The explosion in garden makeover programmes in recent years has prompted many homeowners to consider transforming their outdoor space. And as the experts at Brentwood’s leading timber suppliers know only too well, treating your garden to a little TLC can do wonders for its sale prospects when it’s placed on the housing market as well as increase the enjoyment of your home in the mean time.
Summer is traditionally a busy time for Vickers Timber Company Ltd – one of Brentwood’s best-loved timber stores – as more homeowners look to modernise their gardens to make the most out of the warmer weather. In light of the tough economic climate, the timber suppliers have now made it even easier for cash-strapped couples to replace tired borders, cracked patios and shabby fences with a number of special offers.
The locally-run firm, which has supplied high quality timber products to the retail and trade industry for more than 30 years, is currently selling new garden sleepers for £16.50 each compared to the usual price of £22.50. In addition, its decking is also currently on offer at £1.80 per metre, providing the perfect reason to get cracking on that garden facelift.
David Hooper, general manager of Vickers Timber Company Ltd, said: “We are your typical timber merchants selling a variety of high-quality timber products, including garden fencing, sleepers and decking. We see a lot of local people visiting us at this time of the year as they get their gardening projects underway and the fact we offer a free delivery services goes down particularly well.
“Our staff have a lot of experience and are here to help if you’re not sure what you’re looking for or if you need advice. One of qualities as a smaller, independent store is that we always have the time to listen and help our customers and provide that personal service.”
Vickers Timber, based on Tallon Road Industrial Estate, stocks an impressive range of timber products and related items including fixings, nails, screws, bolts and varnishes. The store offers mouldings, treated timber, softwood sawn, machined white oak and softwood ex European Redwood to name but a few which can be cut to match your exact requirements.
The store is a member of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) which gives customers peace of mind that the wood products being sold originate from well-managed forests.
The store is open 8am-5pm Monday to Friday and from 8am to 12pm on Saturdays. For more information about Vickers Timbers products and services, call 01277 724889.
