Much of the quality of this unit comes from the construction materials. The panels are made from steel-reinforced double-walled polyethylene, which provides superior strength and dent resistance when compared to other plastics or to vinyl. These panels and the other exposed shed surfaces are UV protected to prevent fading and cracking in the sunlight. Steel trusses add to the strength of the roof, which is also pitched in such a way to facilitate quick, effective drainage and eliminate moisture.
Just as important as the materials, though, is the function. This spacious shed offers ample headroom and interior area, storage solutions that are part of the purchase package, and a natural wood-grain look. You'll never have to worry about painting this shed, and maintenance couldn't be easier - consisting mostly of soap-and-water treatment. The drainage has already been mentioned, but the weather-resistant seams also help keep the shed's interior dry to protect all of the stuff you have to store.
In other words, inside and out and top-to-bottom, this shed gives owners everything they're looking for. Solid construction, minimum maintenance hassle, and a great value. Plus, this unit lasts and lasts and looks great the whole time. Whether to match your home, match your outdoor setup, or just to get the storage you need in a great-looking package, the Sentinel 8 X 10 Plastic Storage Shed by Lifetime is the way to go.

Make sure you get your base square; the floor that comes with it will needs to be square. Also, getting the wall panels into the floor slots was sometimes difficult. Overall it is a solid unit; directions quite clear and easy to follow. They suggest you attach building to the ground but leave it up to you how to do it. I used a wood floor, so found some Simpson Strong Ties (Lowes, Home Depot) with L shape to attach rubber floor and sides to my wood base.
