Three reasons to buy a log cabin from Waltons

Three reasons to buy a log cabin from Waltons

Log cabins are a cost-effective way to add a home office, personal gym, games room or art studio to your garden. Cheaper than a conservatory or extension, they’re quick to erect and come with a range of upgrade options that make them suitable for every day, all-year-round use. Here are three excellent reasons to buy your new log cabin from Waltons...

1. Waltons log cabins are manufactured in the UK

Manufactured from FSC Certified wood, all Waltons log cabins are made by our skilled workforce here in the UK. High quality, hard-wearing and built to last, we’re so confident about our products that we supply a 10-year anti-rot guarantee (provided the log cabin has been properly maintained, of course). 

Waltons has been manufacturing garden buildings since 1878. Buying direct from the manufacturer cuts out the middleman and keeps costs low. Although we supply many well-known, high street retailers, you can buy your log cabin direct from our website, calling on the Waltons’ experienced customer service team for advice if required. 

2. You can choose your log thickness

There’s a log cabin to suit every budget. If you’re mainly planning to use your cabin in the summer, keep the cost right down by choosing one of our 19mm tongue and groove models. To extend the use into spring and autumn, take a look at our 28mm or 34mm options. And if you want your extra living or work accommodation for all year round use, trade up to a 44mm thick log cabin for optimum warmth and comfort.

3. You can choose your glazing option

Of course it’s not just the log thickness that helps to keep your log cabin warm – the glazing plays a part too. Waltons glazing conforms to EN 12150 safety glass standards, offering strong, thermally toughened, safety glass with an increased resistance to stress. Should the glass break, it forms small, granulated chunks rather than razor-sharp shards. 

In addition, our sealed, double-glazed units also help to keep your log cabin warm, providing energy savings and sound insulation. And, if you want to use your log cabin in a way that requires building regulations or planning permission, our glazing makes the grade. 

Don’t require a fully double-glazed log cabin? Our budget-friendly log cabins give you all the extra space you need, but are fitted with shatter-proof styrene instead. Designed for outdoor buildings, styrene is a safe, economical and environmentally-friendly alternative to glass.
