An article shortly to be published in Self-Builder magazine is a good example of the publicity received by our hardwood decking, oak flooring and oak framed building ranges.

Whether you require an entire building or just a finishing touch, the range of products and services available from Round Wood of Mayfield will appeal, particularly if you are developing to a high specification.
Oak Framed Cricket Pavilion featuring hardwood decking, oak flooring and joinery.
The company consists of several strands that all adhere to traditional crafting techniques and the supply of premium materials. This quality doesn’t cost the earth and is more than worth the investment given the years of service it will underpin.
Round Wood’s involvement in your development can vary from that of a trusted product supplier, if you simply require hardwood decking or flooring, to full build management if you are looking to erect an Oak Frame.
The team behind their ‘Oak Framed Building’ division has planned, erected and finished thousands of projects over the last 20 years. These have included buildings typically associated with oak framing such as garages, gazebos, garden rooms and offices, but also larger scale undertakings such as houses.
One such development offers almost 600 square metres of floor space set across four levels. The structural frame comprises beams of over a foot wide and is topped by impressive bespoke finials that stand in excess of 7 feet.
The house also features flooring supplied through the ‘Quality Oak & Decking Products’ strand at Round Wood. In line with their commitment to high end products only the most durable and attractive hardwood floor boards are offered, including solid and engineered oak and walnut.
The decking they supply is also cut from the most durable species of timber. Toughest of all is Ipe, a South American hardwood that will last over 100 years without treatment. Others include Balau, Garapa and Oak, all of which are far more durable than the softwood equivalents available at standard timber merchants.
Hardwood decking boards also hold a considerable advantage when it comes to catching the eye. They feature beautiful grain swirl and deep, rich colouration that can vary widely in some species. This can look really striking on a large deck, particularly if the boards are finished with hidden fastenings that cut out the need for unsightly face screws.
Whilst decking and flooring is provided on a supply only basis by Round Wood, they do have recommended fitters and are always on hand to lend advice. Their oak frames can also be purchased on this basis if you have your own works team.
The most recent project where these elements have been combined was for the construction of a new pavilion for Mayfield Cricket Club. This project was led from inception to the completion of a building that stood 21 metres wide, 19 metres deep and 7.5 metres tall. In addition to decking and flooring it also included oak joinery supplied by Round Wood, including 5 sets of bi-fold doors, 2 sets of garage doors, 3 standard doors and 9 windows.
Through its sister company, Round Wood also supplies ‘Home & Garden Features’. These tend to have a reclamation style focus and include cast iron statues, urns and benches and wrought iron furniture sets. Recently they have also developed a range of garden planters. These are crafted in a variety of materials and designs, including faux lead jumbo boxes, troughs and cylinders.
