Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DWRAO1 Rubbermaid Storage Units
I purchased 3 of these units. They were easy to assemble and at first I was very satisfied. However, within a week, the doors on one of the units began to warp. The doors have warped so much that they do not keep rain or debris out. I went to Home Depot and discussed this with customer service, they said the only thing they could do was provide me a new one if I disassembled the unit and returned it. That is impossible since it is too large for my car to carry. I asked if they could provide me replacement doors and they said no. Very disappointed with this item and Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BackyardBeliever Vertical Storage Shed perfect for easy accessible storage
Sturdy and easy to assemble, all our outdoor fabric folding chairs and seat cushions fit and can quickly be stored before the rain hits! Perfect compliment to our main shed which houses the smell of lawn mowers & potting soil. Looks good on our patio and diminishes the clutter, no more tossing cushions & chairs into our three season room for storage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flowergirl Perfect shed
As a florist in San Francisco, I like to store my flowers outside but have been having problems with mice and raccoons eating them. I ordered this shed and problem solved ! It is nice and sturdy, was super easy to put together and clearly fits together so snugly that the animals cannot find their way inside. I am so happy ! We do not have harsh weather here so I am anticipating using this item for many years to come. Great product .The size is absolutely perfect for my narrow outdoor area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToolTimeTony Quick Assembly Shed for Yard Storage
Shed arrived in a large cardboard box, via freight delivery. Heavy package. I moved the individual panel to the site to assemble. Was able to assemble alone, but two people are recommended and would have been easier. Need to securely lock side panels into rear panel or you could have issues down the road with the sides bowing. Took me a couple of attempts to get the panels to lock together. I found it easier to assemble the panels to the back with the unit laying horizontal, sliding the back panel on to the side panel (flat on the ground), then sliding other side panel onto the back, and then attach the floor, and stand upright the unit. Entire unit is composed of two side panels, a back panel, the floor panel, a roof panel, and two doors. Pre-drill for the screws saves time and makes assembly easier. Need a drill/driver and a Philips screw driver to assemble. Directions suggest waiting to the end to install all screws to hold the unit together, but I secured the panels to the floors and the roof to the top panels in the rear to ensure they would stay tight when I installed the doors. It took less than an hour to assemble. Attractive for a vinyl shed. About 4 x 2.5 ft – 53 cu.ft. of storage. Doors snap shut securely, and you can add a lock to security. Back panel accepts hooks at various locations. Kit came with four general purpose hooks for attaching peg board or other accessories. Size of shed is limited, nice for keeping yard tools and a few items. Im using it to expand overall capacity of existing shed, putting more high use quick acess items in this smaller shed add-on. A nice unit overall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NismoNinja Good concept, execution needs a little improvement
I got this shed to add to a much smaller Rubbermaid shed I had on site after I finally installed grass in my back yard. The smaller shed simply wasn't large enough to store my lawn mower and tools and such. I liked the look and the other shed I own has been working fine for the last several years so I figured I'd give it a try.
I purchased it at my local Home Depot but I had to rent their truck to get it home - there was no way I could fit it in anything I owned. Once it was home and I schlepped it to the back yard my father and I were able to assemble it in about an hour.
Assembly was pretty straight forward. Read the directions and make sure you understand not only the words but also the pictures included. We mistakenly 'popped' the back into place before we connected the 2nd side. This caused us to figure out how to get the 2nd side in place so it locked. Finally got a BFH (big friggin hammer) and managed to marry everything properly. Several people recommended predrilling the holes for the screws and I'll agree - drilling small tap holes make it SO much easier to snug everything up and secure it with the included screws. I also needed to use a little construction adhesive on the latch for the lock as it wasn't held in place very securely and would pop out whenever I closed the door. Now it is nice and tight.
The main drawback I have with this is how poorly utilized the space is. There are no holders for shelves (as there are in my smaller one). I would have liked a shelf at the top of the shed to hold smaller items. Rubbermaid did install pre-formed slots to hold tool holders, cord organizers, etc. That's great, but they are also $15 - $20 each and there is still a lack of flexibility.
I happened to have a new Rubbermaid 'fast track' system that I was planning on putting in the garage. I figured there HAD to be some way I could mount it to this shed to maximize utilization. Here is what I did:
Cut 2 3/4 inch off of ONE side of the track system (should be just inside the 3rd mount hole on the fast track)
Place the 4 (included) pegboard mounting hooks in the 4 slots along the back of the shed. Hold the FastTrak mount into place and mark the holes that the pegboard mounting hooks line up with (I used the 'bottom' holes).
Using a 1/4 inch drill, enlarge the holes on the FastTrak you marked earlier.
Screw the pegboard mounting hooks to the enlarged holes then proceed as normal with the FastTrak system. This allows me MUCH more flexibility on what I hang, where I hang it, and how space is used.
I will still get a couple of the accessories for the sides of the shed just so I can make sure everything is up and organized.
Overall I think this is a good shed. Good quality, easy to put together, and should last a good, long while. I like the larger size for more space, but I think Rubbermaid just missed the mark by not having a 'FastTrak' type system already in place for use in these sheds.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Justintime If you want water inside than this is for you. .
First rain after assembly and to my surprise there was water in side of it . The doors do a poor job at keeping water out as does the roof . The water pours off the roof and runs down the front of the doors and pretty much covers the whole floor inside with water so if you don't want your stuff wet and that was my point In Purchasing this shed then don't buy one unless you plan o. Building a real roof over it .

This shed isn't durable or sturdy at all, the sides keeps popping loose from the back panel if you lean anything against it. I didn't realize it was doing the so all my stuff got wet when it rained. To secure it I had to mount corner bracket.
