We have now bought two of these sheds because our backyard space is limited and it couldn't accommodate something bigger, but two 8'x5' sheds fit the bill. I had issues with the first shed figuring out why the doors were too tight to close properly. It turns out the metal pieces that slide on the door where too wide. Lifetime's customer service is top-notch and they stand behind their product. We were sent the replacement pieces in about a week without any hassle. The first shed works flawlessly now and I'm just waiting on the second shipment for the second shed and expect the same problem to be resolved. I built the first shed with the doors that didn't close properly in about five hours by myself. I did have help from my 5-year-old and many breaks with him. The one thing I learned with these sheds is that it's better to use a manual screwdriver over a screw gun because the pilot holes are easily stripped if you're not careful. Also, it's better to have another person helping you and I would highly recommend it. I built the second one without the roof or doors (I'm waiting on those metal door pieces) with help and got it done in about 30 mins. Granted I've done the build before so I know what I'm doing and I didn't have to follow the directions this last time.
My lifetime shed is going on 13 years and the first parts I've had to replace are the plastic skylights. In the AZ sun that's a MAJOR THING to hold up like this. Customer service exceeded my expectations in ordering replacement parts. I highly recommended Lifetime.
I needed to order skylights and screws and washers to replace the 4 skylights on my 8x10 shed. I called customer service and was able to order them and receive the replacement parts all within about 5 days. And the cost was great: free (it was under the 10-year warranty). Great service and great company. For some reason (heat, hail, not sure what), the plastic holding the screws into the skylignt panels was deteriorating and the screws and washers were falling onto the shed floor. I have been using the shed for about 8 years.
