Tanalised Wood For Fencing Top.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can buy tanalised timber to replace the rotten timber on the top of my fence panels. I need it to be 50mm x 15mm x 1820 mm. I have looked at B & Q, Wickes and Homebase but nothing there.

I was reading that fencing and wood supplies are in desperately short supply at the minute (well all building supplies generally it seems, but especially wood), so you might be out of luck until Autumn when they're expecting things to settle down. A bit of a quadruple whammy of Covid, people having delayed building projects until we've come out of lockdown which also coincides with Spring when people start doing stuff to their gardens, shipping containers in short supply and issues with wood production in Scandinavia apparently. You could always try Arnold Lavers I guess and see what they've got though.

I was very pleased with 'The timber specialists' in Sheffield. I travelled from Rotherham, a round trip of 15 miles. Well worth it for the excellent service and a good price to boot.

Try Purdys at Woodhouse Mill, very helpful and friendly. 

They haven't anything that size, I called today. 

Thanks for the replies can't find anything in that size at any of them though.

I occasionally use a local diy shop in my area. I know they sell tanalised.

I contacted them, they didn't have any either.

It seems after all the places you have tried now, the supply problem of diy & building materials must be quite bad.

 

Initially it was the Suez canal issue. There is also an issue in the Chinese ports area.

 

An outbreak of Covid-19 at one of the busiest ports in the world has led to global shipping delays - and could lead to shortages in the run up to Christmas according to industry experts.


Guangdong province, with ports in the area, including Yantian, Shekou, Chiwan and Nansha experiencing issues and delays.

Having been to both recently I find it hard to believe that Sheffield Timber on Herries Road and Hillsborough Fencing on Livesey Street cannot supply suitable  tanalised sections.
