Roof warped / cracked after a couple of months outside.The roof of this box has warped badly on one side, pulling the fixing nail out of the other side of the roof. Also a crack has formed in the warped roof panel. Very poor quality at any price and certainly not worth buying.

Apex open front nestbox
- Product information
This Classic style open-front nest box is suitable for robins, wrens, pied wagtails and spotted flycatcher.
Made in the UK from thick FSC timber for strength and durability, it also has drainage holes in the base.
Installing your nestbox
For secure and stable fixing, there are two hanging tabs attached to the back of the nestbox, one at the top and one at the bottom. These tabs make it quick and easy to securely fix it in place. Screws not supplied.
RSPB nest boxes are made with thick FSC timber and will survive for many years, even without the use of preservatives.
If you do want to protect your nestbox further, use a water-based preservative (preferably one that complies with standard EN71 part 3 as safe for children's toys). Such paint/preservative types are clearly marked on the container, and are available from DIY stores and hardware shops.
Preservatives should only be applied to the outside of the box. Apply in the winter, when there is a low likelihood of occupancy. This will allow time for any remaining volatile components to evaporate.
For more information about siting a nest box please see the Advice section of the main RSPB website.
