SCANDINAVIAN REDWOOD OR WHITEWOOD: The most widely used timber in the UK for years, Scandinavian Redwood and Whitewood grow in the well managed forests of Scandinavia and the coldest parts of Northern Europe. The cold climate ensures slow growth. The growth rings are much closer together than faster growing trees from warmer climates. As a result the timber is heavy and durable with a close grain pattern. The wood is seasoned and kiln dried to achieve the correct moisture content before it is machined. Redwood and Whitewood are so similar in appearance and performance that it is difficult to tell the difference. Both are classified as slightly durable and treatment is required for outside use. The forests of Scandinavia and Northern Europe have been responsibly managed on a sustainable basis for centuries so Scandinavian Redwood or Whitewood is an enviromentally friendly choice.
PRESSURE TREATED TIMBER: Pressure treatment is a lifetime preservative treatment. The preservative is forced deep into the timber under pressure in a vacuum and penetrates below the surface. All other treatments apply a coat of stain to the surface of the timber only. With pressure impregnated timber, the chemicals are permanently bonded to the cell structure of the wood at a molecular level. Tanalith E is a widely used water based version so pressure treated wood is often described as tanalised. Pressure treated wood is almost colourless except for a slight green tint caused by the copper content in the preservative. No further preservative treatment is ever needed. However, if you want a coloured finish you can paint over pressure treated or tanalised wood with normal wood preservative in any colour.
TIMBER SLATTED ROOF: This attractive and durable timber roof is ideal for a garden gazebo. It requires little or no maintenance, it provides shade and it can withstand a light shower or even a heavy downpour for a short while. The roof features prefabricated panels which are fixed into substantial hip rafters. Cover battens to each side of the panels reduce rainwater penetration at the edges. The roof angle and the interlocking tongued and grooved roof boards ensure that most rainwater drains away. In prolonged rain some moisture may seep in and drips may occur. Sealing with silicone or mastic will further improve the waterproofing, for example at the edges of the roof panels. The timber is pressure treated so it will last well even if it is never treated from new.
RESTRICTED ACCESS: This gazebo is easy to deliver if access is restricted - all sections are designed to pass through a normal single door.

TIMBER FLOOR WITH DECKING TILES: These substantial timber floors feature decking tiles with a reeded surface finish. Prefabricated tiles form a strong floor which is easy to install. The tiles are simply butted up to each other and normally laid at 90 degrees to the neighbouring tile. Unlike slabs or concrete these deck tiles are lightweight and fully relocatable. A small gap between each board ensures that rainwater can drain away easily and allows for the expansion and contraction of the timber in varying weather conditions. The floor is completely independent from the gazebo. It fits inside the timber posts so it can be fitted after the gazebo structure has been assembled. The floor requires a flat and level sub-base. Paving slabs or concrete are best. Well compacted hardcore or soil can also be used with a 1-2" thick layer of pea shingle.
Our pressure treated decking tiles are 40mm thick with narrow boards and narrow gaps, providing a distinctive and attractive appearance. All timber is pressure treated to match the gazebo which ensures a longer lifespan. The tiles are 500x500mm (1'8"x1'8") and 40mm thick overall with 20mm thick boards, hand made with 15 boards 30mm wide, 14 gaps 4mm wide and 3 battens at 250mm (10") centres.
HEAVY DUTY TIMBER FLOOR WITH DECKING TILES: These substantial timber floors feature decking tiles with a reeded surface finish. Prefabricated tiles form a strong floor which is easy to install.

UNTEARABLE ROOF FELT: This untearable mineral coated bitumen roofing felt is more durable than standard roofing felt. Standard felt is paper backed or fibreglass backed, both of which are very easy to tear or puncture. This weakness makes standard felt vulnerable to wind damage. Although our untearable roofing felt looks and feels the same it includes a concealed plastic membrane which makes it far stronger. The most common cause of damage to a standard felt roof is a gust of wind getting under the felt and tearing it. Once the felt is torn it is quickly ruined. Standard felt can be torn very easily but our untearable felt cannot be torn by hand without a cutting edge. Even aggressive attempts to tear the felt by hand will only wrinkle the edges as the hidden membrane is stretched.
DECORATIVE FELT TILES: Mineral coated bitumen felt tiles are an attractive and durable roofing material which is far more hardwearing than standard roofing felt. Traditionally used for small buildings only in the UK, felt tiles are used much more in Scandinavia and North America where they are used widely in general housebuilding. The sophisticated design features a strip of almost dry bitumen adhesive. Over time each tile sticks to the tile below for improved waterproofing and windproofing. All fixings are covered by the next row of felt tiles, partly to ensure a neat appearance with concealed fixings but mainly to protect the fixing holes from any possible moisture. Mineral felt tiles are made using asphalt with a bitumen binder and an external covering of durable and attractive natural stone chips. Mineral felt tiles are often described as felt shingles because the design resembles traditional cedar shingles.
CEDAR ROOF SHINGLES: Attractive and durable, cedar shingles make the ideal roof for high specification gazebos. These genuine cedar roof shingles are traditionally made from Western Red Cedar. The individual cedar shingles are laid over a felted solid pine inner roof. Each individual cedar tile is a known as a shingle. Cedar shingles have long been a popular roofing material for domestic and public buildings in large parts of North America where cedar shingles have a reputation for warmth and longevity. Cedar has an unrivalled reputation for durability and cedar shingles often last for many decades. We use only the highest grade of shingles which are 100% heartwood, 100% free from defects and 100% edge grain. Heartwood edge grain is the densest possible cut which ensures maximum durability. All fixings are covered by the next row of felt tiles, partly to ensure a neat appearance with concealed fixings but mainly to protect the fixing holes from any possible moisture.
GALVANIZED STEEL FOUNDATION BRACKETS: It is important to fix your gazebo down firmly, either into the ground or into a concrete or timber base. A choice of post fixing brackets are available:
Our standard brackets are galvanized steel right angle brackets which can be fixed into concrete, paving or timber decking but are unsuitable for fixing into the ground. The standard brackets are only suitable at sheltered sites for domestic use.
Our heavy duty brackets are fully welded steel construction and galvanized for durability. The heavy duty brackets are recommended for exposed sites and commercial applications where heavy use is anticipated. A choice of heavy duty brackets are available:
Our heavy duty bolt down brackets are suitable for fixing into concrete, paving or timber decking but are unsuitable for fixing into the ground. The brackets feature pre-drilled holes for the fixings. The fixings are not supplied as different fixings are required for different surfaces.
Our heavy duty drive in spikes are designed for securing the posts into the ground but are unsuitable for fixing into concrete or timber. The brackets are driven into the ground using a sledgehammer or a lump hammer. We recommend using an offcut of wood to protect the metal surfaces as you drive in the spikes.
Our heavy duty concrete in stirrups are designed for securing the posts into the ground. First a hole is excavated in the ground, then the hole is filled with concrete and then the brackets are set into the concrete. The posts are fixed into the exposed part of the stirrup. It is also possible to delay pouring the concrete until after the gazebo has been substantially assembled, which allows for final adjustment of the stirrups to ensure a more precise fit. The concrete in stirrups are probably the most time consuming post supports to use but also the strongest.
SIDE SCREENS: These versatile side screens are an attractive privacy screen which also provides shelter from draughts and sunlight, ensuring that your gazebo is more comfortable for longer into the evening. You can fit the side screens to one or two sides only or all round to all sides. The curtains are approximately 6'5" high (1950mm) with factory fitted curtain hooks. There are no curtain rails included. Each pack includes screw in eyes to suit the curtain hooks. Installation is very simple with no tools required. The eyes are screwed in by hand into the eaves timbers of your gazebo at regular intervals, normally on the inside. The screens are opened and closed manually within seconds. You just unhook the curtains and hook them up again in a different position. These outdoor curtains are a universal set available with different products and not customized to suit any specific product. Use mild soapy water and a soft sponge to clean the fabric. Abrasive cloths or cleaning fluids may damage the surfaces. The curtains should not be permanently closed and should be returned to the fully open position after each use. The curtains should not be closed in windy weather and should be removed for winter storage.
WPC COMPOSITE DECKING KITS: This superb quality WPC wood plastic composite decking closely resembles real wood, with the same look and feel. However, it is virtually maintenance free and it will never rot. At a glance it is difficult to tell the difference between this composite material and real timber decking with a stained finish. Furthermore, the similarities are not skin deep like a thin veneer. The realistic finish has a fibrous surface which looks similar to the grain of real wood. This synthetic composite is also heavier and stronger than real wood. The strength, durability and lack of maintenance make this superb decking a popular choice with pensioners and discerning commercial buyers such as care homes. Occasional cleaning with soapy water normally restores the original appearance. If any dirt or stains become ingrained after prolonged neglect even the most stubborn marks can be cleaned with a pressure washer.
Our WPC composite decking is a revolutionary material which provides all the benefits of real wood without the maintenance. It can be left outside uncovered all year round. Unlike real wood this synthetic wood is a weatherproof material with no knots, splinters, machining marks or other imperfections. It will never develop splits or shakes and no sap will ever ooze out of it. Our wood plastic composite is an equal mixture of real wood and recycled plastic. Even the wood is a mixture of sawdust and unusable offcuts, so it is the ultimate environmentally friendly alternative to wood. The colour pigments are mixed in before the powdered composite is moulded into shape, so the colour runs all the way through the finished product. The boards are completely impervious to water. The boards can be sawn, drilled and screwed, just like real wood. You can fix it with standard woodscrews. Being heavier and denser than real wood, screw fixings are actually stronger in composite boards.
MICROPOROUS PRESERVATIVE - DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR: Our quality microporous preservatives are impervious to water but not to water vapour. This allows the wood to breathe. You can order up to 3 separate colours if required. At least two coats are normally required with a further coat at periodic intervals.
Our 3 star preservative is practical and affordable with a choice of 4 colours. It covers around 10 square metres per litre and normally lasts 1-2 years before a further coat is required.
Our 4 star preservative is a high quality preservative which covers around 9 square metres per litre and normally lasts 2-5 years before a further coat is required. It is available with a choice of 12 colours.
Our 5 star preservative is a deluxe high build preservative which can be used to achieve a stunning finish. Each extra coat increases the colour and sheen. It covers around 8 square metres per litre and normally lasts 2-5 years before a further coat is required. It is available with a choice of 12 colours.
Based on average coverage five litres of our 4 star preservative is enough for two coats on an 8'x10' shed or an 8'x8' log cabin. Ten litres is enough for three coats on a 10'x16' shed or a 12'x10' log cabin. Coverage varies according to the smoothness of the surface and the porosity of the timber. We recommend that you order more than you need to be sure that you have easily enough. All of these preservatives are safe for use with children and pets. These microporous preservatives are only available when you purchase a Summer garden building or if you purchased a Summer building in the past. Prices include free mainland delivery to England, Wales and southern Scotland. Colours are only as accurate as reproductive techniques allow.
WATERPROOF COLOUR SEAL - DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR: This advanced water-based microprous timber treatment uses the latest high-tech nanotechnology to create a long-lasting waterproof wood coating that is environmentally friendly. It is suitable for use on all softwood and hardwood products and is especially recommended for use on pressure treated timber, including sheds, summerhouses, gazebos, fencing and garden furniture. This timber treatment will colour, protect and enhance your exterior wood. It contains a mould inhibitor to protect the coating and can be used on all outside and inside timber. It gives a traditional matt wood stain finish in a range of natural colours. It can easily be applied by sprayer, brush or roller. It is recommended that the second coat is applied as soon as the first coat is touch dry. We advise for ultimate performance the timber has a wood preservative pre-treatment. For the first treatment, two coats are recommended and will give a traditional wood stain finish that is long lasting. A further coat is recommended every 2-5 years. One litre covers approximately 10-12 square metres. Coverage varies according to the smoothness of the surface and the porosity of the timber. On average five litres covers a 12x8 shed with two coats and ten litres covers a 10x20 with three coats. It is recommended that 2 coats be applied. We recommend that you order more than you need to be sure that you have easily enough. The appearance of colours and shades may vary between different screens or devices. Prices include free mainland delivery to England, Wales and southern Scotland.
WATERPROOF CLEAR SEAL - DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR: Our hardwearing clear seal is ideal as a clear varnish for bare timber or as a waterproof top coat for painted wood and pressure treated timber. It is also ideal as a waterproof floor varnish, especially the polyurethane clear seal. The smooth and shiny finished surface is waterproof and easy to clean. Available in a choice of acrylic or polyurethane, these colourless water based coatings are almost odourless and recommended for smooth planed timber only. One coat is normally required as a sealing top coat on painted or treated timber. A minimum of two coats are normally required on untreated wood. Up to three coats may be required for floors. An unsealed timber floor quickly shows muddy boot marks and other dirt. For best results a floor should be treated at the earliest opportunity while the timber is new and clean. On average five litres of our 5 star clear seal is enough for three coats on a 12'x12' floor, two coats on the walls of an 8'x8' log cabin or one coat on the walls of a 12'x16' log cabin. We recommend that you order more than you need to be sure that you have easily enough. The price includes free mainland delivery to England, Wales and southern Scotland.

Just thought you would be interested in your gazebo constructed over remaining trunk of very large blue cedar tree which had sadly died last year. We wanted a memento of a much missed feature.
Very pleased and impressed with your product and service and instructions.
