Put simply, our doors and windows are what separate us from the competition.

Windows

Most companies offer costly upgrades for better Windows in their Log Cabins/Cabins. We offer high quality, hand made units, with quality Argon filled Glass Panes. CE approved. Our Windows are very hard wearing, and are hand made by skilled joiners.

Our 44mm, double 44mm and 70mm cabins all come with our Premium Double Glazed tilt and turn windows, and have the addition of double mastic and high quality galvanised black rain guards that will never rot or rust. They are ’tilt and turn’ so they open inwards from the side, or tilt back on themselves to open from the top. They also have a five point locking mechanism. The units are 24mm thick, with 4mm glass and 16mm gap.

Georgian Bars

On top of this, they also come with wooden Georgian bars that can be fitted to the inside of the window to give the appearance of Georgian windows.  They are packed with windows but are not attached, so you can chose whether or not to add them.

For our 34mm cabins we offer our standard double glazed units, as shown here

Treating your windows and doors

 

There are two things you need to do with your cabin.  You MUST use a preservative first, and then use a stain or wood colour.

We would recommend using either Sadolin or Sikkens, as they are high quality, and have a wide selection to chose from.

Generally speaking, the more you pay, the better the product, but do shop around.

Whatever you use, make sure:

1. It is a preservative, and not just a paint
2. It must have at least a small amount of pigment to provide sun protection.
3. It must be a waterproofer (many preservatives do not contain any waterproofing)

Whatever you do, don’t just use regular paint on your cabin. It will not allow the wood to breathe, and it doesn’t stretch, so it will soon ruin your wood.
