Oeco Construction Methods
Garden Room Construction
Door & Windows
Anthracite PVC-U Door & Window Profiles!
All our garden buildings are supplied with the highest quality anthracite (dark grey) PVC-U door and window profiles.
The high quality anthracite profiles blend perfectly with the natural tones of the beautiful Western Red Cedar external timber.
In addition the dark grey profiles offer elegant sight lines together with high security features, incredible strength and thermal efficiency.
Each door and window section is supplied with heat saving 28mm argon gas filled double glazed units as standard.
Western Red Cedar External Timber Cladding
The Most Desirable External Timber Cladding!
All Oeco garden buildings are clad in high quality Western Red Cedar timber cladding as standard.
Western Red Cedar is the most desirable external timber cladding 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 and can be relied upon to give long and trouble free service under all conditions.
Western Red Cedar has a life expectancy of 40-50 years.
Concrete Pile & Steel Foundations
To Save You The Expense & Inconvenience!
You do not need to provide a concrete base for our garden structures.
To save you the expense and inconvenience, we use specially designed, concrete pile foundations combined with heavy duty galvanised steel legs and plates.
The steel legs can be adjusted which means we can install our garden structures onto either flat or slightly uneven surfaces.
Your garden building is slightly raised off the ground to allow a vented space underneath. This ensures that the structure will not be affected by rising damp.
Traditional Timber Framed Construction
Heavy Duty Structural Timber Frames!
All our garden buildings are manufactured using traditional timber framed walls and floor.
The walls and floor are constructed using heavy duty solid structural graded timber frames that carry the load of the building.
The walls and floor are manufactured using C16 (British Standard) graded structural timber.
The floor timbers are pressure treated and impregnated with Tanelith E wood preservative.
The high grade structural timbers are obtained from well managed, sustainable forests.
Highly Insulated Structural Roof Panels
Thick Rigid Thermal Insulation!
Our garden building roofs are constructed using a highly insulated trapezoidal roof panel system.
The roof panel is sandwiched with thick PIR rigid thermal insulation.
The highly insulated trapezoidal roof panels span the single pitch, with a fall from front to back.
The outside edges of the dark grey roof panels are additionally covered with a matching dark grey aluminium roof edge trim.
Room To Breathe
Prevents Moisture From Entering!
All timber walls are wrapped in a specialist waterproof breathing membrane.
This membrane acts like a one way valve and allows natural moisture to escape out of the building - but prevents moisture from entering the building.
Our structures additionally incorporate double vented timber walls allowing air to circulate, enabling the structure to breathe.
The first vent allows air to circulate between the outer timber cladding and the breathing membrane.
The second vent allows air to circulate between the breathing membrane and the internal rigid thermal insulation panels.
Insulated To Building Regulations
All Year Round Use & Not Just For Summer!
All our garden buildings are built to the highest quality standards.
The roof (145mm thick), floor (178mm thick) and wall (160mm thick) construction contain a combination of Knauf and Kingspan thermal insulation.
Knauf and Kingspan are the market leader in insulation and its products are the most thermally efficient and technically advanced insulation products available today.
A properly insulated garden building means it will suitable for use all year round and not just for summer!.
Luxury Plastered Interior
Warm, Elegant Surface Finish!
Inside all our garden rooms you will find traditional plaster boarded and skimmed walls and ceilings.
A professionally plastered wall gives a warm, elegant surface finish and will also help with sound insulation.
A traditionally plastered finish provides additional insulation and contributes to improved energy efficiency.
