A garden office blog from Extra Rooms

To paint or not to paint...that is the question!


Cedar is a beautiful, classy, smooth looking wood and it’s for that reason in particular that almost all of our customers choose to have at least the front wall in cedar when they specify a Garden Room or Garden Office. This Canadian Western Red cedar really is the best around and not only does it look stunning, it’s very robust and durable too!

To stop it going grey after a year or two we always inhibit it with Osmo sun blocking oil, unless the customer specifically requests not to, but over the past month or so one or two of our customers have asked for the cedar to be painted in a strong colour such as light "coastal" blue. A different look all together but still strong and unique.

The quality of this wood is such that you, as the customer, always have complete flexibility as to whether we paint it or not and it is entriely up to you, having no effect whatsoever on the durability of your building.
