FREE SAME DAY INSTALLATION - THE BENEFITS: Our free in house installation service is not just convenient, it is also your assurance of a better quality summerhouse. This is because any building which includes free installation is invariably better made using quality components. Over time regular feedback from fitters ensures that design faults and weaknesses have been rectified. Same day installation is convenient for you and cost effective because it saves travelling costs. The fitters will deliver your summerhouse and then install it, all at the same time. Others send sub-contract fitters separately, often from far away and often a week or two after the delivery. Waiting for the fitter can be very frustrating. Sub-contract fitting is also much more expensive because of the travelling costs. The fitting service does not include base preparation. A flat and level base is required, which can be made using concrete, paving slabs, pressure treated timber or plastic. In many areas we offer a base laying service as an option. We also offer heavy duty plastic base kits in all areas.

QUALITY CONSTRUCTION: A feature of these quality summerhouses is the substantial 2" thick framing, which ensures a more robust and durable building. The floor joists are spaced close together for improved strength. The boarding is fully interlocked tongued and grooved throughout. The windows are glazed with glass and fitted with glazing beads. Finishing touches include double opening joinery doors fitted with good quality black antique handles and hinges.

SLATE EFFECT FIBREGLASS ROOF: This attractive and low maintenance fibreglass roof is a practical option for a summerhouse roof. It is stronger and more durable than other options. Because it is cast in one piece there are no leaking joins. Being fibreglass it is impervious to water and it normally requires no maintenance. The mould was created from a genuine slate roof and the fine detail provides an authentic finish.

OCTAGONAL BUILDING SIZES: For ease of reference these octagonal summerhouses are measured as a rectangle. The first dimension listed is the overall width from side to side and the second dimension is the depth from front to back. The external wall sizes are listed alongside the price. These sizes do not include the roof overhang. Many other suppliers quote the overall roof size which is much larger.
