When first moving into any new home, the higher the room temperature the heating is run, the more shrinkage will occur. The heating system is designed to run constantly at a lower temperature, which is more comfortable, efficient and consistent for the property. We cannot guarantee against shrinkage or warping of doors, floors, and timberwork etc. made up of natural materials. We recommend that all gates are securely closed to reduce warping and risk of wind damage. After around 6 months (at your convenience during normal working hours), upon request, we will return to carry out remedial snagging e.g. easing doors, fill and redecorate main shrinkage cracks etc.
Vehicles are to be parked in your own garage or driveway, not left on the road. The end of the cul-de-sac (in front of Plot 1) should be left free for use by visitors to the close.
