When you are looking to purchase from an Essex timber yard, sometimes you need to see all of the products in one place. Although our website is easy to navigate, we thought it would be helpful to give you an overview of all the products we have to offer. 

Profiled Products 

We have a wide range of profiled timber products on offer. These can be produced in any type of timber species that we have available. 

Decorative and Interior Products From an Essex Timber Yard

If you are looking to over haul your home, these are the profile products for you. We have 6 types of skirting board available, so no matter your interior vision, you will find something to match your style. Our skirting board is completely customisable; you can choose the species of wood, the width, the length and how many lengths of board you require. Allowing customers this level of choice means there are more options available and there is opportunity for endless combinations within your home.

We also have trims. These can be used as a decorative addition to walls, ceiling and even furniture. Our wooden thresholds can keep dirt, moisture, and other things away from your room by filling the gap between different floorings seamlessly. 

Windows and Doors

One thing people often neglect in their homes is the decorative wood around their doors and windows. Many opt for a PVC window cill, but if you’re looking for more classic feel, a wooden cill can add a sense of class to any room. Whether you’re looking for a box cill or a flat cill, we have both options available in your timber species of choice. 

Our profiled door products include weather boards to prevent leaks and drafts, door frames that protect your walls, and interior door architraves that are a step up from a regular door frame. As with our interior products, these window and door options are available with fully customisable options. 


Here at Timber 2 U direct, we talk a lot about decking and cladding, and for good reason. We have a range of both exterior cladding (including shiplap, and smooth) and dual profiled decking profiles. These are perfect garden space. Our decking is available in hardwood species to ensure it lasts for many years. 

Made To Measure Timber 

If you are looking for timber for any project, Timber 2 U Direct, an Essex timber yard, is the right place to get it. Our made to measure timber is available in a wide range of wood species, all from FSC certified forests. Made to measure timber is perfect for any project as the length can be fully customised to what you need. We will even over cut slightly to ensure you don’t fall short. 

Essex Timber Yard Temperate Hardwood 

Any temperate hardwood comes from forests in Canada, Europe, and the East of the USA. Temperate forests usually contain two types of trees. These are deciduous trees (maple, oak, beech, chestnut, and elm) and broad-leaved evergreens. The temperate hardwood produced from these forests can be particularly useful for outdoor construction projects. Oak is the most popular choice. These woods are durable as they come from slow-growing, broad-leaved trees, making them perfect for withstanding anything the British weather throws at them. We offer tulipwood, European oak, American black walnut, American maple, light steamed beech, American white oak, and American ash within our temperate hardwood range, so there are plenty of options for whatever project you are completing.

Tropical Hardwood

Tropical hardwood can be found growing in forests that surround the Equator such as Central and West Africa, and South America. These hardwoods are particularly strong and have a resistance to abrasion and impact. They also have a higher resistance to fire due to the higher density of the wood, making it one of the safer hardwood options for cladding. Our tropical hardwoods include iroko, meranti, and sapele. These are the perfect hardwoods you need for any outdoor decking to ensure its long lasting and has minimal damage.


A softwood forest will consist of coniferous trees like cedar, pine, and fir. This type of wood contributes to around 80% of the total timber production in the world. As well as hardwood, softwood can also be found in temperate forests in coastal regions with drier climates. Despite the name, softwood isn’t actually soft. In fact, cedar is particular resistant and is, technically speaking, the hardest softwood. If you are looking for a cheaper timber, our Essex timber yard offers softwood at a lower price to hardwood, with the guarantee that it is sustainable and still of good quality. 

Oak Beams From An Essex Timber Yard

If you have a project that is of a larger scale, you might benefit from purchasing our fresh sawn or air dried oak beams. These can be delivered with our made to measure service. They are large square beams that you can choose the thickness and length of, to match your requirements.
