Certain products offered by Merseyside Sheds require a height clearance and this will be highlighted to the buyer upon ordering / receiving an order.

This includes the application of roof covering, glazing of windows as well as the building being constructed on a solid level base which will be required before the installation process can begin. The installation team will require unrestricted access from our vehicle to the base upon the building is being installed for the full duration. The duration the installation team are at the buyers property can vary in time between 30 minutes to 8 hours depending on the size building. It remains the buyers responsibility to ensure clear and unrestricted access is granted, as well as ensuring a solid level base is provided at the time of installation as not doing so could result in the building being delivered only and should we be required to revisit to install, a fee will be charged. Our installation team will strongly advise what they deem to be an appropriate base however are instructed to follow the buyers final decision on what to install the building upon.
Timber is a natural product and prone to changes in appearance, including some movement and the occurrence of small knot holes or splits in extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Any splits, knots or similar visual imperfections in the timber will not affect the structural integrity of the product in any way, are not considered to be damage, and do not render the product unfit for purpose.
Whilst every effort is made to hand pick timber without visible knotholes or splits there may be occasions where timber is selected in good faith that contains what appears to be a solid knot. Over the course of time / during movement of the product etc. it may occur that these small knot holes are then dislodged from the timber leaving a small knot or crack. Unfortunately we cannot be held responsible for this maturing of the product and can only offer our best advice on how to deal with this situation in the unlikely event that it should occur.
Diptreated – All garden sheds, summerhouses and childrens play houses are treated with a factory coat of timber preserve however we strongly recommend treating your building as soon as possible with an appropriate high quality preservative with silicone or other water tight sealant to prevent your building against moisture ingress.
Pressure treatment (Tanalised) – All garden sheds, summerhouses and childrens play houses that are upgraded to 16mm Shiplap Tongue and Groove Pressure treated cladding are protected against rot and decay. We do however strongly recommend treating your building as soon as possible with an appropriate high quality preservative with silicone or other water tight sealant to prevent your building against moisture ingress.
If you wish to cancel your order before it has been delivered, you must notify Merseyside Sheds immediately. An administration fee of £50 is payable and if you’re building has entered manufacture, a cancellation charge of 25% of the invoice value will be payable. Altering you’re delivery date once you’re building has entered manufacture will incur a £50 re delivery fee. If a refund is due to the buyer, monies owed will be paid within 14 working days.
