Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by one Not bad for the price
Prior to purchase, I read many reviews about this product. Most of the complaints said the instructions were poor, the assembly was difficult, and/or the holes didn't line up. The only issue I found with the instructions concerned the door assembly. The instructions and illustrations had the front of the door facing up when it makes more sense to have the inside of the door facing up since that's where you're attaching the hardware. Assembling the shed is complex and time consuming and is best done by 2 or more people although I built mine alone by using ladders and saw horses to support the sides. To tighten the hard to reach screws, I taped heads to the wall on the outside and tightened the nut from the inside. To ensure that the holes line up, It's necessary to keep the frame level and square at all times. Once it's level, it's will probably remain so. However it's very easy to knock it out of square. Don't skip the step of measuring assemblies as they are completed and verify the structure is square after each step. If all else seems correct and there are still holes out of line, it's better to use brute force to put them in place rather than drilling new holes. It's not a simple task but if you take it slow, follow the instructions carefully, and measure diligently it should go up without any major issues. The finished shed looks great and is already full on junk.

Decent instructions and construction for the price. Some points should be more strongly emphasized, for example the orientation of the walls can be wrong because of the shelf holes and then when you reach the end of the construction, it's too late. Some holes completely wrong, aren't even close to lining up. Construction time ridiculously long, like 2 days.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by banana19 The roof is leaking and bad quality
I bought this shed a month ago. Need 2 person and a big struggle to assemble.
The rainy season arrived, the shed roof leak thru the screw holes, the washer does't hold back the water. There is a gap between the roof and the top of the side wall, water come into the shed. I had to cover the roof with a plastic to keep out the water.

This was the second time I purchase this model of Arrow shed so I was familiar with the assembly process and the shed was assembled without any problems. I gave average ratings because the wall panels got badly scuffed up in the box during transit. As a result, this shed looks older and more weathered than the one I've had for 4 1/2 years. The packaging needs a lot of improvement to protect the parts during the shipping / delivery process.

I purchased this same shed about 12 years ago and recently replaced it withwhat I thought was an identical model. The product number and name were the same, but the quality of the new unit was significantly lower. The base frame is flimsy and the instructions are poorly written. Home Depot did a fine job, so my comlaint is with the product. At the reduced price of $377, it is a fair value. Two weeks ago I paid $419.

My husband and I love our shed. It has held up in the worst of weather and through the constant banging and bumping it gets from all the garden tools and tractor. We have not experienced any leaking and the floor keeps out all the lovely digging critters (skunks, squirles and opossums) in our area.
There has been no color fading, it cleans up easily with a garden hose and is big enough to hold shelves for flower pots and hand tools, a tractor, tiller, and all our hoses, shovels, rakes, yard chairs and the toys from the sand box.
The only drawback for me was our difficulty in putting it together. Now that it is up we will never take it down.

This shed is not for novices. The instructions are really difficult to follow, particularly the poor diagrams. Be prepared to drill a lot of your own holes when the the alignment is off. Certain parts of the assembly do require 2 persons; the rest can be handled alone.
If parts meant to be overlapped were cut to fit together assembly would be much easier.
The two front corners were dented although the box didn't look crushed. Possibly the steel shipping band was applied too tightly.
About 12 hrs. to complete; would have been quicker if the directions had better diagrams, especially the sections that needed to be overlapped - eg. door header.
