Structural Oak Beams
Is there any other building material which has had a greater influence on British and European architecture? Could Oak even claim to have shaped more lives and history than any other material? Maybe.
Structural Oak beams are miraculous, modern composite materials that match its load-bearing capabilities, but oak gives more:
- You can fall in love with oak beams in a home, they are beautiful
- You can feel the satisfaction of knowing you have locked CO2 into your home, reducing your impact on our planet
- You can create a medieval homage or a space-age experiment and both will look great
- You can recycle oak in 800 years time and it will still be useful
Nothing else on Earth comes close to claiming the title of the ultimate high-performance building material, structural Oak won that race a thousand years ago.
Now we have established that oak it the choice of the heart and the mind, you must choose where to source it. Please talk to experts, people who really understand oak, people who go to the forests and dig holes to understand the soil that the trees grew in, it makes a difference. People who have invested in saws so they can cut your beams from trees. People who believe doing it properly matters, Timberpride.

Green Oak Beams
Green beams are cut to order so there is no waste for the you to consider even with non-standard sections, the colour is uniform and the drying splits have not started to develop. They are heavier (80% moisture content), but they are much easier to cut joints into as they are not as hard as seasoned beams.
Structurally there is no difference between seasoned and green, but visually the differance can be huge.
British Oak Logs
Timberpride’s green oak is cut from British logs, sourced from managed woodland all around the UK.
Inspected and selected by Alec, our internal TRADA Grader, and brought back to the Sawmill here in Tetbury, for milling on our in house band saw.
