English Oak Beams to Buy On Line
English Oak beams are structurally sound and are equivalent to the European QP1 grade. They are available both planed and sawn to your requirements. Common uses for English Oak beams are:
These beams are fresh sawn when supplied so they will shrink slightly in the width and thickness and the surface will split and crack over time.
We source English Oak from local, well managed, sawmills in order to make sure production is sustainable. There is currently a large push to increase forest land in Britain and sustainable harvesting is the key to that.
The timber is available in the following sizes online:
If you require sizes outside of those limits please call us, we may be able to source it from English Oak or a comparable species.
Difference between a Sawn and Planed Finish
A sawn finish leaves saw marks in the timber and the edges are left with a rough feeling to them. There is also a 5mm tolerance either way for the section sizes. A Planed finish leaves a smoother surface and a squarer section.
When working with the beams, if you are working from centre lines, then a sawn finish is more than suitable. If you need the beam to be square, then a planed finish will be more suitable. Our Oak Trusses, Gazebos and Pergolas are all planed.
Treating Your Beams
Timber can be left untreated, if you would like to treat it though, the best people to speak to are wood finishes direct. They will give you option for protecting your timber.
Blue Stain and tannings
Sometimes Oak can be supplied with a blue stain on the timber, this is where it has reacted with the metal from the saw. You can remove this by applying Oxalic acid to the timber or a light sanding.
The same Oxalic method can be used to remove any tannins that leak out of the Oak onto other surfaces such as slabs and walls. We do recommend testing the acid in a small discreet area first to make sure you don’t ruin the surface.
Please note it is standard industry practice to supply timber slightly overlength so the Oak beam can to be cut down on site.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long do our deliveries take?
We get the very best timber selected for your list and cut directly at UK sawmills so deliveries usually take place around 14 to 17 working days after you place your order.
Costs of delivery
We base our delivery costs on where you're located. Make sure that you check out our
delivery costs page
Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
