We provide a vast range of timber to suit every project. From furniture production through to flooring and cladding, it’s important to understand the differences in wood types to establish which the best is for your specific purpose.

Hardwood vs Softwood

Joiners and wood working specialists will understand that different construction projects call for different types of timber. Both wood types have a variety of uses, from beams though to furniture, and both are available from Duffield Timber for a great price.

You may wish to use certain woods for specific uses. For example, maple and elm are popular choices for wood flooring, whereas redwood is a good option for exterior use such as decking due to its natural insect repellent nature.
