How can I prolong the life of my Unit? / Maintenance
We always suggest you treat your unit (Express Range) once you have erected it, this will help with our weather conditions. Good husbandry and regular treatment of all coops we sell (every 6-8 months) will help prolong the life of your units, use a good quality preserver that has water repelling properties. On the express range as the trays are metal they will suffer from corrosion due to the acid in the birds droppings, so as part of your maintenance you may need to clean this up and apply some protective paint such as galvanised paint.
When your unit is new especially wooden products they will move, swell, contract and will likely need some adjusting, doors may need some tweaking or sanding if they swell too much and catch, catches and locks may move slightly as things settle. Wood being a living material acts different piece to piece, we try hard to make tolerances and gaps to suit what think it will do but sometimes things move a little bit differently.
