The bench was installed approximately 7 years ago and I am pleased to report it is in very good order, despite having had no formal maintenance during this period. The timber does not appear to have deteriorated at all thanks to the clever design and quality materials used; i.e. the bench is
constructed from shaped sweet-chestnut boards, attached to a steel frame, so that the boards are able to shed water and none of the timber is contact with the ground.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Tim for similar work, his service was delivered within a fixed time frame and within budget and he was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with.
