I bought a metal one from argos last year, took a fair bit of time to put together but its been a great help with all the garden stuff that needs storing over winter.

Brought 2 a month ago for £220 each - then saw they went up to £299. So it's a bit of a con really, they put the price up to £299, so they could advertise 1/3 off! £220 was a bargain at the time, so £205 is a great price.

Decent shed, will take 2 people 6-7 hours to put up though - but that was in the freezing cold.

You cant see it on the pic, but it's got a skylight, which is basically 1/3 of the roof is plastic, rather than metal. And the handles can have a lock attached, but it's not that secure, the handle can be cut off as it's plastic.

IT's only got a wood grain - it doesnt really look very woodlike as it's basically cream colours with a bit of the trim in brown - I expected it to be green as per the picture.

And don't forget you'll need a base to put it on - we had concrete delivered - it comes with the anchoring kit, though.

Ebuyer have 6' high shelves for £20 to go with it.

Great feedback cokeman123- Still a hot deal thanks Mike! Voted hot

Spend a bit extra and get a plastic keter, you'll thank me for it when erecting it and in years to come when it doesn't rust!

I did think I should have maybe got 2x plastic sheds, but they are near enough twice the price everywhere... These sheds will probably rust one day, but I'd guess a but of cure-rust (or whatever it's called) will fix it.

Have been looking for a decent shed for the last three months ... great price. Heat added.

I also bought one last year. Still looks OK and fitted my own floor using just ply and timber. I now have fitted guttering all round as well. For the base you could lay it on a paving slabs provided there is a sub base, I laid a concrete base and drilled into it.

Could take a whole day to erect with another person ideally, however voted HOT. I would suggest that you use a cordless srewdriver with a low setting for the torque action.

Anyone who cant be bother with the concrete base, the likes of the Keter does not actually need any anchoring, they weight quite enough.

This has been put to test as the storms over the winter just past took down one side of my heavy duty fence albeit old and moved an old wooden shed...but not the trusty plastic shed.

I put one of this metal ones up for my Father and it is looking pretty rusty after just a couple of year, also the doors are not the best as in operation, get very sticking and seems to get fair bit of condensation.

Where did you get your "Keter" shed from? Is that the brand name?

Costco have them in stock....almost £500.

These sheds weigh 78kg... The anchoring isnt just for it blowing away, anyone could easily lift it off the ground to get in.

Voted hot, also I believe you get a £10 voucher if you spend over £100?

Same price at ]Homebase (same company) but it's a 10% off day tomorrow (Thursday 20th) so you should be able to order instore and save £20.

They had the 8 x 6 for just over £200, then the 10 x 8 for nearer £500, now they have some other monster a bit fancier for about £560.

Homebase do the 8 x 6 as do B and Q but they want nearer £400 for it.

Still money well spent at that

Yes I know, something you couldn't do with the Keter due to weight and it coming with a floor.

I got one from Costco but I have bought one from b and q with them pricematching homebase less 10% think it was, while ago now.

Yes that is the brand, they do a few different products

outstanding-keter.com/

The summit is currently in Costco for about middle £500's if you have the space its a bargain.

I see they are showing accesory kits on their site, they were included with my shed, handy couple of shelves, I then put 2 stacking shelves at the rear, this is not possible with the metal shed, well its possible but not so effective as you dont get the same height,, so lose space there too.

When it says 'base not included' does that literally mean there is no floor?

Correct, its up to you to supply a base.

Eh?

You know what galvanised means?

Maybe your 10 years old and your hoping to live another 90 years, if this is the case, then I’ll offer you a “lifetime” stupidity guarantee that a “galvanised” product will outlive you (rust wise), double your lifespan, and possibly a wee bit more.

Wish people on here would think a wee bit more before posting nonsense.

let down by the sliding doors SO FLIMSY

I spose the doors are a little flimsy, the worst part is the handles that you use to put a lock on - you could cut them with a kitchen knife. Expect to pay a few more £ if you want to add a decent set of handles to them - to make it more secure.

I'd guess that you could quite easily cut a hole in a plastic shed if someone really wanted to - the difference being that cutting a hole in plastic would be silent, in these metal sheds, it'd be quite noisy.

Yes I know what galvanised means and the one that I put up for my father was 'galvanised'

Nonsense? His shed went up the same time as I put up my Keter on and his is an eyesore and mine still looks new, simple really!

'Sound galvanized steel with many years of corrosion-free life ahead can sometimes be rust stained or discoloured. This may give an incorrect impression that the coating has failed and is, in some cases, visually unacceptable'

Reason......Direct contact of galvanized parts with unprotected or inadequately steel (e.g. galvanized steel sections fastened with unprotected, electroplated or painted steel bolts).

And if they were so confident in this product why would they offer just 10yrs and stipulate 'perforation rust'

Trimetals for example offer 25yr guarantee on there products as they are obviously better quality, yet both products are labelled as 'galvinised'

Right you can wish me happy birthday in approx 1hrs time when I will be 11! TUBE :whistling:

If a thief wants into your shed, they will get into it, metal or plastic, however I don't think cutting would be the answer, access would be via the doors.

There is no way you would cut the plastic in silence, maybe quieter but I would imagine it's a lot tougher than your plastic coke bottle and given the weight of an 8 x 6 for example, I think some of the Keters are steel reinforced too maybe, not 100% on that one

I haven't trying hacking any holes in mine just yet

the large ones are massive and are easy to clean but look pig ugly though....prefer wooden sheds myself so they blend in with the surroundings

depends how well the product has been galvanised.....if it hasnt been galvanised fully/properly then it will still rust, esp if they are in contact with non-galvanised metals

Yeh there are big, massive is good though if you need space on what has to be said a budget, I dont have a huge garden so just went for the 8 x 6 and it doesn't look out of place.

Cheap galvanisation (as I assume this is, as it's a cheap shed) will rust in a very short length of time - ie. a few years, not decades.
