Terms & Conditions

Our team will contact you to confirm that your order is correct and that you have read, understood and agree with Solid Sheds terms and conditions listed below.

The Customer is advised that it is their responsibility to ensure clear access to the intended building site and that the base will be solid, flat and level, of adequate size with enough room around to allow for the roof overhangs and treatment. 

Please read the following terms and conditions and customer advice carefully. If you have any concerns or need help in any way please contact us, we are here to help.

Delivery Only

Delivery is to the front of the premises only and becomes your responsibility from then on.

Delivery and Erection

These buildings are delivered on our own vehicles and we will provide the manpower to unload and carry to the final site and erect.

Access 

Some of our panels can measure 10 x 8 feet in length and are very heavy. We must have clear access to the build area. Please advise us of any access difficulties i.e. overhead obstructions, cables or lintels, wall lights, walls, hedges, satellite dishes, brick archways etc…

Solid Sheds cannot be held responsible for any damage to any property, drives, vehicles, fixtures and fittings whilst delivering and erecting your building. If you have newly laid turf, flags or delicate plants then it is your responsibility to protect these areas. If we have to erect in mud, then you should expect mud on your building!

If we are unable to deliver your building due to inadequate access then we will leave the building flat packed at the front of your premises and 10% of the total order will be charged in the event of a recall.

Bases

It is essential that your building is erected on a solid, flat and level area and of an adequate size to accommodate the building footprint. Any unevenness will cause major problems during erection and affect the longevity of your building.

You will also need to allow a 12 inches (300 mm) space around the base to allow for roof overhangs and treatment.

If you have ordered a platform base from us, then please note that the price is subject to the ground being reasonably level and having no more than a 4 inches (100 mm) fall anywhere.

If you are going to prepare your own base please ask for further advice as this will depend on what type of building you have ordered as base sizes will vary.

If we are unable to deliver your building due to an inadequate base area then we will leave the building flat packed at your premises and 10% of the total order will be charged in the event of a recall.

Treatment

Wind, rain and sunshine have free rein…

It is your responsibility to ensure your building is watertight.

Your building is already treated against wood rot and insect infestation.

If water penetration occurs or you just want that fabulous look then we recommend Protek Royal Exterior which can be purchased from us.

We can also provide Protek Stain Blocking Primer for the lighter colours in the Protek Royal Exterior range.

Please follow the instructions on the tin.

Please note that all timber buildings need some light DIY and maintenance to prolong their life. 

Doors and windows will need adjusting as needed. Lubricate all door furniture on a regular basis.

Silicon seals will require replacement once perished. Gutters and splashbacks are recommended. 

Ensure no trees or shrubbery are affecting the roof material. 

Treatments should be applied as recommended by the manufacturer.

Planning Permission

It is your sole responsibility to check with the local planning authority regarding planning permission.

Solid Sheds Limited will not be held responsible for any issues regarding planning permission.
