im after a shed - are these any good? seems pretty cheap/hot ?

Looks good price to me..

Picture is a bit misleading..that shed is at least 10ft by 20ft in the photo!

2nd'ed, the shed in the photo looks wicked, id like that for £99

These sheds are ok if in a protected/sheltered spot. With the bad winds we had lately, mine was totally destroyed. They aren't very sturdy but ok if you want some light storage in an area protected by a fence or wall.

The picture is NOT showing a shed which is 6ft wide, 6ft High, 4ft DEEP as per the specs- can someone clarify

Correct, it looks more like this . . .

Not much of a deal IMO.

i had one of these sheds for a couple of year they do take a battering in the wind and also when its hot espesially in the morning the whole inside is covered in condensation the drips from the roof onto everything,got rid of it and got a wooden one

voted cold not for the poster but as its a very misleading picture of different shed ! argos sort it out

Is there a floor in these ?

No

i think this is really bad form on Argos' part. Tantamount to false advertising.
The actual shed they're selling is probably best suited to a niche need (for the reasons already stated).

A good saving but these sheds are rubbish.

Very misleading photo, do no expect to recieve what is in the photo. I also agree that these thin metal sheds are a load of rubbish - they put one up in the junior school where I was teaching and it lasted about three days - sides/door were completely knackered after a few balls were kicked against it. Also had a smaller one for outside storage and the lid/hinge was in pieces within a few weeks. Waste of money IMO. I would go for a wooden one, or the sturdy plastic type.

they are an absolute pig to assemble too... Got some nasty cuts along the way - wear gloves

Voted cold, because they are rubbish and the misleading picture.

Does it bolt to the floor?

Cannot understand why this is voted HOT at all.

This size is next to useless and metal sheds are just horrible in every respect.;

I'd prefer a plastic one to this.

Couldnt agree more, why is this a hot deal ?
I cant see much positive feedback....

What floor - lol? How can anybody want one of these - you can get a platic one in Homebase for the same money. Granted the one in Argos' picture would be a steal at that price but this is not a hot deal! :?

I've had 2x 6x8 sheds from argos for aroung £200.... so far, they seem fine - mine are sheltered by a fence and wont be having balls knocked against them. They seem quite sturdy, but need a good seal around the base to stop the rain coming in and NEED bolting to the floor or they might get blown away. The ones I got had bolting kits.

The only worry is how long they will last, before the rust is too embarrasing - I'm sure like the description says it'll be 10+ years before they rust enough for water to come in.

They are over half the price of plastic shed, but you need to put down decent flooring - not just onto grass - I think the plastic ones come complete with flooring already so take taht into account when pricing shed up.

BTW, this is an APEX shed, so I suspect it's like the photo only smaller - not like the lean-to that someone quoted?

Probably more like this. Still carp.

Yes it is thin metal and a bind to assemble and comes with no floor and needs bolting down, but it is an Apex not a pent as suggested. It does seem to have grown a fair bit in the Argos pic but thats the general shape of it.
I bought a 10x8 from Argos some time ago and to be honest I am quite pleased with that as storage, fort knox it isnt but what shed is. For putting the gardening tools in out of the weather its fine.

I don't need to buy any shed.

I'm an Expert at building sheds.

Save a lot of money.

Here's one I finished last week.

next size up is on offer too:

Apex Metal Shed 6x7ft
7053445

Save £80.00
£159.99
Was £239.99

I brought 2 of the 8x6 metal shiplap versions 2 months ago for £220 each - soon after they went up to £299, then they went back to £200. so they may go back to the 220 or 199 price at some point.

So, 8x6 is 48sqft, this deal is 6x4 = 24ft.... so I spose 2 of the 6x4's is better value than 2 of the 8x6 as you get more metal?

I bought one of these last year and as a proficient DIYer it was a nighmare to put up and fabrication was required to complete the erection, 1 year on and the sliding doors are still jerky and stiff (thought they might bed in) but the shed is still standing and in good all round condition. No problems with the high winds we encountered and reasonably water tight, if placing on a concrete base use some silacon sealer between the shed and the base or water will just run underneath.

:roll:

Put one up in my garden about a year ago and looks fine still. No water leakage even with gaps at the bottom. The door on mine was a pain so I sprayed a load of WD on it and they close smooth as you like now. Was a pain in the behind to install and definitely needs 2 people. Bear in mind that it needs a concrete floor which I didn't realise when I bought it (dime bar) and spent another £90 on cement. Still it's rock solid and keeps the wife's gardening stuff dry so can't complain.

Just erected one of these for my mum. What a nightmare, took 8 hours. The metal is more like foil. Absolute cack!

Well, I bought one of the 10ft x 13 ft shiplap ones from Argos last year when a similar promo was on. It was £400 which was a saving of about £800 on a similar sized wooden shed.

It weighs an absolute ton and has not moved an inch, even in the very high winds recently.

I put the base rails on 3x2 batons and sealed all round with silicone selaer to stop water coming in underneath (a contributor to condensation)

It took a while to put up, but then I did it on my own in pretty poor weather. Got no problems with the sliding doors, they have 3 different fitting points so make sure you have them right.

I've put mine on flagstones and to get rid of the condensation you just need to buy some 3x2 batons and some flooring sheets - probably about £80 for a shed the size of mine. This will stop the cold air rising from the bottom and causing the condensation on the roof. You can also put in a couple of vents, dead cheap from Wickes.

Anyway, if you are after a large shed/storage then the Argos deal is good, as for the 6x4 one you may as well look out for the 6x4 wooden apex shed that Focus DIY often do for £99.

Here's mine:

Glad to see someone else did as I did and made a timber base frame for it to sit on, I found the base rails so flimsy when connected that I really needed the wooden base frame to be sure of it being all square before assembling the rest to it. Once assembled its really quite rigid, my sliding doors are not a problem either. Mine was 10x8ft and I'm very pleased with it.
