Available clear or knotty mellow appearance and long lasting durability.
Also naturally durable with no need for preservative treatment clean and clear appearance – very similar to Oak – available in very long (6.0m) lengths.
All the above timbers have outstanding natural durability – they can all be left to weather to a silver grey finish or coated with a range of suitable finishes available from Sykes Timber.
