Should you require it, our graders are full trained to visually grade both temperate and tropical hardwood timber to meet the requirements of BS:5756(2007).

Home grown timber, was supplied by us for the magnificent restoration of Abbey Barn in Glastonbury. Take a look at Inn The Park, St James’ Park in London which was completed with Whitmore’s supplied oak beams.

Our constructional timber is used in building restoration, new construction projects, flooring, sea defences, rivers, canals, as well as boatbuilding, fencing and gates. We stock an extensive range of construction sizes, in lengths up to 50 ft suitable for Churches, Inns, and country houses.
