Timber and Sheet Materials
Our main product lines are timber and sheet materials; softwood carcassing in particular. Our business was established in 1965 as a reclaimed timber merchant selling second hand goods, mainly collected from Plymouth docks and parts of London. It is this history that has helped us become North Cornwall's premier supplier of softwood timber for construction, roofing, fencing, landscaping and cladding. We currently stock approximately 65,000 metres of timber products.
Our Managing Director Mike, also our head buyer for these products, has personally been buying and selling timber and plywood for nearly 40 years. This means we have an array of contacts all over the UK which gives us a competitive edge in sourcing the right timber at the right price.
Carcassing timbers, CLS and battens are bought directly from a network of suppliers who import timber from Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. We sell these products to developers, timber frame erectors and builders alike. Our homegrown fencing and landscaping products are sourced straight from some of the largest sawmills and timber harvesting companies in the UK.
Our buying methods mean we can offer exceptional discounts for those looking to purchase in bulk, but we’re pleased to sell smaller amounts at fair prices too. The majority of our timber products including PSEs, skirtings and architraves, are sold by the metre so if you require just one or two metres to do a very small job, that's no problem: we're glad to help.
We sell all the normal sheet materials you’d expect to find in any reputable merchant, such as: exterior grade hardwood and softwood plywood, OSB, MDF and flooring grade chipboards. Special order items within this product category include marine plywood, birch faced plywood, veneered sheets, and numerous claddings and PSEs manufactured from timbers like cedar and larch.
