Ease of Assembly

Most owners found the instructions excellent and the assembly relatively easy, with the exception of one who seemed to have trouble with it.  One owner thought that the foundation was made of “somewhat flimsy metal” and said if they did it again, they would have built their own with treated lumber. Another laid a cement foundation as they get a lot of rain in their area. They say “The shed and foundation size is 1″ larger all around than the plywood base that you are instructed to fit onto the foundation.”  Assembly is a one person job taking 3 hours to assemble the base and approximately 5 hours for the shed. Most owners reported that the pieces fit together well, with one owner commenting, “The shed does go up easy!..I was amazed that all the holes & screws, etc. match up perfectly.” One said that the alignment of the roof pieces was a little tricky and suggested using a thick screw driver to center the holes. Another owner said “Make sure you read the manual at each stage as it really makes it go much easier.”  The owner that had problems with his assembly said, “you must notice every dot in the drawings and make sure that you’re setting each piece correctly or you’ll have to take the shed apart back to the incorrect piece.”

Durability and Functionality

Only one owner had anything to say about this, saying that the “roof structure is very weak” and his collapsed with normal snow fall. .  This is surprising given the manufacturers claims to the shed being snow load tested up to 20 lbs. per square foot.  Going by his experience, this is not covered in the limited warranty as it is an “act of nature”.

The DuraMax 00114, 8′ x 6′ Strong lasting DuraMate Vinyl Storage Shed With Foundation Kit (00114-DM) is a vinyl shed reinforced with metal wall columns. It claims to be low maintenance, fire retardant, and able to support 900 pounds of snow. We have no doubt about the low maintenance; vinyl sheds can just be hosed off and don’t rot or rust. No one commented on the shed being fire retardant; do take note that “fire retardant” is not the same as “fire proof”. In terms of this shed’s ability to support snow, that proved not to be the case for one owner.  While most owners are pleased with the ease of assembly and with the finished product, we would caution to not let too much snow accumulate on the roof if you live in a region that gets much snow.  Though that shouldn’t be necessary, it could go a long way towards getting many years of service out of this shed.
