Company: MacDirect Ltd

MacDirect Ltd, NZs premier supplier of macrocarpa (cypress) timbers to the building trade for the last 20 years, has just listed on Smartspec.

MacDirect sources all timbers form NZ plantation grown Monterey and Mexican Cypress commonly known in NZ as Macrocarpa (macrocarpa/lusitanica cuppressus). The raw logs are processed at our sawmill in Patumahoe, South Auckland. Timber is further profiled and finished through our onsite Weineg 4 sider moulder. We endeavour to always have dry stock of most sizes of 25mm and 50mm thick timber. Mainly air dried in our large “drying shed” we also have a dehumidifier kiln, and solar drying “tunnels”. Larger piece sizes are “cut to order”. ETA normally 5-10 days from confirmation.

Macrocarpa the “sustainable building option”, with natural durability similar to H3.1 treated pine, locally grown and processed.

  • MacDirect cladding is been used in many exclusive settings,(Cape Kidnappers Golf lodge) but can also be cost efficient for the environmentally discerning, (Zero Energy house).
  • Beams, framing, consistently strong and stable structurally, plus beautifully decorative. Supplied bandsaw or dressed.
  • Sarking, flooring, joinery, all readily available from MacDirect. Panel grade (tight knot) or clears.
