I just wanted to drop a few words to say thank you for the excellent service my wife and I have received from Crane Garden Buildings.
Mr G - Cumbria
Crane Garden Buildings
Crane Garden Buildings is a family run business and we have been making timber buildings in Norfolk for over 40 years. We are a market leader in producing high quality timber buildings of all types.
We are proud to acknowledge that much of our trade is built around our reputation. We firmly believe that this is because we provide a personal service from design stage to installation, where the customer always comes first and is delighted with their building.
Our buildings are exceptional and unrivalled. We are always in the market place ensuring that any improvements in products, techniques and components are implemented by us straight away. We employ skilled craftsmen and a well regarded installation team to finish your building to the very highest of our expected standards.
We manufacture all our buildings to order so if our standard buildings are not quite what you have in mind then we are very happy to discuss your requirements. These are just some of the reasons why we are better:
Timber - We are an FSC® certified company and we partner a timber mill in North Sweden who are also FSC certified thus ensuring a constant supply of high quality certified timber managed in a sustainable way. Read more about how and where we source our timber.
We use Scots Pine that is sourced from an area of forest that has often been growing for more than 130 years at latitudes above 65° North. In these conditions the trees are slowly grown making the timber more dense which ensures a high quality, close grain less susceptible to dead knots.
The thickness of our timber in terms of the walls, floor, roof, framework and the general quality of our construction means that our buildings are exceptionally strong and robust and we strongly recommend viewing them.
Joinery- We hand make our buildings in our workshops. Skilled carpenters make the doors and windows for all the buildings that we produce. This ensures that the high quality we demand is met and that we can make bespoke doors and windows to our customers requirements. Watch this short video to see how we make our garden buildings:
Roof Coverings- We offer a variety of roof coverings from extreme wear, heavy duty felt to Cedar Shingles, Slate Effect tiles and Green Living roofs.
Lining and Insulation – We offer and some buildings have as standard, a 3 stage lining and insulation process which means that you can use your building year round and it looks beautiful too. The finish can be painted for a light and airy look or left natural for a warm feel. View our video to see the differences between lining options:
Paint Systems – We offer our unique Valtti paint system which has an unrivalled longevity and protection and is available in many beautiful colours to compliment your surroundings. Read more about our opaque Valtti Paint System, or our transluscent Sikkens Paint System.
Security Pack-For our exceptionally strong and robust Sheds and Workshops we offer a 3 step Security Pack consisting of window bars mortised into the window frames, non-returnable screws used on the hinges and a heavy duty, 7 lever sliding bolt (anti-sawing, anti-picking, anti-cropping and anti-prising).
Bespoke-We offer a comprehensive range of buildings as standard but as we build each building as it is ordered you can have yours exactly as you would like it. Use our online Building Planner Tool to design your own garden building and tailor the door, window, roof, interior and exterior to your exact requirements.
Delivery and Installation -Our experienced and professional fitters deliver and install all our buildings free of charge.
I just wanted to let you know that my Garden Studio was put together yesterday and today here in Frome! AND I LOVE IT! I also wanted to say that the two gentleman who came to our house and erected the studio in the garden, were polite and professional. They are both a credit to your company and we will shout 'Crane' from the rooftops here in Somerset as the most fantastic service and product of course! The response I have had so far from friends and family is astounding! - hopefully this will produce orders! We very much look forward to sitting and admiring our home and garden from the studio, it will be an asset to our family life. Thank you and it's been an absolute pleasure doing business with yourselves. Please let the gentleman know how happy I was! They manoeuvred the trailer and van in my rather difficult driveway with ease and not one complaint! THANK YOU

Carl & Barry have now departed for their next job! They arrived at 7am this morning and have not stopped! Needless to say we are delighted. Thank you for all your help and guidance over the last couple of months.
Mr T - Berkshire
I think I've spoken to everyone there over these past weeks and I'm sure you must have thought 'it's that mad Irish woman from London again'! Anyway, I just wanted to say how delighted I am with my new Summerhouse, which has surpassed all expectations. I've never been to any of your showrooms, but it was your fantastic website, the wonderful customer service from each of you, and gut feeling that made me think I was making the right decision in choosing Crane Sheds and Summerhouses. Thank you all so much, and last but not least please pass on our thanks on to Ian and his colleague, whose name escapes me, for delivering and installing the summerhouse... two of the nicest and most charming gentlemen you could wish to meet and true ambassadors for your company. From one happy customer J

We just want to sing the praises of the men who work for your company. Our garden shed was delivered and placed in our garden with speed and efficiency. They arrived as stated and worked without stopping. We experienced a problem with the felting, and the follow-up team replaced the felt - they have done a superb job and have left us with a shed to be proud of. Big pat on the back for them all.
Mr & Mrs R - Lancashire
We would like to thank you for the installation of our Salthouse Studio on Friday. The installation team were first class and most professional. My wife is now fitting it out as her sewing room.
The quality of the building is second to none, the amount of light from the full height windows is better than expected and ideal for crafts.
Thank you again for the first class building and a first class service.
