Frequently asked questions

Do I need a foundation?


Your SIPs building will need a solid, flat foundation to be built on. Our preferred method is to use ground screws that provide a level fixing point for our timbers. Ground screws are quick to install and do not require large amounts of concrete. We can provide foundations prior to installation and can assess the best solution during our site visit.




Do you use subcontractors for installation?


No. All of our work is carried out by our own team to make sure that we can ensure the highest standards of quality.




Do I need planning permission?


All of our range of buildings fall within permitted development as they are under 4 metres in height and 30m2 of internal space. If your building goes over 2.5 metres in height then you may be required to leave adequate space between you and any neighbouring boundaries. We are happy to offer advice if you are unsure of your specific situation and confirm during our site visit.




Do you check site prior to installation?


Yes. All of our customers are offered a free visit, pre sale to survey the site and discuss options as well as highlight any points of concern.




Are your buildings double glazed?


Yes, we offer double-glazed windows as standard with secure locking mechanisms.




Can the buildings be used all year round?


Absolutely. Buildings constructed from SIPs panels are industry leading with regards to thermal insulation and weather protection. Heating your SIPs building can cost up to 40% less than a traditional timber frame building during it's lifetime.




Can I have a custom designed building?


You certainly can. We can adapt one of our existing range to suit your needs or create a complete custom building for you.




Are your buildings insulated?


Our buildings are among the best insulated available today. Our modern SIPs buildings far outperform traditional timber frame buildings available elsewhere.




Can we add windows or doors?


Windows and doors can be added, taken away or repositioned. Please contact us and we will be happy to provide more information.




What type of roofing do you use?


buildings come with an EPDM rubber roof as standard. Made from recycles rubber it is incredibly durable and long lasting. Light-weight, efficient and highly resistant to extreme temperatures, EPDM is designed to last up to 50 years and is easy to maintain.




Can you provide a veranda, pergola or decking?


Yes we can provide a complete range of features for your garden to compliment your new building. Our team of designers and carpenters are happy to assist you in renovating your whole outdoor space.




Do I need to treat or paint the outside?


Our buildings are typically clad in Western Red Cedar wood which is highly weather resistant. Over time if left untreated, cedar will turn silver in colour but can be painted or treated if you prefer a different colour or to maintain the original cedar red. Other than this, our buildings are designed to be very low maintenance throughout their lifetime.




Can I add electrics or plumbing?


Electrics and plumbing can be easily installed to our buildings and it is best to consult on this during the site visit and design phases so that our plumbers and electricians can integrate your needs into the build. Please contact us to discuss your needs.




How durable are the buildings?


Our buildings are incredibly robust. The SIPs panels used in our buildings form a monolithic shell once completed which is up to 7 times stronger than a timber frame structure that most companies will provide.




How does delivery work?


Delivery will require a large vehicle and clear access to your site. We will be able to assess on your site survey the best way to manage delivery but if you are unsure then feel free to contact us to discuss.




Where do you deliver to?


We currently serve the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and London areas. If you are outside of these areas then you can still contact us to see if we can serve you or point you in the direction of a trusted partner.
