Shed Type and Roof and Size
This is a storage shed that has a pent roof. The building has measurements of 127.5 cm in width, and this reduces down to 177 cm in width internally. As regards depth, the measurement is 81 cm, which goes down internally to 67.5 cm.
The building has a pent roof, which means you have immediate protection from rainwater damage. The pent roof does an excellent job as regards water, because it immediately sends it off as run off. it is a great aspect because it also affects the interior height positively, as well as allowing more room to work in when you are storing taller items.
Cladding and frame and floor
The manufacturer has clearly thought about the best interests of the customer here,and has supplied a tongue and groove cladding. This leaves you with cladding that is tough and durable. It is literally planks locked together, leaving a completely smooth and impenetrable surface when it comes to water. But the weight of the combined planks also creates plenty of strength too.
There is solid sheet material on the floor, which is not as strong as tongue and groove, but should still provide some protection against the wet. You will have to be careful to ensure that it is kept clean. We would have liked to see tongue and groove on the floor here, and we think it won’t have affected the price that much.
Treatment requirement and warranty
There is a full factory applied basecoat treatment here and this means that you don’t have to worry about treating the building annually at all. This is excellent and gives you immediate value as a customer.
You also have that peace of mind that comes with knowing that the building is fully protected.
Doors and windows
The double door width is 58.6 cm, and this is pretty standard. It does allow for excellent access though, and we were pleased to see a door that opened easily too.
Security and privacy
You get a turn button, but if you are concerned about security the unit is windowless so it will not necessarily present as vulnerable.
BillyOh see this is a a bit of a luxury item,and they have provided the chance to colour the building. The paints are not expensive, and should allow you to put your own style on the unit.
They also help to address that security issue by allowing you to purchase a padlock and padlock protector as extras. These are heavy duty, and should allay any fears you have about security.
This is good quality. We feel a little let down by the flooring (and no chance to purchase tongue and groove) but the build is solid.
Longevity Of Materials 9/10
Again, the solid sheet may cause issues over time, but you can combat this by keeping things clean.
A good and solid amount of storage here. The pent roof allows for taller items, and there is plenty of space in there anyway.
Ease Of Installation 8/10
You will have some pre-drilling to do but if you have someone helping you should have it up and ready in around 5-6 hours.
Makes for good value for money. We were not happy with the floor (but that was more to do with the fact we couldn't change it) but the tongue and groove and that pent roof offer real value.
Final Thoughts: A good and solid store. We would have liked more flexibility in flooring but overall, it is a good option that you can't really argue against at that price.
