STEP 1 – Select a timber species

Talk to people who have used the species and if you can, visit sites where the species has been used to show performance over time.
STEP 2 – Timber take-off

If we deem the timber you have chosen is not fit for purpose, we will briefly advise you of some of the reasons and alternatives.

Installation is expensive too, so research your installer and visit their prior work.
STEP 4 – Purchase the timber

We recommend that you buy the timber when you find what you are looking for. You can ask us to store it until you need it, or store it yourself to avoid delays in your project. In most cases, we have backup stock on hand, just in case there is a miscalculation, or a mistake on site.
