The Benefits of Oak

Oak is strong, hard and very resistant to moisture and the elements. It is a naturally long-lasting material, many old barns and houses were constructed with oak and are still standing today, years (or centuries) later. Oak is a popular cost-effective and durable solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is a truss that uses oak as a material. The truss supports the roof and can create an incredible impact on a building’s interior if the roof space is left open.

Green oak refers to how fresh the oak is after it has been felled. If the oak has been cut within 3 to 18 months after being felled it retains 60-80% of the tree’s moisture. So when it is used it is still drying naturally, therefore it may move as it continues to dry out.

Air dried oak typically has 20-30% of moisture content following an intense drying process. Subsequently, it has less movement and therefore is much more suitable for projects with a direct glazing component.

There are other differences but this is the most important in construction.

Determining the necessary planning permission for installing a green oak truss can be complex and context-dependent. Factors such as the type of building and its listed status, particularly Grade 1 or Grade 2, can influence requirements.

For accurate guidance tailored to your specific situation, it’s advisable to seek counsel from a local planning expert. They can assess your circumstances and advise on whether installing a feature truss aligns with regulations in your area.
