Voted cold because I have had the privilege of building one of these for my aunty.

They are complete garbage,poor instructions ,badly manufactured and not secure in the slightest,.

They may be steel but the doors run on plastic hangers , you could have the most secure padlock in the world but one kick and the doors are off in my opinion.

This is purely my opinion but it is cheap and if you want cheap as opposed to quality.............

"Shed looks flimsy on first viewing. Its in fact very robust, feels nice and compact, Solid and value for money."

I have the big 10 footer,very fiddly to build -took a whole day,instructions poor,but very robust and watertight,the steel doors make a great burglar alarm ,no way of opening them quietly.great buy at this price.

Have to add to that. I had the builders who were doing work me me put one up and they charged me extra 'cos it was so difficult!

Would have been cheaper to buy a wooden panel shed:oops:

Something like this?

a bad workman...........................:whistling:

Great find ..voted hot.:thumbsup:

They were £85 at the end of last summer (for 6 x 4) at Homebase = same group as Argos.
That included the anchor kit, which is essential.
It seems Argos don't include it.

I remember looking for shed last year and there were lots of deals posted on here.

The consensus seemed to be that no matter how cheap metal sheds aren't worth it, most complaints being that they are hard to put up, flimsy and are susceptible to condensation.

I paid around £200 for a wooden 7x5 and it has been fine.

Banned

used to have a similar one years ago. it made a hell of a noise when the wind picked up and was raining

i've a 7x5' version of these. You need to be good at diy to get it up - the instructions are very very poor. its not terrably secure (held together with screws so one screwdriver and you're in) but you'd have to spend loads to get a shed that actually was. now its up its solid and watertight. One thing to note is mine didnt come with a floor, so you need to be building onto a patio or similar, so you can bolt the thing onto it. I don't think it'd work built just onto earth

Same product is £101.99 this weekend in Homebase using 15% discount code.

Code = DISC15 or print voucher from ]here

Therefore Argos deal is COLD

doors let the shed down far to flimsy took mine off and replaced with a sheet of stainless steel nice solid shed now

Bought the 7' X 6' last year and built it myself. Hairy enough as there was a slight breeze! Good, solid watertight shed. There is no anchor kit per say, just plugs and screws supplied and most will have these in their toolbox if not present. Top tip; mine came in that plastic wafer 'cardboard' - use this to make a great waterproof floor :thumbsup:

Bought one of these a few years back to store the kids bikes, ours is a bigger version, they are difficult to build, doors are a let down, and although essentially watertight condensation forms inside and then drips down, which has allowed the bikes to rust. Also water seeps in from the bottom as these metal sheds do not come with a floor, not suitable for erecting on earth and do consider making the base watertight. We layed a concrete base for ours. Good price tho.

I bought and erected a 10' x 8' last year. Difficult to put up, flimsy and the entire roof leaked so I've had to put in extra screws and fill joins with waterproof filler. I also agree that anyone with a regular phillips screwdriver could get in, no problem. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't recommend a tin shed to anyone. My worst buy

saw this the other day, terrible things

They might revoke that comment after a year or so, regardless of the selling point 100% galvanised, it will rust at points and become an eyesore.

They are not that difficult to put up, just a bit of a pain, be armed with a power driver and decent ratchet driver...unless you want to be there for a week!

And don't overtighten, it doesn't take much. Make sure it's well anchored to as it will blow away.

On the other hand just pay more and get something better

With flat pack etc not always a good idea, I just put up a decent brand of shed (not metal) and the instructions were wrong, part of them had been corrected in the form of stickers over the mistakes but other mistakes existed, let the company know, how bothered they are I'm not so sure.

we have had one of these for 12 months now and apart from being a pain to put together its been fine no probs at all

I've got a 10x13 foot oneof these - had it up for over a year and so sign of any rust whatsoever.
I built the metal floor frame onto 3x2 lengths of wood to raise it slightly, alll sealed around the edges with clear silicon so no water comes in underneath.

It's huge, very sturdy and was pretty straightforward to put up as long as you follow the instructions VERY carefully.

No problems with the roof leaking, I just used the tube of clear silicone sealer to put in all the roof holes before tightening up.

And you can eliminate the condensation issue by building it onto a wooden floor - simple.

One things for sure, it will last a lot longer than a wooden one, you don't see many large warehouses built out of timber and you don't need to keep painting the thing either.

err.. in the way that someone with the same phillips screwdriver could get into a wooden shed by simply removing the door hinges?

Got the B&Q one they had on here a while ago.

A BLOODY PAIN IN THE ASS TO PUT UP!!!!!! Roof was messed up as it was short - and the instructions were pathetic to put it politely.

I wish IKEA made sheds - now IKEA is a company that knows how to make flat pack stuff! The rest are rubbish.

Bottom line is it don't matter where you get the shed from they will all be a pain to put up.

Probably cheaper to buy planks of wood and boards and put them together yourself. Much stronger and easier to build.
