We have had many enquiries over the years asking whether we offer re-roofing services, painting services and other maintenance options – none more so than currently. Therefore we have decided to add this to our repertoire.
Log cabins aren’t like other types of garden buildings – if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can do more harm than good. There ahve been many instances over the years where a customer has employed a jobbing builder or handyman than “has been doing this type of works for decades and I know what I’m doing!”………..Guess what – they think it’s a shed and start nailing and screwing everywhere, stopping the logs from moving (they must be free to move) and causing all sorts of issues (gaps in walls, lifting the roof off when the cabin settles down, stopping the doors from working because the door frame has been pushed out of square – you name it, we’ve seen it!).
We have various teams of installers who “know” log cabins and how to build them – this is essential knowledge if working on a cabin, not only what to do but also how to do it……there’s no point in having a theory of what to do if you do irreparable damage trying to get to the bit that you think is causing the issue. Our installers have 2 major advantages here – they will almost certainly know what the problem is being caused by AND they know how to rectify it without destroying the building.
There is also ongoing maintenance to be considered – re-painting, re-roofing, adjusting doors and windows, etc. We can also offer these services – we have a big advantage here…..we stock many of the items required to carry this work out (felt roll, felt shingles, insecticide & fungicide base coat treatments, spare hinges, spare wall logs, spare roof & floor boards etc), so not only can webring these with us but also they will be much cheaper than buying from a local timber merchant or hardware DIY store.
Whatever you need doing to your garden outbuilding (including sheds, garden workshops, log cabins, summerhouses, garages, etc) then we are able to help you – please contact us for details or find more details here – https://www.hortonsgroup.com/cabin-shed-maintenance-repairs.
