      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

      Just a short note of thanks, I received my order yesterday as planned. Derek was very helpful and cheery, as has everyone I spoke to in the company.
      A pleasure to work with you and 5 star service.

      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
