Low maintenance exterior finishes for garden offices are growing in popularity. Often costing a little more initially than their timber counterparts, buyers are prepared to pay more upfront to save themselves work further down the line.
One of the most popular low maintenance finishes available is Cedral cladding. Cedral is a cement fibre board that is pigmented with colour during the manufacturing process. As a result, it doesn't require painting to maintain its colour. Unlike timber clad buildings, those finished with Cedral will maintain their new appearance in the long term, without needing maintenance.
Executive Garden Rooms have led the way with low maintenance finishes for their garden rooms. For many years they have offered their customers the option of Cedral cladding. You can see lots of examples of their Cedral clad garden offices in the articles we have written about them over the years.
Another low maintenance finish Executive Garden Rooms offer is render. Crisp white rendered walls can create a contemporary looking garden office, particularly when mixed with dark grey trims, as this two-person garden office project shows.
Mixing low maintenance finishes
Executive Garden Rooms have mixed Cedral and render to great effect on this garden office in Bristol. The 4m x 3.4m office building features white render on the front elevation. As we can see in this image, this contrasts sharply with the Anthracite Grey French door set.
The other elevations and the roof canopy detail have been clad in dark grey Cedral. The contrasting colours and the different textures work well together, we think.
By choosing the Cedral, render and uPVC doors, the owners, have invested in the future. They have created a building that will maintain its appearance in the long term, without them having to commit to a maintenance schedule - they can just sit back and enjoy their space.
Modern air-conditioned interior
Executive Garden Rooms offer a plastered and decorated interior, as standard on their buildings. This creates a light modern working environment.
As bespoke designers, Executive Garden Rooms offer a range of heating options. One of the most popular is an air-conditioning system which allows you to set the perfect working temperature all year round - keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.
You can see the air conditioning system in these images. One unit sits outside the building, while the smaller unit sits high up on one of the internal walls.
