FAQ: What are the finish options for beams?
Our finish options include S4S smooth planed, resawn, hand-hewn, and reclaimed imitation. Check out our photo gallery for examples of each type and a detailed explanation of each type can be read on our blog.
FAQ: Are your timbers green or dry?
We only supply kiln-dried timber beams. All of our beams are guaranteed to have 17% moisture content or less. Green timbers have a risk of warping, moving, or twisting before or after install so we do not recommend them for most projects.
FAQ: should I care about what grade my beams are?
Absolutely! There are many variables that go into grading a timber. A professional log scaler will grade a timber based on knot size and frequency, pitch pockets, slope of grain, and more. This grading is critical for structural applications and makes a noticeable difference in the look and quality of decorative projects. We typically only work with timbers that have a grade of #1 or structural select.
