Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Some species of timber will weather quicker than others. We can offer an OSMO UV Protector which will give the most protection against the sun. Ask us for more information and costs

Normally the lead times if you aren’t receiving treatment is 7-14 days upon placing an order. If your cladding is being sent to have treatment factory applied this could take a further 3-4 weeks

The 2 popular profiles we are constantly machining are the WB12 (vertically fitted) and WB10 (both vertical and horizontally fitted) because they offer a secret fixing. The WB12 can also be machined with a centre and offset groove which gives a mixed width illusion

Of course, we think its the best way to make sure you pick the perfect product for your project by seeing the species and profiles up close. See our contact page for our address

Economic, attractive and very durable. Superb environmental credentials and insulation properties. Available in a wide variety of densities, colours, strengths & sizes. Wood is a waste efficient and sustainable building material. To name but a few reasons

Testimonials

Thank you – The help you gave us was truly amazing – you said yes to what seemed an impossible request in a heartbeat and what a difference it made – The house looked beautiful and we’re all so proud of what everyone achieved – the family were utterly overwhelmed by the sheer force of goodwill that everyone showed them

Gordon Whistance, In House Designer | BBC DIY SOS
It was an easy choice to move to using Glenalmond Timber’s floor joist system. It gives an improved specification for many aspects of the build, including acoustics, ease of installation, lack of bounce in the floor as well of course as cost effectiveness. A great all-round product, it’s a lot more than just a joist and the level of service from Fraser has been a joy. Whenever you deal with people such as that, the business process becomes a pleasure
Steven Streets, Technical Manager | Muir Group

The larch cladding we got from you is outstanding. We absolutely love the smooth riven effect. Thanks again for supplying the cladding

Adam Turner, Happy Customer

Angus MacDonald, Morgan Sindall
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for my order. We received it this morning and I am very impressed with the quality of the cladding and also how well it was all packaged. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who may be looking for cladding in the future.
Steve Holyland, Happy Customer
Fraser we are really happy with the finish and look. Actually the Abodo cladding is main thing people remark and compliment about the house, we’ve certainly been spreading the word about you guys and the Abodo cladding.
