Review By:

This 10×12 metal shed has an impressively spacious interior, which is in part helped by the apex roof. The apex feature naturally brings in extra head height to the interior, which makes it easy for you to store tall tools and more bulky items.

The shed also benefits from a hot dipped galvanised steel construction throughout. This provides extra protection against rust and is also a naturally more durable material. Sliding doors provide quick and easy access to the interior, while flame retardant safety panels prevent against fire.

Let's Take a Closer Look...

Shed Type and Roof Size

This is a generously spaced metal storage shed benefitting from a practical and stylish apex roof. Ensuring water drains quickly and easily off the roof, the apex feature helps to ensure the building lasts for many years to come. It also comes with the added benefit of increasing the amount of height within the shed. Its unique design provides additional height in the central area, allowing you to store particularly large items with ease.

The eaves of the shed are 1.83m high, while the roof is 2.24m high. It also measures a generous 3.03m wide and 3.76m deep.

Cladding, Frame and Floor

It may be metal, but that hasn’t stopped Waltons giving this shed an attractive Shiplap cladding effect. Of course, the main advantage of this is the fact that you benefit from the appearance of wooden Shiplap without having to worry about the cost and effort that typically comes with maintaining it.

A lot of effort has been made to make sure the shed has a tough, durable frame. We love the hot dipped galvanised steel frame. Providing an exceptionally strong structure, you have complete reassurance that this sturdy building will really withstand the test of time.

The fact that there isn’t a floor included has both good and bad points. The good news is you can store really heavy items. The bad news is it limits where you can install the shed. It is very important to build the shed on top of either timber decking, paving slabs or concrete. If you simply have a lawn then you will have to invest in concrete slabs if you really want this model.

Treatment Requirements and Warranty

We recommend this to anybody looking for a shed they can just assemble and use. Absolutely no treatments will be required. The high quality materials will withstand all weathers for many years to come. In fact, to confirm this Waltons gives you a 10 year anti-rust guarantee.

Doors and Windows

Sliding doors feature on this shed. What we like about this is not only does it give you plenty of room to move larger items in and out, but it also ensures they stay open when you need them to. If you’re worried about privacy you’ll also love this model as it doesn’t come with any windows. Anything you store stays out of public view which is great if you need to store expensive machinery or tools.

Security and Privacy

Overall this is a great, secure and private shed. No windows means you’re storage is safe from prying eyes, while the tough metal design ensures it cannot be broken into. The only concern is the fact it doesn’t come with a lock. So before it is fully secure, you will need to spend a little extra money on a good quality locking system.

Customisation Options and Extras

There is a distinct lack of customisation options available with this shed. However, the good news is it doesn’t need anything changing. The only extra thing you need is a lock. Apart from that, the shed comes with a free anchor kit which ensures the shed is firmly secured to the base. You also receive a free pair of gardening gloves which is a nice little bonus.

The one thing we will point out about this shed is the fact it takes a very long time to assemble. The building part itself is not difficult. Instructions are detailed and easy to follow, but the length of time it takes is a lot longer than we expected considering it is advertised as quick and easy to assemble.
Value for Money 7.9/10

For such a long lasting, secure shed we are surprised by its low, affordable cost. It provides great value for money, especially as you don’t need to invest in any extras.
