Outside Canopy Help!


Recommended Posts

To make our outside area more weather proof, we need a new canopy. Currently we have a metal stucture with a plastic corrugated roof. It lets the rain in through the sides, so making activities such as painting, constuction etc difficult and ruins alot of the equipment. After a frost we get a high level of condensation that drips for half of the day!!

We have fundraised alot to improve our outside provision, so with the money left plus a very generous donation we are looking to deal with this canopy.

Can anyone recommend a canopy/company?

Is a wooden structure better or is it higher maintenence?

Are pull down sides worth having?

I have done a bit of research on the net but would love to hear a good recommendation before we part with the well earned cash!

Thanks in advance for any help or tips, Rach x

Timberline do some Gazovas.A 6x6 on it's own though is £4111. The side panels are £265 each and you need at least 6, so it is expensive but they look really sturdy. You can find them at www.timberline.co.uk.

Our latest quote for a permanent attached roof structure with removable side panelling is a whopping

£12,000!!!!!!!! :o

WOW! Got no where near that much. We had Timberlines brochure they do look very nice, but the powers that be were worried about maintenance. It did say every 3 yrs you would need to treat it, but to me thats not too bad.

Thanks again for your help, i keep you posted what happens!
