Light, durable woods make for superb cladding
Whether you’re looking for a contemporary shadow gap, traditional cartlodge featheredge or something else altogether, we have the solution for you.
We’re quite particular about the timber we recommend for cladding so we can make sure you achieve the best finish possible.
Western Red Cedar
Rightly popular, cedar’s versatility, durability and sleek finish make it one of our favourites – perfect for contemporary buildings, impressive colour consistency and minimal knots make it very easy to work with.
Highly durable and full of character, we can supply air-dried or kiln-dried cladding depending on your requirements. European oak is well suited to traditional featheredge, but when machined smooth also works well in modern settings.
Competitively-priced, this dense softwood is durable with a natural finish that blends seamlessly into any setting when left to weather. With no need for chemical treatments and a choice of grades, larch works well for a variety of looks and styles.
This thermally modified Scandinavian redwood has a very low moisture content, making it much more durable and stable. As with larch, there’s no need for a chemical preservative treatment.
Increasing in popularity, accoya is a chemically modified softwood. With enhanced durability, accoya paints and machines well with a high quality, smooth appearance – when installed and finished properly accoya can look the part for years to come.
