We do not normally deliver on Saturdays, but where we can and we agree to an additional charge will be levied. We do not deliver at all on Sundays or public holidays. Whilst we agree to use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that delivery is made around the delivery lead time advertised, you acknowledge that actual delivery is often via third party suppliers and carriers and can therefore be beyond our reasonable control. Incorrect personal details may also lead to problems or delays in delivery, so before placing your order, please ensure that you have included the full delivery address details, including an accurate postcode of the delivery address and your daytime contact telephone number(s) and an up to date e-mail address so that we can notify you in the event of a delivery problem.

Delivery times are between 6am and 7pm, we are unable to specify a time for delivery. During adverse weather conditions our delivery service may be affected in some areas, resulting in lead times being slightly longer than advertised.

If you have any special requirements or if access is difficult, please contact 01777 802300. If access for delivery is restricted please ensure that you inform us when placing your order or in all circumstances prior to despatch of the goods. Failure to do so will result in the delivery being treated as a failed delivery if access is unavailable and may result in a re-delivery charge being applied. If a delivery is refused at the delivery address and re-requested for another date, we may charge for the second delivery. If you refuse to accept an item that is being delivered for any reason you must notify us immediately with the reason for [email protected]

Where we fail to meet our next day delivery obligation and the goods are subsequently delivered on another day we will refund the next day delivery charge to you so long as the error was on our part or that of our nominated carriers. We cannot refund the fee if the error was due to incorrect information being supplied at the time of order for this service which subsequently causes failure of the next day delivery.

If you have placed your order on line and an additional delivery surcharge is required, your order will be placed on hold and we will contact you to notify you of the additional charge.

Project Timber is now offering an installation service on selected products which includes our knowledgeable installation team delivering, unpacking and assembling the product ensuring that it is fitted correctly and safely. The team will also remove any packaging from your garden after assembly so you can sit back and let us do the hard work!
We are currently only able to offer the service to limited postcodes – The postcodes for Assembly are AL, B, BB, BD, BL, BR, CB, CH, CM, CO, CR, CV, CW, DA, DE, DH, DL, DN, DY, E, EN, GU, HA, HD, HG, HR, HP, HU, HX, IG, IP, KT, L, LE, LN, LU, M, ME, MK, N, NE, NG, NN, NR, NW, OL, OX, PE, PR, RG, RH, RM, S, SG, SK, SL, SM, SN, SR, SS, ST, SW, TF, TS, TW, UB, W, WA, WD, WF, WN, WR, WS and YO. If you are outside the above postcodes we may be able to assemble at an extra charge. A level concrete or paved base suitable for the size of the building must be laid ready prior to assembly. (Photographs may be required of the base and a basic diagram of the garden). If on arrival the base is not suitable and the installation is failed, the customer will become liable for the installation service fee which will be 50% of your installation value. The product can be left on site and the customer will be given the option of either assembling the building themselves or a return visit can be arranged subject to payment of an additional installation service however in this instance only 50% of the installation value will be refunded. It is the responsibility of the customer to provide free and unobstructed access for product delivery and entry to the fitting site. We recommend that panel sizes are checked to allow access through archways and doors. There may be an additional charge if the building is to be assembled a large distance from where it has been delivered. The installation service does not include the fitting of any optional extras or other products bought at the time or after the order. It is advised that the customer is present at the time of fitting but not essential, however, we would require written permission to deliver and install in the customer’s absence along with detailed instructions of fitting requirements. Please be aware that the customer will be responsible for disposing of any leftover felt, off cuts off wood etc. Please note, our drivers are not insured to enter properties and therefore will not carry any goods through a customers’ house, even at their request. If you have any special instructions or have any enquiries, please contact [email protected]

These images are used for our reference and form part of the delivery/installation process. Our team will be required to use personal camera equipment to take these images. Any taken images will be kept for project timber use and on occasion, we may request use of your images as promotional material for our website. No personal details will be used in this instance.
If you need to reschedule your assembly date, please let us know at your earliest convenience by contacting the logistics team on 01777 802300 or [email protected]

. Or contact us on 01777 802300
4.2 No fuss 14 day returns / money back guarantee.

We’re confident you’ll have a happy experience when you buy from us—we know your needs by heart and all we want to nurture is a community of happy and satisfied customers. If you do have a problem though, you can return your product to us within 14 days of delivery, without any fuss – as long as you haven’t used it already. Throughout most of the UK, our products are delivered and collected on our own vans. In the unfortunate situation that you do want to return your purchase, please be advised that there is a variable charge to cover the cost of the collection as follows: A charge of £0.30 per kg for the weight of your order. For all orders where a surcharge has been paid, there is an additional charge, equivalent to the original surcharge paid. For the avoidance of doubt, if the original surcharge was £50, the collection cost for an order under £200 would be the £50 surcharge plus £20, a total of £70.

Refunds will then be processed once the building has been received and checked by the management team. Refunds will be returned via the same method used to purchase the product.
5. Product Information
5.1 Project Timber Ltd Anti Rot guarantee
Any product covered with the Anti-Rot Guarantee will display one of the following logos displaying the length of guarantee that applies.
10 Year warranty applies to Standard “dip” treated products
15 Year Warranty applies to Pressure Treated Products
Standard or dip-treated products carry a guarantee against rot. Anti-rot protection guards against fungal decay and insect attack. The guarantee does not cover movement, warping or splitting of timber products over time. The guarantee also excludes any OSB materials used. Any warranty offered is only valid for goods within the United Kingdom. All products sold are for domestic use only unless otherwise stated in the description and/or product pages. This warranty applies to products purchased after September 2016.
5.2 Validity of guarantee
The product build instructions which are supplied with each building should be adhered to comply with the conditions of the guarantee. If any part of pre-treated timber is cut, notched or drilled then an approved cut-end treatment should be applied to comply with the conditions of the guarantee. A suitable timber treatment should be applied to dip treated products at the time of the first build and then applied every 12 months to maintain the appearance of the timber and to comply with the conditions of the guarantee. Pressure treated products are treated at our facility prior to delivery so do not require treating, however, should you choose to treat you can. The application and/or mixing guidelines provided by the manufacturer of the timber treatment should be followed. The guarantee is invalid if:
1. If the building has been customised or modified in any way.
2. The person claiming is not the original purchaser of the building.
3. The building has not been treated annually or as per the treatment manufacturers.
4. The building has not been erected on a suitable sized flat, solid level concrete/slab base or placed on pressure treated bearers and it is found to be water/moisture is rising from the base.
5. The building has not been erected, fitted or installed correctly.
6. In cases of general wear and tear, misuse or by third party damage.
7. The building is or has been placed within 2 feet (1m) of any obstruction (walls, tress, fences etc) which can allow moisture to penetrate the timber.
8. Any material that is OSB (Oriented strand board) This must be protected from the weather as is not a waterproof material
9. This warranty does not cover any modifications to any building, damage to these adjustments will not be covered by Project Timber. This includes but is not limited to electrical adaptations, use of furniture/personal items inside the building or any exterior adaptations. The consumer will be liable for any removal and replacement of adaptations in any warranty claim.
This warranty does not cover any modifications to any building, damage to these adjustments will not be covered by Project Timber. This includes but is not limited to electrical adaptations, use of furniture/personal items inside the building or any exterior adaptations. The consumer will be liable for any removal and replacement of adaptations in any warranty claim.
5.3 Product Maintenance
Wood is a natural material and carries unique characteristics. This results in no two pieces being the same in appearance.
Whilst we endeavour to make sure all sections are as equal to one another as possible, it’s inevitable there may be misalignment from time to time. This is normally caused by thermal expansion/contraction and with the panels made in different batches, this cannot be remedied. In action to this, we supply cover strips which take the eye away from cladding that doesn’t match perfectly.
We use shiplap design to deter water away from the building and allow for the expansion and contraction of wood. This also helps prevent wooden panels from warping, bowing and splitting. Whilst water should not enter the building we cannot 100% guarantee this within the movement of the material. Therefore it is recommended that guttering is fitted at the stage of assembly to further reduce this.
Wood may contain knots and other small details in which are formed throughout the life of the product. These are simply aesthetic and will not affect the structure of the building in any way. These can simply be filled with an expandable filler purchased from a DIY store. You will find that this settles after the first few years as the movement of the material will become less frequent as it adapts to the elements.
Wood being a natural material is subject to thermal movement. Whilst we endeavour to make sure all this happens as little as possible, we ensure that there is always enough movement to allow for thermal expansion around the panels, this stops panels expanding and splitting or bowing. We do not advertise the building as watertight but if this is required, you would need to use an expandable wood filler, this will still allow the expansion whilst keeping the water out. These products can be sourced from any local DIY store.
Door adjustments are not covered under Project Timber Ltd guarantee and may be required during time to time. This is simply due to the expansion and contraction of the material during seasons however over time this will settle.
Colour tones can vary across panels. These are batch produced and sometimes different batches will be used in orders. Colour will not affect the construction of the building and over time panels will all fade to the same colour during various weather conditions. Standard treated buildings require painting once received in line with our Anti Rot Guarantee in section 5.2 however with pressure treated buildings it is advised to use a wood cleaning product available from various DIY stores to refresh the colour of the building.
Warping cracking or splitting is not covered by any Project Timber Ltd guarantee. Warping/ cracking or splitting of timber can occur with the product being a natural material. Various remedies are available in DIY stores to prevent/ Rectify these qualities.
Mineral Felt roofing is the standard option we provide on all of our buildings. In time the felt will deteriorate and need replacing. This can be caused by but is not limited to, weather conditions, movement in the building and animal damage. This is not covered by the guarantee. We recommend our Rubber Roof product for a lifelong roof cover protection.
Felt tiles are a great addition to your building. They increase the aesthetic look of the building. However adverse weather conditions can cause the tiles too loosen / come out of place. In this instance, this is not covered by any installation or product guarantee offered by Project Timber Ltd if weather is deemed to be the cause.
The pressure treatment process offered by Project Timber is a long-life protection against rot and decay and is not a weatherproof system. Your garden building will require protection from UV light and water penetration, therefore no further preservative treatment is required. We do recommend that a weatherproof coating is applied as soon as possible but no later than 12 weeks after installation and then at regular intervals to increase the life of the building. Please follow the manufacturer’s recommendations as to when to apply the product.
5.4 Force Majeure
Force majeure is defined as any cause to our buildings deemed beyond our control. This includes but is not limited to act of God, War, Terrorism, Flood, Weather, Explosion, Natural catastrophes, Civil/military disturbances, Strikes and theft. We will not be held liable or responsible for any failure or delay in our terms and conditions if said cause is due to Force Majeure.
5.6 Planning Permission & Building Regulations
Most of our buildings are designed so that plannings permission is not required. Permission is the responsibility of the consumer and no liability to failed permission will be accepted by Project Timber Ltd. We advise you seek permission for you building before order as you may be liable for return fees as set out in section 4.
To support this we would like to make it clear that our buildings are sold as garden buildings where permissions/regulations are not required. However, you may wish to use your building for different circumstances. We advise that should you choose to use your garden building for specialist needs that you contact your local council/authority and discuss this with them as counties have different regulations.
5.5 General Information
Wood is a natural product and susceptible to changes in the external environment. Extremes of temperature or weather conditions will cause a reaction in the timber. Sawn timber and machine-rounded items in particular, may split. This will not affect the structural strength of the wood or the product guarantee.
5.6 Customer Media

Our pressure treated and composite timber buildings come with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee, providing that they comply with our specific guidelines that will ensure your product qualifies.The guarantee doesn’t cover any splits or warping that can occur naturally over time or any other damage caused to the building that is not due to general rot or decay.
For your building to comply, a dip treated building must be treated within 1 month of delivery to maintain the guarantee and it must be fully treated with an appropriate high quality wood preservative. The wood preservative must also be applied annually where proof of purchase of the annual treatment must be shown.
For our pressure treated buildings, if any of the timber is cut, drilled or notched during assembly, then it must be sealed with an approved cut-end treatment and treated annually where proof of purchase of the treatment must be shown. With pressure treated timber, it must not have any wood preservative applied to it until the building is fully dry, which would be at least 1 month after rain to prevent trapping any moisture inside the timber, which would also void the guarantee.
For our composite timber buildings, the building must also be treated annually with a suitable high-quality wood preservative, which would need to be applied to the composite timber cladding and also any untreated or pressure treated timber parts. The treatment will need to be applied annually and proof of purchase of the annual treatment must be shown.
To ensure that the timber is not exposed to any moisture buildup inside the building, all glazing must be fully sealed, inside and out, with silicone or an appropriate watertight sealant. If our upvc upgrade has been purchased, then the upvc units must also be fully sealed with silicone or an appropriate watertight sealant on the inside and out to ensure that the building is fully weatherproof.
Our 15 year anti-rot guarantee will also be voided if any of the following are not adhered to.
- The building must be assembled on a firm and level base made from a suitable material that has adequate drainage to prevent any moisture buildup and pooling of water.
- It must be assembled correctly according to the assembly instructions. Please contact our product support team for any advice or assistance if you are unsure to help prevent any damage to your building.
- It must not be modified or customised in any way as this could affect the integrity of the structure and could cause moisture ingress.
- The building must have had roof felting or a suitable roof covering material applied correctly that is not damaged that could allow any moisture into the building.
- Has not been in contact with an exterior wall or trees that may allow any moisture to penetrate the timber.
- The building must have been installed with 1m of clearance on all sides to allow for annual treatment and to prevent any moisture buildup.
- The person claiming is the original purchaser of the building.
Due to the nature of the timber used in the manufacture of the building, there are characteristics that are not covered by the guarantee as minor defects will occur naturally in the material and are also due to changes in the external environment and won’t affect the integrity of the building.
- Splits in the timber that may occur naturally or due to damage from the assembly.
- Warping of the timber as this will occur naturally over time.
- Chips in the timber from knot holes as these can be repaired easily using non-toxic wood glue.
- Sap residue from timber as this occurs naturally.
- Colouration of the timber, where pressure treated timber will slightly change in colour over time.
- Gaps caused by the expansion and contraction of the timber throughout the seasons. In hotter months the timber will contract as its moisture content decreases, which can leave small gaps. When the timber expands in the wetter months any gaps will close back up again.
Any claims on faults upon inspection of the delivery of your building must be reported immediately before completion of the building assembly to allow the replacement of parts or any missing items to be arranged to remedy any issues. The building must also be checked regularly for debris and general maintenance made of the location. Any external changes around the building’s location must be kept within the guidelines as this could cause damage to the building. The minimum clearance must also be kept around the building to remain compliant with the guarantee terms.
All of the buildings sold by Project Timber are strictly for domestic use only, which is for leisure purposes and occasional work and do not comply with building regulations for commercially used buildings. Any sheds, summerhouses, chalets, garden rooms and offices are designed for domestic use only and any use of the building for any commercial purposes will void the buildings warranty and guarantees as a result of the breaching of the terms and conditions.
If any buildings sold by Project Timber will be used for any commercial purposes, for any types of businesses, it is the responsibility of the customer to gain permission for the development. Additional planning permission and regulatory standards will be required if the building will be being used commercially, even if the building doesn’t require planning permission for domestic use.
Project Timber will not be held liable for all claims, liability, damages, losses, death, personal injury, costs (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of any breach of the terms and conditions that are direct, indirect or consequential. The customer is entirely responsible for gaining permission from a local authority or other regulatory approvals to ensure the building is compliant with any planning permission or building regulations that are legally required as a result of the buildings change of use.
Activities resulting in the building’s use will void the terms and conditions where it will no longer be classed as being used for domestic use. These activities include:
- No longer being used privately
- A marked rise in traffic or people calling or involves any activities unusual in a residential area.
- Any activities that will disturb your neighbours at unreasonable hours or create other forms of nuisance such as noise or smells.
Failure to comply with any planning permission or building regulations as a result of the building being used beyond its intended domestic use is entirely the responsibility of the customer which Project Timber Ltd has specified in these terms and conditions as a result of being caused by circumstances beyond its control.
