Unseasoned timber can have a moisture content approaching the maximum saturation level of 27%, when air-dried "in-stick" this can fall to 20-23%, and if kiln-dried the moisture level is brought down to 18-20%. Generally in a heated building, the moisture level can be 8-10%, and it is here, where the moisture level of timber is rapidly changed, that twisting, warping and splitting can occur. Timber will naturally shrink across it's section as it dries; The length is generally more stable. Splitting and checking can appear to be quite significant on larger section timbers, but has little reduction on the strength of the beam, and is allowed in the certification.
Sizes may be the usual timber Nominal size that the 75x300mm Building timber is machined from, with a finished size that is generally obtained; 12x3 Softwood sizes are generally ±5mm on thickness / ±10mm on width, ±50mm cross-cutting tolerance & there may be one splitter saw cut-edge; This is the size immediately after machining the timber, and does not take into account any movement later, caused by moisture movement into, or out of the Timber Joist. (Be aware: For a multitude of reasons, size and profile of timber may vary from batch to batch, so it is best to purchase all you need for a job in one go, rather than buying more at a later date.)
If any graded timber is cut, then this may affect the timber-joist grade rating, and may cut off the timber grade-stamp;
If Size, Pattern or Grading of the Timber Joist is important, then you need to check this with your Building Inspector before ordering the timber with us, and before commencing work. We cannot be held responsible for any variations in machined timber sizes, pattern or grading
