Testimonials

We think our customers are awesome and they think our sustainable timber is fantastic!

David Ruffles Lincoln
Our draftsman suggested LMA timber as feature walls against the Hebal on our new build. Being maintenance free, it was an easy decision to make. We are also constructing our decking from their timber, as I want to be sitting on it, not maintaining it.

Martin and the team at LMA Timber were super easy to work with, right from the time we picked up the sample of timber at the Home Show. All the appropriate drawings and specifications we needed for consenting were supplied, and we were kept up to date with shipping details. We are delighted with how the reclaimed Australian hardwood that we have chosen for our home, compliments the surrounding hues of our iconic Alpine landscape perfectly.
Our builders were very excited to work with this beautiful product, and their workmanship has enhanced every aspect of it. The arrival of our reclaimed hardwood onsite, created quite a stir amongst the neighbouring building sites. Smoko was brought forward, and the tradies congregated, to assess and admire this amazing product, with just a hint of jealousy. The density of this timber has increased our home’s thermal capacity, an excellent bonus in our alpine environment.

After meeting Martin from LMA Timber at the Christchurch Home show in 2018 and looking into reclaimed Australian hardwood cladding, we were never going to be using anything else. The look, durability, the fact that it is reclaimed timber and virtually maintenance-free had us completely sold on it. Now that it’s up, it looks spectacular and we have received many enquiries as to what this beautiful cladding is!

We were very excited to be given the opportunity when building our new home to use LMA Timbers reclaimed and sustainably sourced Tallow Wood ( Australian Hardwood). We used it for our exterior cladding on the 1st floor of our home which doesn’t require any ongoing costly maintenance. We liked the timber so much we also used it for extensive decking around our home and our interior stairs bannister which looks stunning. The timber has received many favourable comments and we are very happy with the outcome

ITM Rangiora – Warren Fail “I  was first introduced to LMA Timber when I was kindly invited to their opening of their new “show office” on Dyers Road. From that point onwards, I loved the story this product told with it being “reclaimed timbers” and the variables offered with this hardwood cladding. It offered a difference around visual appearance with the different species of timber offered and the lack of maintenance required once installed. It was also surprisingly affordable compared to other cladding timbers offered to the market.

My customers and their clients have been well impressed with the story and the look that has been achieved using LMA reclaimed hardwood cladding and I will continue to recommend using this product rather than common timbers which are often suggested for cladding and or features in and around my customers homes.

Thank you Martin and the team and I look forward to many more happy customers after using LMA Timbers!”

Pernod Ricard Winemakers – Church Road
As part of our commitment to sustainability and responsibility at Pernod Ricard Winemakers, we were looking for a partner that could support us with trellis alternatives that are not only sustainable, but also meet the needs of the vineyard and the surrounding environment. LMA Timber was a great partner to tackle this, they enabled us to utilise repurposed timber to fulfil our requirements. They provided us with stable, long lasting and untreated timber, which was simple to install and has great aesthetics.

Kate Lattey & Koldo Santamaria
Aesthetics, functionality and sustainability were the drivers when selecting the posts for establishing our dream vineyard. After two suppliers fell through at the last minute, Martin and the team were a godsend helping to bring this dream to reality – and with a superior product. Breaking new ground comes with many challenges but Martin helped us navigate these to deliver the new gold standard for premium grape growing. We are so thrilled with the result and have had so many favourable and envious comments about our vineyard. Cheers to LMA Timber!

Cindy Nagy – Cladding and Decking While discussing our new home with Martin, right at the beginning of our new build, sustainability, low maintenance and longevity were factors important to us regarding all materials.  We were impressed that the cladding and decking materials offered by LMA Timber covered all these aspects and made the decision to use these timbers from the start.  LMA Timber also supplied timber for internal slats.  We have lived in Australia and are familiar with many of the beautiful and hard wearing timbers there.   Aesthetics is also important to us and we love the look of our house and deck. 

 We would recommend Martin and LMA Timber team to anyone contemplating a wood finish for any building project. 

Mike Gibbs of Kumanu Builders
I used LMA vertical shiplap for cladding my house in Sumner. Being in a coastal environment I wanted something that would weather well and also require virtually zero maintenance. I am absolutely stoked with the product, the timber arrived when Martin (The Director) said it would and it was well packed and filleted. I was also really impressed with the timber lengths and quality. It looks amazing on the house and I get lots of comments and compliments. Finally and most importantly this is a re-used product and has a great story around sustainability and caring for our environment.

Matt Fechney- Director Omaha Building
The timbers going up are primo, it looks amazing. The clients are happy as.

Roger McRae – Placemakers Queenstown

WOW, is all I can say when this delivery arrived today…

Builder also impressed as much as me… (he was just worried about how he will cut them to length… haha)

They were the talk of the town coming in, and we should have left them in the yard as advertising for a week… but sent them to site ASAP today also to save any possible moving around and damage.

Hope we can sell more down the track…
