How our quality carcassing timber can help cut loft conversion costs

June 17, 2016

Are you fed up with jobs overrunning due to substandard carcassing timber? Distortion and inexact dimensions are just two of the many issues that can prolong a job and cost you money.

When it comes to poor quality carcassing timber, the whole project can run over. Labour can be extended, you may have to reschedule later stages of the project and the job will generally end up costing you more money.

At Champion Timber we do everything we can to manufacture the highest quality carcassing timber. Without inconsistencies, our treated timber will not only support your schedule but also protect your wallet.

Structurally graded to C24 as standard

In contrast to other timber merchants, all of our carcassing timber comes structurally graded to C24, as standard. This means you will be receiving the highest quality timber at no extra cost.

Reduce your costs with carcassing timber from Champion

Finding a company that will have the right quality, length and sections of carcassing timber available can be both time consuming and complicated. This struggle is eliminated when you choose Champion Timber. We will ensure that we have the section and length that you need, in stock and graded to C24.

The high quality of our timber and its eased edges both work towards reducing time on the build. All these things combined work towards a seamless and stress-free build by reducing the margin for error.

Kiln dried and treated to last longer

Timber at Champion is manufactured to withstand the natural elements and last a long time. All our timber is kiln dried and treated before it reaches the shop floor.

The controlled temperatures, humidity and airflow in kiln drying allows timber to dry consistently, resulting in a more uniform product. All our carcassing timber has been kiln dried to ensure the longest lifetime possible. There are many benefits of kiln drying timber besides from just the uniformity, here a few examples:

  • Reduced future shrinkage of timber
  • Lighter and stronger
  • Less chance of fissures, splits and bowing
  • Less chance of fungus and will not corrode fixings
