Oak Framed Garage Photos

9 October 2019 in News | Oak & Decking Products | Oak Framed Buildings

A selection of images from a recent project featuring a 3-Bay oak framed garage supplied by Round Wood.

Over the last 12 months, Round Wood of Mayfield have supplied over 100 customers with oak framed garage kits from their bespoke Round Wood range.

These have included tradespeople and accomplished DIYers who have assembled the oak frames themselves, as well as clients who request a full-service solution from groundworks to roofing.

 We asked this client if we could take photos of their completed project:


 This local client required parking for 3 vehicles, along with additional storage.


The frame features; oak weatherboard and joinery, manufactured in Round Wood’s own workshop.


The client opted for a hipped roof with traditional catslide to rear.


A bit more about Round Wood's bespoke oak framed garage kits

Round Wood frames vary from one to four bays, are available with gable, hip or barn-end roofs and can include half-bays, aisles, and log-stores.

All buildings are traditionally crafted using curved braces and perfectly cut, oak pegged, mortise and tenon joints. Oak is often used as it contracts over time to provide further stability. However, there may be changes made depending on the required look and finish of the build once complete.

All frames are pre-assembled in the workshop prior to dispatch to ensure fit and ease of build.

Round Wood of Mayfield also supply standard oak framed buildings through their Chippy range should you require something simpler.

When these different shades are clipped in together, an extraordinary display of colour is achieved, giving any outdoor living space a warm and homey atmosphere.

NEW Thermory Brushed Spruce Cladding - Drift Collection

20 August 2019 in Oak & Decking Products

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.



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 in Oak & Decking Products

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. 


All you need to know about Balau decking

4 July 2019 in Oak & Decking Products

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


Finishing Touches

To ensure your decking is best suited to your outdoor space and specific needs Round Wood offers a unique range of decking components, (all available in Balau) these include;


Balau handrails, baserails, infill, posts and spindles.
