By deciding to buy from an established business you will find this is the best option as you can be sure that their expertise in the home office industry is key to their success. Also, normally this will only happen when they have been selling the right buildings to their customers at the right price and this normally follows after listening to them. By choosing a business with a fixed ‘brick and mortar’ address’ is always good as you can actually be sure there is somewhere to contact if you need to.
If the business is only available on the internet then how can you be sure who they are and whether they will be here today, tomorrow and in the future. If you need to contact them in the future then having a fixed address is always a good thing to have and is reassuring . Sure – emails are great but you are dependent on these being responded to, and quickly.

Insulation And Lining
The ‘internet’ is an amazing thing (thanks Sir Tim Berners-Lee) but the flashiest of web pages and glossy brochure can never show a REAL feel for what you are buying. This is not a problem with many standard items but when selecting YOUR new office or garden room it’s important to know that your expectations will be met with the same as what you ordered. By being able to view your proposed building you can be reassured of the quality and see how well constructed it is, you can check the height to ensure you won’t bang your head and can see if the doors and windows are made from stern stuff.

This will help you to distinguish the ‘wheat from the chaff’ – i.e. the made down to a price cheap and nasty ones, which are readily available on the internet, and the well constructed, properly made buildings which are designed to last a long time. The claims by the retailers, who only sell online, that it’s good to buy online and that you can save money may be true to a certain degree BUT there is only one way to be sure you won’t end up with that ‘cheap and nasty’ building in your garden. By viewing beforehand you can save yourself from the stress and potential heartache. And it VITAL to remember that the cheapest price is not always the best value.
Standard sizes and designs have certain advantages as these can help keep the costs down a little however why not consider a building to suit YOU and YOUR garden. This will enable you to utilise your new garden office and allow it to have the best use and to fit in the space that you have available. By deciding on a company which can make a garden building in the size and design for you then this is what can happen.
This might be a little more expensive but this small extra cost can be the difference between being 100% satisfied or ‘making do’. Well worth considering surely? At 1st Choice we know that your needs are the most important so that all our garden rooms are made to suit the customers requirements in every way. There are no compromises on this so just let us know what you would like and give us the opportunity to deliver.
Bespoke 1st Choice garden buildings in ‘more or less’ any design or size to suit you – it’s in their DNA.
Your Choice Always Comes First
It can be cheaper to use inferior grades of wood or whitewood and can be OK, to a certain degree, if you only want a building to last a year or two. But by insisting on the better redwood timber you can ensure a long life for your new ‘pride and joy’ for your home. Redwood by its very nature grows slower than white wood so the grain is more tightly compacted and will last longer. It also tends to retain more of the resin within the wood which gives it a waxy feeling which further enhances the virtues.
Whitewood because it grows so quickly is prone to having little knots dropping out. So redwood, even though it can be a little more expensive, is the best option for a long term building. The timber on these buildings are pressure treated as standard for even longer life. As a bonus, not seen on many other buildings. On top of the roof boards are batons which allow air to circulate under the roof covering.

Timber From Sustainable Sources
It amazes me that many of the cheap buildings, besides being made of chipboard etc and other nasty materials, are delivered in pieces which you have to build some of the panels yourself. Absolutely Bonkers!
If you are buying a cheap office building then always double check what you are getting. And why even consider a garden room which is not delivered and erected for you. Save a lot of worry and you can just get on with your life in your new building. Finally ensure you know about the type of treatment used on your proposed building.

Why Choose Insulated Garden Rooms In The UK?
Can I Insulate My Garden Room After Delivery?
You will need to tack this insulation into place to ensure it stays still whilst you fix the inner walls into place (and this can be hardboard – maybe with an attractive veneer on it -, T&G boarding or plywood). On the walls, this is quite easy to do, but the roof is a different proposition. It can be quite tricky due to gravity working against you and making adding the ceiling boards into place very fiddly. What I recommend, and this is what I did, is only to use polystyrene instead of fibreglass. You then cut this slightly oversize so when you put it in between the roof joists, so it stays there on its own. You would need someone then to hold the roof boards into place whilst you screw it in place. It’s a good idea after you have completed that to use cover strips over the joins to finish it off.
