Before being worked, the timber is dried to a moisture content of about 18 per cent. Climatic conditions (eg rain, cold, heat, etc) can affect the moisture content of the timber and can alter timber structures. Similarly, it may impair the function of doors and windows.
Important please note:
1. During the drying process small cracks may appear in the timber. This does not affects its quality and is not covered by the guarantee. As the humidity around the wood increases these cracks will disappear. It takes about two weeks for the timbers to have settled after assembly. It may be necessary to readjust the doors. Ultraviolet light (sunshine) may also cause a change in the colour of the wood.
