Since Sears saw fit to truncate my previous article on the SR1010 [because it was too long], and won't allow an additional to that shed's commentary to complete the article, I am submitting the remainder of the article here....ZZZERO48 4. About 5 percent of the self-tapping screws don’t “self-tap”. Don’t worry about it. Just throw them away. There are plenty of screws. There are also plenty of nuts and bolts – so if you drop them in the dirt, it isn’t a problem. The washers are a different story. I used them in places where they (probably) should have been used and didn’t recover dropped washers from the dirt…and consequently ran out in the last steps [door assembly]. 5. The gables should be erected in calm conditions also, but it is not as critical. When putting up the roof beams, and working by yourself, I suggest putting up the side beams first. That allows you to spam the side beams with a couple of 2x4’s to support the (twice as heavy) center beam while you connect it. 6. Unless you have some type of crane, or a savvy (and brave) little kid that your wife will allow you to get on the roof (on a piece of plywood held by another person) – there is no way that you can get the bolts into the center of the ridge cap. But there is another solution. Connect to two ridge caps together with bolts and nuts, place it, and then make the rest of the connections (which you can reach – with a person inside to hold the nuts). The center bolts will stick down far enough in the holes so you can get another nut on them – especially if you hold some counter pressure from the outside with a long board. 7. I might note that placing the building directly on pressure treated lumber voids the warrantee, as stated in the instructions. My ten year old shed has been sitting on pressure treated lumber with no evidence of deterioration. 8. Others have said that leaking is a problem. It doesn’t rain much here - but it does rain…and I’ve seen no signs of leakage. 9. If bolt and screw holes (with a little wiggling) don’t line up, it’s not their fault – it’s your fault. Go back and re-examine what you have done. 10. Also, you will put a dent or two in the panels during construction. It’s unavoidable. Just knock them out with a piece of wood. 11. I hope this helps…zzzero48
Bought this for my son and it collapsed under the weight of snow. Total waste of money paying for it and time erecting it. The warranty only covers rust and not anything else. Beware.
Order the product 2 months ago and never received it terrible customer service. Totally disappoint with Sears, never again.
I could rate this item correctly but it never arrived and no one knows what happened to it. I call whatever 3rd world country is screening their calls only to find out that I have to give it a full 7 days after it was supposed to arrive before they will track it, Then their solution is to cancel the order and redo it!!! No guarantees anyone can be reached that knows where it is. ****** here I come....
TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERIBLE PURCHASE OF MY ENTIRE LIFE! Don't even want to give SEARS one star for this order.
-- I had been chat with SEARS many times... They just said "will contact with store manager then get back to me". BUT THEY NEVER DID. After completely a month of back order, they suggest me to cancel this order since the foundation has been done. This order cost me a lot money for tools and foundation from SEARS. I am very upset and disappointed.
Never received the item I purchased . And the customer service I got was horrible. Will never purchase from sears again !
