Most Machined Joinery Timbers are kiln-dried - where 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. What can be done is to leave the timber in a room to acclimatise in a stack, to stop the twisting and cupping, and shuffle the boards occasionally so that they dry out slowly and evenly, to help minimise any movement/twisting and surface checking/splitting that occurs naturally with changes in moisture content.
Timber is a natural product - variations in knots, colour and grain should be expected - They are not defects.
Sizes may be the usual timber nominal size that the Planed Timber PSE is machined from, with a finished size that is generally obtained; Planed PSE sizes are generally ± 1mm on thickness / ± 4mm on width, ± 20mm cross-cutting tolerance and there may be splitter saw cut-edges; This is the size immediately after machining the PSE Section, and does not take into account any movement later, caused by moisture movement into, or out of the Planed Timber. ( Be aware: For many reasons, size and profile of PSE 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. )
Planed Softwood needs suitable external treatment, finishing and maintenance for exterior use. External use is at your own risk - unless we have had the timber specifically vacuum-treated for you, with a guarantee certificate.
- JAS Timber cannot be held responsible for any variations in machined Timber PSE sizes, pattern, construction, grading, moisture-content, treatment, certification, knots, colour or grain.
