As with all natural materials, timber can be affected during various weather conditions. For the duration of heavy or extended periods of rain, swelling of the wood panels may occur. Warping of the wood may also occur during excessive dry spells due to an interior moisture loss. Unfortunately, these processes cannot be avoided but can be helped. It is suggested that the outdoor building is sprayed with water during extended periods of warm sunshine and sheltered as much as possible during rain or snow. Our buildings are pre treated with a water based treatment**; this only helps to protect the product during transit and for up to 3 months against mould. To validate your guarantee and ensure longevity of the product, it is ESSENTIAL the building is treated with a wood preserver within the first three months of assembly and thereafter in accordance with the manufactures recommendations. Care must be taken to ensure the product is placed on a suitable base.

Ensure the base is level and is built on firm ground, to prevent distortion. Refer to diagrams for the base dimensions, The base should be slightly smaller than the external measurement of the building, i.e. The cladding should overlap the base, creating a run o for water. It is also recommended that the door be at least 25mm above the surrounding ground level to avoid flooding.
