It's for that reason that we've invested a great deal of time and money in developing a new website, to make it easier for you to find all the products we supply to builders' merchants, timber merchants, shed and garden building manufacturers and to the joinery manufacturing and constructions sectors.
Snows Timber started in the late 1800s and our strengths of excellent service, great products, quick, reliable delivery and sustainable sourcing have ensured our longevity. Our new website - effective on tablets and mobiles as well as PCs and laptops - is a key part of our plan to remain your favoured timber supplier for the next hundred years too.
You'll get your products quickly also: with four distribution centres, we can ensure delivery within 48 hours, anywhere in the UK.
Like most reputable timber suppliers, Snows Timber uses responsibly sourced wood wherever possible. Now over 99% of our wood comes from responsible sources, verified by FEC®/PEFC accountability programmes. Where necessary American Oak timber is bought in compliance with EUTR rules.
You can immediately see that, while prepared timber for construction is still a lynch pin of your product range, we have all sorts of different areas of wood production covered. We are, in more and more cases, providing wood products to suit specific needs as well as timber itself. Snows Timber is the place to find the products you need, quickly and easily.
Planed Square Edge
The most important wood product for the construction industry, PSE is even more in demand as wood frames become more popular for house building, from one-offs to whole developments.
As well as being able to buy whitewood and redwood in a variety of sizes and lengths, the packs work for you too. Trade Packs contain between one and one-and-a-half cubic metres and loose metre runs are available where a Trade Pack isn't suitable.
As well as being able to easily browse and order timber, we have the information you need. There's a Timber Buyer's Handbook you can download to find out what's on offer and how you can sell it, or to pass on to new members of staff to enhance their knowledge.
Skirting, Architrave and Interior Mouldings
Snows Timber has been supplying ready-made mouldings for years and the range just gets bigger and bigger, giving you the mouldings your customers need, day in, day out. To make it easier to navigate the very wide choice of mouldings, we've split them out into two sections: Skirting & Architrave in one and Interior Mouldings in the other.
In the Skirting & Architrave section, you'll find all the profiles your customers will ever need, in softwood, oak or MDF. The Interior Mouldings section covers all other mouldings - picture rails, dado rails, doorstops, handrails, window boards, and glazing beads.
If you can't find the profile or size you need, give us a call and we'll let you know if we can find it for you.
Cladding & Flooring
Cladding and flooring are two products that have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, driven by consumers' desires to have something a little different, those desires driven in turn by property programmes like "Grand Designs".
While cladding has always been in demand for fencing and garden buildings, it's making a comeback as a building material too. Wooden floorboards have always enjoyed steady demand, being in demand as practical and hard wearing floor components, but today, more often than not, they are the star of the show as well.
Snows Timber has kept abreast of these trends and the new website makes it easier and faster for us to add new products as they come along too. As well as traditional wood products we can supply ThermoWood(r), a product from Finland where pine and spruce are heat-treated to make it more durable, and Cedral, made from fibre cement in a range of wood-like colours and finishes but easy to erect and low maintenance.
Carcassing, CLS & Batten, Panel Products
For the basics needed for construction, look no further than Snows Timber. Discover kiln-dried timber in packs, split packs and picked to length, and scaffold boards too. Panels are available as loose sheets or in packs and a cut size facility is available too, covering all the major panels such as ply, MDF, chipboard, OSF and more.
Agricultural Products, Fencing & Landscaping
Moving outside, there are cost-effective agricultural products such as fencing, gate posts and dungboarding. For the home, we supply decking and sleepers, and fencing panels and accessories in softwoods and ThermoWood(r) and wood composite.
Green and brown treated fencing timbers are available at all four of our UK distribution centres and our small single pack lots are perfect for contractors and merchants who aren't able to deal with full articulated lorry loads direct from sawmills.
It's not just products
Of course, as well as products, there's comprehensive support for merchants and distributors. We've already mentioned the Timber Buyer's Handbook and there are copies of all our contracts and credit agreements too.
For merchants, we offer marketing support to help you improve your sales and margins with Snows Timber products. Our marketing team can help with everything from leaflets and signage to training your staff to get the best out of every sales opportunity, including social media - an increasingly important sales channel for switched-on merchants.
