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 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.

I appreciate that the installation of my studio was probably more challenging than the norm due to the considerable elevated position at the very top of my garden and the digging out of substantial tree roots. That said, the fitters simply 'got on' with the job in hand and just made a joke of the challenges without complaining at all (at least whilst I was in ear shot!). Please pass on my thanks to all the team, Kind regards,
Having spent two years researching the Garden outbuilding market, I was struck by how many choices there were but unfortunately all in wood and in my opinion rather expensive.
I came across Booth Studios and was in discussion with them for over 9 months before the final install date. I would recommend Booth Studios to anybody. From the minute you speak to Iain and Alex, all the way through to installation. There is nothing that is too much trouble for this company. Everyone wants to do the best for the customer (novel I know). Having had the studio for over 3 months, we are so happy and all of our friends and family are amazed at the quality and comfort of the studio with the zero maintenance. We recently showed a potential customer around and they could not believe the quality of the product and every customers willingness to share the great experience that is Booth Studios. Don’t look at any other company than Booths, they are incredible and the product is 1st class.
