Timber

We keep a wide range of sawn treated and planed timber.

We offer a cutting service on timber and sheet material. 

Our timber comes in various lengths, thicknesses and widths. These are usually metric equivalents to traditional imperial sizes.  

The planed timbers go from 21 x  21  mm (1 x 1 PAR) up to about 270 x 22 mm (11 x 1 PAR).  There is 45 x 45 mm, 45 x 70 mm. 70 x 70 mm, 70 x 95 mm and 95 x 95 mm. 

As a general guide the lengths are going to be 2.4 m, 3.0 m, 3.6 m, 4.2 m, 4.8m and 5.4m.  

There are too many variations to list here but I'll also mention we do a variety of doorstops, door lining sets and  door frames. There are softwood and hardwood window boards and window cills in a selection of sizes to suit most needs  and budgets. 

Other items include ;

WBP Plywood  and MDF from 6mm to 25 mm. Timber and MDF  skirting  and architraves /  Plasterboard / Philippine Mahogany and Oak Hardwood / Mouldings /  T and G Floorboards / PVC fascia and cladding . . . and many more! 

More unusual items such as 8" or 9" pine ogee / taurus skirting can be ordered in.  

Over the years the sawn timber has changed it's appearance and it name. Some people call it treated, tanalised or C24.  The term C24 is related to stres testing the timber for it's strength. It's no longer sawn in appearance, it is fairly smooth to the touch and green from the pressure treatment. Sizes in lengths are similar to the planed timber except that 6m is a common size. 
Generally people will ask for these in imperial. The boards in the picture below have 2 x 8 written on them as well as 4.2m. The mix of metric and imperial is an odd situation but that is how it is.  

To keep it simple, the dimensions include 2 by 2, 3 x 2, 4 x2,  up to 9 by 2.  We cut 2 by 1 sometimes but due to the knots in the timber it can fall apart which is wasteful.  Instead we tend to sell a tanalised tile baton at 25 by 38 /39 mm by 3.6 m.
There are 3 by 3 and 4 by 4 posts (95 x 95) at 2.4 and 3m. We also stock individual feather edge boards as well as made up panels for fencing.
