Terms and Conditions
Product Maintenance and Guarantee
Kirton Sectional Buildings offer a 10 year anti- rot guarantee (none transferable) on all the timber used in the manufacture of our timber products. However this does not cover any splits in the timber, warping, swelling and shrinkage of the boards As well as small knot holes and splits due to extremes of temperatures and weather conditions, as this is a natural part of the product which is prone to changes. Whilst quality is our main concern, (all materials are subjected to quality inspection for visible knot holes or splits during manufacture) due to movement and maturation of this natural product dislodged knots or small splits can occur. We cannot be held responsible for the aging process of this product but will always do our best to advise if this occurs.
Shed grade and heavy duty felt come with a 6 month guarantee. Wrinkling is not a defect and is a natural occurrence due to the weather, temperatures and the movement of the timber product.
We provide each customer with a complimentary tub of water proofer – Super shield. We highly recommend application to the timber building, as soon as possible after erection. This acts to seal the end grains of any exposed timber, which is needed due to the porous nature of timber. For maintenance of the building long term, we recommend annual use of a high quality water proofer used strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Mould growth is a natural occurrence in timber and is not a defect. If mould growth has occurs, we recommend the area be cleaned with warm soapy water to remove this. Once the area has dried out fully, application of Super shield to the problem area will prevent regrowth.
Events outside our control
Kirton Sectional Buildings cannot be held liable for any failure to perform and reserves the right to delay our contracted obligations due to events outside our reasonable control (force majeure event). If the circumstances in question continue for a continuous period in excess of 120 days, either party shall be entitled to give notice in writing to the other to terminate the agreement.
Kirton Sectional Buildings recommend a square, level and prepared base, comprised of either paving slabs or a concrete pad. A well prepared base is essential to the overall finish of the building quality/structure but also the aesthetic and long term function of the timber building purchased. We also, on this basis recommend the utilisation of timber bearers (can be provided at a cost from Kirton Sectional Buildings) to help obtain the best quality finish by our team of erectors. We do not recommend that timber buildings are erected onto grass or bare earth.
Assembly is offered on the understanding that a prepared base (as above) is ready with sufficient means of access to the site. If there is an issue with the base, Kirton Sectional Buildings will require a minimum of 5 days’ notice to re- schedule. If the site is found to be unsatisfactory on arrival, and a re-visit to site is needed, this will be subject to a £35.00 charge if the building can be left on site. If the building cannot be left and must return to our show site, the re-visit for erection will be subject to a £100.00 charge. Or lastly the building can be left for self-assembly – (no self-assembly refund given).
Access and Delivery
There must be appropriate access for our erectors to carry the individual panels to the proposed site and Kirton Sectional buildings will not be held responsible for any damage caused during fitting. The largest panel used during construction would be 14ft x 8ft. Customers must advise on any height restrictions, narrow gaps, tight turns, or any issues with access at the time of purchase with the sales team. Our erectors are instructed not to lift any panels over fencing unless previously agreed with the sales office at time of purchase. The standard delivery allows a carry of up to 45 metres (50 yards) from the nearest parking point to the proposed site. If the proposed base is over 45 metres, you must advise Kirton Sectional Buildings directly, whereby we reserve the right to levy a surcharge as appropriate. Failure to do so may result in your unit being delivered as far as vehicle access and left for self-assembly (no self-assembly refund given).

Kirton Sectional Buildings require a 50% minimum deposit with every order, balance payable on or before delivery of the building.
