We’re all back to work after a much needed break over the Christmas holidays, so if you are starting work on a construction or renovation project, why not come to us here at Mike England Timber. We stock a wide range of quality timber products suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Our specialist stock features the most reliable timber treatments and timber coatings, aimed at extending the life span of your structure.
Treating indoor applications such as frame work can be worthwhile, especially in older properties where timber framework plays a pivotal role in the structure. In the worst case scenario dampness can lead to problems with structural timbers, making repairs costly for the home owner. Timber treatments and timber coatings are therefore essential to prevent dry or wet from occurring.
Timber used for outdoor applications is constantly battling the elements, and so timber treatments are more important than ever. We have read recently how Cheshire Council have been given the green light for a major conservation scheme, aimed at improving a number of old timber framed buildings in Northwich town centre. The scheme which is funded by a number of backers, including the Heritage Lottery Fund is said to be costing an estimated £1.418m.
The scheme will ensure that much need maintenance work is carried out on the town centres’ buildings, many of which date back to the late 18th and early 19th centuries. With scheduled work thought to include, treating, repairing and replacing the older timber. It has also been reported that the project will fund a number of workshops, aimed at giving local residents an insight into the management and maintenance of the timber framed buildings.
Here at Mike England Timber we know the importance of applying timber treatments and timber coatings to ensure the longevity of an application. Our timber treatments include Tanalith®, Tanatone® and Vacsol®, as well as industrial coatings from Sikkens.
