Our Cladding Materials

Scroll through to learn more about the different cladding and construction styles we use for our garden buildings.

Overlap Cladding

Our overlap cladding is manufactured using thick panels that are nailed to vertical, internal framing with an overlapping profile. Overlap cladding is the easiest and cheapest construction method, making it a cost effective option. This type of construction is great for those looking for a secure, dry storage solution but we would encourage those looking to spend a lot of time inside the shed to consider a Shiplap alternative.

Tongue & Groove Cladding

Although Tongue & Groove boards are generally used for the roof or floor, we do occasionally use this as cladding. This cladding is manufactured using 12mm tongue and groove boards that lock together and are then nailed to the vertical internalframing. This type of cladding is robust, strong and resistant to water ingress and draughts.

Shiplap Cladding

We manufacture our shiplap cladding using thick, 12mm tongue and groove boards that lock together and are then nailed to vertical internal framing. Featuring a protective lip, this cladding protects your building from the weather with a tight seal. This type of construction is great for those looking to spend lots of time within the shed, summerhouse or playhouse or for a more robust and strong storage solution.

Log Cabin Construction

Our Log Cabins work a little differently! Rather than cladding that attaches to an internal framing, the log boards lock into each other with a tongue and groove joint, board to board, as the building is being constructed. The tongue and groove joint forms a tight seal against the weather, reducing the risk of water ingress and draughts. We offer our cabins with a choice of 19mm, 28mm, 34mm or 44mm thickness, getting stronger and more robust with each thickness.

Shiplap+ Cladding

Our Shiplap+ Cladding is used for the outside walls of our Insulated Garden Rooms. This cladding is manufactured using strong and thick 16mm interlocking tongue and groove boards that offer the most premium finish available. The Shiplap+ profile gives the board's added support for strength and weatherproofing. This cladding is fixed to thick frame with tongue and groove on the inside and insulation in-between.

Dip Treatment

Our buildings are dip treated during manufacture as standard. This is the process in which we apply a water based colourant for protection whilst in storage and transit. This is not a preservative therefore the building will require a preservative and waterproofing top coat application as soon after construction as possible. This is required to validate your 10 year anti-rot guarantee.

Timber is cut ready for treatment.

Timber is dipped into a cylider containing preservative.

Preservative is absorbed into the surface of the timber.

Timber is removed from cylinder containing preservative.

Timber is left to airdry.

Pressure Treatment

Pressure treatment is a high pressure chemical process designed to preserve exposed timber, by providing optimal protection against insect attack, fungal attack and decay. The pressure treatment process impregnates preservative chemicals deep into the timber fibres to protect it against the elements. This process provides your building with 15 years anti rot guarantee, providing you apply a waterproof treatment once installed and annually thereafter.

timber is loaded into a chamber & a vacuum empties timber cells of air.

Timber is flooded under vacuum with preservative.

Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.

Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.

Timber is left to dry under a low pressure.

Our Roof & Floor Materials

Scroll through to learn more about the different materials we use for the roof and floor of our garden buildings.

Solid Sheet Board

Solid sheet board is an engineered wood formed by adding adhesive and then compressing layers of oriented strands of wood to form a strong and robust panel. This material is perfect for everyday use and will form a strong base or ceiling to your building. If you require a more heavy duty flooring for holding large tools and equipment, you may want to consider upgrading to tongue and groove.

12mm Tongue & Groove Boards

Toungue & Groove boards make the perfect roof and floor for frequently used buildings as well as those that will be storing heavier items such as work benches, tools or furniture. The boards interlock to form a tight seal, helping them spread the load within the building. We'd always recommend upgrading to tongue and groove boards if you plan to spend a lot of time within the building or if you're storing heavier items.

16mm Tongue & Groove Boards

The thicker Tongue & Groove boards are used for our more premium range of log cabins and insulated rooms. Working in the same method as the 12mm boards, the weight from your belongings is shared between the interlocking boards. Ideal for holding heavy office equipment, exercise machines or large pieces of furniture, these thick interlocking boards will remain strong and robust.

Our Glazing Styles

Scroll through to learn more about the different glazing styles.

Double Glazing

Double glazing is constructed using two panes of glass, separated by a small gap. Our double glazed windows offer excellent heat retaining qualities and greater sound proofing, and by upgrading to double glazing, you increase the year-round usability of your building! We use this product as standard within our insulated garden room range and is available as an upgrade on our log cabins.


Styrene is a lightweight product that offers a safe and shatterproof alternative to traditional glass glazing. Used as standard within our shed, summerhouse, playhouse and greenhouse ranges, styrene is ideal for those with busy gardens or young children.

Our Roof Styles

Scroll through to learn more about the different materials we use for the roof and floor of our garden buildings.

Hipped Roofline

A hipped roofline is where the wooden sides of the roof slope upwards to meet one central peak, creating generous roof height inside. While boasting a classic and stylish aesthetic this design is also very practical. Hip roofs offer a premium and robust build that can stand up to harsh weather conditions.

Reverse Apex Roofline

Similarly to the apex roofline, the highest point of the roof is in the center, where the two wooden panels meet, except this runs from side to side, rather than from front to back. This creates a space to work comfortably. Boasting a classic and traditional aesthetic, this style of roof is elegant and stylish.

Pent Roofline

Features a sheet of wood that slopes from the front of the building to the back. The slope provides sufficient height for the door at the front but also ensures rain can run off the back of the building. Pent sheds offer a stylish and contemporary look but are also extremely practical. Ideal for buildings that are going to be situated against a fence or wall.

Apex Roofline

An apex roofline provides an elegant and classic look to the building. With an apex shed, the highest point of the roof is central, where the two wooden sections meet. This is great for those who plan to do a lot of work inside their shed, as the optimum head height is central.

Our Roof Covering Options

Scroll through to learn more about the different roof covering options.

Mineral Felt

Mineral felt is designed to protect your building against whatever the weather can throw. Our heavyweight felt is 50% thicker than standard felt, with a glass fibre and bitumen base. Ideal for buildings in an exposed area it provides a tough, durable and weatherproof membrane. This product is available as an upgrade across our range and comes in a range of colours!


Our most premium roof covering is EPDM, a synthetic rubber membrane designed to give the best protection against the elements. This product is extremely strong, robust and heavy-duty, ideal for buildings that are in an exposed area. EPDM is not only a practical option but also looks great, and will last the test of time!


Shingles are made using a non-rotting, glass fibre base and features a UV resistant mineral surface. Not only do shingles provide a strong, heavy-duty and effective barrier of protection, they look great too! Adding a premium and stylish finish to your building. This product is available as an upgrade across our range and comes in multiple colours and designs.
