When you are looking for a product online, especially one you would deem an investment piece, it can be hard to figure out what material you want it to be made of. It’s only natural to ask yourself if you want your new Garden Building, Log Cabin or Climbing Frame to be a timber product. Why would you choose a timber product over the other options available such as metal or plastic?
It only takes a brief glance out of the window to see the difference in the look of various building materials. Whilst brick can look elegant, it is normally quite an expensive product and associated with houses, rather than Garden Buildings.
Although another durable material, metal simply does not look as elegant in your garden as a timber log cabin would. Even if you opt for panel products, such as a Log Cabin built with wood panelling rather than individual timber pieces like we provide, it will look like a higher quality product than if you opted for a metal panelled shed.
We chose slow grown spruce because, even amongst the other timber options, it is the best type of wood. Our competitors often offer a mixed wood or even pine. Pine typically starts off light (although sometimes with a pink tinge) but reacts, over time, to the light. It then becomes darker meaning the product you first purchased is not what you end up with.
Timber is easily worked with, often coming cut to size which takes the stress out of construction. As we use tongue and groove timber pieces, we make it even easier to get your Garden Building built. You don’t have to worry about cutting pieces to size, or ensuring it all comes together, we have taken that stress away for you.
Your timber product will come from us in pre cut pieces, which will be pressure treated if that is the product you have chosen. In addition to this, it comes with all the fixings you need for a high quality cabin - including parts other companies typically charge you for such as vents.
Although the choice is yours, the benefits of adding a timber product to your garden rather than a different material are clear. If you have any questions about our timber products, including the building process, get in touch with our sales team on 01234 731815 or visit our FAQ page.
