To afford a light and airy feel inside your Cley, there are windows in 3 of the 4 sides, as well as in the double doors. 

The windows are all made from 4mm toughened safety glass, and are finished with polished brass or chrome furniture and fitted with draught excluders. You can also choose to have double glazing. 

You can choose from plain, leaded or Georgian-style windows.

Roof Options


Our Summerhouses come with your choice of roof covering: select either Cedar Shingle Tiles or Slate Effect Roofing Tiles in terracotta or grey. Both of these roof coverings add longevity to your Garden Building, they don't require much maintenance, and they are attractive and sit harmoniously in outdoor settings

Cedar Shingle Tiles

We use only the finest quality Canadian Blue Label Cedar Shingles expertly tiled by our own skilled craftsmen to give a traditional finish which will 'silver' with age. They are expected to last 25-35 years and they complete the look of your Summerhouse.

Grey Slate Effect Tiles

These individually laid synthetic slates finally bring nature and technology together providing the ultimate protection against UV rays, wind, hail and fire.

Terracotta Slate Effect Tiles

This roofing product carries a 50 year limited warranty. Opt for a more traditional grey or terracotta for a different look which looks great with the lighter paint shades.

Paint Options


Our Summerhouses are available in one of two paint colour ranges: Valtti or Farrow & Ball. Both of these paint ranges offer an opaque finish with a long re-decoration cycle in a wide range of natural colours that will fit perfectly into garden environments. Please see below for information on both paint ranges.

Cladding Options


Our timber cladding is machined from very high quality Redwood grown in Northern Sweden, close to the Arctic Circle.

Due to the low temperature in this part of the world, these slowly grown trees produce a much more dense and stable timber than others. The timber mill we partner with, and have very close links to, is FSC® certified like ourselves.

We machine our cladding into particularly thick boards, and because it's a slowly grown timber with an exceptionally close grain, the additional benefits of our cladding are its strength and durability. We machine a capillary groove into our shiplap to reduce the risk of water ingress; and also give our shiplap rounded edges so that paints and stains grab and adhere with maximum effectiveness and coverage.

We clad your building in shiplap as standard, but we also offer weatherboard cladding for a more rustic finish

Shiplap Cladding - (ex 19 x 125mm)

Weatherboard Cladding - (21>8 x 125mm)

Floor Options


When choosing the internal options for your new Summerhouse, you have the following flooring options:

Floor Thickness

Our standard (ex 19mm thick) and robust floorboards are set on closely spaced tanalised floor joists, but we can also offer heavy duty (ex 38mm thick) flooring if you are planning on storing particularly heavy items or if there's going to be a lot of movement inside your new Garden Building.

Lacquered Floor

The lacquer is applied to the floorboards in either Natural or Light Oak to help protect the timber, as well as giving it a nice sheen.

Engineered Flooring

This option can be chosen as an alternative to a lacquered floor. There are four different colours to choose from, and the engineered flooring offers a chance to further personalise your new garden building, whether you’re aiming for a traditional, rustic or contemporary style. 

Our engineered floorboards sit on top of the existing floorboards, with a layer of underlay in between the two, providing further insulating and sound absorbing benefits.

Heritage Oak Engineered Floor

Dark Oak Engineered Floor

Shade Oak Engineered Floor

Natural or Light Oak Lacquered Floor

Electrics


For lighting and power in your building, you will get an electric pack with the option of adding a heater to enable you to use it all year-round.

Professionally fitted by qualified electricians who take all the wiring to a consumer unit ready for you to connect to your electricity supply. Internal wiring will be fitted behind the internal lining.

Please see the specification tab to see what is included in the electric pack.  

Guttering


Guttering collects the water run-off from the roof and then deposits the water away from the building: this stops the bottom boards rotting prematurely, adding an even longer life to your building. We offer the guttering in either black or white.

When installed, we fix the guttering all the way around the hipped roof with a downspout. The addition of guttering also allows you to install a water butt.

White Guttering

Black Guttering

Base


All our buildings require a level, solid concrete base of the correct size.

The single most important part of installing a garden building is the base. Bases must be:

  • LEVEL
  • Of the correct size
  • Square i.e. have right angled corners

A concrete base supports your building in the best possible way, adding longevity, as well as creating a substantial distance between your building and surface water.

We can supply a 100mm deep reinforced concrete base ready for your building, laid by our professionals, in advance of your building being installed by us. The site must be clear and reasonably level for us to do this.

The base should always be a minimum of 50mm out of the ground to prevent surface water or puddles affecting your building i.e. rotting it.

The base you have must be made to the plans we give you when you order your building, whether we install the base, or you get a trusted builder to do it for you. 

Bases for larger buildings, and in particular garages, need to be built to exact dimensions - we create special base drawings for our garages, since they sit directly on the concrete base and must be anchored into place.

Always get your garden building base laid by a professional, whether that is us, or a local builder you trust.

We constantly strive to ensure all our materials and techniques are the best that we can source and provide. We lead the market in producing exceptional quality timber buildings. Couple this with our personal and bespoke service and you will be totally delighted with your building.
