One of our prospective customers eventually decided to have a local builder build a cedar clad garden office for them. I asked "Are you treating the cedar or leaving it to weather"?
We've put 2 coats of Osmo UV protection oil on it hoping to preserve the lovely colour but we can already see that the colour is losing richness where there's constant sun (not even been THAT constant this summer!!)
We plan to re-oil it annually and hope for the best - we don't want to become slaves to it!!
So many companies say that cedar is zero maintenance - it quite clearly isn't.
If you want a truly zero maintenance exterior that will maintain it's "just installed" look for 25 years then the QCB and the QC6/7 are the only design in the U.K which fits the bill...
The QCB "basic" garden office...
(best value garden office in the U.K...)
The upmarket QC6 garden office...
(top spec building regulations garden studio with loads of options and flexibility...)
This is how the cedar or pressure treated timber ends up if you don't paint or stain it regularly...
You can see more information on why timber needs looking after here.

My studio is splendid!
Completely exceeds my expectations!
I am so happy!
Your team: Steve, Liam and Matt worked like wildfire in sub zero weather with such good grace and took tremendous care over every last detail. I kept them well supplied with lots of hot tea to help keep them warm. They were all a joy to have here. I have never seen a crew work so well together. A finer group of good natured people I have never known. My studio is facing sideways because my garden is a bit too narrow. And it still looks fantastic!
Many thanks to you all,
(Lynda had a 12' x 8' QCB installed 19th January 2016)
We have had our studio for a fortnight now was and I can say that it has far exceeded our expectations - it's absolutely brilliant.
The team of guys doing the instal were fantastic - I don't think that I have ever seen a harder working bunch, they went the extra mile and clad an ugly looking wall below the studio with some of the excess materials and made a much better job of it than I would ever have done myself.
Should anyone else in the Bristol area want to view a completed studio we are more than happy for them to view ours if you wish to contact me.
Thank you very much for the help and guidance that you gave me during the development of this project, and thank Alex for visiting us himself to check that what we wanted was achievable.
From start to finish it has been a pleasure dealing with Booths.
