Garden Room Care and Maintenance
When you choose a bespoke luxury garden room with Crown Pavilions you are choosing quality. Our team of highly skilled craftsmen are passionate about the constructs they create and use only the finest materials and time honoured techniques. We ensure that the finished garden room is built to exacting standards but there are recommended garden room care and maintenance tasks that are required of you in order to avoid invalidating any guarantees and ensure the long life of your garden room.
Taking Care of the Timber – Cedar and Redwood
During the initial installation of your garden room, our team of highly skilled craftsmen take great care to ensure that this has been done in accordance with our strict quality assurance policy. The timber is treated to ensure durability and longevity. All we ask is that the concrete base is prepared to include a damp proof membrane and the timber is treated to ensure durability and longevity.
It is up to you to carry out regular checks and maintenance of your garden room which includes clearing away debris, rubbish and any leaves from the interior and exterior of your garden building. This must be done at least once a year but we recommend that you do this once a month in order to get the most out of your garden room.
Once a year (ideally in late spring or summer) all soft furnishing and blinds must be removed in order for the appropriate wood treatment to be applied to the timber of your pavilion using a soft brush or cloth. We recommend that you allow 2-4 days after treatment for the preserver to dry before you replace your garden building soft furnishing in order to avoid staining.
The following are recommended treatments for the material of your garden building:-
Use a good quality Cedar oil preserver and apply this generously in order to protect the timber against rot and repel insects.
For this we recommend a good quality fence and shed wood preserver which will help protect against rot, mould and fungi. During the initial build or your garden room, all base timber that are in contact with the ground and the newel posts which support the roof structure are pressure treated with tanalith E preservative.
Cedar pavilions include a 20 year guarantee whereas European Redwood garden room come complete with a 10 year guarantee against wood decay. All Crown Pavilions constructs include a 3 year workmanship warranty. All the aforementioned apply for faulty workmanship and do not apply in the event that recommended maintenance instructions are not followed.
Garden Room Soft Furnishing and Blinds
Crown Pavilions provide a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty against fault workmanship of all soft furnishings and blinds provided by Crown Pavilions from the time of order. The canvas we use for our blinds is Solution Dyed Acrylic and has been treated with a mildew and rot resistant chemical. We do recommend that you regularly lightly clean your soft furnishings and blinds using warm soapy water (no hotter than 30C) and avoid the use of strong detergents.
