  1. Superior Quality Building

    Posted by M. McClain on 27th Jul 2016

    After doing a lot of searching and researching I found Backyard Builders had the best building for the price and for my needs. It was installed right on time and with a two man crew it was done by noon. I am very pleased with the quality of the material and the workmanship. I highly recommend Backyard Builders!

  2. Product review

    Posted by Harry Gibney on 27th Jul 2016

    Install was excellent. Installer was over worked for one person build. Took a week to finish for him and he needed help from my son for a couple of things that he needed to do. Couple of minor issues with parts not fitting as designed, but installer worked it out for us. Some modification needed. All in all, we got what we wanted.

  3. Good shed, but some challenges

    Posted by Michael on 27th Jul 2016

    We are happy with the shed, now that it is installed. The process to get it installed was a bit of a problem, and I would recommend that you get commitments on the installation.

    The only part we didn't like were the vents. We purchased four, but when we saw them we threw them away. Junk. Put in a ridge vent instead.

    The part about the process that made me very happy was the installer Phil. I had a lot of confidence in him, and appreciated everything he did.

    If you are planning to put a riding mower in the shed, note that the doors wide open are 60" which I did not see. My mower has a half inch clearance on each side.

  4. Rocky start, excellent finish

    Posted by Brenda Delise on 27th Jul 2016

    We had issues with the local contractor not being licensed in our suburb but when they actually made it out and built our shed, we were very impressed. She'd is solid, great duality, built well with no leaks. In the end we were very happy with our choice!

  5. Good Building

    Posted by Backyard Buildings Customer on 28th Dec 2015

    The building is very good. The person who installed it took his time and we have had no issues with it.

  6. Product good, Service okay

    Posted by Backyard Buildings Customer on 28th Dec 2015

    The shed is good and strong, but shortly after it was built I realized that I missed a couple of vents that were not installed. Called customer service a couple of times, never got responses. Got busy with life, gave up. Check your shed closely. Once the money changes hands and the product is installed, you may not hear from them again except to do a survey like this,

  7. Great Product

    Posted by David Carmola on 26th Oct 2015

    Built well. Sturdy. Recommend highly.

  8. Yes, if he preps it

    Posted by Sergey on 25th Sep 2015

    Yes, if he preps it properly, as he said. ie pseursre clean, penetrating oil based primer and two coats of a good quality paint, it will most definately last upwards of 15 years. The only thing with paint is, no matter how good the paint is, it's the pigment that fades. So if you go with a bold color, you are looking at it fading before any kind of paint failure. Anything containing yellows and reds will likely fade faster than others. GL

  9. Shed & Installation

    Posted by Ms. Satterwhite on 6th Jul 2015

    Love my shed & can't wait to decorate it with finishing touches. The man who installed it, introduced himself as "Zak". He was very polite & professional. I am pleased with his work & highly recommend him to others purchasing your sheds.

  10. Great value for money

    Posted by David on 30th Jun 2014

    I searched for 2 months, and contacted numerous shed companies before settling on Backyard Buildings. I'm so glad I did. I couldn't be happier with my building!!
    A quality build, and professional assembly team.
