For Roofs & Structures
Structural timber is an often-unseen product that plays a very important role when building private homes, residential spaces, and commercial spaces too. Structural timber is often found in roofs and ceilings to give strength to the build and ensure that the roof has something on which to sit. Wood beams can also be used to bring strength and structure to windows and doorways too. Timber intended for structural use must be strength graded, to give a basic prediction of its structural performance and ensure it is at least strong enough for the highest expected load.
