FLIMSY POOR QUALITY SHED
Jimshu - 2 years ago
I purchased this shed based on the description however, the floor is extremely thin and feels like it will break apart when walking. The instructions are a joke. Holes in the end panel. The doors cut be removed by a determined 8 year old they are absolutely flimsy and unfit for use. It is unbelievable that the description mentions security as this shed should never be used to hold items, tools of value. AVOID IF QUALITY IS YOUR PREFERENCE!
Thank you B&Q

We'd been in desperate need of a new shed and after much browsing within our limited budget, we bought one from another large retailer. They sent the wrong one. So began weeks of bad customer service to get it sent back. We found this more expensive one on the B&Q website and we are so glad we did. It has been worth the extra we paid.
The two sheds simply do not compare. This one is more substantial and the panels are of a much superior quality. There are no knots in the wood and all the screws and nails needed for building the shed are supplied. It has been pre-treated but an extra treatment is recommended. It requires two strong people to erect it. It took us two full days to put it together. It looks lovely and the size is perfect.
Ordering and delivery was simple. The supplier (Forest) emailed us within a few hours to offer various suitable delivery times. When this was done, another confirmation email. The day before i received a text giving me a delivery time. On the day if delivery, i received a phone call giving me an exact time. The delivery drivers only deliver to the kerbside which is to be expected. They even gave me the pallet that the shed was delivered on.
I am so pleased that the other company messed up our order because that shed was awful compared to this one. Below are the reasons i'm not able to give 5 stars:
The window fixings are terrible. They are supposed to fit top and bottom to provide a good seal but only 6 strips are supplied which means you have to cut them in half so they don't fit across each window panel. This leaves quite a gap. The special security screws for the windows are irritating and pointless. Someone can so easily get in the shed by snapping the plastic windows. The screws will make no difference to them but were bad to install for us.
Some of the battons for the sides of the shed were badly warped and we couldn't use them.
The floor panels are flimsy. We will be storing some heavy items in this shed and i can't trust that the panels supplied will be substantial enough so we've laid extra panels on top.
The assembly instructions could be better. We aren't builders or experienced DIY'ers so every bit of help would've been great. More pictures and exact instructions would really make a difference.
There are a few gaps but these are easily filled.
Don't let these moans put you off. This is a great shed and i'm looking forward to using it.
