Gonna get shot down for this, as alot of people dont like them, but........

For a 10 x 8 shed this is not a bad price. £80 off and I can't see it cheaper. Dont forget Quidco.

- A major, major pain to put up. Seriously. Even pros have issues.
- Condensation problems. Majorly so.
Does anyone else think the photo looks a bit iffy ?
Either that ride on lawnmower is tiny or that shed is massive
I have one and this is a great price. It's a bit of a pain to erect; but no big deal really (I did it myself). This deserves some heat.
I had one of these .. really enjoyed building it

Not much of an expert on sheds myself, but for the size looks like a good price

I've had one, rusted after the first year.
Better off buying a wood shed or buy Keter which is what I did.
Hottub party room? Forget the condensation issues then!

Mine started to rust too.

The roof is pretty low on these, I'm 5ft 7" and need to duck so I don't hit my head on the beams.

Same photo on 10 x 13, so I don't think the photo is representative of the size.
Had a metal shed, absolute nuisance to put up, feels very very flimsy, makes a ton of noise in strong winds, not very secure and can’t hang anything on the walls. Learn from my mistakes, go wooden.

You could put a "dwang" of treated wood across up to hang things
Is possible to modify the metal sheds to prevent the rust and maybe insulate the internal to help reduce the condensation? Like maybe painting it with waterproof paint etc or just not worth the effort? No experience on metal shed. Mines a wooden one which I put some insulation inside, painted anti mould. I would like to get another wooden one but seems 3-4 times the price of this metal one...

Yeah, they're terrible.
I had mine for around 3-5 yrs, bought it from Argos.
I complained to them that it was meant to come with a 10 anti corrosion warranty but they said that was with the company that made them.
I contacted them and was given a real run around.
They offered to replace the panels affected by rust so I told them they might as well send a complete shed as every panel was affected.
I never heard from then again after that.
Argos agreed to a refund minus 25% for the time I had it or a replacement shed.
I told them I didn't want another metal shed and would prefer a Keter plastic shed but it was £30 more than the metal shed.
She gave me the Keter shed and said not to worry about the £30 difference.
Took some work but happy with the Keter shed
TL;DR Metal shed bad
We have a similar metal shed for over 10 years, it was not too bad to put up with two people. We took our time, silicone sealer around some of the joints, and fixed it up on a 3x2 wooden frame (which we had cemented on to the ground). We put vinyl flooring on the inside, never had any problems with condensation. We put in some freestanding metal shelves around one side of the shed, the other side has our bikes in it.

The roof on the outside has rust on it (no rust at all on the inside), and there are small patches of surface rust appearing on the outside of the doors, but apart from that we have had non issues at all.

Great price.....HOT
Thanks guys for all the input about metal sheds, I've been looking for something to store my mower in and was considering them. Does anyone know what the cheapest, waterproof storage would be? Was looking at the kettler boxes that were on at £30ish but they have bad reviews
Is that in meters?

No. It's not in metres either.

Bought this 2 weeks ago for £237 delivered. Thought it was a great price for a wooden 8x6 and was delivered in 4 days to NI. Took me 4 hours to assemble and it's pretty sturdy. I've only a small back so I plan on making it a brew shed with a serving hatch onto a patio covered by a Gazebo. No Quidco though.

Was it difficult to carry with your small back?
Was a good idea untill I put one up I'm 6ft 4 and to the top of the roof is 6ft so made the roof height really low
Hundreds of tiny nuts, bolts and washers, bought and erected my son one last year, still have nightmares,lol.
Yes, the 10 x 13 shed seems to be same picture, so well caught out !

I didn't bother complaining because the guarantee is for rusting right through, not surface rust.

The shed on the right was put up a year earlier, they are about 5 and 6 years old now.
Notice the height difference too.

Paid £347 for a Tiger Pent Shed windowless.

Suppose these will be cheaper materials. Not that I am trying to justify it...

I bought a 10 x 13 about 10 years ago. Was a pain to put up but it hasn't really rusted. Cant say the condensation has been terrible either. I did put a DPM down to reduce damp from the ground. Overall its been useful over spill from the garage. I am only 5' 5" so the headroom hasn't concerned me in the least!

Takes hours and hours due to the many hundreds of screws and bolts etc and so many little panels. Condensation is a huge problem in these metal sheds so really do be aware of this before you buy.

if you can affford plastic it really is the way to go. Keter plastic sheds are excellent alternative to this.
I would like like to say that this is a great price for this size of this product although for most cases I think you’ll regret buying it

I put mine on a concrete slab and even then it was horrendous for condensation

I've got one of these that's been up 15 years and no sign of rust.
Did you do a proper concrete base with polythene sheet as a liner?
Not sure if that makes a difference but mine looks the same as it did when assembled except for the usual green moss patches here and there.

Was a bugger to assemble though. Never seen so many screws.

Just finished putting this up and boi... It was a major pain to put up. Plus prepare to spend some extra more money on it.

No pro will have a condensation issue.

This is a user issue! If you ensure the base is correctly treated and their is some air flow which there usually is.

Pros don't have issues with these just people who don't understand or research well.

I put mine up last year with the help of a builder and have zero condensation issues. In fact it was better than my wooden shed for condensation so please stop spreading myths.
Also a tip for you who are going to buy make sure you put some clear nail varnish on the screws once installed.

This will stop them rusting.
I've had one for about 10 years now. Never had any rust and not had any condensation. Of course it's sat on a poured concrete slab. If it's sat on the ground I suspect you might get issues. They do take a lot of work to erect. Took me 2 full days and I'm a very competent builder with all the tools.
