TUIN Installation Service

As a company we offer limited fitting on our log cabins, gazebos, carports, verandas, Larch buildings and many other structures. The prices do vary according to the size of the product, the type of product and the location.

Customers mainly use this service for the gazebos, log cabins, verandas and Larch buildings when they wish for a contract to be with only one company, this is usually used by companies, councils, schools etc.

Self Employed Installers and their Fitting Services.

As an alternative to our own installation service we offer a recommended list of self employed installers who can carry out the installation for you. Some also offer additional services such as bases, insulation, laminate flooring, modifications to design and electrics.

All guarantees remain when using one of our Highly Recommended installers

The installers list is passed on to serious enquiries and at point of order to enable you to contact them for a quote and to discuss additional services that we cannot offer.

Most self employed fitters are about £350 per day, per man (team of two) plus traveling.

Our top recommended self employed installation team is headed by Philip: Log Cabin Fitting

Tuin Fitting Service

If you are considering having us install the building for you, we have a checklist further down the page which we require you to complete. Once complete please sumbit it via email to info@tuin.co.uk or by post to our office address.

Generally a log cabin less than 3m x 3m is a one day fit, above this is two - three. Multi-room, Pyramid roof log cabins can be two - three days with our biggest models such as the Edelweiss and Berlin being four - five days. Depending on the size a gazebo is either a one day or a two day fit. Verandas are mainly a two day fit. Larch buildings are considerably longer depending whether insulation and lining is required.

Once the form is submitted a quote will then be provided for your consideration

Our Tuin Fitting Service includes:

  • Fitting of your chosen product(s) as soon after it has been delivered as possible. We will do our best to arrange it as quickly as possible however we do allow 2 - 3 weeks from the day it has been delivered or from the point the booking is confirmed.
  • On Site consultation at the beginning of the fit to discuss location and positioning of doors and windows.
  • Correct installation as per our recommendations.
  • Fitting of felt shingles and floor when supplied. Customer will often undertake this to reduce the fit time to one in the case of larger buildings.
  • Handover and care advice following installation.

If you would like to use our Tuin fitting service the following conditions must be met:

  • The package is no further than 100m from the fitting site.
  • A perfectly flat and level base for the whole building. Watch out for this one as base layers will often by default incorperate a slope for drainage, this is not suitable for our buildings.
  • Clear and unobstructed access including no sharp turns and overhead obstructions.
  • A clear working area of 1.20m from the leading edge of any roof. In the case of the apex this needs to be 0.60m.
  • A clear area to lay out component parts prior to fitting.
  • Whilst our fitters are extremely careful, no responsibility is accepted for damage to grass or boarders in the vicinity of the fit and the route to it.
  • Other than the initial discussion and handover the site must be cleared of all people, animals and children. The fitters need to work unhindered. This includes discussions and questions during the fit.
  • Legal parking at the front or on the property for a large van.
  • Access to water, electricity and toilet facilities on site for the fitters.
  • In the case of verandas: This is a basic fit service. No groundwork will be undertaken other than digging in foundations. Alterations such a planeing a wall straight, re-routing of guttering etc is not included.

Our Tuin Fitting Service does NOT include:

  • Base laying other than timber frame bases which are available as a separate service and by arrangement.
  • Electrical work or related services.
  • Treatment of the timber.
  • Any other work not related directly with the fit.
  • Clearing / removal of any pallets, offcut timber, spare logs shingles wastage or packaging. These waste products will of course be left safe and tidy for your own disposal.
  • Fitting the Glazing Bars onto the cabin. This is due to the constructed cabin needing to be treated and the glazing siliconed before the glazing bars can be installed.

Other fitting services, adaptations, extra value such as insulating, lining, timber bases etc are available on application.

Tuin Fitting NOTE:

The correct base is vitally important to the longevity of the build. Please try to have a base that is 100% straight and level. If it is too far out of level then we will not be able to install for you. If we have to abort a fit because of the base will will unfortunately have to charge you for the aborted day. Please try to ensure your base is within +-10mm across the width and depth to avoid any problems with the install and the future performance of your building.
