Wood Timbers and Beams are normally supplied green (unseasoned) with a full, rough sawn appearance, our Western Red Cedar timbers are available in clear or knotty grades. Cedar timbers can be surfaced on all four sides (S4S) to produce a smooth, uniform appearance.
Timbers and beams are also available in Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Doug Fir and Hemlock as well as other soft woods in a variety of sizes and dimensions for both interior and exterior use.
Should you wish to have your timbers kiln dried to minimize splitting and checking and ready to accept a stain or paint, please allow extra time for processing.
Bolts, lag screws, split rings and shear plates, as well as custom made hardware are commonly used in heavy timber structures where the joint's strength must be greater than that which could be achieved with nails. These types of connectors should be corrosion-resistant or suitably coated to prevent corrosion and staining.
