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.

Just thought I'd report that we are very pleased with our garden studio which you installed in October 2016. It was well used over Christmas when my son and his wife came to stay and they reported it to be warm and cosy. The construction team did a great job and we were impressed by their hard work, care and attention to detail.
Well done and thanks,

I hope you are well. I just wanted to say how incredibly impressed I am with my office and the entire team responsible. I cannot speak highly enough about the company, from the guidance I received from yourself to the unbelievably hard working fitters who worked in the most appalling conditions. Rob and his colleague were just as awesome and efficient.
Once again thank you so much, I know that my office is just a small example of your services but it has transformed my working environment but more importantly my living room is finally after all these years back to being a place where I get to switch off from work.
