An oak beamed ceiling/floor adds character to any room while creating the base for the upper floor whether it is of modern or traditional design timber ceilings will bring added value to any home.
Structural ceilings and floors
When building your wooden beamed ceiling/ floor we work closely with your Architect, Engineer or builder to ensure that the upper floor is correctly supported.
Retro fitted oak beamed ceilings
When using solid wooden beams to create a false ceiling you must remember that there will be a certain amount of disruption to the room that will require re plastering and decoration and often any filler between the new timbers and original ceiling will need to be repaired after the beams have settled.
