Our price list details all our available sizes. Most of our timbers are cut to modern metric sizes but we still list the closest imperial size and our staff can still speak ‘old school’. Almost all are treated for ground contact (UC4) but some are only are treated for above ground use these are marked with *
Effective from the 1st of October 2019 we will be removing our 10-year warranty from all our timber rails. All our posts will still be guaranteed for 10 years providing T&C’s are adhered too.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly and we have tried very hard to avoid it. Saw mills are no longer willing to back up their treatments with a warranty. This has been an ongoing issue for the whole timber industry. Most merchants only have their rails treated for above ground use (UC3) Traditionally we have always had Diamond’s saw mill treat all our rails for ground contact (UC4). Diamond’s saw mill cannot meet the current demands we have for timber and we have had to bring new mills on board. The new mills selected are some of the best in the country and we have taken great care in making these recent decisions however they too will only offer UC3 treatment.
UC3 treatment is more than adequate for rails & boards not in contact with the ground. We will continue to keep many of our boards that we know are used for edging and kick boards as UC4 from Diamond’s saw mill. We will always strive to provide the best service and product but it has finally come to a head and if we wish to continue to be able to offer a good availability of timber this is the route we now have to take.
