Summerhouses Unlimited products carry a standard warranty direct from the individual manufacturer.

In all instances, Summerhouses Unlimited will refer back to the manufacturers warranty.
SITE SURVEYS FOR PURCHASES AND INSTALLS
All purchases of timber buildings require a basic site survey to be completed. This is primarily to provide the delivery company with accurate access needs. Incorrect or incomplete site survey forms may result in your order being cancelled or delayed. Site surveys can be completed by the customer, the aim is to ensure delivery runs as smoothly as possible, adding no additional charges for the customer if specialised delivery methods are required.
Where an incomplete/inaccurate site survey form has been submitted, Summerhouses Unlimited reserve the right to review any charges and in extreme circumstances cancel an order with a charge of £200 + VAT. Where the install service has also been purchased a more detailed site survey form will need to be completed by the customer, this is only applicable if a member of Summerhouses Unlimited staff has not visited your property. Full details on how to complete a site survey are laid out in the site survey form.
Our timber building products are, in the main, made to order. Products such as sheds, garages, log cabins and summerhouses will have a standard lead time. The lead time will be discussed with you at the time of placing your order, if it is not advertised on the product listing on the website. Where a specific date is required please make us aware in good time so we can confirm this date is achievable with the manufacturer and the delivery company. If there are any delays, Summerhouses Unlimited will make you aware soon as possible.
Website sales are only for delivery of products to customers in the UK mainland. We do not deliver to offshore locations. Locations such as Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Orkney, Shetland and Scottish Islands will be purely on request and after individual discussion and written confirmation from Summerhouses Unlimited. Any additional charges outside of the above will be the responsibility of the customer.
Standard delivery practice will mean your order is delivered to the address selected at time of ordering and usually placed at the front of the property, for example, your driveway. The courier company will contact you on the number provided to inform you of a delivery date. If the date is not available they usually offer alternative dates. If a later delivery date is selected by yourself Summerhouses Unlimited cannot be held liable for additional delays.
Summerhouses Unlimited shall be under no liability whatsoever for any delay or failure to deliver the products within our estimated timescales. Factors that can affect delivery times can include but are not limited to: 1) An unprecedented peak in seasonal sales 2) Manufacturer delays 3) Factory opening times including national holidays and shutdowns 4) Delivery company workload 5) Vehicle breakdowns 6) Staffing
Delivery of materials can be made in the week leading up to your install, please make our team aware if this isn’t possible. Summerhouses Unlimited will not be held liable for any deliveries that are turned away at the customer’s request. If materials have been turned away, we reserve the right to reschedule the install and charge a return fee of £200 + VAT.
NOTE: Please ALWAYS let us know when you have been contacted with a delivery date for your cabin. Some materials will come separately to the cabin and these need to be arranged once a delivery date has been confirmed to you, Please call us on 01522 253055 to let us know.
Summerhouses Unlimited offer an installation service that is usually booked at the time of ordering, however this can be added on at a later date. Should you wish for us to quote for this please contact us on the above number quoting your invoice number. Whilst our installers are skilled at what they do, they are not qualified carpenters. They will aim to fit your cabin to the required specification but will not be held accountable should you request changes to the cabin from what was originally ordered. It is assumed by Summerhouses Unlimited that where work will involve access to a neighboring property/garden the customer will seek the relevant permissions prior to the install date. If access to your property or a neighboring property is not granted, this may delay the install and you may incur a ‘return to job fee’ based on the cost to us to reschedule the job. An install date will be booked through the operations department, if this has to be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances Summerhouses Unlimited will notify you at the soonest point possible. Once the job has been completed you will be asked to sign the job off, by signing you are confirming you are happy with the work that has been carried out and committing to pay any outstanding install monies owed within 24 hours of the install date.
Summerhouses Unlimited will not be liable for any economic losses or claims including, but not limited to loss of revenues, data, profits, expenses, contracts, business or anticipated savings; or loss of goodwill or reputation; or special or indirect losses due to any fitters and contractors not being able to continue installation as a result of missing, damaged, non-delivery or incomplete delivery of goods ordered from Summerhouses Unlimited. Where you use a third-party installer, the contract is between you and the installer. With installation prices quoted it is assumed that access to the install site is unobstructed and bears no health and safety risks to our installers and is subject to a completed site survey.
Please note waste from the install of your timber building (wrapping, wood, pallets, etc) cannot be taken away by the install team unless arranged at the point of ordering.
In the event of a base already being in place or installed by a third-party, Summerhouses Unlimited reserve the right to cancel or put on hold an install if that base work is deemed unlevel or sub-standard. You will be advised of the next steps available to you and any additional costs. If the install goes ahead as per the customer’s request Summerhouses Unlimited will not be held liable for any movement issues that arise from building on a substandard base.
The nature of the products we supply means they can be affected by the environment, unlike plastic, steel or other man-made products. As timber is a natural product it will have grains and knots which will vary, these variations can absorb timber treatments and react to the atmosphere differently. Some splitting of the timber may occur as it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperature. Any extreme changes in climate may cause knots to fall out, this is perfectly natural and in no way undermines the integrity of the building. This is not classed as a product defect or damage unless it makes the building unfit for purpose.
DOORS AND WINDOWS
In some instances, door and window adjustments may need to be made by yourself over the life of your timber building. Please note this is part of owning a building that is made from a natural product. Adjustments to doors and windows are not classified as a fault or defect and will not be classed as repair needed to the building. Summerhouses Unlimited are happy to advise our customers on how to make these adjustments themselves. A fee may be incurred if we are called out by the customer to rectify a suspected fault which is actually a straightforward adjustment that could have been completed by the customer.
If there are any breakages to the glass in your order, please take photos and send them to email@example.com at the soonest point in time. Summerhouses Unlimited will not accept any claims for glass breakage during transit if more than 7 days have passed from the delivery date, to you informing us of the breakage. Once the timber building is installed we will not be held liable for any glass breakages due to fixings made to the windows or doors e.g. blinds, curtain poles.
CLAIMS AND DAMAGED GOODS
On very rare occasions our goods can receive some light damage during shipping. We will always work with our customers to resolve any issues you might have with your order. You must inform us of any breakages or damages to the product received from us within 7 working days of delivery. Please quote your invoice number in all correspondence.
Our standard resolution process is: i) To make good any shortage or non-delivery ii) To replace or repair any goods that are damaged or defective iii) To refund to you the amount paid by you for the goods in question, at our discretion
Risk of loss or damage of any products passes to you on the date when the products are delivered to you or on the date of our first attempted delivery to your delivery address. Replacement parts are sent direct from the manufacturer, you will be advised of lead times at the time of contacting us to make us aware of the issues.
If your goods are incorrect, faulty or damaged on delivery you must notify Summerhouses Unlimited, in writing within 7 days of receiving your delivery. The first stage of rectifying this is noted above under ‘Claims and Damaged Goods’. When a product is returned we will consider the overall condition and reserve the right to seek payment for any damage incurred by yourself or poor re-packaging that may affect the re sale value of the returned item. Goods must be returned within 28 days of delivery. Collection will be arranged via our nominated delivery company.
In all instances you must take reasonable care of the item(s) and must not use them. If the item being returned is not defective the customer will incur the return fees. You have a statutory 7 days cooling off period (excluding bespoke orders) from the day you receive your order.
In the rare instance you should experience a fault or be missing a part please make Summerhouses Unlimited aware at the soonest point. Standard procedure is for us to contact the manufacturer for a resolution. It is important you check you have received all the components of your order as soon as possible after delivery. The manufacturers will send out any missing/replacement parts directly from the factory and limit it to one case per customer on missing items. We will always work with customers for a positive resolution and keep in contact with you throughout. Should we receive no response to our correspondence four weeks from the last contact date, we will assume a resolution has been made and close the case and therefore any claim.
CANCELLATION OF AN ORDER
If for any reason you wish to cancel your order after it has been processed please make Summerhouses Unlimited aware in writing as soon as possible. As each order is individually placed, and shipped, Summerhouses Unlimited reserve the right to invoice or seek to claim back any charges incurred by us. It is standard practice, this fee is £50 + VAT. However, if your order is awaiting delivery this fee will increase in proportion to costs incurred by Summerhouses Unlimited from the manufacturer, delivery company and such.
CANCELLATION OF CUSTOM MADE ORDERS
Bespoke or custom-made orders are where the general specification of a product has been changed as per your requests. If you decide to cancel an order of this nature you will be liable for the cost of the work in progress up to the date of the cancellation. If production has been completed you will be liable for the cost of the building and the cost to return it.
ALL CANCELLED ORDERS ARE SUBJECT TO ADMINISTRATIVE CHARGES AFTER BEING PLACED, PAID FOR AND PROCESSED BY US.
