3" Building Timber
Softwood 3" Building Timber - (75mm Nominal) Carcassing Timber - Rough-Sawn or "Regularised":
In general we are now sourcing this timber as a high quality Home-grown whitewood, some now being regularised Easi-edge - (semi-planed with eased corners), and graded to SSC16 (or occasionally SSC24) certification, and some as rough-sawn timber; It is generally Grade-Stamped for inspection by your Building Inspector, so suitable as joists, rafters and building timber.
Normal lengths are 3.0, 3.6, 4.2 & 4.8 metres;
We keep a good selection of larger sized timbers in stock, up to 9" / 225mm in the Easi-Edge and 12" / 300mm in a German unsorted graded Whitewood Fine-Sawn Carcassing timber; We can also source larger sizes and lengths to order.

Most sizes of 75mm graded-carcassing timber are kiln-dried; Unseasoned 75mm 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, when the moisture level of timber is rapidly changed, that twisting, warping and splitting can occur.
We keep tilt-fillet in stock and can cut firring pieces to size for roofing work.
Carcassing Timber is a natural product - variations in knots, colour, grain and surface-checking should be expected - They are not defects.
Sizes are the usual timber nominal size that the Buildng Timber is machined from, with a finished size that is generally obtained;
(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, and tell us before ordering the timber,
and before commencing work. We cannot be held responsible for any variations in Carcassing Timber sizes, pattern or grading.)
