Capricorn Eco Timber
Stafford, United Kingdom
We are an innovative, specialist, eco-friendly Stafford based timber merchant, machinist and sawmiller delivering a bespoke service for claddings (including burnt timber), beams, and decking to all parts of the UK and abroad. Our forte is the supply of locally grown, naturally durable, sustainable, FSC certified timber species which can be used for exterior applications without the addition of potentially toxic preservative treatments normally needed to enhance their longevity. These species grow naturally in the UK and the revenues have a direct benefit to our own UK economy, in addition to having a very small carbon footprint compared to the thousands of miles our previously traditionally supplied imported timbers have to travel. As part of this ethos we are producing our own version of burnt timber cladding, "Tiga Wood" using 100% British FSC timber species. This is a variation of the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban and Yakisugi burnt cladding technique but modified to suit our British species and environmental standards.
