Wood you look at that?

Wednesday, 25th September, 2019 4:47pm

Whether you’re looking to add some character to a DIY project, or a touch of opulence to your home, Quality European Hardwoods has the wood for you.

With their spectacular natural finish, hardwoods have the practical advantage of being hardwearing and well able to endure the rigours of family life.

Because of their density and strength, hardwoods will not bruise or dent as easily as softwoods and although they can be more expensive than the pines, firs and spruces frequently specified by builders and architects, hardwoods such as ash, beech, linden and poplar are surprisingly competitive.

For worktops, shelving, window boards and furniture pieces throughout the home, hardwoods such as cherry, maple, sapele and dark red meranti can offer rich hues and luxuriant tones. Outside, larch, iroko and robinia timbers are ideal for cladding, decking and garden furniture, while Quality European Hardwoods’ green oak beams are perfectly suited for construction projects such as pagodas and other framework structures.

Robinia, one of the more durable hardwood types, can last for up to 50 years in the ground totally untreated.

Quality European Hardwoods supplies wood to both trade and public and its experts are happy to advise customers on their projects, however big or small. The resident carpenter will offer to cut, plane and finish a customer’s choice of hardwood to their specification or even build them a staircase of their dreams.

Quality European Hardwoods’ 15,000 square foot warehouse is located at Rossleague, Cobh, Great Island, just 15 minutes from Dunkettle, and can be easily found on Google Maps.
