Lawsons is a family run business situated in the heart of the West Lancashire countryside and established for more than 60 years. We specialise in reclaimed timber and we also import new hardwood flooring from sustainable sources throughout the world. Our team have a wide range of knowledge in the construction industry and many years or experience in design enabling us to be sympathetic and understanding to each customer individual needs. The very nature of reclamation demands vision and inspiration to achieve designs that are being created out of materials that have stood the test of time and are already hundreds of years old.

What We Do

We machine reclaimed timber into products such as doors, floors and various items of furniture. You can view all the different things we sell on our product pages. Everything we make is bespoke and made to customer’s own individual size and specification. Our joiners are fully City and Guilds qualified and use traditional methods with the help of modern machinery to reduce time costs to produce high quality work. Customers can visit the yard whenever they wish to check on progress of their requirements, as everything is made in house. This is something we try to encourage customers to do so they have complete piece of mind. We also sell reclaimed and new Oak beams and also reclaimed Pine beams. The reclaimed Oak and Pine beams need to be restored and treated before they can be re-used and this is a service we offer to customers. This involves removing the softand decayed timber from the beams by hand, then we often shot blast them, then give them final sand and treat them with a universal insecticide and fungal killer.

Our Stock

Because reclaimed materials are unique and individual, it is impossible to list our stock holding as this can change from day to day. We do however hold a large amount of beams and flooring, both new and reclaimed. In our sawmill we produce high quality Oak boards with special antique finishes aimed at the heritage market. Also we now specialize in stone and slate floors. On top of this we have our own joinery shop manufacturing doors and different mouldings for skirting and architraves. Our team consists of fully qualified joiners who have a years of experience with traditional construction methods to ensure our products are in keeping with the settings they are going in.

Philosophy

Our aim is to provide high quality products along side excellent customer care, so our clients can proceed with their projects with the knowledge that our experience and understanding of the building and renovation industry, will ensure that the job runs smoothly and without problems.
To recycle materials as much as we possibly can, this is becoming more and more important as the obvious signs of global warming start to take effect. We wont be able to save the world, but at least we are doing our bit!
To mix contemporary ideas with old products to create interiors which meet with today’s high standard of living.

History

Established over 60 years ago, Mr T Lawson senior saw the quality of timber and various other materials that was starting to be taken out of buildings after the war, also in the old Lancashire cotton mills that were dis-used or undergoing renovation. He realised there was a market value in this, mainly due to the quality of the old timber, and started up what is now a thriving business.
