The rear 90 degree corners of the box are thin plastic full height “hinges” that I expect are the weakest links in the structure. I fully expect them to fail early-on and require some sort of reinforcement of the back corners. It would have been much stronger if the corners were moulded into the panels. I expect that the mfger chose the hinge method to allow for packaging the parts in a thinner box by straightening the corners flat than would be required if the corners were moulded square. I used a heat gun to warm the plastic before bending the hinges in 45*F weather so they wouldn’t break.
The roof is is my biggest disappointment. Yes, it looks good with the moulded-in wooden shingle effect. It sheds the rain water off to the front when it is closed. But, I discovered that if the roof is opened with water on it, or in the rain, so that the bottom ends of the “shingles” are now pointing up (the shingles inverted) that the raised bottom ends now prevent the water from flowing off the back of the roof. The shingle ends direct the water to the left and right sides of the roof where it then runs around the roof’s side edges, flows under the roof side edges, (by surface tension) and drips on your stuff inside the shed. My older shed doesn’t have the shingle effect and raising the roof allows it to shed the water off the back (like a lean-to) with no dripping inside the shed. I’ll need to devise some sort of drip edge to solve the problem with the “shingled” roof. I will update this review with pictures of how I do it.
The rest of the assembly went fairly well. I needed a rubber mallet to drive the panels to lock them into the base, as is mentioned in the instructions.
I guess it took me about three hrs to do it alone where two people are recommended in the instructions. I could do another in less than an hour, so the learning curve is fast.
The top blew right off in a strong wind. Came right off the hinges, screws came right out of the plastic. Somehow it still manages to be functional for now, but it’s not right at all. You HAVE to put something through the lock or the top can blow off. I did not want to lock up my garbage… how silly. I’ve put in a message with Suncast’s customer service requesting a new top and will update with what they do.
Aside from that glaring problem, it’s a very good shed. Holds my big garbage cans just fine and everything but the lid feels sturdy and looks nice.
Update: They won’t send me a new top unless I can find my dated receipt AND a warranty card or front of the user’s manual. (?! Why? The receipt should certainly be enough.) I didn’t save either of those things after I saw that it was set up and looked fine. Huge disappointment.
Update #2: Wait, no. Even if I find my receipt AND warranty card AND user’s manual, they still won’t send me a replacement top because they say it’s “weather related.” WIND. Not a hurricane, not a tornado, but wind. Apparently I’m not allowed to use this shed when it’s windy. ALSO– the top is now warping. All four corners are turned upward, allowing bugs to get in. Keep in mind I’m in NY, my property is shaded, and it’s been a mild summer. Crazy. Newer reviews on other sites mention the same problem with the top warping over time. I removed another star for this.
