About Our Company
All our oak is English and French. We make sure we only select from sustainable forrestry managed sources for the air dried oak, and are caruful to hand pick each beam. As well as our yard in Sussex we have an acre sawmill in France where we hold a large amount of stock.
Reclaimed oak has been used before. That is the simple answer, but there is also the age, character and colour of the oak. Some of our reclaimed oak beams and flooring can be in excess of 500 years old. As oak ages it toughens and darkens in colour, giving that beautiful dark oak look. Air dried oak has been sawn and left to dry naturally, this way it does most of its settling of its own accord so minimises movement when used. Air dried oak can vary in colour as to the age of the beam.
At Traditional oak and timber company we can fabricate most sizes of oak frame structures, from oak porches to full house frames. We offer full design drawings when a frame is being fabricated. We offer a full on site meeting and measurement service to offer any suggestions and ideas that could enhance your project.
