What Base Is Required For These Buildings
The best base is a solid concrete foundation. Concrete provides a stable and durable base that can support the weight of the structure and withstand changes in weather and ground conditions. It also helps to prevent moisture from seeping into the garden building, ensuring a longer lifespan. Additionally, a concrete base can be levelled accurately to ensure the room sits evenly, which is important for the structural integrity and aesthetics of the building. Overall, a concrete base is a good option for a garden room due to its strength, stability, and longevity. We can help with this so please ask about concrete or timber subframe options.
Why Should I Buy A Ready Insulated Garden Room or Office
Insulating a building involves installing insulation materials in the walls, floor, and roof to regulate temperature and create a comfortable environment. Common insulation materials include fibreglass, mineral wool, and rigid foam boards. It is important to seal any gaps or cracks to prevent heat loss and ensure the insulation is effective. Additionally, using double-glazed windows and insulated doors can further enhance energy efficiency. Proper insulation not only helps to maintain a consistent temperature but also minimises energy costs. 1st Choice's Platinum Fleet and Odiham buildings as well as all the Regent and Royal buildings are fully insulated as standard.
How Long Will My Garden Room Office Last
The longevity of a building depends on various factors such as the quality of materials used, the construction process, and the level of maintenance. Typically, a well-constructed and well-maintained garden building can last for several decades. Choosing durable materials and ensuring proper installation can contribute to the longevity of the structure. Additionally, regular inspections and timely repairs can help prolong the lifespan.
Why Not Consider A Multi-Purpose Garden Building With Additional Room?
All of our Royal, Regent, Platinum and Diamond Buildings are available with an extra room to suit you. Whether it's at the back, the side or accessed from the front, we can make a garden building combo
for you. Don't compromise on what you would like to meet your requirements. Contact us NOW
and chat through your needs or visit us and see examples for yourself. Free assembly on all garden buildings as standard.
When choosing an office building, you need to check the specifications to ensure it will have the strength to last. So always check out the thickness of the timber, whether it’s made from redwood or the cheap inferior whitewood, how thick the framing is etc. Does it have toughened glass for safety or imperfect horticultural glass, plastic or perspex? Are the doors and windows joinery made, meaning they will last a long time? All important questions.
On many of the offices for the garden available on the web, you will find that they will deliver them to your house and leave them for you to build. You can save a little money this way, but you will have to build it yourself. That’s OK if you are a good DIYer, but it will still be hard work. The best option is to take advantage of 1st Choice’s FREE assembly option on their buildings. They will do all the hard work – all you need to do is build a level base for it to go onto. And they can even arrange that for you as well if you wish. This way, you can be sure your new outdoor room will be built correctly, and all you need to do is enjoy it.
We have a large range of buildings for you to choose from and in several styles. However, we specialise in making buildings to suit your needs. Ensure you buy the building to suit you and your family with no compromises. Whether it needs to be taller, extra or fewer windows or the doors and windows moved, we can do that for you. Give us a call on (0800) 999 6995 or visit our showroom and discuss what you would like. We are happy to provide a quote to suit you with no pressure.
To make the most of your new building, it’s essential to be lined and insulated
to get the most use out of you all year round. Doing so will keep the building cooler in summer and warmer in winter. It’s possible to do this yourself if you feel confident. Some other companies treat this as a luxury. Don’t regret not doing so – you will be glad you did on those hot summer days or cold winter days. Just contact us for a great building for your home.
While our buildings are incredibly cost-effective, we refuse to compromise quality. Using top-grade materials, they offer maximum durability and are an excellent investment to make. Most importantly, you don’t have to worry about keeping warm because we offer excellent insulation with all of our products. You can leave the doors and windows open during the summer months, while winter working can still be comfortable due to your office’s ability to retain heat.

Before deciding on a new 12×12 outdoor building for your garden, you should always do your homework (sorry!) as it’s very easy to be taken in with a flashy website leaflet or colour brochure.

We have a large collection of office buildings that you are welcome to view. We will be delighted to show you the different buildings and answer any queries you may have.
