Logs are purchased direct from reputable, sustainable sources. Our bulk buying power ensures the best prices for you
Some of our materials come from our own plantations meaning that we can directly put back into the environment, ensuring that there will be quality Garden Sheds in South Africa for years to come.
Buying raw materials rather than finished components means that we can:
give you the highest level of quality in South Africa by control the entire manufacturing process from beginning to end
ensure that by purchasing from us you are not contributing to damaging the environment
deliver quality and still be competive on price
We believe in durability. Whether you are purchasing a small kennel or a large Nutec Wendy House it should be build to last. All our structures come with hard wood frames as standard. This is usually in the form of saligna, a locally grown type of eucalyptus, which is actually an invader species. Nearly all our frames are built from saligna that has been cleared either because it was destroying the local water table, or to make way for new development.
Our fall back timber for frames is meranti, which is a fast growing hard wood, grown in plantations in south east Asia. This makes it a sustainable source of timber, and an excellent choice for frames
Both these timbers are known for the durability and resistance to rot. They are also both very environmentally sound choices, making them the perfect timbers for building our products.
Our traditional, wood finish structures are usually clad using local pine. Due to our large facility we are able to stock pile timber when it is available. Recently a lot of our pine has come from the efforts to return Table Mountain to its natural habitat.
Just making the best Wendy Houses, Garden Sheds, Dog Kennels, Play Houses, and Site buildings isn't enough for us.
You need to be sure that all that quality isn't wasted by shoddy installation, and who wants to have their place full of workmen for days?
And how often does it happen that the guy who says he is doing the work drops off guys he met for the first time that morning and goes to ten more sites
At Arbor Designs we have dedicated, well trained, highly skilled teams of installers. Each team is under direct supervision so you can be confident that you will get a finished product quickly and professionally.
Because our factory is equiped to fully manufacture your buildings all we have to do on site is put it back together- in most circumstances there is no onsite carpentry required, which makes for:
No mess on site
No noise disruption
Your unit is made in our factory to exacting tolerances, and is actually pre-assembled and checked before being taken apart and reassembled on site. Apart from the reduction in time spent on site, this method of making Wendy Houses has an added benefit. Unlike other manufacturers who nail their units together, we use screws. This means that if you need to move your Wendy Houses, Nutec building, dog kennel or Garden Shed it is as easy as taking out the screws. If your unit is nailed together it is virtually impossible to do this without causing extensive damage.
This attention to detail makes us Cape Town leaders in Wendy House and Nutec Wendy House manufacturing.
