  • Pre-Built or Pre-Cut: Which Should You Buy?


    Today’s consumers have the luxury of choice with many of their purchase decisions, and saunas are certainly no exception. With such a wide variety of options on the market, many shoppers can get lost in the mix. So where do you start and what kind do you get? Two of the most popular traditional rock sauna styles we offer are pre-built saunas and pre-cut saunas. These two types of sauna kits get mixed up all the time, so we want our customers to be educated about the differences so they can make the most qualified purchase decision during the upcoming holiday season.

    Pre-Built Traditional Rock Saunas

    Pre-built sauna kits come in an easy-to-assemble kit and are self-contained, freestanding units. These modular, prefabricated wall units fit together easily and provide greater flexibility in terms of being portable. You can take these saunas with you when you move, so they make a great option for someone who relocates often. Sauna assembly can vary by room size and shape, and can take as little as one to two hours to put together. Then you are ready to relax and sweat away the toxins!

    Pre-built saunas come in a variety of sizes ranging from a 4 x 4 foot room suitable for two people to a 9 x 10 foot family sauna and larger. The pre-built wall and ceiling panels are made from Grade A Clear Western cedar wood and are also available in fir, poplar, or spruce. Assembly is further simplified with pre-built sauna benches, a pre-installed door, and all the parts and accessories needed to complete your installation.

    These pre-built (also called prefabricated) home saunas can be installed indoors or outdoors. If you want to install it indoors, we suggest you assemble the steam sauna room on a waterproof surface such as tile, concrete, or linoleum. For outdoors, a poured concrete slab is the best. Roof kits are also available to convert an inside sauna into an outdoor sauna. We advise you to apply a water sealant to the exterior wood to protect the walls from the elements if you are converting from an indoor to an outdoor sauna.

    Pre-Cut Traditional Rock Saunas

    Pre-cut sauna kits are made for converting an existing room, large closet, or old laundry room/bathroom into a sauna. These are great for the do-it-yourselfer that wants to be actively involved with the assembly of their new sauna, as well as save money. You need to build an insulated stud frame room to install the sauna kit if you don’t have a good-sized area available for the sauna.

    For pre-cut sauna kits, you are required to provide the structural framing, insulation, vapor barrier, and exterior paneling. Everything else that you need to line the inside of the room with cedar, as well as a pre-hung door, pre-built benches and duck board floor, bucket, ladle, wall light, and more are supplied in the kit. These kits offer a variety of different design options and allow the customer to put their own personal touch on the sauna. The options are endless!

    With the holidays coming up, a new sauna would be the perfect addition to your house or condo. It would offer a great way for your family to spend quality time together while relaxing and improving their health.  What are you waiting for?
