This 6 x 8 Waltons reverse apex shed has a wonderful and distinctive apex roof. This looks great, but it also offers protection against rainwater. In addition, you also have a roof that brings in more natural head height. This is great if you have to store taller tools or even just awkward shaped ones. Sand felt has been included to ensure that roof doesn’t suffer from damp and rot, and there are also solid sheet materials in the roof and floor. So you’re getting a very tough building.

6 x 8 Waltons Reverse Apex Shed: How easy to build?
Hey as much as we wish that we lived in a world where a shed could be flown in by a helicopter, already built and just dropped into your garden the fact is you are going to have to put your DIY hat on, roll up your sleeves and have a some fun putting this bad boy together yourself. Of course your own DIY skill level will determine just how long this will take to build, but most people say it is in the 5-7 hour mark. Your shed will arrive flat packed and will require two people to build. I am sure some people could manage on their own, but that would be a royal pain in the butt, especially when trying to put on that 7 foot high roof! Waltons do tend to do a great job in making easy to build sheds and we think even a person who is not a DIY magician will be able to have this up without any problems.
6 x 8 Waltons Reverse Apex Shed: How Safe & Sturdy Is The Shed?
The 6 x 8 Waltons Reverse Apex Shed is comprised of 12 mm thick Shiplap Tongue and Groove cladding which at a glance first of all gives the shed a really “flat” kind of look that is easy on the eyes, but it is also very tough and up to the job of protecting your stuff inside from our harsh British weather and it even can take abuse from the kids as well (what is it with kids and them liking to throw things at the shed????) so this is one tough shed that is going to last you a long time and look good in the process.
The floor is made from 8 mm Solid Sheet Board which is pretty strong and will be up to the task of you piling stuff up (or maybe you are one of the rare people who keeps their shed nice and tidy even years after it has been built!) over the years. The roof is made from the same 8 mm Solid Sheet Board and with its sand felt roof and just under 8 feet of height will not only let you store items pretty high, but also let the water just run right off it when it rains keeping your belongings nice and dry inside.
6 x 8 Waltons Reverse Apex Shed: Overall Build Quality
While this is a very nice looking shed the 6 x 8 Waltons Reverse Apex Shed is strong like an ox!

When we build a shed we like to give it a good grab, slap or shake and this is a shed that is so tough…… it slapped us back. Being serious though, you will be more than happy with the durability of this shed!
6 x 8 Waltons Reverse Apex Shed: What Is The Guarantee Like?
As is the standard with Waltons sheds, you will be getting a ten year guarantee with this little tank of a shed. I know more than a few people who just toss out the literature when they get a shed, but you should have a read through it as your ten year guarantee is only valid if you treat the shed with some protective paint so be sure to paint your shed sooner than later. You do this and you will have a very good shed that is going to last you a long time.
