Characteristics of Timber
Timber is an entirely natural product which exhibits a number of inherent growth characteristics. These are often labelled as imperfections, but their presence does not mean that the timber is defective. They can include variation in grain, colour, knot frequency and knot size.
In addition to these naturally occurring characteristics, the appearance of timber can also be influenced by the production process (sawmilling, drying, machining, etc). Cutting and machining can introduce wane and a variety of marks & whilst drying can result in splits and cracks.
The colour of timber can also vary depending on species, method of treatment, time from cutting, time from treatment and storage conditions. The initial green colour of Tanalised timber slowly weathers to a light brown, and in the longer term becomes a natural silver grey.
Softwood timber contains resin. Changes in temperature and humidity can cause resin to leak from timber, especially in its first year of use. In Tanalised timber this can result in a blue colouration on the surface of the wood at the point of exit. Upon weathering this fades rapidly into the overall colouration of the treated timber.
Splitting is the characteristic of timber that often causes the most concern. Many timber products are prone to splitting, but this does not mean that the product is defective. It is simply an inherent characteristic of timber that rarely affects its structural integrity or inherent strength. Products like fencing timber, sleepers, decking and beams are generally sold in a fresh sawn state, so are liable to split as they dry out after installation. The larger the dimension of the timber, the larger and more obvious the resulting splits. Ultimately, no one is responsible for this, as it is a natural material. We give this information so informed decisions can be made about using timber for your projects.
No guarantee of longevity, or against cracking or movement of timber, or against any staining or rot of timber however caused, is given on any timbers unless specified in writing at the point of order. This does not effect the Buyers statutory rights.

How We Deliver
We typically deliver goods on a 3.5 tonne flat bed van. If access to your delivery address is restricted, please let us know when placing your order.
Delivery is kerbside only, or as close as the driver can safely reach while remaining on a hard road surface. Our delivery service does not include the movement of timber away from the kerbside to another location on your property. Any decision relating to the safety of delivery beyond kerbside is at the individual driver's discretion. Please note the following:
- our delivery service does not include the manual carrying of timber to any location on your property
- our delivery vehicle will not leave a hard surface to fulfill a delivery (ie. across a grass verge, field or similar)
- our delivery driver will not squeeze through a narrow gate or down a narrow drive if he is not confident that it is safe to do so
If you request that our driver to take the delivery vehicle beyond kerbside onto your property and he agrees, we will not be held liable for the cost of any damage caused to your property (or services running beneath your property) by the vehicle or driver.
You do not have to be present to accept delivery, although we advise you are present if you do not wish the goods to be left. Once the goods have been delivered to your premises, ownership and liabilities arising from ownership transfer from us to you.
Any shortages must be reported within 24 hours of delivery. LVS Fencing Ltd will not be liable for any claim for loss arising from short delivery after this period.
Cancellation of orders is possible for stock goods at any time up until the point of delivery. However, cancellation cannot be accepted by LVS Fencing Ltd in respect of the following:
- Goods or materials especially ordered for the buyer.
- Goods or materials especially manufactured or cut for the buyer.
- Goods or materials already despatched to the buyer.
