Immediatley following the completion of your building you may notice items such as the following which could be a result of drying out, settlement or an excessively damp or cold environment during our build time. Such conditions can affect many types of sustancial build, even house building and should not be seen as a concern.
Cracks to plaster or loose plaster over a screw fixing. Excessively warm days can result in quick plaster drying time which can leave a crack or loose plaster which is easily filled and painted back over. We recommend that you retain spare paint for such areas and are we happy to return free of charge within 6 months to affect plaster repairs.
Rubbing… Our doors are substancial and heavy. You may expereice ‘settlement’ where a door drops into position and rubs against the bottom or adjoining frame. As coloured frames expand and contract more than white frames, finding a ‘mid position’ for products can be difficult requiring an additional visit. If this occurrs at any time please request aservice call and we will adjust your doors free of charge under warranty.

Our structure is designed and built to breathe with gaps left beneath the structure and other key locations. Check these on a regular basis to ensure against reduced air flow caused by debris or vegetation growth.
We include trickle ventilation. Open and use these for background ventilation to counter potential humidity.
Roof and Rainwater
Clean gutter of debris on a regular basis and ensure against downpipe blocking.
Monitor the area of the outlet of the downpipe. If this regularly becomes sodden we would recommend that you install a soak-away into your garden to direct rainwater water from your structure and base.
Inspect the roof area at least twice yearly. Remove debris and check for damage from falling objects such as fireworks. Immediately repair any damaged area. Check for loose or damaged expansion trims from roof edge.
Use a cleaning agent and not water for laminate floors as excess water can cause damage to laminates and adjoining skirting boards. Use house cleaning products for general surface cleaning.
