Redwood Beams & Timbers

Our premium F.O.H.C. redwood beams and timbers are available in the grades Construction Heart redwood, Heart B redwood and Clear All Heart redwood to help meet any construction situation you might encounter. Standard sizes, full-sawn rough and custom sizes are available. Any redwood beam you order from us can be obtained mill-rough, surfaced smooth or finely re-sawn on all four sides. Redwood is a beautiful wood, so it's ideal for highly visible applications such as porch posts, exposed beams, arbors and gazebos.

For a description of the standard redwood grades as defined by the Redwood Inspection Service see Redwood Grades & Uses. You'll find pictures of the grades below on this page.

Availability of Our Redwood Posts and Timbers

We have one of the largest selections of redwood beams, porch posts and timbers in the business. Many of these are available partially air-dried. The majority of our finely selected large redwood timbers are “free-of-heart-center” (F.O.H.C.) to provide you with less splitting and checking in normal use. We "baby" our redwood beams. We protect them during the drying process with heavy end-waxing and cover-boards to help them dry evenly and without damage.

All redwood stock listed is available as Mill-Rough, Surfaced Smooth or Re-sawn on 4 sides.
