones. For the most part we're reasonably happy with it however, there are a couple of things that could do with improvement. Delivery was surprisingly quick although I would suggest someone strong be there to help as it's delivered as a 1 man delivery. It's rather heavy (52kg) and cumbersome (2.5m x 1.5m). Putting it together was a little awkward in parts. Until most of the walls are fixed in place it's all very flimsy so do not put it up in anything stronger than a breeze, you'll make the job so much harder. Some of the instructions are a little unclear so take time to fully understand how it goes together. Once completed the shed seems to be reasonably sturdy apart from the front/door panel. The side wall panels have lugs that slide into grooves on the frame, the two front panels either side of the door do not, being held in place by the frame lip. This means that they can be pushed in so security is a problem. The door hinges are screwed onto the front of the shed so anyone with a screwdriver can undo them and get to the shed's contents. Another security issue. Overall it's a reasonable shed. I don't think it's secure enough and a bit of a pain to put together but that's probably reflected in the price.

Difficult to erect

No way did this shed only need 2 people to erect it. When it arrived I contacted a local handy man/builder to ask him to erect it. Once he realised the type of shed he would not touch it as said the amount of time it would take him would cost more than the shed. Four friends are helping me. As they can only help on a Friday this is now the second week we have been working on it and we have the walls erected. It too the four of us to do this, three to hold the panels in place and one to put on the nuts/bolts/screws. The metal strips which attach to the top of the panels have been especially difficult and still don't look right.

Well admired.

Bought this for my static caravan. Everyone on the site has said how much they like it. Took three of us to get the side panels in place (2 to hold them in place whilst I fitted them together) but easy enough apart from that. Final assembly sturdy but light and needed bolted down to concrete slabs . Door really needs an additional couple of bolts instead of the flimsy ones supplied...but I knew it would, this is my second shed (have one at home now 2 years old and no problems with it. Good and dry.) Delivery was within 4 days but no just turned up. All in all, very happy with my purchase.

Questions and Answers (3)

Paul Botham Asked:

I've assembled this shed on a level surface but I'm having problems getting the doors to shut properly. Any suggestions?

We Replied:

Dear Paul Thank you for your question. A common problem with the doors not aligning or shutting correctly can be due to the nuts on the front panels being tightened too much during installation. You could try slackening all of the nuts on the front section, get the doors into the correct position and then re-tighten the nuts to see if this helps. Alternatively, if this still does not solve the problem then we would advise to contact the manufacturer's after-sales department, who will be able to offer technical advice. You can contact them online at: Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
