Elite Materials

and Construction

Siberian Larch

We only use the best materials at Elite Garden Rooms. Below is a full specification of the materials used in the construction of our garden rooms.

The most important decision will be your cladding finish. We get our cladding from the best supplier in Scotland that only sells the highest grade architectural cladding. The standard is already a very high specification Siberian larch that will last over 30 years without any treatment.

This can be left to silver but we prefer to give it 2 coats of Osmo oil to protect the timber and keep it looking as new as possible. See below…

Red Cedar

Then we have western red cedar which is more expensive but has a totally different look. The most popular last year, since we started supplying it painted with 2 coats of paint that brings out the grain and protects it for up to six years without any further upkeep.

The top of the range western red cedar with a special 2 paint coating to give the best looking cedar clad garden rooms in Scotland.See below for and example…
