Create extra living space and increase the value of your home with a garden room

Increase the value of your home and give yourself more living space with a bespoke garden room. Create a designated home office, gym, games room or cosy chill-out zone, which can all be done in many cases without the need for planning permission.

Project Focus – Cedral specified to create an array of bespoke garden rooms

While many companies offer ready-made garden pod solutions, going bespoke means you make the most of the available space and can custom build to your own specifications. Choosing the right materials is key to creating a garden room that looks good and will last.

Tristen Read is the Director of Read Garden Rooms Ltd and creates completely bespoke designs for his customers, built on site. Cedral cladding is his material of choice, first discovered by him when he built his own garden room several years ago. He was so impressed with it that, when he set up his own business, he knew he’d found the right material to work with.

Tristen says,

“We’re selling a premium product at the high end of the market and Cedral cladding fits the bill perfectly for that. There are other products in the market which are slightly cheaper than Cedral but with Cedral you get a thicker board, richer colours, a better paint finish and overall, a better-quality product.”

Tristen says,

Cedral’s great range of colours and finishes is a key selling point for customers, he reveals, with cladding coming in a choice of 21-factory applied colours, two woodstains and a choice of woodgrain or smooth finish. “People are always impressed when they see the range of options that they can have.”

And the other big selling point? Cedral fibre cement cladding is extremely low maintenance and designed to withstand the harshest weather conditions. It won’t rot, rust, warp or crack, is insect, bacteria and algae resistant and doesn’t need regular repainting. It has an excellent fire classification of A2-s1, d0 and a minimum life expectancy of 50 years.

Tristen says:

“This is something that I get a lot of feedback on. Cedral is a fantastic option for our customers who want their building to stay looking like new without the upkeep of painting wooden cladding every year.

“We want to deliver the best garden rooms possible, so for me it’s all about using top quality materials and suppliers – that’s why I’ve chosen Cedral.”
