How do I determine the right type and size of timber for my project?admin
Our experienced staff can provide expert advice and guidance to help you determine the best timber for your specific needs. Factors to consider include the intended use of the timber, the environment in which it will be used, and your budget.
What is the difference between hardwood and softwood?admin
Hardwoods come from deciduous trees that shed their leaves annually, while softwoods come from evergreen trees. Hardwoods are generally denser and stronger than softwoods, but they can be more expensive.
What is the moisture content of your timber?admin
Our timber is typically kiln-dried to a moisture content of between 10% and 15%, which helps to ensure stability and prevent warping.
Is your timber sustainably sourced?admin
Yes, we source our timber from sustainably managed forests and suppliers who adhere to responsible environmental practices.
Do you offer custom cutting and milling services?admin
Yes, we offer custom cutting and milling services to ensure that your timber is cut to the exact specifications you need.
What size timber do you stock?admin
We stock a wide range of sizes to suit various applications, from small sections for DIY projects to larger sections for construction.
