Western Red Cedar Cladding
All the cladding, windows, doors and external trims are made from 100% Western Red Cedar from Canada. This is traditional timber used for garden buildings and greenhouses because it is very durable and extremely resistant to rot. Alton summerhouses are treated with a clear oil based protector in their workshops.
Georgian Windows and Doors
Made in Alton's own workshop by skilled carpenters - every Alton summerhouse will come with Georgian windows and doors manufactured from Western red cedar and glazed with toughened safety glass.
Heavy Duty Tanalised Floor
The Alton Summerhouses include a 19mm thick heavy-duty Tanalised floor and floor joists for a strong and long-lasting floor.
Whether single or double, your summerhouse door will be fitted with a proper 3 lever mortice lock so you can lock your contents away.
Red Felt Roof
As standard every Alton summerhouse has a red felt roof which matches the cedar cladding nicely. This may need replacing every few years if open to the elements.
Easy to Build
All Alton Summerhouses are delivered in pre-assembled panels for a straightforward self assembly.
Stainless Steel Fixings
All the fixings provided are stainless steel. This helps to prevent unsightly black stains from rusty screws that you see on most sheds.
Satin-Chrome Door and Window Furniture
Window catches, door hinges, bolts and door hooks are all finished in a high-quality chrome - again giving a distinguished and enhanced feel to the building.
Cedar Slatted Roof Upgrade
The optional Cedar slatted roof not only makes your summerhouse more attractive, it also covers the red felt and cedar trims at the bottom of the roof. This means your felt will not be exposed to the elements and it will last much longer. This option is well worth the additional expense, as it will prove value for money in the long run.

Here's a photo illustrating just what you can achieve in one of these fantastic summerhouses.
The cedar cladding and ornate Georgian windows gives these summerhouses the perfect setting for a nice piece of garden furniture, where you can entertain friends and family - as shown here in the 9ft x 8ft Mickleton.
The optional Cedar slatted roof not only makes your summerhouse more attractive in appearance - it adds a much longer life to your roof.
The Cedar slatted roof not only covers the felt roof - giving you a double protection, it also covers the cedar trims at the bottom, keeping water away from your building.
The plywood roof gives a nice neat surface on the inside of your summerhouse.
Made from natural hardwoods, the plywood roof gives additional strength and support to your summerhouse, while the colour variation in the natural hardwoods can vary - creating a very similar effect to the cedar cladding.
The internal framework of Alton summerhouses is made from high grade redwood of various thickness - including 69mm x 44mm for the roof joists.
Roof joists are machined at both ends and fit seamlessly with the purposely designed galvanized steel boss (as seen in the plywood roof photo) - which is strong and makes assembly far easier.

Your Alton summerhouse will be delivered by one of Alton's experienced delivery partners, ensuring that your building reaches you in perfect condition. Alton summerhouses are normally sold in a 'self-assembly' kit-form, with which you will be provided all of the necessary fittings and full, easy-to-follow instructions. As with all of our summerhouses, we always recommend that you provide a good, level base prior to delivery.
Our delivery times can vary from season to season, but typically you should expect to receive your building around 4-6 weeks from point of order. All of our buildings are made to order, so during the busy spring to summer seasons this may increase to 6-10 weeks, dependent on the building that you purchase.
