Environmental

Environmental issues are important to us; all of our timber is legal & sustainably sourced.

Since all of our timber is very durable without treatment it is the natural and green choice.

We mill timber cladding and decking for delivery direct to site therefore the environmental transportation impact is kept to a minimum.

We understand that timber quality and delivery timescales are very important to our customers.

Sawn timber is held in our yard ready to cut to order, any bespoke or standard cladding profile can be cut at the same price. We can also cut matching trim for windows, doors and soffits. We mill Western red cedar, Thermowood cladding and Siberian Larch timber cladding.

We can offer factory staining and fire treatment for all of our timber cladding, decking and trim.

Please visit our Timber cladding blog where we are currently trailing different  treatments to asses the weathering properties.

Benchmark Timber only mill Sustainable Timber cladding

About 95 per cent of British Columbia’s 55 million hectares (136 million acres) of diverse forestland is publicly owned.

All timber harvesting operations on these public lands must comply with the results based Forest and Range Practices Act.

Before any logging can begin on public lands, a company must be issued a cutting permit by government setting out the boundaries of the area approved to be harvested.

Timber from both public and private lands is tracked to ensure there is no illegal harvesting.

Possession of unmarked or incorrectly marked timber can lead to imprisonment of up to two years.

Benefits of Timber Cladding

Improved Insulation

Timber Cladding can offer energy cost savings along with improved insulation properties.
Weight savings along with timber frames and lightweight roofs an offer significant weight savings compared with masonry. Foundation widths and depths can therefore be reduced.

Design Flexibility

Modern contemporary and traditional designs can be easily achieved..
Timber cladding can reduce construction lead times and therefore reduce build costs.
Renovation and future proofing new builds is also a real benefit.

Use of Natural Recourses

As an environmentally friendly and renewable natural resource wood cladding is accepted as a low environmental impact material. This compares favourably with non renewable materials.

Contempory Design

Timber cladding is popular because it can give an attractive contemporary design while offering a very low carbon footprint. Timber has been recognised as one of the least carbon intensive building materials, it can be very economical too and we are able to offer various grades to fit your budget.

You can find some great examples of how timber cladding has been used effectively in our Timber cladding gallery  or at: http://www.woodawards.com.

Care must be taken in selecting timber species, we can offer full advice in this respect. Care must also be taken in choosing the correct cladding profile. Some are best for horizontal and others for vertical applications. A Feather edge profile can be great for barn conversions and we can offer this with a sawn or planed finish. Please take a look at our profiles page.

We can mill any other timber cladding profile, just send us a sketch or phone for advice. We also have a page showing trim we have previously milled, we can do others so please ask.

Price - from £36.00 per square M for 25 x150mm planed cladding.
Durability - durability grade 2 (durable) according to BS EN350. Cedar is durable without treatment.
Movement and splitting - Cedar is one of the more stable timbers and tendency to cup, split and move is low.
Knot and sap content - the number of knots and sap content is low on clear grades of coastal grown cedar.
Environmental impact - Sustainable timber. logging is tightly controlled.

Canadian western red cedar is the premium timber for timber cladding being naturally durable and dimensionally stable. The most popular choice for contemporary builds. Please visit our Cedar cladding page.

Western Red Cedar (UK grown)

Price - from £28.00 per square M for 25 x150mm planed cladding.
Durability - durability grade 3 (moderately durable) according to BS EN350. UK Cedar should be treated.
Movement and splitting - Cedar is one of the more stable timbers and tendency to cup, split and move is low.
Knot and sap content - UK Cedar is generally more knotty than Canadian cedar and has a higher sap content which is why we recommend  treating to obtain durability. Although the same species as Canadian cedar the UK grows so much faster resulting in different properties.
Environmental impact - Sustainable timber. logging is tightly controlled.

UK grown western red cedar is a lower cost alternative to Canadian cedar but being lighter in colour with more knots and less durable it does not offer the same contemporary look. Please visit our Cedar cladding page.

Thermowood (heat treated redwood pine)
