  1. Raymon Cole

    We bought this shed because a smaller shed by Palram has stood the test of time and lasted very well with no problems and very little maintenance. This however was a little bit harder to put up. It required two people as most of the panels are flimsy and move around a lot especially if there is any wind, until most of the aluminium frame is complete. It also requires a bit of prior organisation sorting out the parts and familiarising yourself with the screws and bolts. The instructions are very clear and all the parts clearly labelled or marked which helps the job go smoothly. There are some parts of the process that require more than basic knowledge and may take a while to work out. It took us around 8 hours to put up. But the all the materials are of good quality and the finished shed is very strong and looks very nice. The skylight roof is a very innovative feature from the outside it looks like a dark tiled roof on the inside it is relatively translucent and lets in a fair amount of light.I am pleased with its sturdiness and appearance and I think it offers good value.

    This was purchased to replace a timber shed and after spending a few hours assembling the kit I am very pleased with the result.The skylight roof is an outstanding feature and far better than the windows in my old shed. Ordering was easy, the price was right and the delivery was very speedy.Recommended. I must mention however a couple of small moans. l. The door stiffeners (item 8439) are shown as being screwed into the door frame on page 41 of the booklet; there were no holes drilled for this. ll. One of the bars (item 7985) used to join the two pieces making up the guttering (page 25) had been drilled at an angle and proved quite tricky to connect. Despite checking that all the parts had been included in the packaging, this was clearly just a random faulty item and only became apparent when I used it.
