Using timber cladding has long been a popular way to finish a building and has become a particular favourite on contemporary design projects.
It can be an attractive, economical and eco-friendly way to finish a property and it is becoming increasingly popular on both commercial and domestic buildings.
When selecting a cladding timber it’s important to choose one that is naturally resistant to decay so Western Red Cedar, Siberian Larch and Thermowood are all popular choices. They offer a great deal of protection if installed correctly and are well maintained, lasting a lifetime and more. Vertical Grain Hemlock, Clear Douglas Fir, Redwood and Whitewood can also be used for cladding but will require proper, adequate treatment.
We can provide natural timber cladding systems, offering advanced design and precision machined profiles.
Please Note: All profiles are bulk machined to order.
