Specification & Warranty
Building sizes are approximate, footprint sizes are based on external dimensions, heights are based on internal dimensions. Measurements are nominal imperial. As timber is sourced in metric there can be small differences in actual building sizes. If accurate dimensions are of importance please call for clarification. Dimensions do not include Roof overhang.
Timber is a natural product which is subjected to different environmental conditions, i.e. movement, colour variation, shrinkage, expansion, warping & splits. We cannot accept any responsibility for these changes. All summerhouses are supplied with wood doors and windows which are slightly darker than cladding in appearance.
Except where stated otherwise, all buildings are supplied with a floor, 3mm thick Horticultural Glass, Trims, Fixings & Standard Mineral Felt. Extra Heavy Duty Workshops & Carlton Summerhouses are supplied with Premium Mineral Felt. Playhouse windows fitted with Safety Acrylic/Perspex.
Product specifications & prices were correct at time of print. Do not assume all buildings are produced in the same way as different sizes can affect the manufacture. The position of Floor Runners can also vary and should not be assumed to be the same as models photographed, design or shown on other buildings. If this is important to you then please contact us before the building is ordered/supplied. In line with our programme of continued product development we reserve the right to make minor modifications to the product or specification, without prior notice.
All buildings are supplied un-treated unless otherwise stated. The building will need to be treated annually with a Solvent based wood protector. We offer a range of 7 different colours. The Web Site and Catalogue illustrate our range of colours but these should be used as a rough guide only. We can provide colour swatches for better accuracy colour matching on request. All external walls, both sides of floor and all/any opening components are treated if treatment is requested. See page 90 for further information including 7 colour choices.
It is the responsibility of the customer to seek any planning consent/permission necessary. Some common problem areas include; if your property is a listed building or in a conservation area, if you plan to erect the building within 5m of your house, the building should not be nearer to the public highway than the house, if the total area of your garden covered by any buildings (excluding house) exceeds 50% of total garden area.
We guarantee the building for a full 12 months, provided it has been correctly erected by the customer. Please note this guarantee does not cover ex-display buildings which are sold as seen. Please remember the weather conditions affect shrinkage/expansion of the timber and you may find that doors may be tight/stiff to open during particular wet weather. Adverse weather conditions may detach roofing felt or cause other extra-ordinary damage to your building which can only be deemed an “Act of God”. We recommend you check if your building is covered by your household insurance in case of storm damage etc. The roof must not be stood on.
