Disadvantages

The Suncast WRDB12000 Deck Box also poses a few negatives. There are some questions as to the quality of the deck box,  particularly on parts that do not exactly fit and which may crack or split when too much pressure is applied.

Also, there has been feedback that some of the parts that were supposed to be drilled not pre-drilled after all; there were no pilot holes so there is still a need to drill it.  Assembling the deck box need time and at least two sets of hands to finish the process; it is not a one-man.

The exterior wood of the deck box has been pretreated with a sealer. It should be noted that the deck box is not waterproof so it is important to keep the furniture in a place that will keep it away from rain and water.

Conclusion

There are several downsides to the Suncast WRDB12000 Deck Box but it cannot be denied that the deck box is a decent product for storage. Although special attention is needed in the assembly process, and the fact that the deck box is not waterproof and needs protection from the elements, the furniture does its job of storing items and looking good while doing it.
