Not insulated, but...

Finally, some weather befitting the time of year. After the coldest and wettest May in memory, June’s been a pleasant assault on the senses – the light and heat making being outside a truly glorious experience.

It’s cooled down a little this week though – thankfully not back to Arctic April, but enough to at least make you second-guess the decision to don flipflops.

In truth, we’re in that slightly awkward phase of the weather, where it’s a little too hot for jumpers and jeans, but a bit too risky for shorts and skirts.

The walker in me has a solution here though; layers, giving you enough to guard against the cold without a full-on winter outfit.

Plenty of our customers face a similar quandary when it comes to the timber garden building they choose.

While they don’t plan to spend hours working in them, especially in the winter, they don’t want them to be so cold during October to April that they’re just off limits.

And that’s where many consider insulation, and then dismiss it after they find out the additional cost.

If that’s a decision you’ve been mulling over for a while, there are solutions.

You see, insulation isn’t necessary for everyone, and by adding other features, like double glazing and lining, you can ensure that your building is usable all year round, without having to make the additional investment into insulation.

If you’re not sure whether you need insulation or not, just get in touch and we’ll be happy to talk you through the various options.
