With their sloped sides, hip roofs are more resistant to rain and wind. So, if you’re looking for a great-looking log cabin that’s even more durable than a standard Tiger building, take a look at our range of hip-roofed log cabins below:
All Tiger cabin logs are designed to interlock with a chamfered finish to ensure a snug fit. The unique four-way chamfered notch system is specially designed to prevent damp or wind penetration. A smooth, solid, strong barrier engineered to meet our high quality standards.
Our timber is sustainably sourced. We use slow grown European softwood, cut in our own sawmill to a high grade. Each log fits tongue and groove for strength and solidity, and is cut to an 0.01mm tolerance. The extra thick 44mm logs have a double tongue and groove for an even firmer link.
Tiger garden buildings come with TigerFelt® as standard. This is a thicker, polyester-backed high-grade mineral felt to provide a reliable, weatherproof barrier with reduced wear and tear. Only premium quality roofing felt will do!
Joiner-made doors and windows are supplied fully glazed or boarded, and all external doors are fitted with mortice locks, with double glazing, 5 way lever locks and roof shingles upgrades also available.
From just adding an extra window, to something completely original, our expertise means we can help you add your personality into your perfect space. As we mill the timber ourselves, we can be much more flexible than the competition – and much more creative!
Beware of imitations- log cabins which use cheaper styrene plastic windows (which tend to ‘mist’ or shatter easily over time). All Tiger log cabins come with 4mm thick toughened glass as standard. This glazing is more shock and heat resistant than horticultural glass in many other buildings, making your Tiger all the more durable.
With over 100 years of working with timber, we know all about the properties of wood. As well as a wide range of eco-friendly, durable colourful range of pains, we have developed five shades of TigerSkin® Wood Protector to help maintain your building and keep it looking fresh and new with a natural look.
Your Tiger log cabin is simple to put together, using the helpful instructions and videos available, and will look great on a firm & level base constructed from a suitably durable material. We also offer a professional installation service for all Tiger log cabins to make enjoying your new space even easier to achieve!
All Tiger buildings are made to exactly the same high standards, with exactly the same quality timber – so they get exactly the same market-leading Tiger 20 Year Guarantee. Tigers are built to last for decades with.
