What type of timber do you use and is it treated?

he majority of timber used by Taylor Lane is Scandinavian softwoods. We ensure that all of our timber suppliers source their materials from renewable resources and expertly managed forests.

It is important that all timber used in the structural shell is comprehensively treated against insect attack, general decay and complies with the requirements of the N.H.B.C. and the Building Regulations 1995. Timber used in different areas and applications within the structure will be treated with a different material. For example ground floor soleplates and cavity barriers will be treated with a strong material such as Tanalith, whilst studwork and floor joist timber with a water based treatment such as Vacsol.
