Timber supplies suitable for wood structures
The inherent strength of wood means that it is the perfect material to create robust, solid structures which do not jar with their surroundings and blend in well with the environment. From roof trusses and timber frames, to Structural Insulated Panel Systems (SIPS), timber can provide an alternative eco-friendly, adaptable and economical building material. The typical timber supplies that are suitable to create tough structures are Oak, Douglas Fir and Larch.
Timber supplies for exterior use
From decking and fencing, to external cladding and windows, timber is one of the leading choices for making buildings blend in seamlessly with their natural surroundings. The durability of wood combines with its attractiveness to create structures that are both functional and beautiful. Using timber for landscaping creates an outdoor natural sanctuary to escape from the high tech modern, man-made world. Timber supplies particularly good for these projects are Cedar and Pine.
Using timber supplies in the interior of a building adds sensuous warmth to the inside. Hardwood timber flooring is practical, long lasting and extremely beautiful. However, using wood inside does not have to be limited to the flooring, as there are timber supplies for panelling, staircases and balustrades and doors. These can add visual impact and make a distinctive and stylish statement in any building.
The range of interior timber supplies is vast and varies from Oak and Pine to Walnut. The choice is really dependant on individual tastes, preferences and budget.
