One of our prospective customers eventually decided to have a local builder build a cedar clad garden office for them. I asked "Are you treating the cedar or leaving it to weather"?
We've put 2 coats of Osmo UV protection oil on it hoping to preserve the lovely colour but we can already see that the colour is losing richness where there's constant sun (not even been THAT constant this summer!!)
We plan to re-oil it annually and hope for the best - we don't want to become slaves to it!!
So many companies say that cedar is zero maintenance - it quite clearly isn't.
If you want a truly zero maintenance exterior that will maintain it's "just installed" look for 25 years then the QCB and the QC6 are the only design in the U.K which fits the bill...
The QCB "basic" garden office...
(best value garden office in the U.K...)
The upmarket QC6 garden office...
(top spec building regulations garden studio with loads of options and flexibility...)
This is how the cedar or pressure treated timber ends up if you don't paint or stain it regularly...
You can see more information on why timber needs looking after here.

My apologies for not writing sooner but I just wanted to let you and the team know how pleased I am with the garden studio.
The fitter team were great and everything went smoothly I am pleased to say. I have completed the internal painting and fitting out of furniture etc so my long awaited garden office is up and running. With the wonderful summer weather the aircon has been a real boon!
The only very minor problem was that the matching aircon fused switch was not packed so the team sourced one locally. They said they would send on the matching one to me and I would be grateful if you could arrange that. Could you also let me have a receipt for the payment etc.
Once again many thanks to the whole team and the efficient and hard working fitters.
I've now moved in and it's fabulous! Thanks to you and your team for an excellent job. Wishing you continued growth - let me know when you take the company public! All the best,
