About Us


Oak Beams by Gareth Caven is a small family run business. Most of our custom comes from word of mouth as we provide a service that is first class and 100% customer focused.

We work from home, thus having low overheads, which mean we can pass the savings onto you, our customer.


We usually have around 20 – 30 beams in stock and all are available to buy off the shelf. Most of our beams on display are planned and sanded and awaiting treatment. We are also able to offer oak fire surrounds using our stock of beams.

We only use the finest oils and wax to treat our beams. Treatex hardwax oil is used to preserve and enhance the natural beauty and appearance of our solid oak beams and fire places. Treatex manufacture their oils from natural materials such as Beeswax, linseed oil, sunflower oil, carnauba wax and more.

These hardwax oils are available in a choice of colours but the most popular are Light Oak, Medium Oak and Dark Oak.


Danish oil can also be used as a final treatment, a superior blend of natural oils and resins that penetrate the oak to nourish, feed and protect, giving a tough, durable and water proof finsish.
