Fresh sawn structural oak or green oak has been part of our building industry for centuries. Renowned for it’s great strength and durability it is the natural choice for timber framed buildings especially where oak beams are required.
Structural green oak, when cut has a high moisture content and is therefore easier to cut and shape joints than air dried oak. Once constructed, an oak timber frame dries naturally and shrinks. With oak dowels to hold the joints, the beams and posts shrink and tighten around them. These tightening joints result in a structurally sound frame. We cut our fresh sawn oak beams to suit specific requirements at our on site joinery shop. We also supply oak sleepers for garden projects.
