Cladding

Great, our experts say most of the cladding options used are among the best.

The interlocking log cladding(walls) used here is the best form of construction for log cabin walls out of the 2 types [2] we’ve identified on same-size log cabins, that you’ll also see getting used on 72% (639 of 893) of all log cabins analysed [3], as well as being used on 98% (87 of 89) of the top 10% of log cabins [4]. You’ll also find the interlocking log cladding showing up on 68% of 13′ x 9′ log cabins (99 in total) [5], and when taking the average Expert Score of those 13′ x 9′ log cabins (87), the 4.0m x 2.8m Corner Log Cabin With Glazed Double Doors 34mm Wall Thickness Includes Free Shingles is the same with an Expert Score of 87.

The walls are 34mm thick and we rate this the best thickness out of the 5 found on same-size log cabins [6]. It is used on 9% of all log cabins [7] and is also used across 8% of the top 10% of log cabins [8] we analysed. While you’ll find that the Expert Score of this log cabin is 3 points lower than the average for 13′ x 9’s that use 34mm thick cladding (87 vs the average of 90) [9], you can be sure it’s not due to the cladding thickness as this one of the highest scoring thicknesses available on 13′ x 9′ log cabins. 23% of 13′ x 9′ log cabins (33 in total) use 34mm thick walls.

Roofing

Mineral felt is used as the roof covering, and out of 3 types identified on same-size log cabins [10], is said to be one of the best roof covering materials. It comes fitted on 57% of log cabins and used on 58% of the top 10% of 13′ x 9′ log cabins. 62% of 13′ x 9′ log cabins (90 in total) make use of a mineral felt material as a roof covering, and when taking the average Expert Score of those 13′ x 9′ log cabins (86), the 4.0m x 2.8m Corner Log Cabin With Glazed Double Doors 34mm Wall Thickness Includes Free Shingles is just above the average with an Expert Score of 87.

Flooring

Great, our experts say most of the flooring options used are among the best.

The manufactures of this log cabin chose tongue & groove for the floor construction, we rate this the best form of floor construction and is the only type found on this size of log cabin [11]. This type of floor construction is used on 74% of all log cabins we analysed, and 94% of the top 10% of those log cabins. 79% of 13′ x 9′ log cabins (116 in total) use tongue & groove construction for the floor.

A 19mm thick floor boarding is used here, this is the best floor board thickness according to our experts out of 8 found on same-size log cabins [12]. It’s found on 39% of all log cabins and used on 88% of the top 10% of log cabins. 38% of 13′ x 9′ log cabins (56 in total) use 19mm thick floor boarding, and when taking the average Expert Score of those 13′ x 9′ log cabins (85), the 4.0m x 2.8m Corner Log Cabin With Glazed Double Doors 34mm Wall Thickness Includes Free Shingles is just above the average with an Expert Score of 87.

Even though the Expert Score of this log cabin is 3 points lower than that of the average for double glazed glazed 13′ x 9’s (87 vs the average of 90), you can be sure it’s not due to the material of the windows because this one of the highest scoring available on 13′ x 9′ log cabins. 28% of 13′ x 9′ log cabins with windows (37 in total) use double glazed windows.

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 log cabins that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 log cabins that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 3 other options that will fill those needs.

1. Pressure Treated: Considered the most durable wood treatment, this is where the wood undergoes a process called tanalisation. This is where the timber is submerged in specialist wood preservatives (such as Tanalith E, this is actually the origin of the word ‘tanalisation’), this is a unique combination of copper and organic biocide ingredients (it is the copper that gives the finished wood the slightly green colour). The wood then goes into a high pressure vacuum tank (the Wood Protection Association has a good article/video on this) to draw out excess moisture and air and force in the preservatives.

This deep penetration of the exterior wood protects it from the elements and all forms of insect attack. Wood treated this way can last many years without being re-treated. The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) says “ penetration to either 6 mm (15 years) or 12mm (for 30 years) has to be achieved in any exposed surface in sawn material.”

It is also worth noting that if cross cutting, notching or boring treated timber during or after installation, ALWAYS apply an end grain solvent-based (or oil-based) wood preservative treatment to the freshly exposed areas, this will maintain the integrity of the protection. NEVER put cut ends in the ground, even if end grain coated.
