Radiata Garden Rooms

Your Radiata Garden Room is our lowest-maintenance building yet. Its innovative Radiata Thermowood cladding has been treated to provide excellent protection from moisture, rot and insect damage.

Your 4-layer, fully-insulated walls, roof and floor are designed to keep moisture out of your building, eliminating the need for maintenance tasks such as painting and moisture prevention.

To maximise the life, health and usage of your garden room, follow these steps...

Painting Your Garden Room

Your Radiata Garden Room comes with a coat of Osmo oil which protects it during transit and installation. This provides a natural finish with a beautiful sheen.

Your cladding is naturally protected from moisture, so it isn’t necessary to recoat your building unless you want to retain this finish. Untreated, the timber will weather to a silvery grey colour. Osmo oil will preserve the original colour of your building.

Can I paint my Radiata Garden Room a solid colour?

Bear in mind that once your Garden Room is painted, the only way to recover the original natural colour is to sand or strip the entire building.

But if you do want to change the appearance of the building, we recommend Sadolin Classic. This oil-based paint is available in 13 standard and 50 tinted shades.

Sadolin is only available from registered stockists. Our closest supplier is Bannerman’s Colour Studio in either Perth or Dundee. 

You can also buy Sadolin online at Decorating Warehouse. A full list of retail stockists is available here.

Should I paint the inside of my RADIATA Garden Room?

You can leave the redwood lining unpainted or paint it according to your preference.

The best practice for painting interior woodwork is to apply an antifungal base coat before applying your main colour. Roxil, Barretine, Sikagard or Dulux Weathershield are all appropriate antifungal treatments.

Once you apply this coat according to the product instructions, the weatherboard can be coated with wax, oil or emulsion paint.

Flooring

If you have opted for laminate flooring in your Garden Room, clean this with a disposable floor wipe mop rather than a wet mop. This prevents excess moisture from building up inside your garden room.

If you have chosen alternative flooring, apply this principle by using a cleaning method that avoids excess moisture.

To protect the timber inside your Garden Room, ventilate the building well after any liquid spills.

Roofs & Guttering

Depending on the model, your Garden Room comes with steel box profile or Isola shingle roofing.

Steel box profile roofing has a 20-year manufacturer’s guarantee and a lifespan of at least 30 years.

Isola Shingles have a 30-year manufacturer’s guarantee and a lifespan of at least 40 years.

Neither roofing material has any maintenance requirements.

If you have opted for guttering on your Garden Room, make sure to check this twice yearly and clean out any leaves or blockages. More regular checks may be necessary if there are overhanging trees above the building.

Doors & Windows

Your Radiata Garden Room has magnetic door stops that allow you to fix the doors open. Avoid using these in strong winds, as this can damage the doors.

Over the years you may find small changes in your Garden Room’s doors and windows. These are caused by natural timber frame movement which can occur over time.

If your doors or windows have moved so much that you can’t close or open them, there is a straightforward carpentry method to rectify them.

We offer a service to do this at our hourly rate. Alternatively, any reputable joiner will be able to carry out the work.
