The Deluxe 10 x 7 Summerhouse .

Base material: wood

Our experts say this has 2 stand out features. A stand out feature is something found on over 70% of the top 10% of products in a particular category or is an exceptionally good feature as rated by our panel of experts.

1. The 12mm thick cladding used is as thick as the walls found on 92% of the top 10% of summer houses.

2. The tongue & groove cladding used on this summer house is one the best available for summer houses rated by our experts.

Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this summer house fairs across the market.

Cladding

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

The tongue & groove cladding(walls) used here is the best form of construction for summer house walls out of the 3 types [1] we’ve identified on same-size summer houses, that you’ll also see getting used on 38% (278 of 741) of all summer houses analysed [2], as well as being used on 51% (38 of 74) of the top 10% of summer houses [3]. Even though the Expert Score of this particular summer house is 15 points below that of the average tongue & groove clad 10′ x 7’s (they have an average Expert Score of 85), with it being on 51% of the top 10%, its use here is a reassuring sign of a high quality cladding. You’ll also find the tongue & groove cladding showing up on 38% of 10′ x 7′ summer houses (54 in total) [4].

The walls are 12mm thick and we rate this an about average thickness out of the 5 found on same-size summer houses [5]. It is used on 78% of all summer houses [6] and is also used across 92% of the top 10% of summer houses [7] we analysed. Even though the Expert Score of this particular summer house is 14 points below the average 12mm clad 10′ x 7’s score of 84, the fact that 92% of the top 10% use a cladding this thick is reassuring as a sign of quality. 79% of 10′ x 7′ summer houses (111 in total) use 12mm thick walls [8].

High Wind Area – If you live in a particularly exposed or high wind area then having a summer house with a thicker cladding and higher than average frame thickness can be preferable. We found at least 3 summer houses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

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 summer houses 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 summer houses 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. Untreated: Any wooden structure that is left untreated will have its lifespan dramatically shortened. This is especially the case with Douglas fir or European softwoods such as Whitewood (spruce) or Redwood (Pine), most garden buildings sold in the UK are made from such wood.

The Wood Protection Association says that “the risk of attack increases significantly if the moisture content of wood, for any reason, rises above 20%” they also talk about how more lower durability cuts of wood (known as sapwood) are getting used to build with than in years gone by. They also say that “sapwood on the other hand is a source of food for many species of fungi and insects and is always vulnerable to attack.” This risk is particularly prevalent with European softwoods.

The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) and BS EN 350:2016 (this advises on methods for determining and classifying the durability of wood and wood-based materials against biological wood-destroying agents) says the natural durability class of such European softwoods is between 3 and 5. With class 3 listed as moderately durable, class 4 listed as slightly durable and class 5 listed as not durable. All three classes have a service life of less than 15 years in a frequently wet environment (such as a UK garden). Yet the application of a preservative treatment or modification of lower durability species is designed according to BS8605 part1 (this is the British standards specifications for external timber cladding) to extend service life to 15/30 years or more.

Having a wooden garden structure supplied as untreated is relatively rare. The vast majority of wooden buildings are supplied with some form of basic treatment, usually a short term water based dip treatment. If you buy an untreated wooden building/structure then we strongly advise that you treat it annually with a solvent-based wood treatment. For full penetration it requires 2-3 coats. It is also recommended that you treat the inside of the structure as well.

If you are wanting something that will require much less maintenance throughout the products life cycle then we would strongly suggest looking at something that is pressure treated also known as tanalised timber.

By correctly treating timber you can take a sub 15 year service life for a not very durable European softwood and extend its service life to 15/30 years or more according to the Timber Decking and Cladding Association
