Steel Frames


Traditionally, garden rooms were constructed with timber frames, and this continues to be a popular method. Following extensive testing however, Riverside Garden Rooms will be making all of its garden rooms with steel frames.

Our steel frames are made in the UK by our supplier in Essex, meaning we can offer fast delivery times as we are not governed by international shipping and delivery constraints.

We can also erect as much framework as possible in the warehouse, so when we arrive at your home, we can halve the time taken to build your garden room.

Garden Room Frame

Is a steel frame more durable than a timber frame?

Steel is more durable than alternative frameworks for a number of reasons. Steel will not rot so your framework will stand the test of time for many years to come, and your framework will be better resistant to extreme weather conditions and less of a fire risk.

Put simply, steel framed garden rooms will not crack, warp, twist, rot, split or settle. There is a reason why the first use of steel in building frameworks was for skyscrapers in 1883, and to do this day that has not changed!

Are steel framed garden rooms better for the environment?

Currently, steel compromises around 75% of all major appliances, with one of the benefits to using steel being the low carbon footprint it produces. The recycling of steel in the UK saves enough energy to power around 18 million homes for an entire year, and surprisingly, is recycled more than any other product, including paper, plastic and glass. One of the main reasons that steel is so widely recycled is because it can be repeatedly recycled without any loss of strength.

Are steel framed garden rooms quicker to install?

Our technology allows us to input precise measurements for the project, producing the entire framework in a matter of hours. Assembling the panels can be done before we even arrive, meaning we significantly reduce the time on site.

Our team of installers are specialist multi-traders too, meaning we can undertake the works from start to finish as quickly as possible, minimising disruption.
