Discover the Wonder of Wood

With such a pleasant climate throughout the year in Spain, it’s no wonder that we choose to spend more time in our garden than anywhere else. Which is why it pays to give it the personal touch…

Spanish properties can often appear quite plain and clinical from the outside. However, with a world of inspired ideas for a charming finish to your garden or terrace, you can quickly make your home your own with thanks to Woodworks Direct.

Serving clients up and down the coast from Valencia, North Alicante to Malaga and Estepona, the company prides itself on providing distinctive garden structures at affordable prices, and using only the finest quality timber to complete the job. They specialise in the manufacture of Pergolas, Carports, Gazebos and Lean-to’s and other useful structures which are supplied in a user-friendly kit form, so very simple to erect even for the DIY phobic’s amongst us and as the name suggests delivered directly to your door!

Aside from providing a pretty addition to the garden, these solid timber Pergolas offer a plethora of functions also creating a pleasant seating area, walkway or a climbing structure for plants. Woodworks Direct has a range of styles and sizes, which are custom made to the clients requirements using fine, solid timber.

Another way to create shade is with the addition of a decorative Gazebo or Lean-to, perfect for partying and entertaining under or for simply chilling out. These are available in various sizes but can be made to measure if required.

Car Ports are an ideal solution in hot climates as they protect the vehicle from the sun, prolonging the life of tyres and paintwork, whilst also helping to keep the interior cool.

Woodworks Direct carries standard sized carport framework, with horizontal rafters made from 6” x 2” (150mm x 50mm) and the upright posts from 4”x 4” (100mm x 100mm) although these dimensions can be modified to suit the individual’s requirements.

Finally Woodworks Direct will also take care of your pets as the range also extends to the manufacture of elegant Timber Horse Stables, Wooden Dog Kennels and Donkey Enclosures. These are made from the same quality timber as all other products, and clients even have the option of  adding doors, windows, a felted roof or sun reflective roof sheets to keep the interior cool, making their best friends home as comfortable as possible.

Other products also hand made and on offer from Woodworks Direct are Heavy Duty Timber Garden Sheds, Solid Timber Picnic Benches, Log Stores and Timber Decking for your garden.

Woodworks Direct pride themselves on their professionalism and reliability, arranging a suitable delivery time with the client and always informing them if they might be delayed.

Deliver is usually completed within 5 – 15 working days, depending on the complexity of the order. Each pack comes complete with fittings, with no cutting necessary as the pieces slot together and are simply secured in place. Plus a detailed set of Installation instructions is given in English so there is no need to hire a translator to get the job done. And if you are still unsure, or have neither the time nor inclination to embark on the DIY adventure, Woodworks Direct have a team of skilled installers  who are more than happy to take care of things on your behalf.

Finally the team are happy to visit you in person to discuss any ideas which you may have and help to fine tune them, before formulating a genuine, no obligation quote. Essentially for a wealth of ideas that won’t cost the earth it has to be Woodworks Direct.
