In construction, timber is commonly categorised in to the different types of timber – hardwood and softwood, although, some softwoods can be hard and vice versa. Softwood usually comes from coniferous trees which are evergreen, with hardwoods coming from broad-leaved deciduous trees.

Of the two types, there are numerous types of wood which each have their own characteristic working properties.

Wood is a very important material used in the construction industry, with the majority of new residential houses being made from a timber-framed construction, and also used as a supporting material for doors and their frames and kitchen units.
