Our buildings are
RoofingOur roofs are exceptionally strong and, you’ll be delighted to learn, maintenance free.
Locks & CatchesEach door and window is lockable using high-security industry-standard and insurance compliant fittings.
Door & Window FramingAll doors and windows of our garden rooms are constructed from reinforced steel and uPVC.
FlooringThe sub-floors of our garden rooms are engineered to sit clear of the ground to allow air to circulate and remove any risk of rising damp.
Guttering4” wide guttering is provided as standard on all garden room buildings, helping to manage the flow of water from the roof and away from your garden room.
Wiring & ElectricsInternal electrics are fitted by our own part-p certified electricians. Included as standard are 3 x 13amp double sockets, consumer unit and lighting.
Internal wallsAll our garden rooms are fitted with a durable and easy-clean melamine interior. The finish is a lightly reflective soft sheen surface, which is strong enough to hold fixings such as shelving and pictures. The melamine is UV stable – meaning it is will not discolour or bleach in direct sunlight.
Exterior walls18mm thick Maintenance free, FSC sustainable certified Scandinavian redwood is used as the standard cladding choice for our garden rooms with alternative options available as upgrades.
InsulationWe use an in-house engineered wall insulation system that is eco-friendly and A+ rated for fire safety.
Our design and construction methods are meticulously engineered to provide the finest quality garden room product available on the market; and all at the best possible price.
You are guaranteed the same high-level quality throughout the entire product range from Green Retreats. As standard, each of our garden room buildings come with all the essentials you may need to get you settled into your garden room right away – all that would be required is your electrical connection to your home which we can quote for and complete for you.
Green Retreats engineer our unique wall panels from the highest standard of raw materials for a superior finish. Our highly efficient thermal insulation prevents extremes of temperature to keep you warm (or cool) all-year-round.
In every garden room we manufacture, we use a layer of PhotonWrap multifoil insulation, an air-open reflective insulating breather membrane.
The sub-floors of our garden rooms are engineered to sit clear of the ground to allow air to circulate and remove any risk of rising damp.
Constructed with 80mm polyurethane insulation sandwiched between steel sheets, which are then powder-coated on both sides for a maintenance free finish.
The interior flooring side is fitted with an underlay directly to the steel ready to be fitted with your choice of stylish flooring on top.
Our sub-floor structures are fire resistant, strong and robust; and can comfortably support over 380kg load capacity per square metre.
4” wide guttering is provided as standard on all garden room buildings, helping to manage the flow of water from the roof and away from your garden room.
The composition of our roof is a 60mm – 95mm section of high density fire resistant insulation surrounded by 2 steel plates. All weather-exposed steel elements are coated in an epoxy resin to ensure 100% weather proofing and resistance to growth of organic materials. All interior steel panels are powder-coated in a soft-sheen white finish. The roof of every building is pitched with a slight 4 degree slope from front to back, allowing water to run-off easily to the rear guttering system and down-pipe.
All doors and windows are fitted as standard with hard coated, low-e Pilkington K Optiwhite ‘extra clear’ double-glazing, which is argon filled and fitted with a Planitherm layer and Swisspacer providing superior insulation and energy efficiency.
For additional privacy it is possible to switch to obscured/frosted glass as a no cost option.
What is Rockwool
Rockwool has excellent thermal and acoustic properties, and is also water repellent and resistant to high temperatures by holding the best fire classification possible (A1), whilst being far more eco-friendly as it’s constructed from natural materials.
