Stephane Roux Ltd holds a stock of seasoned oak beams, sleepers and oak waney edge boards. These are suitable for a wide range of uses.
Seasoned oak beams should be used when mouvement needs to kept to a minimum. Oak lintels built into masonry should always be seasoned. It’s also wise to use seasoned beams for mantelpieces.
Seasoned oak beams contain drying splits and shakes developed during the seasoning process. On larger sections these can be quite substantial. Providing the beam is structurally sound these are not considered a defect and rather part of the character.
For direct glazing we hold a stock of seasoned 27mm and 41mm oak joinery grade waney edge boards. Also in stock are seasoned 65mm rustic oak curved slabs.
