Garden Room Rye East Sussex
Take a look at some images from this recent Garden Room installation for our client in Rye, this type of job is rewarding for the team as we get to put our joinery skills to work.
The number one priority for us when creating this garden room was the fact we wanted the new structure to blend seamlessly with the existing building, in this case, it was imperative to use the correct wood and match the windows as closely as possible.
As with all installations of this type the use of toughened glass is a necessity as without toughened panes a garden room extension or conservatory will not conform to building regulations.
Upon surveying the property and gaining agreement with our customer we settled on the hardwood Sapele which is a member of the Mahogany family predominantly found in West Africa, Sapele is comparable to English Oak in terms of strength.
The wood itself is weather resistant and highly resistant to rot, another property of the wood is its reaction to paint when painted Sapele remains stable and the paint is absorbed incredibly well this is due to the grain of the wood which is very fine thus lending itself to painted or varnished finishes.
In this instance, the team applied a primer to the wood, this base coat allows our customer to apply the final painted finish.
Casement Style Windows
The windows are of a casement style finished with Georgian bars for continuity and to blend the building seamlessly the same Georgian bar style is applied to the doors.
