Default Rubbermaid 3713 shed

This shed can blow over. If it does, Rubbermaid will not help you.
They do not warranty the shed READ THE FINE PRINT.
Mine is damaged, the gable pieces cost $47 each to replace. Any ideas
to help put it back together less expensively?

You should have read the installation instructions which are quite
explicit that the shed needs to be securely anchored or it will blow
over.

Hmm. The "Assembly Instructions" reads:
---
OPTIONAL STEP:
If desired, recessed anchor locations (4 places) can be used to anchor the
shed floor to a foundation
---

I can't find anything entitled "Installation instructions."

On the other hand, almost anything will "blow over" if huffed on hard
enough. Some things will even "blow away" (i.e., Galveston).

18 wheelers blow over. Houses blow over. A cheap shed is supposed to blow
over.

That is very interesting. I put up the larger Big Max a couple of
years ago and the printed instructions mentioned anchoring the shed to
keep it from blowing over. Obviously a narrower, smaller shed of the
same height and depth will have an even greater propensity for blowing
over. I wonder why they would omit that...unless it's only in the
printed instructions. Doesn't make sense either way.

Tying any shed down makes sense if you're in areas subject to high
winds. There are only two ways to learn this. The OP learned it the
hard way.
