Our materials


 

When you invest in a Breeze House, it’s important to know exactly where your money is going. We appreciate that this is a big decision in terms of investment into your home and garden, which is why we pride ourselves on offering only premium garden buildings with superb accessories and a guarantee that will stand the test of time. So just sit back, grab a cuppa and start planning your lazy, long summer evenings in your gorgeous new Breeze House, as we’ve got it covered.

Of course, we have a wealth of experience and skill in our craftsmanship when building your Breeze House, and we have a great understanding of the workings of a great garden building to ensure it’s functional AND beautiful, but it all starts with the materials

Scandinavian Redwood: Scandinavian Redwood, with high tensile strength and durability, is ideal for all types of outdoor construction, both commercial and domestic. It is our choice for Breeze House construction and, when treated, can last for more than 30 years. All of our Breeze Houses are handcrafted from extremely tough and robust Scandinavian Redwood, perfect for construction. The selected timbers are highly regarded for their long-lasting properties. They withstand environmental elements, yet retain symmetry and aesthetic purpose and style. And, they age extremely well – we believe they will simply look better than any other construction material in 15, 20 or even 30 years time. Plus, all of our building timbers are guaranteed for 30 years against rot and decay.

Canadian Forest Cedar: Canadian Forest Cedar has many natural traits which make it resistant to rot and decay. Cedar fibres contain oils that are natural preservatives. Cedar oils are also a mild pesticide, which act as a deterrent to insects that might cause damage. These traits make cedar ideal for outdoor cladding. Its low rate of heat absorption is also particularly useful, as it remains cool to the touch even on hot days. The cedar is tapered and cut to size by our skilled craftsmen, providing a seamless finish on the circular roofs. The shingles are mounted onto vertical laths allowing the cedar to breathe; they are then attached to a membrane board for further insulation and protection. There is an option of standard marine ply membrane or an external weatherboard with a specialist Hi-Lite Teknos paint finish, highlighting the ceiling, giving a more contemporary look.

Traditional Thatch Roofing: Cape reed is a solid reed and has a life expectancy of 6-10 years. This type of thatch will age and change colour over time – aged reed has a natural grey-like appearance. The traditional South African thatch is pre-fabricated into tiles that can be easily clipped on to a metal frame or rope. Breeze House offer a re-thatching service for your building.

Combination Thatch Roofing: Our combination thatch tile consists of a layer of extruded polyolefin imitation thatch with natural cape reed underneath. The artificial layer of thatch protects the natural reed from the elements, reducing colour changes and deterioration, giving the tile a longer life expectancy that our traditional thatch option.

Fabrics: Our quality collection of cushions boasts high performance fabric, which provides comfort and luxury as well as practicality. The materials we use do not support microbial or fungal growth, and with stain-resistant and waterproofing characteristics they are of marine quality, perfect for outdoor living. The canvas panels we are offer are a great addition to your building, allowing you to enjoy your Breeze House throughout the year in all weather conditions. Insulating your Breeze House and protecting it from rain and snow, the panels are available as solid fabric, or with half clear and full clear sections, so you can still enjoy the views and vistas of your garden.

As you can see, we put a great deal of time, effort and research into all our materials to create a Breeze House that’s both durable and appealing, just for you. Come and browse our range in Leek, Staffordshire or get in touch to find out more!
