ALTON SUMMERHOUSES

Western Red Cedar Cladding
All the cladding, windows, doors and external trims are made from 100% Western Red Cedar from Canada. This is traditional timber used for garden buildings and greenhouses because it is very stable and extremely resistant to rot. The colour of cedar varies naturally within the same tree between almost white through pinky orange colours to a rich brown colour.

Factory Treatment
Alton summerhouses are treated with a clear oil based protector in their workshops, however the treatment is completely clear so that it does not ruin the natural appearance of the wood. You can of course treat your summerhouses if you want it to be a particular colour, but if you leave it to naturally mature, it will go an attractive silvery-grey colour. You can re-treat with clear any time to increase the lifespan, but even if you do not treat it again your cedar should last for many years provided you keep it clean. For the longest possible life, we recommend that you apply an oil based treatment every 3 years and clean it every year.

Georgian Windows and Doors
Made in Alton's own workshop by craftsmen from Western red cedar and glazed with toughened safety glass. Also internally glazed which gives a more attractive appearance from the outside.

Top Quality Windows and Doors
All in all satin-chrome finish, the window catches, door hinges, bolts and door hooks are of a noticeably higher quality that the industry standard.

Roof Choices
As standard every Alton summerhouse has a red felt roof. This will require replacing every few years if it is exposed to the weather. The optional Cedar slatted roof not only makes your summerhouse more attractive, it also covers the roofing felt and cedar trims at the bottom of the roof. This means your felt will not be exposed to the elements and it will last much longer. This option is worth the additional expense, as it will prove value for money in the long run.

Locking Door
Whether single or double your summerhouse door will be fitted with a 3 lever mortice lock.

Heavy Duty Tanalised Flooring
19mm floorboards which give a solid floor and as both the joists underneath and the floorboards themselves are tanalised pressure treated, they are resistant to rot.
