Royal Outdoor Shed Winchester 8 x 10

Royal Winchester Shed 10x8
I purchased this Royal Winchester 10x8 shed at Lowes in Bradenton Florida for $848.00 in November of 2006 and installed it on January 19 2007. The reason it took so long to be installed was that we were having an in-ground pool added to our back yard and the pool contractor was pouring the concrete for the shed foundation when he poured the pool deck.
About two years after installation and following all manufacturers instructions for priming and painting, the doors are falling apart due to the wood cores rotting.
So it is a great shed but why did they put wood core doors on a vinyl maintenance free shed?
Anyway, I was talking to my wife about the doors rotting and she said maybe there is a warranty on the shed, so I went into our records and looked at the owners manual, and sure enough the shed has a 10 year warranty. I called the 800 claims line and I found out that the Royal shed line had been sold to Barrette Outdoor Living, they asked me if I had painted the doors and if I could supply them with pictures of the damage and the receipt which I did.
Within a couple hours they notified me that the new doors would be arriving in 10 days. Hats off to a company that cares enough about a consumer to act so quickly.
