Delivery Instructions - Please Note
Our log cabins are delivered on a flat bed lorry and unloaded by crane, you will therefore need to create an appropriate space close to your kerbside for the driver to complete the delivery of the building.
Consideration should be given to the size and weight of the building. If you have restricted access please let us know at the time of ordering.
Our Cabins are made from kiln dried timber which are supplied wrapped with polythene and we suggest that they be covered with a tarpaulin if they are to be stored outside prior to construction. This is to prevent moisture/rain from warping and rotting the timber pror to installation.
All deliveries must be signed for unless confirmation is provided before delivery that the product can be left without a signature. Please see terms and conditions for more details.
Our Beausale Log Cabins are only supplied with the superior Classic Bond EPDM roof cover. This durable sheet material comes with a 20 year guarantee and a life expectancy of 50 years!
The product must be fitted by an approved installer, so the Beausale is only available where our experienced Heart of England fitters will install the rubber roof. Hence the Beausale is not available outside of the below postcode areas.
Professional installation is only available within the B, CV and WR postcode areas within the Midlands region. Please contact us for a Quotation.
The installers will contact you to arrange a suitable time and date for the fitting – this may be on a separate date to that of the delivery.
a) Log Cabin installations only include the erection of the building (not the base). And if you purchase a cabin with a deck extension and would like this to be installed in addition to the building itself, there will be an extra fitting costs.
b) Consideration regarding delivery and access should be given if you have restricted access-single doorways, archways, narrow alleyways etc.
Please let us know of any restrictions at the time of ordering. We may be able to manufacture in sections so that building will fit through the available access - although there will be an additional charge for this if required. See restricted access option in 'additional extras' section when ordering.
Under no circumstance can we lift building sections over walls, garage roofs or hedges, etc
Although we always take the greatest of care, Heart of England Garden Buildings accepts no responsibility for any damage caused to owners property, either internally or externally, during transportation and erection of buildings.
Pro-Installation Terms & Conditions:
Before our Installation Team arrive, the following is essential...
1. A firm and level base must be in place - the most common method is concrete or paving slabs, however timber decking can be used as long as it is strong, firm and designed to take the weight of your building.
Failure to provide this, in the opinion of the professional team, may result in the installation being aborted with a re-visit charge being applied should another appointment have to be made.
For Log Cabins please see the Base Size diagrams for guidance. Standard garden building bases must be to the size of the ordered building as a minimum.
2. The base and area surrounding must be clear and easily accessible with sufficient working space - for Log Cabins we recommend a minimum 1m area on all sides .
Failure to provide this space may result in the installation being aborted with a re-visit charge being applied should another appointment have to be made.
3. A power supply must be made available.
4. The installers are able to use a short and easily accessible route to take the building from where it has been placed during delivery to where it is required to be installed. This includes ensuring there are no obstacles such as narrow pathways or archways. If the access route from kerbside to base is particularly long or difficult to maneouvre you may be required to move the building into position yourself before the installers arrive - please clarify this in advance with your installer if you are unsure to avoid the possibility of a re-visit charge having to be applied.
Treatment and Maintenance
The performance and lifespan of your garden building is entirely dependent on how you treat and maintain the building. Timber is an organic product and as such it is subject to naturally occurring environmental conditions.
Taking a small amount of time throughout the year to look after the building and tend to any repairs before they become more serious is vital. As with all wooden structures the key to maintaining the building is to ensure that it remains on a firm and level base and protected against moisture penetration.
To help you get the best out of your buildings we have prepared a list of some of the key requirements in maintaining your garden buildings:
Log Cabins settle within the first few months. Moisture content in the logs will also change with the weather/seasons and with use. This will cause expansion/contraction of the wall logs around the windows and doors (up to 20-25mm). This is a natural occurrence that can be limited by the application of an exterior treatment. Please do not fix anything to the logs that may restrict their movement, such as shelves, etc.
Treatment and Maintenance of your Log Cabin
The performance and lifespan of your Log Cabin is entirely dependent on how you treat and maintain the building. Timber is an organic product and as such it is subject to naturally occurring changes due to different environmental and weather conditions.
Taking a small amount of time throughout the year to look after the building and tend to any repairs before they become more serious is important. As with all wooden structures, the key to maintaining the building is to ensure that it remains on a firm and level base and is protected against moisture penetration.
To help you get the best out of your Log Cabin we have prepared the following key maintenance requirements:
Painting/Preserving your Log Cabin
Apart from the tanalised bearers, all Log Cabins are supplied untreated. It is essential that a high quality water-resistant coating is applied to the exterior of the building immediately after erection to ensure adequate weather protection. Take particular care to thoroughly treat the lower 4 logs all around the building and all the joints and corners, plus the ends of each log. It is very important that all components are well covered and no bare timber is left exposed, including the tops and bottoms of all the doors and windows.
Cuprinol recommend 2 exterior coats. Sadolin or Sikkens are also good outdoor products. Please follow the manufacturers instructions and ask your local decorators merchant for advice. If required, we can recommend one of our approved decorators.
It is also good practice to apply a clear wood preserver such as Cuprinol Clear Wood preserver (minimum of 2 coats) to help protect the timber beforeyou apply the final treatment or paint of your choice. Particularly if you are unable to treat the building immediately after installation. This preserver provides a deep penetrating protection against wood decay, mould and blue-staining fungi. This first preserver treatment should be left to dry for about 3 to 5 days before over-painting (see instructions).
Please allow a few weeks for the external coatings to breathe before applying any paint to the interior of your new cabin – and this must be emulsion paint only.
Treat the building regularly
You should repeat the treatments as per the manufacturers instructions, with care being taken to brush the new coats into all wooden components of the building. It is very important that no bare timber is left exposed, including the tops and bottoms of all doors and windows. Small cracks and knotholes should be filled with good quality brown silicone mastic.
In exposed locations we suggest you increase weather-proofing by adding a silicone seal to all corner joints and around the windows and doors, ensuring that all of the joints and edges are filled, leaving no bare timber.
General Maintenance of your Log Cabin
Ensure nothing is in contact with your building
Any overhanging tree or hedge growth poses a threat to the building and should be cut back at regular intervals. If a tree branch makes contact with your cabin it may pierce the roofing material and encourage water ingress.
Check and replace any damaged roof
If you do find any damage sustained to your roofing over time, it is essential that you act upon this without delay. Should you discover a rip or tear, we firmly recommend the whole area is stripped from the roof and a new covering of matching material is affixed immediately.
Check your base
You should have already ensured the base was perfectly level prior to assembly and it is important to continually monitor the condition. Any movement of the base under the building can lead to twisting of the timber and a dropping of the doors.
Lubrication and adjustment
All hinges and handles should be regularly lubricated with suitable oil to ensure continued ease of use. To adjust doors and windows, simply unscrew the hinges and realign them as necessary or pack under the building bearers to square up doorway.
