Let's Take a Closer Look...

Shed Type and Roof Size

12 x 20 StoreMore Emerald Olympian Apex Metal Garage InsideThis is a huge sized metal garage that is also ideal as a hobby shed or workshop. Like the majority of garages these days, this one comes with a practical apex roof. The roofs design makes it an excellent water-resistant building, ensuring all rainwater runs right off onto the ground. It also provides a lesser known benefit which is more head room inside the building. This means the garage can easily store taller vehicles or equipment with absolutely no problems.

The roofs height measures 2.59m and the doors measure 2.52m wide and 2.05m high. The depth is particularly large, boasting 6.04m, while the width of the garage measures 3.72m. This is slightly wider than a lot of larger garages on the market.

Cladding, Frame and Floor

12 x 20 StoreMore Emerald Olympian Apex Metal Garage InternalThe vinyl cladding has been designed so that it is resistant to the elements. It has a very solid design, ensuring rain water cannot pass through the material. It also increases the security of the garage as it would be pretty difficult to get through. Backed up by a galvanised steel frame, you are left with a very durable and stable building. It is recommended that you use an anchor kit to secure the framework to the base. Whilst it is pretty heavy, anchoring it will give you better peace of mind.

The garage comes without a floor which is why it is recommended for heavyweight storage. You won’t have to worry about the weight of your vehicle collapsing the floor or damaging it. However, what you will need to worry about is where you can actually assemble the garage. A floor typically provides a good base, allowing you to assemble the building anywhere you like. However, as there isn’t one you are limited to building it on either paving slabs or concrete.

Treatment Requirements and Warranty

Hate the thought of having to continuously treat your garage to keep it protected? If so you will love this model. It doesn’t require any form of treatment at any time. This zero maintenance feature is definitely one of the highlights of the garage for us. It not only minimises the hassle faced from regular maintenance, but it also lowers the costs involved. The building even comes with a worry-free 10 year anti-rust warranty.

Doors and Windows

A unique feature of this metal garage is its sliding door. Not many metal garages come with this feature so it does give this model a slight edge over its competition. So why is it a benefit? Well the sliding door not only give you more space in the garden, but it also stays open when you need it to. Even the heaviest garage doors can be blown shut in extremely strong gusts of wind. You won’t need to worry about this with the sliding door on this building. It also slides upwards, giving you a maximum amount of space to manoeuvre your vehicle in and out of the garage.

The fact this building is also windowless means you can rest assured that your vehicle will be completely hidden away. It also gives the garage a more solid appearance. There are ventilated gables built into the garage so the lack of windows won’t cause an issue with ventilation.

Security and Privacy

12 x 20 StoreMore Emerald Olympian Apex Metal Garage Open DoorYou won’t find a more secure garage anywhere else. This building focuses largely on security and provides several useful features which ensure your storage is always fully protected. The sliding door is a particularly good secure feature, as is the robust design of the building.

If your garden is pretty open to the public, the windowless aspect of the building will also be beneficial to you. It prevents anyone from peering into the garage and gives you reassurance that your belongings will be 100% private.

Customisation Options and Extras

There is just one extra we recommend with this garage and that’s the Storemore metal shed anchor kit. The kit comes with cross slot headed screws which are removable if needed in the future. It also features a masonry drill bit and the screws literally just fit through the pre-drilled holes in the base rails. Their purpose is to secure the base to the garages structure, helping to boost stability and improve its overall strength. The peace of mind you receive from this extra is well worth the £15 price tag.

The one thing we consistently find with the Storemore outdoor metal buildings is that they tend to take quite a long time to assemble. This isn’t something that the manufacturer makes clear. In fact, they lead you to believe it takes a very short time to install. However, despite the time it takes, the actual process is really straight forward.
