Lugarde make some of the best log cabins in the UK and more importantly they are made to match YOUR needs. All of their products are very versatile and can meet most things thrown at them. But the reasons Lugarde stand out from the ordinary are many as follows.
Decades of Experience. Lugarde have been producing the very best log cabins and garden rooms since 1978. And since then they have developed their range to reflect the quality right down to the smallest detail. This dedication have enabled Lugarde to become the market leader in the UK and the Netherlands.
Bespoke Log Cabin Are The ‘Norm’ They understand that all customers are unique and that their choice of cabin should reflect their particular requirements. Although there is a choice of standard designs over 90% of the buildings supplied are custom made. That is the beauty of being the manufacturer so every design and size is possible – even odd sizes like 5.78m x 4.34m present no problem. AND the best part is that there is no premium for being fully bespoke. So you can get our Lugarde log cabins delivered to Surrey for the price of their standard models.

Spray impregnated doors & windows:
Spray-impregnation is a treatment to protect windows and doors against the fungi and rotting process. This treatment will take care that all parts are protected, that can’t be reached after installation. You can choose between a colourless spray-impregnation or one of Lugarde’s four translucent colours. For optimal protection we advise you to stain the windows and doors within one year. Attention If you choose the paint treatment for your windows and doors it is not necessary to choose the spray-impregnation. During staining a pre-treatment is included. Because Lugarde check EVERY order, this will be checked accurately in advance.
Painted doors & windows:
Would you like to paint as less as possible? Then choose a factory-treatment for your window and doors. Because you want to enjoy your log cabin as long as possible, we will protect your windows and doors against weather influences. This is done by treating them twice with a spray-treatment as a pre-treatment and then by painting in the colour of your choice. With these three layers the windows and doors are protected against the ‘great outdoors’. They will use the Dutch quality brand Sigma paint. Attention If you choose the paint treatment for your windows and doors it is not necessary to choose the spray-impregnation. During staining a pre-treatment of spray-impregnation is included. Because Lugarde check EVERY order, this will be checked accurately in advance.
Spray treatment of entire building:
Spray Treated Walls.
The entire building is treated including the parts that can’t be reached after assembly.
Your log cabin will be protected against the fungi and rotting process from day one.
You can choose from four translucent colours.
You will still need to treat the outside of your cabin within one year to protect it against any weather influences.
Pressure treatment is an alternative for staining and is an option for your cabin. So what does pressure treating mean?
Additional treatments like staining are not necessary anymore. You have a choice between a green or brown colour.
With pressure treating, the impregnating fluid is forced into the wood. The impregnated wood becomes swollen, so it is necessary to allow a longer delivery time to allow for drying.
When a log cabin is pressure treated there is no need for additional treatment.
After a while the wood will start to turn grey. The wood does not have to be stained but it is possible if you don’t like the grey colour.
Due to there high pressure during pressure treatment it is possible that the wood will change. Sometimes cracks and chinks may occur.
Fascia boards, roof beams and canopies will also be pressure treated.
Windows and doors will not be pressure treated.
|✅||We use only high-quality timber that originates from northern European countries with cold climates. The lower temperatures cause the trees to grow more slowly, meaning that the growth rings are closer together and the wood is more stable and durable.|
|✅||Our timber is kiln dried to a moisture content of approximately 14%-16% in a special drying room , thus reducing subsequent shrinkage.|
|✅||We keep wood waste and sawdust to a minimum and reuse it for other purposes.|

Treatment of Log Cabins In The Garden
Log cabins don’t normally come with treatment and is an extra option although some may, mostly with a water based treatment or a spirit based treatment which is far better. It may even come fully pressure treated, also known as tanalised treatment. Or you may find the cheap garden cabins have a treatment with is just like coloured water and about as much use as that and in these cases you need to be very careful.
As a rule the normal water based treatment needs to be re-coated within 4 weeks of being delivered. If it’s treated with a spirit based treatment then ideally you should ensure that you re-treat your building before the first winter after assembly. The reason for this is that first treatment acts as a primer and undercoat and the coat you put on is like a top coat.
After putting this coat of treatment on you wouldn’t normally have to re-treat for 2-3 years except in very exposed areas. However, bear in mind when you buy a cabin offering a 10 year guarantee you will find, if you can find the small print, that you have to treat your new building every year to ensure it’s covered. Clearly this means their treatment is totally useless and it’s only the fact that you are treating it which gives the building a long life. This applies to all garden cabins in spite of any warranty offered.
The pressure treated buildings don’t normally need any extra treatment against rotting for 15 years and, although, it’s a little more expensive can be worth considering. The only thing I would say is – where the shed or building faces into the weather and during driving rain – you may get damp patches on the inside of the shed. This won’t hurt the building and will dry out very quickly however if you put Thompson Water Seal treatment on this will provide a waterproof coat to the building.
If you are thinking of buying a pressure treated cabin then ensure you buy one which has all the timber pressure treated including the floor AND walls. You will find many cabin companies offering tanalised or pressure treated shed but it’s only the walls which are treated. This is OK to a point but you can’t beat ALL of the shed being pressure treated. 1st Choice range of log cabins have various options for treatments.
