I have a metal shed that is on its last legs .. I want to disassemble it and put up a new one. Does anyone know of a somewhat easy to take these things down or had any experience? If you have experience I'd like to know about any problems I might run into.
I'd lubricate every fastener you can find the day before you take it down, then use an impact driver or a hammer drill with the appropriate bit to remove the screws. Some of them might be to rusty to get apart, and you might have to do some bashing with a hammer to separate the panels to where they're manageable.
I'd keep your camera ready, you never know what critters you might roust doing this!
So, X, did you take it down yet? How did it go? Hopefully all went well and you got some cash out of it.
About a month ago we took down our old metal shed. A sledgehammer and crowbar was all we really needed. A drill/screwdriver to remove the bolts that held it to the cement pad after we took it down. After it was on the ground it was easy to fold the pieces into thirds. Then we walked on them to flatten them. It was amazing to me how flimsy the metal was, even though it was old. It came apart so super easy.
Although, in the process of all of this I did get a cut. A scratch really, but it bled like someone had cut my leg off. I ended up having to get a tetnis shot, which now includes a whooping cough vaccination. How about that?
