Derksen Portable Buildings - Derksen does not know how to measure their own buildings; 16x32 actually means 15x32
Ordered a Derksen 16x32 building from Ed Hayes at "The Yard Sale Barn" in Stockbridge, GA.I was told by Ed that the measurement for the 16 foot wide would be from the inside of the sheathing on both sides of the building (in other words the 8 inches for 2x4's had to be subtracted).
After my building was delivered and set-up i measured it like stated above and it was only 15 ft wide. Even going to the outside corners and measuring across the widest points which included the outside trim it was only 15' 2". When I spoke to Ed about this on a Thursday he said he would speak to the company and get back to me not later than the following Monday. An entire week passed and i did not hear from him so i called him back.
The answer i got was that the company (his supervisor) told him they had to measure from the end of the eaves of the roof across at the longest point....even when i did that it was only 15' 10".
Someone who has been selling the buildings as long as Ed should know for sure exactly how his company measures the buildings. Furthermore, it should be in print on their brochures how they measure the buildings. As it is, they are just ripping consumers off by telling/selling them one thing and delivering another.
The difference between a 14x32 vs a 16x32 is $1,110; that said, i figure they owe me a refund of $555.Ive bought my first and last building from this company.
This person wrote the review because of not as described of derksen portable buildings shed from Derksen Portable Buildings. Reviewer claimed that he or she lost $555 and wants Derksen Portable Buildings to issue a partial refund.
The most disappointing in user's experience was it is not the size i ordered and paid for and no compensation for building not being as ordered. Author liked the most cabin looks very nice and cabin looks good. The author asks this business to immediately contact him/ her to briefly discuss his/ her negative experience with the company.
