Preparation and Preservation
To ensure the longevity and stability of your new 12×8 Garden Summerhouse or Shed, it must be positioned on a solid, level base made of concrete or paving slabs. Following installation, we highly recommend treating your building to preserve its quality and appearance. Due to the treatment used to preserve your timber structure, you may note a green colour to the wood. Please use outdoor wood stain to preserve and enhance the beauty of your building.
We take pride in our ability to tailor all our buildings to our customer’s unique specifications. Our experienced craftsmen have the expertise and facilities to create your new shed in any design or size you desire. We can even customise the placement of windows and doors to best suit your needs and preferences.
Information On The Process Of Tanalising:
Your product has been crafted from pressure-treated softwood, specifically, Swedish Redwood, using a process commonly known as Tanalising. This procedure involves impregnating the timber with an environmentally-friendly wood preservative, Tanalith E, under controlled conditions within a vacuum-pressure timber impregnation plant.
During this process, the preservative chemicals become permanently embedded in the timber, making them impossible to remove. Occasionally, this treatment may leave a green residue on the surface, which typically disappears with use. It’s important to note that this residue is not harmful and does not constitute a blemish. Rather, it’s a characteristic that can occur due to the treatment process. As we mentioned above, you can use wood stain to change the colour of your garden building to a preferred shade.
