Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Our 10 ft.x 8 ft. DuraMax metal sheds with brown trim are strong lasting, which means they are not just strong and durable; they are also low-maintenance. They are one of the strongest steel outdoor sheds you can find today. Most metal sheds have thin, flimsy walls that dent and ding soon after you assemble them. DuraMax sheds have thicker steel walls and a special rib design for greater strength and dent resistance. Their superior strength allows us to make them wider and 8 in. taller than other metal sheds of comparable size.

  • 15% more storage space than conventional metal sheds
  • 8 in. taller than conventional metal sheds
  • Wider than conventional metal sheds of comaprable size
  • Reinforced groove walls are solid, not flimsy or wobbly
  • Walls are 20% thicker so they are much more dent resistant
  • Wide double sliding doors for mowers and other equipment
  • Door handles have eyelets for padlock
  • All the hardware is included for easy assembly, yet needs only half as many parts as conventional metal sheds
  • Backed by a 10 year limited warranty

Customer Reviews

10 ft. x 8 ft. Brown Trim Metal Shed is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from As advertized Was easier and faster to construct compared to the shed it was replacing. Metal appears to be 20% thicker and the bends in the metal (closer together than other brands) made the metal panels much stronger. Still had the metal strips that attach to the bottom edge of roof panels (that just collects debris which causes immediate rust), left those off. The doors require a level area (raised area like a table!) to be assembled but slide beautifully once assembled and installed. The shed looks great and I really like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent shed for the money I think this is a good quality shed and it should last a long time if built on a solid foundation. Floor plans were printed on the box which made it easy the put together. I used concrete blocks and 4x4 lumber for the foundation. Quality could improve by replacing the plastic door handles with metal ones and better adding better washers for the screws used on paintecsurfaces. It took about a week to put it together by myself but could've been faster if stickers on all the parts had been easier to remove.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice shed, difficult install, need foundation kit Bought this to replace a 25 year old Arrow shed of the same size, but installed on the opposite side yard. Easier to build new than trying to move an old worn out shed. I liked the more sturdier looking corrugated siding on the Duramax versus Arrow. But the Arrow is also supported at mid height and the Duramax siding spans full height so both units are equal in that regard. The siding is taller than the Arrow and the interior volume is also taller in the middle. While both the Duramax and Arrow are 8'x10' sheds, Duramax is about 4" or 5" wider and the same depth plus taller, so you get more cubic feet of storage. The doors are much wider but they don't open all the way! So the opening width is about same as Arrow. There are plastic vents front and rear. Look nice, but in retrospect not needed. Metal sheds have lots of air infiltration anyway so additional venting not needed. Plus I worry about water infiltration so I caulked around these vents. Overall, nice looking shed when it is all done. Now the cons: Let's start as one would build this...from the ground up. Foundation. Unfortunately, HD did not have a foundation kit available when I bought this otherwise I would have bought it. Too late for me, but now I see some other shed websites offer the Duramax foundation kit for only $50 and that is a huge bargain! Instead, I downloaded the Duramax manual and prepurchased pressure treated wood framing and plywood for my base. I used 4x4's instead of the 2x4's indicated in the installation manual. Much sturdier but also much heavier. The base construction took a long time...my son and I all day. Wood construction is kinda fun for me but it did take a whole day that could've been better spent. But the main problem is that the metal shed does not extend all the way out to the edge of the wood base as it would with a custom metal base. And when it rains water will just flow under the shed base bars and into the interior of the shed! Nothing in the manual about this but I recognized this shortcoming before building the shed and purchased four 10-ft long roofing drip edges at HD. These were L-shaped and 2" x 3" leg dimensions. I installed these all the way around the edge of the base by screwing at about 16" on center. Then I took pliers and bent up the inner leg 1/2" up to create a "dam" so that any water getting under the shed's base bars would not go any further and stay to the exterior. I also caulked the corners at the sheet metal miter cuts. Now you can see why having a custom made metal base for your shed is a big time saver and a big advantage. If I did it all over again, if the Duramax metal base is not available then I would definitely buy the Arrow shed with their base to match your shed. My previous Arrow shed lasted over 25 years sitting on a metal base on the ground and did not rust. (good ole Arizona). Next to the shed installation. Big blunder. You've heard it before and you'll read about it in the manual and now you'll hear it from me...make sure your base is square and level! Mine was absolutely square but not quite level; a little bit of a twist to it since one corner was a little higher than the rest. I thought our ground was level but obviously not. What happened was that the end of installation and putting the last half of the roof on (step C15 through C18) was pure agony. Nothing lined up. Not a single screw hole. I had to do some drilling to get it to fit. Each roof panel was offset about 1/2" to 3/4" from it's adjacent panel and also the ridge and the eave. What a mess but it got done. Learn from my mistake. Make is level and square! Backing up a bit, I also made a huge mistake on step B5 and B10. Very poor instructions and illustrations. The instructions say to "Insert two pieces of Top Slider into the sliding channel." This is the piece of plastic that supports your doors and slides on its supporting channel...very important. What the illustration doesn't show you is that you should NOT INSERT THE SLIDER FULLY INTO THE CHANNEL. It needs to be only HALFWAY into the channel with the back half inside the channel and the front half in front of the channel. Of course, you don't discover your mistake until YOU HAVE ALREADY BUILT THE ENTIRE SHED AND JUST PUTTING THE FINAL DOORS ON!!!! To fix this, I had to bend the front two sliding channel covers which then deformed the front two gables, bending them up nastily, remove the underlying heavy steel bracket that supports these channels (sliding channel support installed in step B11), then I could bend and warp the channels slightly to slide these plastic sliders out and then back in the proper way! Reassemble the pieces bending them back with heavy pliers pounding of hammers and pounding the front gables and trim pieces back. They looked really bad now of course. So much for a nice looking shed that I get to look at ever time I open the doors! For such a critical piece to get right at the near beginning of the project, it would have been nice and EXPECTED that the authors of the manual would have provided a better illustration of exactly how these pieces are installed properly in the channel. The illustrator obviously never put this shed together him/herself. Had a good rain the day after finishing and had some leaks from the roof. Not surprising given my self-inflicted cockeyed issues with the roof panels. However, there were also leaks on the half of the roof that fit perfectly. I resorted to caulking every single screw in the roof and the siding that I could access. I think the root cause of this is that the plastic washers that go under the screws are too hard and if your screw is not absolutely tight then you get a leak. With sheet metal work you know that once in a while you strip a screw and it will not be tight. These washers should have been something softer like a neoprene and not hard plastic. Poor choice. Should have been neoprene washers. Finally, like others mentioned, the plastic protective sheeting on the door panels is a real pain. It is so hard to get off I actually bent one of the door panels pulling it off. Unneccessary. It should not have been that hard. The sheeting must come off and it must be taken off before proceeding with the rest of the door pieces which strengthen and stiffen the doors. Prior to these pieces, the door panels are very flimsy. Enough ranting...no raving. Overall, a nice looking shed that should not have been as hard as it was to build. Errors on my part, errors on their part, but still not as happy as I should have been with this. Never had problems like this with my Arrow shed 25 years ago. The expected pluses were outdone by the minuses. I cannot recommend this shed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product for a metal shed This product appears to of better quality than most other metal buildings I have looked at. Assembly was fairly easy. I ordered brown trim and got green. I did notice the trim around the door opening was not very sturdy - could be stronger.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not something I would store anything important in. I bought this shed to raise chickens in.It has done fine but I do have it inside a barn.Putting it together is somewhat aggrevating and is a two person job.For some reason the doors came with a protective plastic that took a long time to remove,but the rest of the building does not have this plastic on it.I had planned on placing this building outdoors, but personally I think the building is too flimsy to be placed outside, especialy if trees are near by.It is serving its purpose but I would not want to place it outdoors and put a mower or something in it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from needs improvement not esy to assemble missing details in directions metal siding and roof to thin several pieces came pre dented and crinkled including the door frame. the actual dimensions are the building are not 8 x10 so if you are replacing an existing building that was on slab 8x10 it will not fit

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Duramax 8x10 Shed Everything was well labeled and the parts fit together as shown. A couple parts of the instructions were not as clear as they should have been but overall were good. The metal is lightweight and will dent easily if not handled properly. Overall a nice shed for the money.
