All Tiger Log Cabins are supplied completely untreated as a standard.
The Logs are cut to be such a precise and tight fit that if we were to treat the Logs prior to assembly, a build up of treatment or swelling of the logs with absorption of treatment may result in the Logs not fitting together correctly.
You will need to treat the Cabin thoroughly inside and out as soon as possible after assembly to validate the Timber Guarantee and prevent any absorption or ingress of water into the Log Cabin.
We offer a range of Tiger Sheds Preserver which would be suitable for this and also stock a selection of the Cuprinol Garden Shades. However, any good quality waterproofing wood treatment will suffice.
If we didn't build it, we don't sell it. We're proud to say that every garden building is made in our own mill in Leeds. This gives us complete control over the manufacturing, from start to finish, so we can ensure only top-grade timber makes the cut. Our expert craftspeople and precision machinery mean our sheds and log cabins are built to the highest quality – Tigers always stay sharp.
We offer 20-year protection against general timber rot and decay. That said, many people find our sheds last more than 25 years, because we build them to be the toughest around. We treat our timber with a specially formulated preservative, developed over many years – for a weatherproof, lifeproof seal. We call this protective stain our Tiger Skin. It's our iconic mark of quality. It's why, along with our expert 8-point quality check, that spans from forest to factory, you can trust a Tiger to survive.
We’re not afraid to say it – our sheds aren’t the cheapest. But they’re the best value. You get what you pay for. Here are just few of the features you only get with a Tiger:
We only use slow-grown, high-grade FSC-accredited European softwood, sawn in our own mill so we can oversee the quality. Better for you, better for the planet.
