If you like cedar cladding but are limited by budget, then adding a combination of cladding styles to your garden room could be the solution for you. In the case of this garden office in West Sussex, our customer has chosen a combination of western red cedar and anthracite grey fibre cement cladding.
There are several benefits to having a combination of cladding styles on your garden office. The first can be to reduce the amount of maintenance your structure may need in the long-run. Cedar needs to be sanded and protected with a UV oil every year or so in order for it to keep its tones of orange and red. This can be a huge task on an entire building, but time is saved when just the front elevation is in cedar. The fibre cement sides are maintenance-free. The second benefit is the saving you can make! It is cost-effective to have your favourite cladding to the front of the structure, with a cheaper alternative on the side and rear walls.
The result is a beautiful space that is graced with views across the Sussex countryside. We had the following kind words from our client: We're so delighted with EVERYTHING! The whole project took a little over 3 weeks start to finish and the service was exceptional. Our garden room looks even better than the pictures and every member of the team was warm, friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more and would highly recommend them! - Mrs Cassam, West Sussex
