Sometimes we want to make the house have a feeling of warmth in the jungle or even the feeling you would call wild, at this time wood comes into action. Oak beams come into work when we want to have items that will last us a long time. To get the perfect type of beam to use then we need to put in mind the place we want to use it in. The same kind of oak wood you use in your living room will not look or be the same as the type you will use on the worktops in your kitchen.
After a given period because of the conditions present in this areas then the area then the appearance of the old oak will have changed from the one that was new. The conditions that the timber will be submitted to will stick to it. To make sure that the changes that have taken place in the timber are not visible then it is necessary to make sure that the oak is maintained and given the correct and right treatment at all times. For all this to work out in the correct way then the oak must first be dried in the correct way.
The drying process has to start immediately the oak is fell. To get a real trunk alone then it is a must to slash off the branches. Other trees will grow to a height of up to 40 meters and because this is too high to use then they should be cut into two. The way we choose to dry the timber will be very important so as to make sure that no cracks form on the wood. Cracks are to be avoided as they cannot be used in the worktops.
At the same time the oak beams prices will defer from one seller to another in the UK. Even if you want a large number of poles or a small number of poles in maybe to put above you water poles or just a limited number in your garden. All this can be availed depending on where the order is made, and the time the order is made. Sellers can also cut fresh sawn oak beams as per the order.
Freshly sawn oak beams, also known as ‘green oak’ beams, start seasoning as soon as they are fell. Changes in color and the appearance of cracks and splits will occur during this drying process. At the rate of one inch per year the green oak tree will take approximately five year to fully dry up for proper use. If your project requires green oak beams then even those can be found from this sellers.
