Our Process

We welcome anybody who would like to use timber in their projects.

We ask you to tell us to want to want your building to look like or even better for you to show us images of your plans or ideas.  We enjoy bringing our clients dreams and aspirations to reality we love challenges in timber cladding and timber flooring.

We then show you different samples and images available for you to consider in the various wood types and species for your wood cladding and wood flooring. If the examples are not to your taste, we use our craftsman or woodworking teams to work on your ideas to produce project samples.

We also look at Environmental certification as we are both FSC Certified and PEFC Certified and we supply FSC and PEFC Certified timber. We promote sustainable weatherboarding, flooring and ensure we conform to the EUTR European Timber Regulation to providing that not just legal timber is used on your project but sustainable wood aswell. This gives us joy in knowing that we are supplying sustainable wood for cladding and flooring projects we have a full chain of supply to allow our customers to trace the chain of custody.

We can offer various patterns, designs from bespoke, standard or match; we can supply you with any pattern you require from tongue and groove, shiplap, square edge, weatherboarding, shadow line, Microline, rhombus in sawn, planed cladding, log-lap cladding or textured finishes.

We help you choose the correct orientation for your selected timber cladding, vertical cladding or horizontal or diagonal cladding.

The timber we supply comes in varying levels of durability we can help you choose from our stock timber that will have a service life of up to 15years, up to 30 years or up to 60 years in the very durable species.

Cost is never an indication of whether a species if better, or we help customers choose their timber products wisely a  cheap timber could last as long as some as the very durable timbers. There some alternatives expensive timber claddings, e.g. we have alternatives for cedar cladding, alternatives for Accoya cladding.

We have much cladding that is off the shelf in stock  that can be delivered  in 5 working days we have some timbers that will be delivered in 20 days, or more this may be due to the additional processes required, e.g. Fire Retardant treatment

After Care Costs are very important when choosing your cladding project, we look at the elevations and details and consider how often you may need to clean your cladding based on exposure, pollution etc, e.g. if your cladding is close to a busy motorway you may need more maintenance, e.g. cleaning off of pollutants from your cladding.

We also give you a free timber quote to compare the different types of timbers. It is true that timber consumers have such a large selection of timber products to choose from, from solid natural wood, modified timber e.g. Accoya, thermowood Ayous, Ash, Frake, hardwoods Sapele Oak Utile, Ekki, Iroko softwoods ( Siberian larch, Scottish larch, Imported Canadian western red cedar, Homegrown cedar) etc. Different types of finishes oiled, painted, burnt charred, shou sugi ban.
