Exact specifications of your Order can be provided on request.
Modern Garden Rooms structures are covered by a comprehensive guarantee against design and manufacturing faults, material failure, corrosion and rot for a period of 10 years from the date full and final payment is received provided that the company installed the building. Doors and windows, floor coverings, electrical installations, electric appliances, heaters, accessories, telecoms, network and TV connections are covered by a one year guarantee.
Unless otherwise agreed, Modern Garden Rooms shall carry out the installation of the groundworks required for the installation of the Goods.
Where it has been agreed that you will provide the groundworks, it will be your responsibility to ensure that all groundworks have been completed (and if necessary a base installed at the delivery site) to a satisfactory quality so the delivery site is fit and adequate for the installation of the Goods by the agreed delivery date.
If the groundworks and base have not been completed in time for delivery or if they are defective or not of satisfactory quality (in our reasonable opinion), we may charge you a sum to cover any expenses incurred by us in rectifying the groundworks and base, together with any loss caused by a delay in delivering the Goods (except where this is caused by our breach of these conditions or our negligence).

Planning consent is not normally required. However, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that planning consent is not required for the installation or to obtain the relevant permissions prior to the commencement of the build. We recommend you seek clarification from your local planning authority.
