Why Source Your Timber From Timber Merchants?

Let’s talk timber merchants. You’ve probably heard of us before — we’re specialist suppliers of timber and wood-based products, including timber for construction, flooring, cladding, decking, fencing and more. Basically, if it’s made of wood, a timber merchant is likely to stock it.

Now, you might be thinking, “why bother going to a specialist timber merchant when I can just pop down to B&Q?”

Oh, you misguided soul. There are so many reasons why sourcing your timber from a proper timber merchant is better than your local DIY store. Don’t believe us? Read on to make sure you get the best timber for your project.

What are the benefits of buying from timber merchants instead of DIY stores?

Timber merchants have a much wider selection of timber products than your typical DIY store. Try popping down to your local B&Q and asking for a highly specific and unusual timber type and watch as the employee scratches their head in confusion. At a timber merchant, you’ll find the exact type of timber you need for your project, instead of just a general-purpose one. You’ll also get a wider range of grades and sizes, allowing you to pick the perfect piece for the job.

Another benefit of using a timber merchant is the quality of the timber they sell. Local timber merchants will have a better understanding of the different types of timber and their uses, so they can advise you on which type of wood is best for your specific project. Typically, the timber that they sell is of a higher quality than what you would find at a DIY store, as they source their timber from reputable suppliers.

And, of course, one of the biggest benefits of using a timber merchant is the personalised (and friendly!) service they offer. Us timber merchants are experts in our field and passionate about timber. When you visit a timber merchant, you’ll get professional advice and guidance on everything from choosing the right timber for your project to the best way to treat and maintain it. They can also cut your timber to size, saving you time and effort. You won’t get that level of service from your local B&Q!
