Concrete foundations & timber framed construction
Each garden building is constructed onto concrete pad foundations complete with heavy duty steel piles and feet. The steel feet can be adjusted to accommodate uneven ground surfaces. The whole garden building is raised off the ground to allow the free flow of air underneath, eliminating any risk of condensation or rising damp.
We use traditional timber framed construction which allows total flexibility in the design, construction and finished product. For example you can decide the exact location of any doors and windows during construction. You can tailor the garden building to suit your specific needs and we offer you the ability to choose bespoke sizes.
Luxury plastered interior
All our garden buildings come complete with traditional plaster boarded and skimmed walls and ceiling. The inside of your garden building will be finished to the same high standards as a new house.
A luxury professionally plastered interior gives a warm, elegant surface finish and will help with sound insulation and improved energy efficiency. Please Note: We do not install any sub-standard finishes to the walls or ceiling to cut costs, such as vinyl, melamine or plastic boards.
Each garden building comes complete with a mains consumer unit, 4 x double sockets, 1 x 2 way light switch, internal ceiling light panel and 2 x external lights.
All wiring is fully concealed within the timber framework. On completion of the garden building you will be provided with a Part P electrical certificate for the testing of all the electrical components and wiring.
Door & window profiles, glazing & locks
The PVCu doors and windows are supplied with anthracite (dark grey) profiles on the outside with white profiles on the inside. All glazing units are A rated tinted Planitherm argon gas filled double glazed units complete with super warm edge spacers.
Each individual aluminium reinforced PVCu door and window is fitted with insurance approved locks. We are also able to offer optional PVCu and Aluminium doors and windows in a variety of sizes and colour finishes.
All cedar garden buildings are externally clad in premium Western Red Cedar. Western Red Cedar is one of most desirable external timber claddings due to its rich and variable colours, high resistance to decay, durability and natural preservatives. The rich warm brown, red and pink colours and texture of Western Red Cedar gives any building a touch of individuality.
Western Red Cedar has a red/pink/brown colour tone and adds an additional aesthetical aspect to the garden room. Western Red Cedar has a minimum life expectancy of 30+ years. Our classic cedar designs are externally clad in Western Red Cedar and the contemporary cedar designs are externally clad in Western Red Cedar with composite anthracite (dark grey) trims.
