Wood for Exteriors

As a natural material, timber is an attractive and logical choice for exterior structures such as fencing, cladding and decking.

Wood is easy to work into any size or shape, and provides a warm, organic aesthetic that will blend well with any outdoor space.

To ensure the correct levels of safety and longevity for exterior wood products, however, it is important that they are correctly specified, detailed, installed and maintained. This will make sure they provide the desired performance levels and service life expected by the user.

There are many wood products available from the timber supply chain that are specifically designed and treated for use outdoors and in contact with the ground.
