Structural or Green Oak has been part of our building industry for centuries. Renowned for its great strength and durability it is the natural choice for timber framed buildings.
Green Oak retains more moisture so is easier to cut joints and shape than air dried Oak. Once constructed, an Oak timber frame will dry out naturally and shrink. This causes the joints to tighten to create a structurally sound frame. Oak dowels are used to hold the joints, and the posts and beams shrink and tighten around them. All of our fresh sawn Oak beams can be cut to suit your specific requirements.
