Air Dried Beams

Air-dried Oak Beams

Air dried oak beams are machine-sawn and straight. They have had no prior use and can be re-cut to specified dimensions. The longer these beams have been air dried the more stable and less prone to movement and cracking they become.

These can be purchased in their raw weathered state, alternatively we also offer a full preparation service which includes cleaning, chamfering and waxing of the beams ready for installation.

Suitable for:

New builds, extensions, garages, pergolas. Air-dried oak is more stable and less prone to warping and splitting than ‘green’ oak which can move once installed very significantly.

Reclaimed Oak Beams

Reclaimed Oak Beams

Contact us for a quote

Reclaimed oak beams have had a previous use and have three advantages: they are dry and stable therefore less prone to any movement; the tone of the oak has matured to a rich highly desirable colour and they have real character with knots, twists and evidence of their previous lives.

These can be purchased in their raw weathered state, alternatively we also offer a full preparation service which includes cleaning, chamfering and waxing of the beams ready for installation.

Suitable for:

Decorative and cosmetic use where character and age is the priority. Reclaimed beams can be finished to closely match pre-existing timbers.

Oak Beams to clad RSJ’s

Oak beams to clad RSJ’s have been especially selected for their straightness and are bespoke cut so that the core of the wood is removed to create an original ‘U’ shaped casing, often used to enclose a steel RSJ or other structure which needs to be camouflaged.

These can be purchased in their raw weathered state or we can provide a full preparation and waxing service.

We can also provide 2-sided or 4-sided covers please contact us with the dimensions you need to cover and we can provide a quote.

Suitable for:

Profiled beams allow unsightly architectural features such as steel lintels and electrical ducting to become stunning period features clad within real oak beam casings.
