✅ 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.

The Summer House Floor Is Very Important
As the summerhouse floor is very important to the life of your new building you need to be very careful in your choice of manufacturers. Besides the types of materials used, mainly of which are NOT suitable for outdoor use you need to consider various other things to ensure your new building will stand the test of time.
An important question to ask is – how thick is the floor. The very minimum size you should accept is 16mm (12mm finished thickness). This size will create a strong floor if made from proper timber, however, beware of summer building companies offering floors only 10mm thick (this is 3/8 ‘s of an inch) which is smaller than a standard pencil. Just take a pencil and see how easy it breaks. This will prove to you how foolhardy it is to use boards this thin.
The floor boards themselves sit onto floor joists and again you need to check the number of floor joists and the size of the floor timbers used. Some floor joists are only 28 x 28mm (1″ x 1″) which is crazy and far too small. Ideally aim for 47 x 47mm (2″ x 2″) floor joists which are very solid and long lasting. Also ensure that the spacing on the summer house floor is no more than about 16″. Some cheap ones have batons every 2ft so the floor will bow, or break, under your weight. You will find that the gaps in between the floor joists will allow air to circulate under the floor and help to keep it dry.
To ensure the very best floor they should be delivered fully assembled but may come in 2 or 3 sections (or more if the summerhouse is very large). If you have to build the floor yourself, which many of the cheap manufacturers make you do, then this is another area where you may run into problems.
Also ensure that the floor on your new summerhouse is covered under the factory guarantee. You will find that the decent companies which use proper timber have no problem with this. The cheap shed makers who use chipboard, OSB, wafer or Sterling board often will not cover the floor as they know when water gets into these boards they will fail. ALWAYS double check and always be wary if they only talk about sheet materials.
You do need to ensure that what ever type of floor you have that you have a solid base for the floor to sit onto. Ideally this should be concrete, paving slabs, timber decking or a purpose built timber sub frame which is a superb foundation for your new summer building. I’m often asked what size to make the concrete base and I always say it should be the same size as the external size of your new shed.
Also, ideally, you should make the top of the base ‘proud’ of the ground by 1 – 2 inches. If you do this then no water will run under it and you will never get any rotting from damp. I’m always amazed when so called experts say to make the concrete base larger than the building. All this will do is to allow rain water to fall onto the protruding concrete and run underneath making the floor wet. This will reduce the life of the floor and, the fact remains, that most sheds and summerhouses fail because of the floor rotting.
