Do you deliver to my area and is it free?
Delivery is for mainland UK only, The building will be delivered to the address provided at the time of the order unless otherwise specified.
Free delivery is to the below area, anywhere outside of this radius please contact us for delivery price.
What type of base do I need?
It is essential that your base is prepared correctly, we require your base to be solid, flat and most importantly level, leaving enough space around the building for installation and maintenance. Bases that are not level can affect the opening of doors/windows or cause the building to twist. We would recommend you use concrete, slabs, flags or alternatively we offer a tanalised timber frame base service, which is suitable for any surface, and we do all the work for you! If you are not sure regarding bases, please call our sales office on 01484 723757
What access is needed to install my building?
Fair and reasonable access must be given on the day of installation. Please bear in mind that all sizes are external but do not include the roof/overhang, please allow at least 6-8 inches all the way around the building for the roof overhang. Please check any obstacles that will prevent access, including height and width. Certain size buildings will not fit through a standard house door, through a ginnel or under an arched gate for example. We do NOT under any circumstances carry buildings over roofs, carports, outdoor buildings, fences, walls or over long distances due to insurance purposes. It is your responsibility to inform us upon ordering, of any issues regarding access to your garden.
What is included in the price?
All our prices are fully inclusive of VAT, delivery and fitting. All buildings have a tanalised treatment which protects against rot and insect infestation (this is not a water repellent treatment). A further coat of oil based water repellent must then be applied within 2 weeks of delivery by the customer.
I need a specific size. Can you help?
What is Tanalised?
Pressure-treated wood or tanalised timber uses a high-pressure tank to force the preservative chemicals deep into the timber quickly. Timber is loaded into the treatment vessel, hydraulic pressure is applied to the timber, forcing the Tanalith E wood preservative deep into the structure of the timber.
Does tanalised timber require maintenance?
Yes, we recommend the use of a high-performance oil-based treatment. We offer our own high-performance oil-based treatment which is available to buy in tins. We do not recommend the use of water-based treatments – no liability will be accepted if the incorrect type of treatment is applied to the building.
