Aesthetically enhancing a building's aspects
Timber cladding has become increasingly popular as a wall covering both internally and externally with profiles to suit both modern and traditional homes. A wide variety of timber species are available to suit any application.
Western Red Cedar - an ideal material for internal and external use, Western Red Cedar is naturally resistant to decay and insect attack. Colours vary from shades of light brown to dark red-brown; if left untreated Cedar will season to an attractive silver grey. Being a light weight softwood with a high proportion of air space also gives Cedar good thermal properties and a low shrinkage factor. To avoid discolouration and corrosion it is advisable to use stainless steel fixings.
Siberian Larch - Siberian Larch is slow growing, creating a durable dense softwood varying from reddish brown to yellow orange in colour. It offers an attractive cladding and good value for money. Due to its high density, Larch wood maintains high wear resistance and is none corrosive.
European Redwood - the most cost effective species for timber cladding; when fully treated it can be used both internally and externally for an attractive dressed cladding look. V jointed cladding fitted neatly gives a good clean look for either a modern or classic feel.
American White Oak - popular for internal cladding solutions, Oak V joined cladding can add a warm feel to any home. Whether you are cladding a feature wall or covering an unsightly area, Oak can add an elegant finish.
Skirting & Mouldings
Moulding designs from the traditional and heritage, to classic, contemporary and modern
Arbor timber has invested in up to date machinery and tooling to enable us to quickly and accurately prepare small and medium quantities of bespoke moulding profiles such as skirting board, architrave and dado rail, both in Hardwood and Softwood. As well as having a range of set profile cutters we can also match historical designs, either from a surviving piece or from a scale template.
We can also produce window and door section profiles for you to renovate existing frames and beads.
Traditional building methods require quality of product and skill
European Green Oak is popular in construction, from Oak beams, fire surrounds and trusses to outdoor buildings. Arbor has been supplying green and air dried Oak for restoration and new buildings for many years. Using our expertise we ensure the right grade of Oak is used for the job in hand. We stock seasoned beam grade oak for use as mantle pieces, shelves and other decorative beams, which can be left rough or planed smooth. These will naturally dry out and open up (shake) creating an elegant rustic look. We can also design, supply and fit Oak trusses and girder covers.
