Timber merchants now often sell their products online and have their own website to sell their goods. If you want to buy timber online, you need to make sure it is going to meet your expectations. Here are some of the things to look out for that will indicate quality:
- Custom milling services. Cutting the timber down to size for you indicates that they have their own timber mill and can offer bespoke services.
- Wooden sleepers. Sleepers are versatile pieces of wood that can be used for anything around the home. From furniture to ceiling beams, sleepers can do it all. Check what the sleepers are made out of and where they have been sourced.
- Wood that has been sourced sustainably. Read about their sustainability policies and find out where the wood being sold has come from. If the timber merchant has their own timber growing supplies, this is even better.
