Why should I get my beams waxed?2018-12-05T12:02:06+01:00

After years of being suffocated by surface coatings beams naturally obtain a dry look. The wax we manufacture resolves this by conditioning the timber, which nourishes it back a really healthy state. The wax is formed into a mousse which is colourless when applied. This will not affect the colouration of the natural wood, but only enriched it. This also helps seal in the preservative if the beams have been treated.

Will I have to re treat my timbers?2018-12-05T12:01:45+01:00

We offer 10, 20, and 30 year guaranteed with our treatments, as long as another damp issue has not recurred. Moisture in the beams can cause other beetles and fungi to thrive other than the ones that have been treated, as well as this is can remove all preservatives that are in the beam, inevitably making you have to retreat them.
