Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this shed fairs across the market.

Guarantee

On a metal shed, the guarantee that the manufacturer offers is usually a very good indicator of the quality of the building. The longer the guarantee the more the manufacturer believes in the quality of the building they have produced. Typically we see manufacturer guarantees for metal Sheds ranging from zero right up to a 30 years guarantee.

This metal shed comes with a 10 years guarantee. Most metal shed come with a 10 years guarantee (36.47% of them) [1].

For this particular brand (Rowlinson) they offer 12 [2] different types of guarantees on their metal sheds, with the 10 years guarantee on this being the only they offer. The 10 years guarantee is found on 50.00% of Rowlinson metal sheds [3]. It is great that this shed was given one of the highest guarantees offered by the brand, and this shows the manufacturer has a lot of faith in the overall quality of this part of their product range.

When looking at comparable 10′ x 5′ metal sheds (we found 561 of them) the most popular guarantee length offered by manufacturers was 10 years [4]. 46.52% came with a missing guarantee, 37.08% came with a 10 year guarantee, 10.87% came with a 15 year guarantee, 1.60% came with a 1 year guarantee, 1.07% came with a 30 year guarantee, 0.71% came with a 3 year guarantee, 0.53% came with a 12 year guarantee, 0.53% came with a 5 year guarantee, 0.53% came with a 25 year guarantee, 0.36% came with a 20 year guarantee, 0.18% came with a limited lifetime guarantee and 0.00% came with a lifetime guarantee.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 sheds that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.
