It’s an irritating fact of life that a green oak frame will invariably require cleaning once it has been erected and made weather tight.

From the moment it is felled and converted into timbers, the oak will start to bear the marks of it’s physical journey from tree to frame.

To start with, tannins in the oak react with iron saw blades during milling producing distinctive blue black stains. Then when we timber framers get our grubby clomid online mitts all over it in the workshop, we leave a trail of pencil marks, calculations and dodgy doodles compounded by copious numbers of highly visible ink lines. Add to this a muddy building site and more Great British weather leeching out tannins to create yet more brown staining, and the frame can end up looking a little the worse for wear.
