From reading through forums and speaking to customers, these questions keep coming up: which room will keep my papers dry, which one is warmest, which is cheapest for best quality and which garden room company did a good job for you. Here are a few pointers.
IS IT WARM ENOUGH?
We’re talking wall construction and insulation here. A good quality room which is as well insulated as a new build home will be constructed from a proper sips panel press, with a core of xps insulation. That will give you maximum internal volume.
That will ensure your room will retain heat well in winter. The flip side is that it retains a cool atmosphere in summer, assuming you’ll be fitting blinds on the windows.
WILL IT KEEP PAPERS DRY?
The sips press with xps framed building will keep papers dry. Condensation is related to ventilation and there needs to be another opening in the room, besides the door. Trickle vents are required for condensation control.
WHICH IS CHEAPEST FOR BEST QUALITY?
If you have a tight budget but want a high quality room, there may be another option. Especially if you have carpentry experience or know someone who does. Try asking if you can buy a flat-pack version of the design you like. That will cut out considerable labour costs.
WHICH COMPANY DID A GOOD JOB FOR YOU?
I have a vested interest here so I won’t comment beyond the obvious basic advice: look at different sites for testimonials and openly available content, like prices, specification, offers and experience.
