Can I view your Summerhouses?
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.
On Saturdays we are open by prior arrangement only, please call us for an appointment to view. Sundays we are closed.
Can I change doors and windows/add doors or windows?
Yes. All Prima Summerhouses can be customised to suit your garden. If you have a great view and want an extra window or two to make the most of it, then just call and we will add this to your order. You may also choose alternative doors and windows for your summerhouse if the standard ones do not suit your taste.
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.

Do I need a base for my summerhouse?
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 summerhouse?
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?
Prima Summerhouses 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.
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?
Standard delivery is included in the price of the building. We deliver throughout the UK, but are unable to deliver direct to Ireland. We can however, deliver to the borders, or a Port/forward freight company for your collection.
How will my summerhouse be delivered?
Delivery is made direct from the factory to your home and is included in the price.
The buildings are supplied flat packed, on pallets, protected by plastic packaging. Delivery is via articulated lorry, with a forklift.
You will need to ensure that there is sufficient access and space for the lorry to deliver your building to roadside. If you live in a narrow road, you have weight restrictions for a 40 ton vehicle, or there are any other reasons why delivery may be difficult, please let us know at time of order.
If there are any access or delivery problems we will arrange a local delivery by a smaller vehicle. There will be an additional charge depending on the size of the building and your location.
Can you install my summerhouse 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 of our summerhouses 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 summerhouse myself?
Our Prima Summerhouses 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!
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 on your Prima Summerhouses?
Yes. A 5 year manufacturer's guarantee against manufacturing or construction defects. The guarantee only applies to 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.
