Nine and a Half years

Recently I had the pleasure of returning to a clients home and checking the nest boxes for maintenance. They were installed Nine and a half years ago. Almost no signs of ageing. The paintwork was not cracked or chipped. No splitting of the plywood. They only required a quick clean out and lick of paint. Oh, the hinge was rusted solid. I replaced it with a solid brass type which is has been my standard for quite some years now. It brings great joy to my heart knowing that putting passion into building proper nest boxes has paid off. In todays world how many exterior products can last that long and still continue.

So when you’re ready to purchase a box think about the longevity of it all. Will you get you moneys worth?
