Our beam yard improvements mean over 2000 Oak beams in 3 levels of seasoning are now available to pick from for timber framing & carpentry . We recognise the need for better product information on dryness so we're mid process of re-listing with 3 categories, Fresh sawn beam: for 6 months from sawn date Part seasoned beam: from 7 - 24 months from sawn date Semi seasoned beam: from 25 months from sawn date. In this way the age of the sawn structural section corresponds to a level of drying / seasoning. For engineering calculations our structural timber is technically 'wet graded' as, due to section size, it cannot reach the moisture content required for 'dry graded'.
