8.1 Timber Products:
You accept that wood is a natural material. It differs from man-made materials each piece of timber will have grains and knots which will vary. Being a natural product wood will react to changes in atmospheric conditions. Wood will expand and contract. Most of this movement is across the grain of the wood so height dimensions will vary according to moisture content. All height dimensions are exclusive of roof insulation and at 15% moisture content of the wood. Some splitting of the timber may occur as it expands and contracts with changes of humidity and temperature. Many cabin kits will show some warp and twist in boards. This is more pronounced in thicker boards. It is common to see some damage to tongues and grooves on boards when unpacking.
Garden Sheds and other Sectional Buildings may allow the ingress of water through wall panels in the first weeks after delivery. This is owing to the wall boards contracting in their dry stored environment. The wood will go through a natural process of regularization where the timber will absorb moisture from the surrounding atmosphere, the wood will slowly expand and any ingress should cease. If the process continues after the early weeks then the solution is to use a mastic sealant between the boards and in the joints. It is essential that the wood is treated both inside and outside as this will reduce any ingress of water and will protect the wood under any mastic that may be used.
The above processes are perfectly natural and do not affect the integrity of the timber or of the structure it is used in and therefore splitting, cracks & knots, expansion and contraction and any other feature / processes that are as a result of wood being a natural product etc are not covered by any guarantee. All dimensions are shown as within reasonable acceptable tolerances for the product sold. Garden buildings are not sold or presented as being exact dimensions owing to the nature of the material used in manufacture Timber thickness is the thickness of the timber as sawn.
All buildings are ordered and supplied on the basis that their actual dimensions, weights and descriptions are within reasonable tolerances of those stated given the nature of the product as a garden building. There will be factory accepted tolerances on most of the above which you agree to accept by making the purchase.
Unless otherwise stated log cabins and timber buildings will be delivered untreated and will require the application of a good quality timber preservative after the building has been delivered to you, treatment needs to be applied inside and outside.
8.2 Warranty: You agree that we do not offer or imply any warranty on any product unless specifically stated in the product text as shown on this web site. Any warranty such as may exist is a manufacturers limited warranty and all warranty issues shall be deemed and governed by the Manufacturer. Warranty is always based on full compliance with manufacturers recommendations for assembly, treatment, maintenance, use and is always limited to the original purchaser for UK domestic use only.
8.3 In the Event of any part being replaced under a warranty it is your responsibility to fit that part.
8.4 We accept no responsibility whatsoever for the content of any web sites other than web sites owned by Gudrum Classics Ltd.
