Can I view the Summer Houses Before I Buy?


The internet is a wonderful tool for seeing what is available and it can be very easy to purchase a summerhouse online sitting at home in England & Wales. With just a few clicks you can have made a decision, paid for a new summer house or sun room and before you know it your new garden building will on its way to your home in England & Wales. The fact that it is so easy and quick means sometimes the decision made is the WRONG one.

There are many manufacturers of summer houses who are making these buildings down to a price and not to a set quality and this is where trouble can occur. Your new summer house will have to stand up to the full force of our British weather and any shortcomings in the materials used will expose your summerhouse through its weaknesses.

So how can you tell? The best way to tell whether the summer houses on offer are likely to be made to a good standard is when the retailer actually gives you an opportunity to view the summer house before buying. If they don't then you really need to be very cautious before spending your hard earned money on a summerhouse which could let you down.

It's always worth checking out previous customers feedback, but only on independent sites.

What Other Garden Buildings Companies Don't Want You To Know

What Other Garden Buildings Companies Don't Want You To Know

How Do You Make The Right Decision?

It appears to be easy to buy a summer house - just take a look on the 'web' see a building which takes your fancy and then try to find the best price - easy -peasy! Well - NO. This is because there is such a large range of summer buildings available with the quality (or absence of it with many of the cheap 'make down to a price' summerhouses) varying tremendously. So you do need to be very careful to ensure you are not disappointed.

1st Choice Summer Houses

- are All Made to Very High Standards and Quality.

Buy From an Established Garden Building Business

By buying from a business which have been established a long time you can be reasonably sure that they have gained a great deal of expertise in the market. Also and more importantly, they listen to their customers. You will find that most established businesses actually do have 'bricks and mortar' premises and they use the 'web' as a tool to inform the public of their range of products. These type of businesses tend to employ staff who you can actually talk to (just like in days gone by - how quaint, but nice). Where as many web sites expect you to communicate through the wonders of email, which is good but will never beat 'actually' talking.

1st Choice were established in 1979

- and have been manufacturing and selling garden buildings since then. There is a physical office where you can talk to us - face to face - or visit as well as a display site where you can actually see examples of summerhouse and garden cabins for your self.

Always View Summer Houses for Sale Before Buying

With the 'web', with its flashy web pages, and possibly a glossy brochure you will never really know what your proposed summer house will be like in 'real life'. This is why it's crucial to try to view any potential summer building before delivery. This way will ensure that you can see how well it's been made, that there is enough height inside, you can see than the doors and windows are solidly made (and not flimsy, cheap and nasty) and what quality of timber which has been used. Whilst many summer house firms on the 'web' claim it's best to buy online and that you can save money it's never possible to be sure what you will actually get. If they are not prepared to let you see their buildings beforehand then you need to be very wary. It's a fact that the cheapest price is not always the best value.

Ensure the Timber Used is the Best for the These Summer Houses

It's possible that you can save money by selecting one of these cheaper summer houses or buildings but you need to ensure that only the best and correct materials are used in your new building. This means using timber which comes from the colder parts of Europe such as Sweden, Norway, Finland where it grows very slowly. This cold weather means it has the greatest density ensuring it remains very stable even in the UK variable weather. The cheaper summerhouses are made using faster growing cheaper whitewood trees meaning there is likely to have more movement in your garden. Which is not good in the long run.

1st Choice Sun Rooms

are only made using slow growing Redwood Deal.

Insist on Toughened Glass in Your New Garden Summer Building

You will find the better summerhouse will have toughened glass as standard but on the cheap buildings will have horticultural glass. This is actually 'second grade' glass and you will normally be able to see defects in it. Away from busy activity it can be just about OK but on buildings which are being used regularly it best not to take any chances. If it breaks it breaks into jagged pieces and you would not want your children or grand children getting hurt. Horticultural glass does reduce the cost of the building but is it worth the risk?

1st Choice Contemporary Summer Houses

- have toughened windows.

Do You Want a 'Run of the Mill' Garden Building or Are Your Special?

The advantages for standard sizes and layouts are that this can help to keep the cost down, but quite often if you would like a size to suit YOUR garden or you would like doors and windows in a different place you would be out of luck. This is why it's good to talk to a garden building company who can make your summerhouse to suit YOU. It may be a little more expensive but the extra cost can make the difference between 'putting up with the available options' or getting the best use for YOUR garden.

1st Choice Bespoke Summer Rooms

can be made in 'more or less' any size to suit you. Also the layout and design of these buildings is also flexible and can bespoke to suit you.

Are All Summer houses Sections Pre-Cut to Shape

Ensure that all the gable and shaped ends are supplied cut to shape and size. Unbelievably some cheap summerhouse manufacturers supply shaped ends needing to be cut by you. This saves money but mean more work for you and the possibility of mistakes.

All Summer Buildings from 1st Choice

- have pre-cut panels in shape as well as size.

Check Out Feedback From Customers of Summer houses

The advantage of the 'web' and social media means that any 'bad apples' or companies selling bad buildings can quickly be isolated. So this is one way to find out a little more about the company form whom you be thinking of buying a summerhouse from. Can be very enlightening and can help to put your mind at rest.
