There are two types of timber which are known as hardwood and softwood. However, the names of these different types do not refer to properties of the timber. Hardwood can be soft and softwood can be soft, it entirely depends on the specific type of timber as there are several different timbers that come under both types. It is also a very sustainable building material and therefore very popular within the industry. At Stan Dawson, we stock a huge variety of different timber supplies to suit any project! Whether you’re looking to start a DIY project or are stocking materials for construction purposes, we will have the materials you need to take this to the next level. If you are interested in our Timber Ashington service please do not hesitate to call today on 01661 860413!
Different Types of Timber We Stock
Flooring: We have many types of timber flooring in several different dimensions to suit your needs. We offer both softwood and hardwood flooring so that all tastes and preferences are catered to. Hardwood is a denser material and often provides a better aesthetical look to the flooring, however, softwood can be modified more easily. The choice of wood for flooring will entirely depend on the look you wish to create for your house.
Cladding: This is most common for sheds and other wooden structures. We stock a variety of different materials for timber cladding in order to provide your shed or other structure with more support. We offer both treated and untreated wall cladding. Treated cladding is a better option for those who wish to protect their timber from termites, humidity and other environmental damage.
Decking: As summer is fast approaching, many people will be looking to touch up their decking or implement a new structure into their garden. At Stan Dawson, we mainly stock softwood decking as this is normally the best option. You can also view our range of sample boards at our yard. Decking is an excellent investment to make and adds much value to a home and adds a more personal touch to a garden too. Our team of experts will help you choose the perfect decking materials.
Fencing: It is important that you choose durable and strong timber for any fencing or fence posts. A large majority of our fencing timber is tantalised and treated as this protects the material from being exposed to termites, weather, humidity and other outdoor influences. Our fencing materials are most commonly used for garden fencing and temporary fencing in the agricultural industry.
We also stock a range of high-quality telegraph poles, railway sleepers, sheet materials and much more. If you don’t see a product you’re after on our website, please give us a call and we may still have some available in our yard!
