ABOUT CARLTON BEAMS
At Carlton Wood Mill, we offer a variety of finishes and sizes of English oak beams to suit all your needs.
We deliver to anywhere in the UK mainland. All our beams are milled to order, once milled they are kiln dried this can take up to 2 weeks depending on your dimensions. Please be aware that we cannot post on public holidays or weekends. If you need your beams urgently, please get in touch and we will try our best to help you.
Please note, oak is a natural product and each piece may be different in appearance and slightly in colour. Our beams may contain cracks, splits and pin holes, this is perfectly natural and part of the beauty of this product. We air dry our beams in the Yorkshire climate, as such, it is not unusual for the oak to season and some additional movement may occur. For finished beams we normally finish 3x150mm sides and the ends, leaving one side not sanded/finished as this will be the back. These aspects should and will not be considered as defects.
We would recommend that if the beams are going to be situated above a log burner or other source of intense heat, that the heat is gradually increased steadily over a period of weeks for best results.
