Quite honestly, I think it’s a stunner and my friends agree. Let’s find out what the reviews say:
What do Reviews say about Keter’s High Store?
This is perhaps the hardest review I’ve ever written to offer helpful suggestions regarding feedback. I’ve just read 58 reviews from one supplier in the UK and plenty of feedback from other stores yet the reviews all seem to come back with similar remarks.
Apart from the minority receiving squished parts due to poor handling and delivery in the USA, the only issue regards the amount of screws it takes to assemble.
Most assemblers, me included suggest using a power screwdriver set on a low torque setting will speed up the build considerably yet this High Store only takes 1 – 2 hours to construct reading between the averages, so for the longevity of use this unit delivers is well worth the time.
The ability to add more shelving is an issue for a few. If this is you – Measure the internal measurements below and consider installing free standing shelves as this will overcome the problem, a preferred option for many.
One family opted to use the High Store as a storage facility in their garage for tools and gardening equipment resulting in representing the most organised garage, delighted with their purchase – Great idea!
Wonderful reviews flood back regarding the low maintenance facade, the closure and stainless steel locking system whilst the paintable surface welcomes the dream for many to splash some colour and add that glimmer of charm to their garden whilst many opt to keep the sublime silvery sheen as is. It’s all down to personal preference.
I haven’t read one remark regarding water entering into this unit, feedback supplied from those who have had this High Store subject to heavy rainfall.
If you are the unfortunate one to receive anything damaged on delivery, take my advice – Phone ’em up and get it replaced. Trying to construct squished parts usually presents nightmares trying to align. This is a suppliers issue, not yours.
Keter High Store – Features & Assembly
Keter’s High-Store Low Maintenance Facade
Stand back to admire the lustrous sheen the silvery grey facade emanates, move up close and you’re represented with a rough textured wooden grained effect to the touch.
Two panels reinforced with a centred ribbed structure provide stability and rigidity to the final build whilst the added benefit of a tongue & groove edging conformation simplifies assembly.
Manufactured from polypropylene resin regards Keter’s new-age blueprint design providing weather protection to the facade.
Durability and weather-resistance are the essential key factors for outdoor storage protection, the polypropylene resin make-up provides built-in weatherproof defence against damp conditions whilst UV stabilisation armours the surface against splitting and colour fade when sunburn rays attack.
The resin panels eliminate upkeep duties, virtually maintenance free this facility escapes re-varnishing duties associated with nourishing wood for protection, only requiring a simple wash down when dirty to restore the spotless finish.
Make a Statement to Your Surroundings
The DUOTECH™ resin design is unique to Keter, accomplishing the first resin style shed that can be painted, a preferred option for many looking to add a statement of the colour and what a vibrant colour transformation this store transfigures into – No wonder it’s becoming so popular.
Flat Roof – Concerned?
Initially I was concerned with the topping of this High Store as flat roofs always ring alarm bells with me but my worries soon diminished when I realised the roof comes in one sheet which is of priority importance for my concerns.
The roof is manufactured from polypropylene resin which is weatherproof, durable and impermeable to rainwater.
The roof has ridges built within which slot into the walls before screwing in to fasten to the walled surround, accomplishing a sturdy overall construction with the advantages of a tight seal whilst the roof’s slight extension beyond the facade walls avoids the occurrence of rainfall entering in, it’s very well designed.
High-Store’s Heavy Duty Built-In Floor
Keter certainly haven’t scrimped on the floor’s quality which surprised me for a unit this size – Another thumbs up here!
It’s heavy duty design makes it ideal for storing weighty items whilst the floor is purposely designed to subsist demanding pressures however the longevity of the hard-wearing surface will only suffice if the High Store is stood on solid level foundations.
The floor, like the roof comes in one polypropylene resin sheet, waterproof plus with added defence built-in to survive the heat makes this facility a great storage solution suited for all climates.
The only fixing required to make-up the floor regards the sloped threshold which aids the duty of wheeling items in and out.
Embedded within the floor are anchor points for securing the shed down into the solid foundations which is advisable especially for a unit this tall and slim. You are required to purchase foundation screws separately dependant on your base material, either wood or concrete screws.
Inside Keter’s High Store
Once you open the doors the entirety of storage held is within arms reach as it’s only 0.66 metres deep yet the 1.3 metre width provides a storage solution capable of holding a whole host of possibilities.
A 1.76 metre height aids the benefit of storing long handled garden tools and ladders, check the measurements below for your requirements.
Free standing shelves can be an alternative for extending storage options further, a popular option for many however you are provided with shelf supports if you wish to add two of your own shelves.
Thick plywood purchased from a local hardware store make ideal shelves for a unit this size. Cut them to the required width and length, measurement details are represented in the instructions.
Where the walls adjoin to the roof and floor, a sealed unit ensures no gaps are present for rainwater and pests to enter thus preventing the outside environment blowing debris inside.
Keter High-Store’s Quality Doors & Fittings
Wide double doors spanning the width of the High Store deliver wonderful access, once opened acquiring storage is a non issue, everything is within arms grasp.
The doors are manufactured from the same polypropylene resin make-up as the walls providing an enchanting silvery glisten all round the facade however they provide the same weather protection and durability qualities whilst their paintable surface makes the High Store all-round fully customizable with the colour of your choice.
Chrome hinges are fitted to enable a sweet opening and closure enhancing quality whilst the door handle is fitted with a clasp designed around a stainless steel locking system to which a padlock secures. Padlock not included. Many admire the security advantages for a facility this size.
The Added Benefit – Low Maintenance!
My passion – Low maintenance. This High Store only requires a wash down when it becomes grimy to bring it back to the same pristine finish the day it was assembled.
No more deterioration issues to deal with, no more re-varnishing or re-staining and no more re-roofing either. A huge bonus, saving costs and time associated with maintaining duties when comparing to the wooden variety of High Stores.
When it becomes ingrained with grime, a couple of cups of white vinegar into a hot soapy bucket of warm water and wiped away with a cloth or soft brush usually does the trick. Generally a light hose down is all this High Store requires.
If the paintable route is taken, colour fade will eventually happen however a quick clean followed by a re-coat is all the maintenance entails without having to deal with decaying issues.

Assembling the Keter High Store
The no1 rule regarding assembling Keter’s High Store relates to preparing solid level foundations, either wood, concrete or paving is ideal. Obeying by this rule ensures the parts line up plumb to accomplish an efficient assembly, eliminates leaning pressures, the doors swing works correctly whilst the longevity of the hard wearing floor serves just as described.
It’s always advisable to anchor the shed down into the base through the anchor points embedded within the built-in floor. Although you will probably be carrying weight in this shed it is tall therefore anchoring down into the foundations ensures stability against adverse weather.
Anchoring screws have to be purchased separately, their type is dependant on your base material, wood or concrete.
The build takes roughly an hour or two and requires two people. The clear instructions receive wonderful remarks, it’s quite straightforward to assemble.
A power screwdriver set on a low torque is a well favoured option for most, there are quite a lot of screws. Inspect the delivery for any broken and missing parts. Don’t construct the unit if this materialises, ask for a replacement.
The build starts off by fixing the sloped threshold to the floor followed by the wall supports and resin sheets that make up the facade, they simply slot into the grooves within the floor and secure with screws to the supports.
The roof then follows and this slots into the walls, secured with screws to provide sturdiness.
The doors are then made up and inserted into the architraves followed by anchoring the floor down into the foundations.
Fitted shelves are an option and the measurements are detailed in the instructions. Thick plywood makes ideal shelving for a unit this size, they only require cutting to size.
Watch the video above, towards the end shows the assembly. It’s a very straightforward procedure.
And that’s your Keter High Store built – Happy days, Enjoy!
