Standard package includes
Can I view your garden stores and posh sheds?
Yes. We are not an "Internet company". We exist in the real world!
Our display centre and offices are located at Trowbridge Garden Centre, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 0DT. We have a variety of buildings from our range available to view. Obviously with literally hundreds of models available and the option to customise, we do not have every model, but we do have a "bit of everything" so that you can get a feel for the quality and options on offer.
We are open Monday - Friday 9.30am - 5pm.
At weekends we are open by prior arrangement only, please call us for an appointment to view.
Can I add doors or windows?
Yes. Just let us know and we will add this to your order
Do I need planning permission?
Many kinds of buildings and structures can be built in your garden or on the land around your house without the need to apply for planning permission. These can include sheds, garages, greenhouses, summerhouses, etc.
CLICK HERE - FOR THE LATEST MINI-GUIDE TO PERMITTED DEVELOPMENT (ENGLAND) - OUTBUILDINGS. ON THE GOVERNMENT'S PLANNING PORTAL WEBSITE
We recommend you apply for planning permission if any of the following cases apply:
- You want to put up a building or structure, which would be nearer to any highway than the nearest part of the "original house" unless there would be at least 20 metres between the new building and any highway. The term "highway" includes public roads, footpaths, bridleways and byways.
- More than half the area of land around the "original house" would be covered by the addition of buildings.
- The building or structure is not to be used for domestic purposes and is to be used instead for running a business or storing commercial goods.
- You want to put up a building or structure which is more than 3 metres high, or more than 4 metres high if it has a ridged roof. ( Most of our buildings are under 4 metres in height).
- If your house is a listed building or you live within a conservation area or an area of outstanding natural beauty (A.O.B.).
- If your building is over 30sq m internally you will need building regulation approval. Please call us for further information. We are able to design and build buildings to meet building regulation standards.
The above information is supplied as a guide only, if you are in any doubt, we recommend you contact your local planning office or visitwww.planningportal.gov.uk where you can apply for planning permission on-line.
Do I need a base for my garden store?
Yes. It is essential that all buildings are sited on a flat level base, constructed from decking, paving or concrete. Ground plans are available for all our buildings. Please note that if a base is found to be more than 20mm out of level, our installers may be unable to install your building.
Can you supply a base for my garden store?
Yes. At Garden Affairs, we have taken away the hassle of finding trades people to install your garden building base. Our cleverly designed Deck Base system, available on installed buildings, is a quick, simple and environmentally friendly foundation solution for your summerhouse. Prices are shown on all product pages.
Why do I need pre-treatment?
Most of our garden stores and posh sheds are manufactured from premium quality, slow grown, Northern European pine (a softwood) and therefore must be pre-treated against fungal decay and insect attack. The price for on-site treatment is shown and is available on all installed buildings. Our installers take great care to ensure that each end grain of timber is thoroughly treated as well as all other surfaces of the timber during installation.
Iroko Box Buildings do not require any further treatment or paint finish.
If you prefer the DIY option; when you order, we will provide you with a comprehensive care and information guide detailing all the best treatments to use to protect and maintain your garden building for years to come.
Do you deliver to my area?
Delivery is not included in the price of the Zaffiro range as the panels on some of the buildings are extremely large and need to be off-loaded by hand. Please note that on self assembly buildings you may need to have extra help available for off loading.
For this reason we will price each building based on size, access and type of vehicle required to deliver. We can arrange delivery to any area.
How will my building be delivered?
The buildings are supplied flat packed, on pallets, protected by plastic packaging. Delivery is either by articulated lorry with forklift, 18 wheel or 7.5 ton lorry with Hi-Ab depending on your access.
Can you install my building for me?
Yes. We offer a professional, high quality, fixed price, installation service and for your total peace of mind, unlike most companies, we do not use sub-contractors. Why? Pure and simple, quality control.
Our installers are experienced and trained in every aspect of garden building manufacture, design and installation. So you can relax in the knowledge that your new garden building will be installed both correctly and safely.
From the beginning of your installation until sign off, our team will carry out their work with the least amount of disruption to you and your garden.
Once the building is installed, if on the rare occasion there should be any teething problems, we will come straight back to sort this out at a time to suit you. Please be aware, that if you have been offered a cheaper installation elsewhere, there may be a reason for this. You may be dealing with a sub contracted fitter who has little knowledge of the buildings, to whom you have no recourse if there should be a problem.
How long will installation take?
Depending on the size, most buildings can be installed in 1-2 days. Larger or custom-designed buildings usually take no more than 3-4 days. Dependent of course on the Great British Weather.
Can I assemble my garden store myself?
Many of our buildings can be self-assembled by a competent DIY enthusiast and a couple of helpers. A smaller building can be assembled as a weekend project making a perfect opportunity to call in favours from both friends and family!
While we cannot determine if the "DIY" approach is right for you, we can tell you that Garden Affairs customers of all skill levels and ages have had great fun with the assembly of our buildings and are often so proud of their handy work that they can't wait to send a photo for our gallery!
And .... don't forget, because we have our own team of fully trained installers who install hundreds of Garden Affairs buildings every year, you can just call us if at any time you are stuck and we will talk you through any difficulties.
Each building is supplied direct from the factory on between 1-3 sealed pallets, complete with all the necessary fixings and fastenings. The buildings come with a complete list of all components and step-by-step, assembly instructions, which you will find attached to the outside of your package. All timber is pre-cut for ease of installation allowing you to construct your building with the minimum of tools. Windows and doors are pre-hung in their frames enabling you to simply slot them into place.
Mr D Street, from Redditch: "Congratulations for a splendid product with instructions that work".
Do you offer a guarantee?
Yes. A 5 year manufacturer's guarantee against manufacturing or construction defects. The guarantee only applies to garden buildings that have been installed and treated according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
Please note that wood is a unique, natural product and the finish on timbers will vary. Variation will be seen as coarse or fine grains and shades of colour. Such properties are normal in wood and cannot be considered as a defect, they have to be accepted as an unavoidable property of the product. Timber will shrink or swell according to weather conditions and along with warping are natural properties of wood.
In the event of a complaint, if the cause of the problem should prove to be unreasonable, extreme or severe circumstances or in the case that the building has been installed in rough/wet surroundings, or on unsuitable foundations, or when buildings have not been treated (painted/protected) properly, or longer than 3 months from assembly, the guarantee shall no longer apply. In such cases we shall be forced to charge you for call out costs, any labour costs and/or replacement of components.
Complaints for damage, visual defects or missing parts should be reported within 7 days from delivery or before assembling and treatment of the garden room.
If, in the event of a complaint, the cause should prove to be poor foundations or assembling errors, the guarantee shall not apply.
Any missing or damaged parts will always be delivered or replaced as soon as possible.
How do I order?
Please call us to place your order. You can pay by credit or debit card, cheque or bank transfer. A 25% deposit is required with all orders. The final balance is payable on completion when installed by Garden Affairs, or 7 days prior to delivery for self assembly customers.
