Transforming British Woods

Durable timber for cladding, decking and joinery

Brimstone is a beautiful range of durable British-grown wood for cladding, decking and joinery.

Better British

We use thermal modification to transform locally grown wood into award winning cladding. We don't use nasty chemicals - just heat. The result is an attractive, durable timber for outdoor use.

Better British

By using British woods, we’re supporting local broadleaf woodlands. This supports local species and rural jobs, while reducing the environmental impact of global timber transportation.

Five reasons to choose Brimstone

Love local

Why import wood from thousands of miles away when it grows just down the road? Brimstone is all grown in England and Wales – usually within 100 miles of our sawmill.

Tried and Tested

The clever Scandinavians did all the hard work developing this process. We did a whole lot of testing just to be sure. It works.

Five reasons 02

Conservation costs

Woodlands rely on income from selling wood to pay for conservation work. Buying Brimstone means you’re supporting tree planting and helping to increase biodiversity.

Five reasons 04 v2

Natural beauty

It looks amazing. In fact, one complaint we get is that it looks too good to leave outside.

Five reasons 03 v2

Nothing but heat

That’s it. No nasty chemicals, just intense heat. Heating wood above 160°C is an age-old way of preserving it.
