[Amazon Glitch?] Duramax Woodside 10 x 8 Vinyl Storage shed with three fixed windows + Foundation Kit - £456.08 Delivered (Same Model As The £719 Shed) @ Amazon **Deal Now Confirmed As The V2 Shed For The Price Of The Old Model**

Edited by:"Norse"Found 17th Nov
Amazon have listed the V2, three window, £710 shed for the price of the old single window shed. So a bit of a bargain at £456 including free shipping.

Seems to be between £600 and £800 elsewhere with the foundation kit.

Lots of fun putting these sheds up, but once up they are great. You will need some exterior ply for the floor and a tube of silicone to seal the roof fittings but it's all part of the 'fun' of assembling one of these buildings.

All weather durable long lasting and maintenance free vinyl
Strong steel galvanised interior structure support
Tested for 20 lbs / sqft snow load
Door with lockable handle
15 years limited warranty
Item display height 232 centimetres
Item display length 319 centimetres
Item display width 240 centimetres
Item display weight 140 Kilograms

Edit: See THIS POST for details of the likely error.

Edit 2: Deal now confirmed as being the new £719 V2 shed for the price of the old model. Confirmation HERE

Why would you want to store your vinyl in a shed?



Because it's better than storing it on the shed!

Used a few of the Keter sheds in the past and never had to use silicone on the roof is there any reason you need it with this one

So this dont have a base? Won't dampness get in then?

It's recomended to put a little silicone around the plastic roof fittings, but that's it - you don't need to silicone the whole roof. The thing I really like about the Duramax sheds over the Keters (we've had both) is the large (wide) doors that give you loads of space to get big items in and out. We currently have a 10 x 8 (they're actually 10.5 x 8 ) set up as a mini gym and love it.

Pay a little more and get a proper treated timber shed... will outlive one of these!

Yeah these plastic sheds aren't for everyone, however, this Duramax has a 15 year warranty and there is zero maintenance, unlike the wooden type with the wood preserve paint job every two years or so, and the roof felt doesn't last forever. I simply hose down the plastic shed at the start of the season then that's it for the year.

Treated wood comes with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee, you shouldnt need to do anything to it.
Felt doesn't last forever, but I've heard these plastic sheds do go brittle and only seen average and bad reviews for them.

I didn't think that pressure treated wood was waterproof, hence the need to add wood preserve every year or two to protect it.

Thanks OP ordered.. looking at the comments on Amazon has been at £450 before. Nevertheless good price.

Yeah, dropped down to around £450 this time last year. Recent prices are:

Nov 17, 2017 04:02 AM £456.08
Nov 09, 2017 01:50 PM £539.03
Nov 08, 2017 05:52 AM £539.67
Oct 22, 2017 11:14 PM £537.88
Oct 22, 2017 02:14 AM £538.93

No postage to Northern Ireland.

Think the lowest it dropped to was £390 back at the start of summer. Still a good price though

They use tough vinyl panels with a strong supporting metal structure. Once up they will take a real hammering from the weather and still stand to tell the tale. The doors are metal with a vinyl front.

On first appearances (certainly going by the pictures) you would expect a difference. However, after looking at both pages I would assume that you will be getting the newest version which means they are the same (aside from the images of course).

1. The description title of the shed posted here (taken directly from Amazon) clearly states: 'Woodside 10 x 8 Vinyl Storage shed with Foundation and three fixed window'.

2. The product numbers on both the £719 shed and this shed are identical (30214-1) and in any case the product number for the old, one window shed, is 30211.

Which makes this even more of a bargain if it is Amazon's mistake.

So, this is what you 'should' receive from Amazon, but I think it best to leave the OP images the same as on Amazon's website until we know for sure.

I think it probably is the v2 that you get, as I have been keeping an eye on this since the summer. so the v2 has been around for a while, so its unlikely that they have both v1+v2 stock. strange that they haven't removed the listing for the v1, if they don't stock it anymore. I hope the other 2 windows mentioned are not the 2 air vents on the front lol.

Thanks,

That's the most vinyl I've seen on a roof, It could even be a record.

I see, never had water come on the Keter ones that's for sure.

One we have now has really wide doors, happy with it.

Like everything I notice the new ones are built cheaper, panels seem thinner

Had Keter one for 10 years before moving, ended up leaving it and getting a bigger one.

It seen some nasty weather and hadn't aged at all.

Can't comment on the most recent versions.

I only had a couple of issues with the Keter sheds, one was the internal clips on the 8 x 11 model that kept breaking when trying to fix them in place (Keter replaced them all for free) and the other being the front of the 8 x 11 leaking from the vented (peaked) piece above the doors, but that was sorted with some silicone.

I did, however, get the 8 x 11's for a stupidly low price, not sure I would have been happy had I paid the normal £800-£900 price tag.

The one design feature that made me buy the Duramax was the side opening aspect, the big Keters have end access which is narrower, so for me, that (and the 15 year warranty) was a deciding factor.

How small (or rather, how large) are the packages this is delivered in? My ground is not yet ready for a shed, but this is exactly the sort of thing I was thinking of putting up, however would need to store it in the meantime if I bought now.

My shed (one window version) arrived in two boxes, the main large one was between 4 and 5ft long by 2-2.5ft wide and approx 8" deep, the other was slightly smaller but both did weigh quite a bit!

The critical thing with these and the Keter sheds is a firm and level base, if you have that then you are pretty much home and dry.

I got one of these from last deal and rather than fit a plywood floor a made a "concrete" mix from sand and peagravel, made a great durable base.

I read it, don't presume or imply I didn't. It's not a glitch, it's been around this price, it is just a price reduction presumably as they aren't selling and few buy sheds in the winter.

So maybe Amazon haven't spotted the error yet?

From lower down the Amazon page on the above deal:

"There is a newer model of this item
Duramax (30214-1) 10 x 8 Feet V2 Wood Side Vinyl Shed - Ivory/Brown
£719.00"

Yet they share the same model number. Given that the one posted here has the image for the old version but clear description for the new £719 model, I think it's fair to label it as a glitch. If you can find the new model cheaper then feel free to post it.

The shed has an internal metal support frame, with care you may be able to attach plywood to that.

Ideally yes, but if you have room you could assemble the shed slightly away from the wall/fence (minus the floor) then with another person (both of you on the inside) lift/slide the shed into place, we had to do this due to a restricted assembly area.

Here's an assembly vid from Duramax (older model but same principle) that may give you ideas on assembly options (don't be put off by the panels flexing - it really is quite strong when finished)
