a. Timber is a natural organic material and timber Goods, once assembled on site, will continue to react to weather conditions including variations in humidity and temperature and will ‘settle’ which can result in shakes, splits, cracks and the movement of timbers. This natural characteristic will not affect the integrity, strength and safety of Your product and as such are not an acceptable reason for the rejection or return of the Goods and are not covered under the Warranty.b. Minor adjustments may become necessary (including adjustments to the doors and windows as they may drop, expand, contract and warp etc). Such adjustments and/or repairs are not part of the installation service and should be carried out by You or a 3rd party on Your behalf. Alternatively, We can carry out such work on a chargeable basis.

11.4 Warranties.

Our Goods come with the following Warranties:

i. Cedartree timber products carry a 15-year guarantee against timber rot and decay; and
ii. All products carry a one-year guarantee against faulty materials and workmanship.
iii. Our canopies carry a 5 year warranty

b. In all cases a warranty will not be valid if the Goods are found to have been used, maintained and/or stored other than in accordance with Our guidelines or misused in any way, or where any faults are as a result of vandalism, abuse, Acts of God, severe weather conditions, general wear and tear or the failure or inadequacy of works carried out on the Goods either during assembly/installation or otherwise subsequent to their installation by You or another party.

c. If Your wish to make a claim under a Warranty, please notify Us in the first instance by phone or email quoting the Order reference number.

d. Cedar, like all timber, will over time “grey” due to the effect of the suns UV rays. This is quite normal and in no way effects the integrity of the timber. This natural greying process is not covered under the terms of our warranty. It is strongly recommended that a re-coat of Decking Oil is applied as necessary, but at least every 12 months, to help inhibit the greying process
