Andrea, Yateley, Hampshire

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
outward appearance - it looks good.
So far it appearsto be quite sturdy.
It was reasonably easy for two people to assemble
Bad points:
the floor was out of square and had to be altered for the shed to fit properly.
the roof had nearly all its nails protruding and they had to be knocked in before the felt could be put on.
one window stay was missing and the lock didn't work properly and had to be fixed.

Rob , Dereham, Norfolk

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to assemble, all instructions supplied and easy to follow, completed on my own in half a day, all assembly parts required are supplied but a few more screws and felt tacks finish it off to a higher standard. I would highly recommend the "Eco-Base", cheap, very effective and easy to lay, a must.
Bad points:
Product supplied not exactly as the picture portrays. Requires wood treatment, best carried out prior to assembly though.

David, Dunfermline Time Served Joiner

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Very large, plenty of storage space. Timber lining through out including floor and roof, a lot of sheds at this price would use sterling board type sheets. Came with base coat preservative meaning you don't have to paint immediately, although the recommendation is to do so within 3 months. Pretty easy to assemble quickly with 2 people.
Bad points:
Fundamental problems.....

Perspex is pretty thin, IMO would be pretty easy to break but I could be wrong. The instructions say to cut the felt into 4 strips for fitting, now the shed is 3 metres long and the roll of felt is 10 metres, somethings not right somewhere. As it happens you can get away with 3 strips, with the top one going over the apex. Just remember to measure it out carefully because there isn't much leeway.

Problems specific to mine.....

The two parts of the roof were not the same size meaning it was impossible to fit the felt or cover plates, and even if they were equal there was a groove running down where the tacks for the felt were meant to go, pretty shoddy to be honest. I was able to overcome this by buying wood and fixing it to either end to make up the difference. I am a joiner so it wasn't hard for me but someone without trade knowledge would have struggled a bit. The lining that made up the sides wasn't cut to equal length so when the cover plates were fixed gaps can be seen. The holes for the lock didn't line up correctly meaning i had to cut a small rebate with a chisel, again not a big deal to me, but I know what I'm doing, would someone with basic DIY skills have been able to sort it out? The main beam that spans the apex was banana shaped, with a combination of packers and the weight of the roof I sorted this out too. The end board of one of the doors was a bit bowed so it needed some extra screws. When I fixed the lock I needed to fix a bit of timber on the other door behind the keeper, otherwise it would rattle about because there is roughly a 5mm difference there.

Having said all this when the shed was finished it does look good. And maybe I am being slightly over critical because I am knowledgeable in this field, but in my honest opinion some of the faults were inexcusable and not easily fixable by your average Joe. I just hope for others that perhaps I was unlucky and it was a "Friday afternoon" shed I received and not a true indication of the usual standard.

Ian, Maidstone Against sloppy quality.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Exceedingly poor finish to the shed, parts of roof side and floor panels stain finish was incomplete. Roof tacks are nothing short of useless - suggest anybody buying this shed invest in a staple gun which takes the longest staples available. Wind blew the felt off twice before being stapled. One man van - pregnant wife unable to assist, damage to some panels.
