Western Red Cedar Cladding
All the cladding, windows, doors and external trims are made form 100% Western Red Cedar from
Canada.This is the traditional timber used for garden buildings and greenhouses because it is very stable
(I.e doesn’t warp or twist) and extremely naturally resistant to rot.The colour of cedar varies naturally
within the same tree between almost white through pinky orange colours to a rich brown colour. All these
natural colours are on display on your summerhouse as we don’t mask them by putting a horrible orange
stain on.
Factory Treatment
We treat all these summerhouses with an oil based wood protector in our workshops, however the
treatment is completely clear so that it doesn’t ruin the natural appearance of the wood.You can, of
course, treat your summerhouse if you want it to be a particular colour, but if you leave it to naturally
mature, it will go an attractive silvery-grey colour which can look quite in place in your garden.You can retreat
with clear any time to increase the lifespan, but even if you don’t treat it again your cedar should last
for many years as long as you keep it clean. For the longest possible life, we recommend that you apply an
oil based treatment every three years and clean it every year.
Georgian Windows & Doors
Made in our own workshops by craftsmen from Western red cedar and glazed with toughened safety
glass. Also internally glazed which gives you a more attractive appearance from the outside.
Top Quality Door & Window Furniture
All in a satin-chrome finish, the window catches, door hinges, bolts and door hooks are of a noticeably
higher quality than the industry standard.
Felt Roof as Standard
Every summerhouse comes with red mineral felt included.This will require replacing every few years if it is
exposed to the weather.
Optional Cedar Slatted Roof
The optional cedar slatted roof not only makes your summerhouse more attractive, it also covers over the
roofing felt and cedar trims at the bottom of the roof.This means that your felt will not be exposed to the
elements and therefore will last for far longer.We highly recommend this option as worth the money in
the long run.
