WE RECOMMEND YOU ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION
Always check there are no overhanging branches or leaves above your building, this can wear away the felt or break off and damage the roof. Check you have no puddles of water collecting under your log cabin. All furniture must be oiled on a regular basis. Silicone seals around doors and windows may need to be replaced when required. Your log cabin must be treated as soon as possible and we recommend Watershield Evostick, Thompson water seal or a solvent based cuprinol. More than one coat may be required, check the manufacturers recommendations. Please allow adequate space around your building for future maintenance. Also gutters can be fitted, this stops drips of water being blown on to the building, and also stops splash back onto the bottom of the building. If your log cabin is erected in damp inclement conditions, you must ensure you leave adequate ventilation to allow the log cabin to dry. If you fail to ventilate the building whilst timbers are drying out, condensation will occur. This will produce drips or runs of water inside the building, which may be mistaken for leaks. Condensation will also build up on the inside of the windows. We use Ruberoid 38kg heavy duty felt, this is the best on the market because it is manufactured with tar and oil, It can move with atmospheric conditions, this is out of our control. We felt the buildings in a way that has been tried and tested by the company for over twenty years. Roof is always larger than building size.
