What Makes Timber Gates From B&K Great

You’ve visited our website, you’ve heard our radio jingle, so now we’re on your mind, you might be wondering what makes our timber gates so great?

The B&K Timber Business

Here at B&K Timber, we are a family run business set up in 1985, meaning we now have over 35 years of experience under our belts, we are well established in the Stoke-on-Trent area.
We could not have gained, and kept, our great reputation without the expert team that we have here. From expert joiners to precision fitters and everyone in between allowing the business to run smoothly.
Our joiners work closely with the team who have designed your gates, ensuring that they understand the requirements and how the gates will fit your space. This allows us to build the perfect gate for you, the first time around.

Our Choice Of Wood

Scandinavian Redwood is our wood of choice here at B&K Timber. We have chosen to use redwood due to its stunning colour and grain, with the added benefit of its expended lifespan and water resisting properties.
Scandinavian redwood is considered to be a softer wood. The great benefit to using softwood for your garden and driveway gates is that it is significantly lighter than hardwoods. Allowing you to open and close your gates with ease, and without the concern of the weight pulling the fittings loose over time.

The Test Of Time

When it comes to external wooden features, whether this is your gates or fences, there will always come a time when they start to become affected by the weather. Without regular treatment, this may come earlier.
However, the main issue with many gates is that they have not been made to measure. Ill-fitting gates are more likely to succumb to damage, whereas fitted gates are less likely to have issues and remain in place over time.
Having been in the area for many years, the team have seen repeat customer, not only to replace gates when they have passed their best but across our full range of services, including shed and fences.
