Traditional Beams are the only supplier in the UK providing such a comprehensive range of oak beams. Whether you’re looking for a small oak fireplace beam or large quantity of structural oak beams for a restoration project, we’re confident we can provide the perfect solution for you.
We air dry our beams for 1-3 years and we can supply them in a number of forms. Oak beams develop cracks and splits which is a natural part of the drying process. Knots are also another distinguishing feature that add to the natural rustic charm.
Sawn oak beams have a dark and weathered appearance that can vary depending on where the beam is positioned in the pack.
Planed oak beams are far lighter in colour once the weathered surface is removed. The surface may also only need a light hand sand and is practically ready to apply finish.
We are of course one of the UK’s leading suppliers of oak fireplace beams. We offer a truly comprehensive range of fully finished beams suitable for installation above your wood burning stove.
As fresh sawn oak beams start drying as soon as they are milled, it is uncommon we stock green oak beams however we still have access to an extensive stock through our network of sawmill partners.
