The Production Mill
At Covers, our Quarry Lane depot boasts a fast production sawmill where we produce in excess of 150 different types of planed-all-round skirtings, architraves, TGV boards, shiplaps and mouldings in Whitewood, Redwood, Cedar, Douglas Fir and Hardwoods.
We are able to supply FSC-certified or PEFC-certified machined wood to order, with the Chain of Custody guarantee that this has been sourced from responsibly managed forests.
Our mill is responsive: every week, we custom-machine thousands of metres of mouldings to customers’ own patterns. Our mill is automated: we’re able to offer faster turnaround. Our mill is environmentally-friendly and produces up to 8 times of wood shavings daily. This is recylced as animal bedding and increasingly converted into wood pellets for biomass heating.
The Hardwood Mill
Covers’ hardwood mill takes pride in producing a huge variety of non-stock, specially machined finished sizes and mouldings.
We can supply environmentally sound FSC-certified, PEFC-certified or CSA certified hardwood products to order.
We have supplied to Windsor Castle, Arundel Castle, Clarence House, Goodwood House, Uppark House and many other key Georgian and Victorian buildings in the south have benefited from our experience with complicated mouldings to match and replace existing period features.
All across the region our timber mouldings have been used to accurately match the original plasterwork in listed buildings and country houses. Our decades of specialist experience in producing intricate moulding work speaks for itself. So challenge our expertise – no matter how unique your moulding, we can match it in Softwood and Hardwood timber.
Covers can also provide an efficient and completely cost-effective estimating and reproduction service for special or hard-to find mouldings using a CAD system for accurate drawings.
