OurTerminology

Buying a garden building can easily become confusing and daunting, especially when faced with all the technical terms. so let us break down the details for you and explain what we're really talking about to help you understand our products better.

Eaves

Eaves are the lower edges of the roof which overhang the face of the wall, designed to protect the building from water damage.

Ridge

The ridge of the building is the peak in which two opposing roof planes meet, creating the tallest part of the building.

Finial

The finial is a decorative edition to your building that sits at the highest point, giving your building the perfect finishing touch.

Roof Overhang

The roof overhang is the section of the roof that overhangs the face of the wall. Often this is only a matter of centimetres designed to protect the building though in some cases it is larger, creating a sheltered area.
