While many garden workshops are available, a heavy-duty building is ideal for people who store a lot of equipment or want a safe workplace. Other garden buildings might be more susceptible to rot and damage from severe weather, but our workshops will retain their durability for longer.
If you’re looking for a building that will serve as a wise investment, our workshops are the best choice.
In general, manufacturers use two types of timber; whitewood and redwood. While both are softwoods, red is much more durable than whitewood.
Whitewood might seem like a good idea if you’re looking for a standard timber workshop, but there are plenty of reasons to avoid it.
Redwood is decay resistant, can handle severe weather without warping and becoming a victim to rot, and can offer a high degree of fire resistance.
While whitewood isn’t necessarily a substandard material, it can cause issues if you live in a location with a lot of rain and severe winds; you’ll need to replace the building sooner than redwood timber.
The framing of your building matters because it defines whether the rest of the structure will hold up against harsh conditions. While many manufacturers offer buildings with a framing size of 1×1 inches, you should opt for a 2×2 inch frame at least.
At 1st Choice Leisure, we use high-quality materials to build sturdy frames that can withstand all kinds of weather. The thick framing also helps to insulate the space, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Insulation is a must if you’re planning on using your garden workshop year-round. Not only will it help to keep the space warm in winter, but it will also help to keep it cool in summer.
We use Kingspan quality insulating materials because they keep the building warm throughout winter and cool during the summer. Every new garden building should have adequate insulation because it will enhance its functionality all year, making these buildings a wise investment.
Toughened or tempered glass is a type of safety glass made by heating and then cooling the glass to change its internal structure. Doing this makes the glass stronger and more resistant to breakage, a significant bonus for wooden workshops.
When it breaks (which is rare), toughened glass breaks into small, safe pieces rather than large shards. While the glass is popular for car windows and windshields, it’s also a popular option for timber workshops because it facilitates year-round use.
At 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, we specialise in creating high-quality timber workshops that enhance your outdoor space while offering a long-lasting solution for your work or hobby needs.
