General Timber Information
As we all know Wood is a natural occurring product and as such is subject to environmental changes that are beyond any human control . Extreme changes in Temperature and bad weather conditions may well cause a reaction within the naturally occurring Timbers Structure.
Signs of boards shrinking or expanding may well occur and are perfectly natural and does NOT form part of any guarantee . Rough Sawn Timbers and machined / planed Timbers may well show signs shrinkage , expand or even split. This can NOT be controlled in any way and something you will just have to accept with the general timer grades now days. If you are looking of a none shrinking or boards that do not have any of these features you will need to be looking at buying a Cedar Wood or Hardwood shed which are many , many times the price you pay for a soft wood building .
If you are looking for or are expecting a building that does not have any of these potential defects we suggest you buy a plastic or steel building and do not order a timber building from either our selves or other suppliers as you will not get what you are expecting due to timbers naturally occurring features.
Any further advise on this issue please email and we will be more than pleased to help if we can.
None of the above will affect the overall structural strength of the Garden Building or the products general guarantee.
It is simply something you will have to except as being a Naturally occurring Process beyond Human Control . We obviously select the best timbers at the time of manufacture but if these events occur it will be due to Natural Reasons and no reflection on our Workmanship or Products.
The above issues will not constitute the need for any refunds in full or partial as they naturally occurring events beyond the manufactures or suppliers control. No refunds will be issued or replacements buildings provided against the above . Please do not buy a timber building if you can not accept this facts and select a man made product instead .
