Garden Room Care and Maintenance

How to best take care of your Garden Room

When you choose a bespoke luxury garden room with Crown Pavilions you are choosing quality. Our team of highly skilled craftsmen are passionate about their work, and use only the finest materials and time-honoured techniques. We ensure that the finished garden room is built to exacting standards, but there are recommended garden room care and maintenance tasks that are required for you to ensure the longevity of your garden room.

Taking Care of the Timber – Cedar and Redwood

We treat the timber to ensure durability. During the initial installation of your garden room, our team of highly skilled craftsmen take great care to ensure that this has been done in accordance with our strict quality assurance policy. All we ask is that the concrete base is prepared to include a Damp Proof Membrane.

It is up to you to carry out regular checks and maintenance of your garden room which includes clearing away debris, detritus and any leaves from the interior and exterior of your garden building. This must be done at least once a year but we recommend once a month in order to get the most out of your garden room.

Once a year (ideally in late spring or summer) all soft furnishing and blinds should be removed, in order for the appropriate wood treatment to be applied to the timber of your pavilion using a soft brush or cloth. We recommend that you allow 2-4 days after treatment for the preserver to dry before you replace your garden building’s soft furnishings, in order to avoid staining.

The following are recommended treatments for the material of your garden building:-

Cedar Wood

Use a good quality Cedar oil preserver and apply this generously in order to protect the timber against rot, and repel insects. You can call Crown Pavilions Customer Service on 01491 612 820 to place an order.

For this we recommend a good quality fence and shed wood preserver which will help protect against rot, mould and fungi. During the initial build of your garden room, all base timber in contact with the ground, and the newel posts which support the roof structure, are pressure treated with Tanalith E preservative. You can call Crown Pavilions Customer Service on 01491 612 820 to make an order.

Garden Room Soft Furnishings and Blinds

Crown Pavilions provide a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty against faulty workmanship of all soft furnishings and blinds provided by Crown Pavilions from the time of order. The canvas we use for our blinds is Solution Dyed Acrylic and has been treated with a mildew and rot resistant chemical. We do recommend that you regularly lightly clean your soft furnishings and blinds using warm soapy water (no hotter than 30°C), and avoid the use of strong detergents.

Garden Room Electrical Goods

All electrical goods purchased with your pavilion include a 1 year warranty from time of order.

We offer a variety of heaters, spotlights and waterproof TVs but please be aware that we do not connect, install or fit any purchased electrical goods. We recommend that you approach a qualified NICEEIC Part P electrician with regards to the fitting or installation of electrical goods.
