Customer Photos!

23 August 2019

Our customers have been very busy recently, sending us lovely photos of our products in their new homes – here is a first batch for you to look, including oak framed buildings and hardwood decking.

 

An excellent image sent in by a very happy customer who purchased our Mischievous Meerkat as a unique birthday present for her partner. This statue is full of character and looks wonderful next to their colourful flower beds.

 

We love this shot of our adorable Puppy Dog statue making friends. This feature adds a warm and welcoming feel to any outdoor space.

 

 

 

 

This customer purchased a 2-Bay garage from our Chippy range and has found it to be the perfect addition to their home.

 

These structures are ideal for those looking to gain some extra storage or off-road parking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Captured by a drone, this combination building is impressive yet practical and has provided the client with both a summer house and garage that is built to last.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  These garden features have created the perfect spot for our customers to sit and enjoy Summer evenings in the garden. They found that their Howling Wolf statue looks particularly striking next to the flames from their handy fire pit.

 

Stunning photos of our largest Mild Steel Fire Pit. These burners are ideal for any event, especially if you’re looking to entertain guests and bring everyone together.

When you have a large space to work with, the benefits of our 1.2m size bowl are endless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 A brilliant example of what can be achieved using high quality, durable deck boards from our traditional Oak selection.

These boards blend beautifully into any outdoor space as they are extremely complimentary to their surroundings and will provide years of service. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were thrilled to receive these images which show the eye-catching and contemporary look created by our smooth Balau decking.

The beautiful colouration offered by the boards is highly sought after due to the attractive, finishing effect it has on a garden/landscape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 One of our favourite types of customer photos to receive are those that show the flower pots from our vast range, all planted up. Our selection of Terracini planters are perfect for Summer gardening as they make a subtle addition to any garden courtesy of their neutral Terracotta colour.

  

A fantastic use of our Clayfibre Chelsea Box planters. Not only have they added that finishing touch to the customers porch, they have also created an attractive front entrance for their home.

 

If you’re satisfied with your purchase from Round Wood, please let us know! Customer photos are greatly appreciated and we love sharing them with our followers/readers.

NEW Thermory Brushed Spruce Cladding - Drift Collection

20 August 2019

The first in the Thermory® rebel collection, Drift unleashes the look of reclaimed wood but without the unknowns. Unrivalled in durability and rot-resistance these unique boards give a naturalistic and washed ashore vibe. With both internal and external cladding available it really is possible to find contemporary coloured cladding that best suits your needs and style.

Cut from Picea Abies Spruce, treated without chemicals, and finished with a multi-layer Water-based acrylic Drift finish, these Eco-friendly boards have outstanding durability with a fantastic price tag to match.

Just £7.50 per linear meter! (ex. VAT)

 

About Thermory

Thermory® only use high-quality spruce for their cladding boards, sourced from well-managed forests in Finland and Russia where good growing conditions and strict drying standards are enforced.

The Drift collection has been subjected to ‘intense’ thermo-treatment’, which heats and steams materials up to a maximum temperature of 215°C, ensuring maximum stability and a dark and rich colouring throughout the timber. This Eco-friendly and chemical-free process also ensures a low moisture content, removes remaining resin, reduces splitting, reinforces the timber and improves durability against decay. 

The end result is the transformation of responsibly harvested and rapid growing spruce, a softwood, into the perfect cladding material with class 1 durability credentials making it equal to the hardwoods.

 

Product Information

Each piece of timber board from the Brushed Spruce Drift collection is treated with fungicide to stop fungal growth between layers of tint and each backboard is oiled. In addition to oiling each board has a tongue and groove profile to ensure a flush finish against any surface.

 

Fitting

Each board can be fitted using stainless steel nails or screws, and to avoid moisture accumulation, sufficient airflow is needed behind the boards. For very wet areas it is optional to use 1 mm spacers between the timbers.

 

Maintenance - External Cladding

Like all timbers, Thermo-treated boards for external use will begin to gently weather once installed. Drift finish, however, is estimated to last between 3 to 5 years without any major alteration in appearance. It is to be expected that surface hairline cracks may appear in the boards, this is a natural occurrence in timbers installed for external use.

 

Key Features

Some features of the interior and external cladding boards to note are; its consistent appearance, unique colouring, outstanding grain detailing, dependable stability, rot-resistance, significantly reduced moisture absorbency and, perhaps most noteworthy of all its multi-layered water-based acrylic Drift finish.

 

Colour Variants

Platinum & Black Pearl are two colour variants available in Round Wood’s external range. Both measuring at 175 mm face. Round Wood also has four colour variations in their interior range; Sandy Pearl, Smoked Brandy, Gunpowder & Silver Storm also measuring at 175 mm face.

 

 

To discuss your cladding requirements contact a member of Round Wood's timber team by calling 01435 867 072, sending an email to sales@roundwood.com or visiting us in Newick Lane, Mayfield, East Sussex.

Themory Pine Cladding

25 July 2019

Our Thermory® Pine Cladding was recently used in a local project to stunning effect.

We were approached by a client looking for a simple, yet eye-catching method of cladding their contemporary property.

They were aware we had an extensive range of profiles so were seeking advice on the best solution. After hearing about the eco-friendly Thermory® collection we distribute in the UK, they selected pine cladding in a profile (C7J) that clips on to a simple substructure.

Thermory® sub structure battens feature a pre-installed hidden fastening that easily clips into the pre-machined grooves on the reverse of the chosen boards. As with all of Thermory's products, their pine C7J cladding boards have been thermo-treated; a chemical-free kilning process that ensures durability and rich colours.

Thermory® Pine cladding is available in several profiles which match the different Thermory® clip systems.

Round Wood planters help brighten Waitrose

18 July 2019

Round Wood of Mayfield recently helped dress a Sainsburys and Waitrose with landscape planters as part of the Brighter Heathfield initiative.

The non-profit organisation Brighter Heathfield Volunteers has worked tirelessly for 2 years to make the town of Heathfield a prime example of how a little TLC really does go a long way. Committee member Sue Young has, with her fellow devoted volunteers, come together to achieve Brighter Heathfield’s primary objective; “to clear litter and improve Heathfield”.

Round Wood, based on Newick Lane just outside the town, recently offered to help the initiative by supplying a selection of planters for the village from their extensive range, which includes fibrestone, clayfibre, terracotta and polystone pots.

The Brighter Heathfield Volunteers meet once a week outside of their local co-op at 10.00 am to discuss that week’s goals. Whether it is litter picking, clearing gutters or giving a permitted garden area some attention, everyone can get their hands dirty.  

 

 

Like all non-profit organisations, it is the sense of community, achievement and love for the cause that allows the Brighter Heathfield Volunteers to make a difference. Brighter Heathfield volunteers is a welcoming and well-oiled machine, Committee members provide the required equipment to the group of volunteers and everyone gets stuck in.

This community effort is really paying off and Sue can do nothing but sing the praises of those involved and those recognising and respecting the work they have achieved “Very sincere thanks must go to the Parish Council for grant funding, various other groups who have made generous donations, shops and premises who have given water, our jacket sponsors and Round Wood of Mayfield”

 

 

One of the biggest challenges Brighter Heathfield Volunteers face is how to make the most of communal areas with a small budget. This is where Round Wood of Mayfield was able to step in and offer their support. Round Wood have donated three beautiful Fiberstone trough planters which have found their new homes outside the local Sainsbury’s and Waitrose.

The Fibrestone Contemporary Trough Planters were selected in a classic yet contemporary grey to complement both supermarket brands.

 

Fibrestone is an ideal material for planters. Whilst it offers the durability of fibreglass, Fibrestone still holds a solid and heavy feel, provided by the stone powder mixed into the composite. Along with being durable, these planters are low maintenance making them an excellent choice for commercial use, with the added bonus of being a fraction of the cost of lead equivalents.

 

These 1m planters are UV and frost protected allowing Brighter Heathfield Volunteers to keep the local area bright and cheery all year round.

 

Sue said of the planters: “They have really made a difference to the areas outside of Waitrose and Sainsburys. The grey gives a crisp contemporary look that contrasts well with the store colours and plants that were used."

All you need to know about Balau decking

4 July 2019

What is Balau Timber?

Balau is a native Asian wood, where, given its durability, it is widely used within the construction industry. Over recent years it has significantly increased in popularity in both Europe and America, with high-end customers recognising the attributes that make it particularly suitable for use as garden decking.

 

Renowned for its colouration, Balau boards tend to range from light to dark brown. When the different shades are fitted together, an impressive, eye-catching, rich, dark and unique deck is achieved, especially when wet (perfect for an English summer). Due to this beautiful colouration, Balau hardwood decking finishes any garden or landscape perfectly.

 

Balau may contain some small microscopic holes called Pinworm holes. These are not a defect in the boards, but a natural occurrence called Pinworm, which is allowed for in industry guidelines. Pinworm is not detrimental to the structure of the striking timber.

 

  

How do I protect my Balau decking?

Some companies pre-finish their decking timber before selling, however, Round Wood believes in keeping everything as natural as possible. 

There are many ways to protect and finish your decking and depending on how you want your decking to look once complete, some can be considered to be more advantageous than others.

 

Balau decking can be left untreated to weather down over time, or, can be treated with penetrating oils. Treatex, which is also available at Round Wood, is an exterior wood finish that can slow the ageing process of your decking boards. This particular decking oil is made on a base of natural, sustainable raw materials including; sunflower oil, soybean oil and rapeseed oil.

 

Please call 01435 867072 to speak with a member of our team.

 

How do I repair damage to my Balau decking?

Some damages are to be expected once your decking has been exposed, not only to the elements but to children, pets, shoes and furniture. However, some scratches and scuff marks are quick to repair with the easy 3-step method;

 

 

1.   Clean

2.   Sand back the damaged area

3.   Re-oil

 

If your decking is discoloured, it may only need scrubbing with hot soapy water to give it a new lease of life. However, for mould and mildew, and faded or stained decks, you will probably need to use a cleaning product specifically made for cleaning and restoring decks. Make sure you always scrub in the direction of the grain of the wood so you do not rough up the surface and edges.

 

For further information on cleaning or repairing your decking, give us a call on 01435 867072

Oak Link Building Project

25 February 2019

We recently completed an oak link structure on behalf of a very happy client, which saw the joining of the main 15th Century house to an adjacent barn building. 

For this project Round Wood worked closely with the client to come up with the design and submitted the planning application.

 

 

 

 

The structure features a contemporary zinc roof finish supplied by Crown Leadworks based in Kent, which contrasts nicely with the traditional tiled roofs of the other two buildings either side.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Internally, the exposed brickwork and oak trusses give the space a timeless feel whilst adding character to the overall design. Having glass the whole length of the building both sides, makes it a lovely light and airy room.

 

The oak windows and doors were made by Round Wood’s in-house joinery shop.
