Authentic Hand Hewn Timbers

Hand Hewn Timbers have become incredibly popular for residences, cabins, lodges and other projects. Owners desire authentic timbers which represent their lofty ideals and values, yet are grounded in a solid sense of history. Designers and contractors seek to satisfy the goals of their clients while minimizing the inherent sourcing, quality and reliability issues which accompany the use of these unique materials.

Trestlewood has a unique approach to this market, which makes it your trusted source for Hand Hewn Timbers:

1) Quality: Trestlewood sorts and trims every timber as it comes into the yard. The result is that the customer receives quality timbers and spends its time building and not sorting through stacks of substandard timbers.

2) Selection: Trestlewood maintains an unmatched Hand Hewn inventory of mixed species timbers and more than 60,000 board feet of Oak Hand Hewn Timbers which ensures that Trestlewood is able to satisfy the needs of even the largest building project and come up with an option for even the most unique Hand Hewn Timber request. The result is that the customer can order the timbers it needs and can receive them when they need them.

3) Honest Information: Trestlewood barcodes every Hand Hewn Timber and maintains a searchable database of all of the timbers in stock. The result is that the customer can count on Trestlewood's information from the planning stage all the way through delivery and installation.

4) Accountability. Trestlewood maintains a powerful photo database, which allows the customer to browse through photos of projects which have used Trestlewood products in the past and inspect the timbers that Trestlewood proposes to send if the customer cannot visit Trestlewood's facility and chose the timbers in person.

5) Integrity: Trestlewood has a written Specification Sheet which describes the acceptable characteristics for Hand Hewn Timbers. In the rare circumstance that Trestlewood sends timbers that do not comply with the written specification sheet (or if the customer wants to return standard products for any reason), the customer is protected by the Trestlewood Product Liability and Return Policy.
