Naturally Weather-Resistant Wooden Garden Rooms

We craft our frames using high-quality, durable materials that offer unparalleled strength and resilience against adverse weather conditions. They’re made primarily of premium-grade green oak, which offers:

  • High Tannin Content: Green oak contains high levels of tannin, a natural substance that acts as a preservative and protects the wood from decay and insect damage. This inherent resistance to pests and rotting ensures that our frames remain structurally sound even when exposed to moisture and humidity.
  • Natural Oils: Green oak contains natural oils that provide an additional layer of protection against water penetration and fungal growth. These oils help to seal the wood fibres, preventing more moisture from seeping in and causing deterioration over time.
  • Dimensional Stability: Despite its natural moisture content, green oak exhibits excellent dimensional stability, meaning it is less prone to warping, twisting, or shrinking when exposed to fluctuating weather conditions. This stability ensures that our frames maintain their structural integrity and aesthetic appeal over time.
  • Longevity: Due to its inherent resistance to decay and weathering, green oak has a long lifespan, making it a durable and sustainable choice for outdoor structures. With a low amount of maintenance, our green oak frames can withstand the rigours of the outdoor environment as long as your client wants to use them.

When the wood arrives at our workshop site, our team will check it several times throughout the manufacturing process to determine its quality and suitability for our work. Any wood that’s unsuitable but hasn’t been used can be returned to the mill. If it has been cut, we will ensure it’s responsibly recycled.

Easy-Install Frames for Tradespeople

Our frames are precision-engineered for simplicity and efficiency, ensuring hassle-free installation even in adverse weather conditions. We pre-cut all for your convenience using traditional jointing techniques that make each component slide into place and slot together neatly. It eliminates the need for measurements or cutting on-site and reduces the time spent on assembly for both large and small projects, regardless of weather conditions.

We also provide clear and concise installation instructions with every set of frames and materials. So, even when the weather is poor, you can refer to these instructions to ensure accurate and efficient installation, minimising the risk of errors or delays.

By using these frames, tradespeople can minimise the risk of damage caused by rain, wind, or other environmental factors, ensuring the integrity and longevity of the structure.
  • Increased Productivity: The ease of installation and resilience of our weather-resistant frames contribute to increased productivity on the job site. Tradespeople can work efficiently without worrying about weather-related setbacks, allowing them to focus on completing the project to the highest standards.
  • Long-Term Cost Savings: Opting for weather-resistant frames can lead to significant cost savings in the long run.
