Duramax 10x15 Vinyl Shed

Pros: durability
Cons: assembly difficult, ill-fitting parts, pre-drilled parts don't line up
" I have owned vinyl sheds in the past. I have assembled vinyl, wood, and metal sheds in the past as well. I like the vinyl sheds because the are durable, never need painting, and don't rust.
This shed however was a nightmare to assemble. Right on the front of the directions it says "takes two people 4 to 5 hours to assemble". I have built many structures in my life, and I have many skills when it comes to building/assembling/repairing most anything, so I am by no means a novice. This shed took two of us 18 hours to assemble. Yes, 18 hours. That's not counting breaks. The assembly was a nightmare. Almost 700 pieces not including the screws, nuts, and bolts. We started with a solid wood foundation I built from 2x6 pt lumber and osb flooring. It was flat and level in every regard. Yet, even with the flat and level foundation many of the "pre-drilled" holes did not line up properly. Many were off by 1/8 inch to 1/2 inch, which is enough to make it very difficult to assemble.
UNTIL THE ROOF STRUCTURE IS ON the walls WILL NOT stand on their own. So unless you have 4 or 5 extra people on hand willing to hold the wall sections up until the roof structure is on (another 4-8 hours) you will most definitely have to BRACE THE WALLS UP from falling IN OR OUT until the roof structure is on. The instructions DO NOT TELL YOU THIS. The instructions tell you to put all the walls up first then build the roof structure. We had to tie the walls in place with string both inside and outside the shed to keep them from falling down. Once the roof structure is on the walls are quite solid, but not until the roof structure is on. We found this out the hard way when the first wall fell out on the ground. And I would highly advise anyone not to attempt assembling this shed if there's any wind over 10mph.
We had to re-drill many of the holes to get parts to line up properly, and I am 100% certain we assembled all the parts in the correct orientation and order. We triple checked every assemblage.
So, in closing this review, the final structure is solid and appears it will serve our purpose. But I would not ever attempt to build this shed again due to the outrageous number of parts and the ill-aligned pre-drilled holes. Also, all of the roof panels are held in place by plastic plugs with plastic "nails", and leak unless you seal each one with silicone caulk (and there's over 100 of them holding the roof panels on). For nearly $2000 we expected a much better quality product then we received. We are disappointed with our purchase, but we believe in the end it will serve our purpose. Time will tell.

good choice

Pros: light material and easy to put together
" The assembly is a lot of work, but it brought all my family together everyone came to help and we had a good time doing it. To assemble it there is a lot of good sense to it, and it only takes to put two and two together. I found a step by step video on line under duramax and it helped a lot.
Once it was finished we put the plywood and then we decided to cover it with vynil flooring and it looks great. so far it looks great and we like it.
