I very much doubt it

Metal sheds can be well worth buying, maybe for use where regulations restrict the use of inflamable (wooden) sheds.
You need care in assembly as they have 100's of parts and screws but although thin give good service once assembled.
I have an 8x10ft one and have been very pleased with both its looks and performance as a dry store, even though while building it on my own I swore a lot.

Next door had one of these sheds it fell to bits in the winds :w00t:

The roof came off, and the door :w00t:

I've only got one bad point about my metal shed, and that's condensation. It's always on the roof and i can't seem to shift it. Other than that they're great.

Hot deal(s) btw!

they are a ****** to put together and ideally need to be bolted to a concrete base for stability but other than that they are pretty good.

Mine is the same as drewdibble, everything inside gets soaked from the condensation. Anyone got any ideas how to solve this problem - other than putting the shed inside (lol)?

They are pain to put together comes with 100s of screws and nuts.
After all that you get soaked with condensation. Anyone got any ideas how to solve this problem.
I got a large size metal shed 5m x 4m.

On the homebase website, there is a bit about care of these sheds. They recommend opening the vent(?) and putting thick polystyrene in the roof's underside

Just stick in a load of silicone crystals ;-)

Ah, the metal sheds and their interminable problem of condensation. Which I have solved I have one of the biggest of these that you can get and use it as my workshop. How did I combat the condensation problem???? Easy, I bought a few rolls of polystyrene wall insulation. Make sure you get flame retardent stuff. I then measured and cut out the lengths to suit and used PVA glue slightly watered down to fix it to the underside of the roof and walls. Do one piece at a time as it can start to peel if you are not careful.

PITA? It sure is but, it's worth it in the end.

I'm tempted to get one of the small ones just for the garden tools. I would also recommend bolting this to a concrete base or a solid and heavy wooden floor. My workshop is on raised blocks to allow air flow and bolted to a wooden base that would take a US style hurricane to shift.

Will add heat for this.

Good offer! I've been looking about for a while but I bought a metal shed from the following link last week, admittedly it's not due to arrive until March 16th - but you get a 6 x 5 of the same price storemore.uk.com/pag…tml

(No I'm not affiliated - I genuinely have bought one from here!)

+ 1.5% quidco :-)

What surface is it on? If there is no base on the shed and it is on a permeable surface, most of the moisture will be from the ground so if you put an impermeable base (plastic lining etc) it should help reduce the condensation.

I did some research on this as I have been considering one too. All good info on here but I understand that generally a raised floor with a plastic liner then wood helps the most, then covering the walls with insulation (I have heard good things about cork tiles).

Its on a concrete base, I got over 5 tonnes of solid concrete base but condensation won't go away.

This is similar shed and similar price from Tesco - if you use the > £90 code.

Mine has been up over 12 months and I have no problem with condensation (touch wood) I expected too but just lucky I guess.
Shed is attached to a 3x3" wooden frame and mounted on paving slabs, so no magic there. Water will be pouring out the door tomorrow now.

is the Karcher K2.14 Pressure Washer good price for its spec? I can't seem to find this model on karcher website...

£4.99 in Boyes , thats where i got mine from

Karcher's model range is confusing - I've just bought one myself and took ages to decide.

Forty quid does seem a decent price, but the RRP of sixty seems a bit steep. This washer has a 'universal' motor, such as might be found in a washing machine, whereas the slightly more expensive ones (e.g. the K2.99 I just bought on Amazon for £79.99) have an 'induction' motor. Induction motors are longer lasting (no carbon brushes) and quieter.

Manufacturers invariably state if a washer has an induction motor, but keep very quiet if it hasn't!

If you can afford that bit more then it's worth it - if not, then £40 for this one is a better bet than £25 for an Argos cheapie!
(for amusement - there was one for sale on ebay - same washer, plus a patio cleaner, for £160 buy-it-now, claiming an RRP of £243!!!!)

You sound like you've done a good job there, I wonder if the inclusion of wood that's done it?

Ok, I have one of the very large Yardmaster metals workshops. Mine is raised by 6 inches from the ground to start with on concrete blocks. It is then on flooring joists that are about another 6 inches and then finally on top of these I laid 1inch flooring boards (solid wood). Despite all of that I still got very bad condensation on the inside of the roof. The only thing that stopped it was my 'papering' the inside of the roof with lining polystyrene which you can get from decorating shops usually found next to the wallpaper. The rolls are cheap at around £3 each to buy. Possibly I had the condensation problem because I also went around every bit of the workshop with the sealant gun to prevent any drafts. Be aware of that. If you leave it as it is maybe the drafts help to blow and water heavy air away from the inside?
