10 Year Anti-Rot Guarantee
Our spray treated wooden garden buildings come with a 10 year anti rot guarantee*. Our Anti-rot red cedar coating guards against general fungal decay. The guarantee will not cover the timber from, shrinking, warping or splitting over time. This spray treatment lasts approximately 6-12 months, but we recommend you apply a preservative top coat as soon after assembly as possible and then at least 1 coat annually.
For a longer-lasting garden building, we recommend this product to be assembled on a solid and level base, either paving slabs, poured concrete, ground level wooden bearers or our own Eco-Base grid system. A flat, level base is essential for the longevity of this product.
If your new garden building is not assembled on a firm level and square base, it could warp and twist out of shape with the natural movement of the wood. The first sign of any movement are when the door stops opening and closing properly. You may also get problems with the roofing felt and potential water leaks, the floor may flex and most probably creak. First check your base is perfectly level in both of the directions and adjust prior to the assembly. It would be really difficult to adjust the base afterwards.
All Shed Monkey garden buildings are designed to fit well, with general maintenance throughout this products life, we would suggest this to last well over 10 years and would not be surprised to see this standing in 20 years time.
