If you feel you can not accept these facts we suggest you DO NOT buy a Softwood timber based product from us or any supplier and opt for a manmade product such as Plastic or Metal which can be fully controlled during its process.

As we only buy in our Timber cut and nail it on to the framework, we do not do any machining, planning or processing in any form. Our Timber is purchased from a Timber merchant who in turn buys it from a Saw Mill in the Baltics so we have a chain of custody but none of this changes the fact because of its inherent nature timber will do what nature allows it to do. 

Therefor because of the reasons stated above will not carry our any Guarantee / Warranty Repair or replacement due to Naturally occuring material issues.
