Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions about our garden rooms, prices, delivery and installation.

How much will my outdoor room cost?

The price will depend on what specification and size you would like - we can provide comprehensive specification details for a number of fully priced examples - please contact us for more information.


What is included in the price?

All quoted prices include VAT, delivery to mainland UK and the full installation service including foundations.

What is not included in the price?

In the unlikely event that you need planning permission for your outdoor room, we can liaise directly with your Local Authority Planning Department. Our charge for this service is £650 which includes the application fee to the Local Authority.


Do I need planning permission?

Planning permission is about what can be constructed and where it can be positioned. Generally speaking you will not need planning permission unless you are lucky enough to live in a National Park, the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a World Heritage Site, where in most cases you will need planning approval.  You will also be likely to need planning permission if you live in a flat, a listed building and occasionally if you live in a conservation area.

Permitted development rights depend on compliance with criteria set out by planning departments and Central Government. Please contact us for further information on planning permission.

Should I be concerned with Building Regulations?

Building regulations govern how a building is designed and constructed. Most garden rooms up to 30sqm are exempt from building regulations. Exceptions to this are if the building will be used for sleeping accommodation and some building regulations apply to all garden rooms such as part 'P' which covers electrical safety.

Each room4-you is provided with appropriate certification on completion. If your building is to be installed within 1m of your boundary and is greater in size than 15sqm fire safety requirements must be adhered to. Please contact us for further information on building regulations.

Who will install my outdoor room?

Each room4-you is designed by our in house designers, manufactured in our South Yorkshire factory and installed (usually within 4 days) by our team of fully trained construction professionals.

How will my outdoor room be delivered?

Each room4-you is delivered to your home within 4 weeks and our team of installers will arrange for transfer of each component to your chosen location. Every component is engineered to facilitate ease of transportation and we can, if necessary, carry each panel through your house.

Note: Deliveries are timed to coincide with the first day of construction.

How do I finance my investment in a room4-you?

This depends on personal circumstances but a popular and cost effective method is to either extend your mortgage or release some equity. We are happy to discuss all alternatives including a lease option which can be extremely cost effective and tax efficient for anyone self employed or running their own business.

We recommend you discuss this with your accountant and although we are not financial advisors we would be happy to introduce a trusted independent partner who will be able to guide you through any payment options.

An investment normally has a financial return; what can I expect from a room4-you?

Opinions differ widely and some suggestions are that you can recoup the full value of your investment.  We believe that in the current market a conservative view is prudent.  Research has shown that investment in a fully insulated, professionally installed garden room will increase the value of your property by approximately 5%.  If you choose a self contained annex the return will increase.

Can you install decking and provide a landscape service?

Yes, our affiliation with a construction company allows us to offer a full design and build landscape service at very competitive rates.

What warranties are offered?

Each room4-you is designed to exceed all building regulations enforced for modern domestic housing, our unique outdoor rooms are permanent structures providing a long term enhancement of your living space. Our uncompromising standards and attention to detail gives confidence in offering a full 10 year warranty backed by the Consumer Protection Association. More information on the CPA is available from the CPA website.

Our ability to source top quality materials means we have every confidence in passing on the full manufacturer’s guarantee for all ancillary items.

As a responsible manufacturer, we also include, at no extra cost, deposit indemnity insurance also from the CPA. This provides you with peace of mind that any deposit lodged with us is safe.

What maintenance is required?

Once again this depends on which options you choose but each option will only require minimal, if any maintenance. Part of our founding ethos is that we responsibly source materials partly based on their durability. Timber window and door frames have factory applied paint finishes which are guaranteed for 10 years. For information on the external cladding options please contact us.

Do you visit the site?

Yes, we will always visit site before providing a detailed quotation. Please contact us for details of our consultation process.

Can I use a room4-you instead of an extension?

Our buildings are designed with the flexibility of either being detached from your main house or we are in the process of developing a unique method of fixing the building to your home. Our solid, beautiful buildings are considerably better value than a traditional extension and are constructed in a fraction of the time, with none of the usual disruption.

Is lighting included?

Lighting schemes can bring different atmospheres to your unique outdoor room and we are happy to work with you to ensure your room4-you is lit exactly the way you want it. Each unique outdoor room is provided with economical low wattage ceiling down-lighters located to suit the layout you specify. External lighting can be provided with movement sensors.

Will I need gutters and a soak away?

Yes, gutters are essential in ensuring the walls and surrounding ground is kept dry. We hide a lot of the drainage behind the cladding and include 1 downpipe which can be directed to a soak away or ideally into a water butt for later use around your home and garden.

How do I get a quotation?
