    Materials

    Timber

    All timber used in the production of our garden buildings is, at a minimum, tanalised (pressure treated). This ensures a greater life span for our timber compared to non-tanalised timber.

    We are one of the only companies in the country that use an air dry tanalising process. Our second factory site is dedicated to this process and allows all timber to return to the same moisture content as it was prior to treatment, ensuring that you don’t experience excessive shrinkage, twisting or splitting.

    All timber is all high quality, slow grown, with a tight grain and is less susceptible to dead knots.

    Our company ethos of developing strong links with trusted suppliers has enabled us to work with leading Swedish mills and UK timber companies over the past 35 years to ensure our quality demands and requirements are always met. Our Scandinavian timber is all FSC certified.

    Framework

    All builds have closely spaced substantial framework (3” x 2” in summerhouses and workshops) which creates an extremely strong and long-lasting building.

    Cladding

    Our cladding styles and thickness are unrivalled allowing you to create a truly bespoke building.

    32mm Thermowood

    1st Grade Western Red Cedar

    A stunning cladding used within our Outdoor Rooms, cedar cladding not only looks stunning, it lasts for several decades. Vertical clad boards also give a contemporary appearance. Left naturally, cedar tuns an attractive silver/grey, however, when used with recommended treatments, the natural colours are enhanced and maintained for longer.

    Roofing

    All buildings come as standard with polyester backed, high performance roofing felt. Options and upgrades include the following:

    38kg Felt

    A thicker and more hard wearing option to our standard polyester based felt

    Isola Felt Shingles

    A market leading alternative to roofing felt – attractive, long lasting and maintenance free, Isola felt shingles are even used as a roof covering on houses in Norway

    Onduline

    Long lasting and perfect for workshops and other buildings from our range, we only use Onduline, and not inferior options on the market. Onduline roofing sheets are still fixed to T&G roofs, ensuring far more support then when installed only on roof rafters.

    Cedar Shingles

    A stunning and long lasting option – Cedar shingles complement any of our range of buildings, and can transform the look. Individually sized shingles, overlapped to each other create a roof that not only looks great, it will last for 35 + years. Cedar shingles are installed on T&G roofs, with the addition of roofing membrane and tile batons.

    Firestone Rubber

    (Contemporary Outdoor Rooms only)

    Market leading Firestone roofs are a standard feature within our Outdoor Room range – single piece EDPM sheets are glued and fixed in position. An expected lifespan of up to 50 years ensures a maintenance free roof for many years.

    Internal Membrane

    A standard feature of our insulated buildings, we offer an internal lining membrane as an option across our workshop and summerhouse range. Sandwiched between the building framework and exterior cladding and roof boards it has a number of benefits.

    Insulation

    Our insulated buildings only use Kingspan high performance PIR insulation. This has far higher insulation values compared to polystyrene or Rockwool equivalents. The Kingspan insulation is placed within the internal cavity wall prior to it being boarded out.
