|Orlestone Oak mill and supply air-dried oak beams. Cut from our own oak timber, our beams are air dried for a minimum 3 years. This allows them to dry out naturally which reduces the risk of movement and shrinkage.
Air-dried beams offer good stability and are suitable for all kinds of interior construction, period restoration, barn conversions and the construction of conservatories or large scale window frames (as above). They are also the best choice for fireplace beams >
Air dried beams can show some drying splits along the timber length. Splitting can vary tremendously from beam to beam. Over time air dried beams will silver to a traditional oak timber colour.
Orlestone Oak are able to provide air dried oak beams to the length you require and to your joint and detailing specification.
