Cladding

Offering weather resistance, improving thermal properties and an attractive appearance, timber cladding is a great choice to enhance any property.

Whether it’s for a new build, renovation or extension, we can supply a variety of practical and attractive softwood and hardwood cladding, sawn in square or waney edged finish to protect and finish external walls with a stylish and natural wood product.  

Aiming for a traditional or contemporary look? Our cladding/weather-boarding choices will suit your needs.

Feather edge – for a clean straight edged traditional look
(Western Red Cedar – sawn finish – in photo above)

Our hard-wearing but cost-effective Western Red Cedar, Douglas fir or Larch cladding (all softwoods) can enhance the look of any exterior building. Each can take UV protection finishing oils and stains well but can look equally attractive if left to weather naturally to the silver-grey appearance, typical of these exterior grade timbers.

‘Yorkshire’ board – spacing to suit light and airflow requirements

'Hit and Miss' Larch cladding
‘Hit and Miss’: More wind and weather proof than ‘Yorkshire’ boarding whilst allowing for natural shrinkage and expansion in the boards (Larch – sawn finish – in photo above).
Machined waney edge larch cladding
Waney or ‘Live’ edged – beautiful natural look weather and draft proof cladding (European larch – planed finish – in above photo)

Cladding in oak or sweet chestnut offers a classic appearance to any building and the durability that comes with a naturally slow grown, dense, hardwood material:
