Rough Sawn Timber Supplier in BC

If your next building project includes a rustic look in the design plans, rough cut timbers are a good way to achieve that aesthetic. Rough cut lumber is wood that has been cut on a band saw in order to achieve a rough yet even wood surface. There are many different types of rough sawn lumber, and each of the different types offer varying benefits.

Types of Rough Cut Timbers

Two of the most popular types of wood to use for rough cut timbers in BC are Douglas fir and cedar. Both are excellent for use in construction and are popularly used for exposed beams and other elements. Douglas fir and cedar timbers both have long, straight grains that allow them to be used for structural and aesthetic projects without warping too often. Although both products are frequently used for both indoor and outdoor applications, cedar does better when exposed to the elements due to its superior rot resistance.
