The environment is of major importance to C.R Hobby & Son. That’s why we use timber that has been responsibly sourced from sustainable woodlands and suppliers.

Sustainable timber

Wood is a renewable resource, and therefore has a far less detrimental impact on the environment than some of the alternatives. Nevertheless, it takes a long time for a tree to grow, so you’ll want to be sure that the wood we source has been ethically and responsibly grown, managed and obtained.

We use timber from managed woodlands and suppliers, all of which are PEFC and FSC certified.
We use Teknos and Symphony coatings. All our products will be finished by us in our purpose-built workshop, prior to installation.
We are happy to provide home visits to assess your requirements. We build and fit staircases of every description, as well as providing sympathetic repairs.

If you have a traditional door that you need replicating, we are happy to do this for you – we will mimic the style of the existing door down to the finest detail. All doors are traditionally constructed with mortice and tenon joints.

What timber do we use?

  • Scandinavian Redwood
    A softwood, otherwise known as Scots pine, which is distinctive in appearance – a versatile wood that we use in standard joinery work.

  • Accoya
    An ideal timber for exterior joinery – durable, with a low thermal conductivity, it is capable of withstanding the effects of bad weather.

  • Sapele
    Pinkish brown to reddish copper-brown in appearance, with a fine texture, Sapele is a moderately durable wood that has some really nice aesthetic properties, making it ideal for shopfitting and furniture joinery.

  • Idigbo
    A yellow to yellow-brown wood with a medium to coarse texture. We recommend Idigbo for exterior works and furniture.

  • European oak
    This distinctive wood is light brown with a golden hue, and is ideal for use in flooring and cladding, as well as in furniture production.

  • American ash
    A pale timber, with a yellowish hue and straight grains – good for flooring, tool handles and interior joinery.
