Before putting the shed together, it requires a sturdy foundation to be built. Suncast recommends putting your Glidetop shed on a concrete slab foundation or wood-frame foundation. For a wooden foundation you will need two 2x6x8 sheets of plywood for the sides, four 2x6x10 for the ribs of the shed and one 3/4x4x8 sheet of plywood. As long as you make sure to take your time and not make any mistakes this is more than enough wood for the foundation.

Suncast has instructions on how to build the perfect foundation. A quick visit to Suncast’s website and you’ll be able to download a pdf file of the instructions which gives you the chance to build the foundation even before your Glidetop shed arrives.

Also, durability is definitely an issue as some of the parts aren’t the best quality and manufactured poorly with no replacements on the Suncast website.
That being said, the Suncast Glidetop shed is definitely a great investment despite its few downfalls it proves to be a very good and efficient shed worth every penny.
