It’s all about the timber for Grange

When it comes to fencing, Grange have it covered: from lap panels, picket fences and trellis to featheredge, closeboard and decorative fencing. Grange use FSC-Certified Timber which means it’s ethically sourced from sustainable forests. The timber is also pressure-treated and comes with a 20-year guarantee against wood rot.

Wood has a number of natural characteristics so when selecting the perfect piece for your garden its useful to be familiar with some of the nuances. Here’s some of them:

Knots and the natural grain of wood

Due to the nature of timber, wood grain and the number of visible kinds vary. Knots embedded in the wood are a common feature in timber based products.

Pressure treated wood

Pressure treatment is a process that forces chemical preservatives into the wood. As the timber is placed in a pressure chamber, the preservatives are forced into the wood. The preservatives help protect the wood from all outdoor elements. Green and white spots are common in pressure treated wood and can be brushed off easily.

Resin streaks

During storage and processing, wood changes in volume and thickness. One phenomenon of coniferous wood during this process is the emergence of resin to the surface. This is normal and can be corrected by scraping and careful removal with turpentine.

Colour variations

Each tree is unique. Its shape, colour and wood grain retain their uniqueness after processing. Wood varies in density, therefore, it does not uniformly absorb the chemical preservatives when pressure treated, resulting in colour variations. Over time, variations in colour will disappear when the wood is exposed to sunlight.
