Timber Species

Our experienced team can custom-build your timber doors and timber windows using a variety of well-known timbers species.

Western Red Cedar

The majority of our joinery is constructed using Western Red Cedar due to its stability and durability.

Western Red Cedar

Cedar is a beautiful, versatile timber that is highly recommended for applications such as windows and doors, shutters, lining and cladding due its many qualities:

  • Dimensionally Stable (not prone to shrinkage or swelling)
  • Excellent Thermal Insulator
  • Fantastic Acoustic Properties
  • Resistant to Termites & Insect Attacks
  • Naturally Beautiful

Timber Colour

When you are choosing your timber, it is important to remember that you can personalise the colour and tone of the wood using different timber coatings and finishes.

The type of finish you choose can make a huge different to the look and appearance of the timber. For example, the pictures below all feature the same timber (Western Red Cedar) - the colour has simply been enhanced using different finishes to create a range of stunning looks.
