“Rook Potting Shed - Premium Product but problem with...”

Written on: 01/12/2021 by HughHBarclay (1 review written)

If you have a Swallow (GB) Ltd Rook Potting Shed with optional guttering fitted, check out its ability to collect and remove rainwater.

I purchased a new Rook Potting Shed from Bourne Buildings, Farnham, Surrey, but within days, during moderate rainfall, water spilled over the rear edge of the guttering and down over the rear wooden wall panels.

Swallow have investigated but now say there is no problem with the design. However, they visited site three times, each time adjusting or experimenting with a different solution.
Despite Swallow seeing the problem for themselves, they have now walked away from the situation having provided a very untidy and unsatisfactory temporary solution. Pictures can be provided.

Why put this amount of effort into solving a problem that does not exist!!

I can only conclude, as far as Rain Water Removal is concerned, the standard Rook production models are ‘not fit for purpose’.

If you have the same model of Potting Shed from Swallow (GB) Ltd, then presumably, the same problem exists. You will also need Swallow (GB) Ltd to come up with a fix.

We just need our Supplier (Swallow (GB) Ltd) to act responsibly and design or engineer a proper long term remedy, for the benefit of ALL.
