Hi there, I'm new to the site so hoping I am posting this is the right place. After much anticipation my new 16x8 shed arrived yesterday. Whilst it is sold enough, on closer inspection the quality of the finish and how it has been fitted together is really very poor. I am a perfectionist and would never finish a job to such a poor standard but not sure if I'm just being picky. It is just a shed after all and not sure if I'm expecting too much! I have attached a few pictures to illustrate the point and would've really grateful if someone could advise me on what to do next. I am tempted to take the whole thing down and refit it myself but this may be overkill!! Is the work as bad as I think or should I just live with it?

I've only ever bought one shed. That was about 30 years ago, and if anything it was rougher than yours. :shock:
I'd probably fix it myself rather than having their people back.

If it were me I would contact them and attach the pictures stating you are dissatisfied with the assembly and as it is not put together to a reasonable standard and ask them to rectify the slapdash work.
If they refuse then take matters further in proportion to their response, but if they offer to rectify the issues raised then take another set of pictures and satisfy yourself that the work has been re done to a acceptable standard.
As long as the base they were erecting the shed on was level and flat then there is no excuse for shoddy work.

Mike

I agree with Mike to some extent. It was more or less what I first thought. Then I thought of what a PIA it's going to be to chase them up, and have their "craftsmen" put it right.
Unless it really does want new panel or something, and that may be from the gap between the boards in that one shot.

:welcomeuhm:

I'd certainly get them back. I'm assuming you paid for the shed and fitting from the same company ?

Thanks for all the advice, it's much appreciated. I have already paid for the shed which was not cheap so as much as I hate to complain I do feel that the workmanship is a little shoddy and thatbi have a right to voice my concerns. The company did initially offer to pay for any remedial work or send someone back to rectify things although I've not heard from him since so I'm sure I will end up just correcting the issues myself. This is likely the most hassle free solution but nice to know that I'm not alone in thinking that it's been poorly fitted!
