Our Selection of Oak Beams
Air Dried Oak Beams
Air dried oak or semi seasoned oak is green oak that has been cut to size and left to dry naturally. As the beams are left to dry naturally, they do most of their shrinkage under no pressure, minimising movement when finished.
Reclaimed Oak Beams
Most of our beams are English and French and reclaimed from farmhouses, churches and barns. Our stock of reclaimed oak beams is one of the best in the country with small pieces to 11 meter beams.
Hollowed Out Oak Beams
Hollowed oak beams fall into two main categories – L and U-shaped.
Tradoak can offer advice on the best way to give your project the look of an authentic structural beam.
Structural Oak Beams
Historically, oak was chosen as a building material because it becomes harder and stronger over time. Oak is a high-density wood that will never shrink lengthwise and is structurally remarkably strong.
Why Work With Us
Traditional Oak and Timber is a small family-run business located in East Sussex. Our founder, Neil, sources all our wood himself from across Europe. We use traditional drying methods and work very closely with architects, structural engineers, our local community and you to make sure every project is a success.
Some Of Our Work
How much does the oak cost?
Our costing is straightforward. Firstly, all the oak supplied is calculated by volume and priced per cubic foot. Then, any additional work is costed per process, depending on what you require, eg, cleaning, sanding, shaping, waxing, plus VAT.
When do I have to pay?
For small items, it is usual to pay the full amount before any work begins, as each piece is bespoke, and once the timber is cut, it is not always possible to reuse it for anyone else. For larger projects, such as oak frames, a deposit is taken and the final balance is paid strictly upon practical completion.
Do you allow personal visits to the yard?
We welcome personal visits, when we can show you around, and get a clear understanding of your requirements, and give you plenty of advice if you are unsure about anything.
