Trading Terms & Conditions
Building sizes are approximate, based on external dimensions. Measurements are nominal imperial. As timber is sourced in metric there can be small differences in actual building sizes. If accurate/specific 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.
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 are 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, displayed 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 as standard, unless otherwise stated. We recommend you treat the building annually with a Solvent based preservative. 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 floors and all/any opening components are treated if treatment is requested.
We guarantee the building for a full 12 months (all 4 seasons), 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 particularly wet weather. Adverse weather conditions may detach roofing felt which can only be deemed as an “Act of God”.
If you have arranged for us to deliver the building please advise us of any problems with access/parking. We will need to know if the building has to go through a house or over a fence. Should the building, tools and equipment need to be taken through the property it is your responsibility to ensure a clear access is made free of any furniture and personal household items. You may wish to lay protective floor coverings. Standard sized building panels may be too large to go through a house and we may be able to manufacture in smaller sections. If the building needs to go over a fence or is some distance from the delivery vehicle we may need additional staff and equipment to unload, which may incurr a charge.
We will contact you in advance to arrange a delivery date and approximate time when your goods will be delivered. If you are not at home we can leave the goods for you at a pre-arranged position within your property. We cannot be held responsibile for the security of the items whilst there is knowone available to sign for delivery. Please ensure clear access to the site.
Any shortages or damages MUST be reported to us within 7 days from date of delivery. Any claims outside of this time period will not be entertained.
ERECTION & BASE REQUIREMENTS
Unless arranged with us prior to delivery and erection of your building the base is your responsibility. A base for a timber building must be flat. It should be checked with a level, as unfortunately even the most trained eye cannot be accurate enough. The base need not necessarily be any larger than the building size. The space/gap between the new shed and any boundary/hedge/wall needs to be sufficient for maintenance of the building. Your new timber building can be positioned tight to walls, fences and hedges should you prefer, BUT please allow for Roof overhangs. This will be a minimum of 4”.
A deposit is required when ordering one of our products. The balance is payable upon delivery/erection. Goods remain the property of Shed Scene until paid for in full.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
We do not accept liability for personal injury claims whilst our staff are on-site. Please keep at a safe distance whilst they are constructing your building to ensure that you are not injured by way of falling panels, nails, glass etc. This is for your own safety.
