Cladding

Cladding

Timber cladding has become increasingly popular in recent years – it is attractive, flexible and has several environmental benefits. Timber is a naturally renewable resource, it has high insulation levels and also offers acceptable sound absorption properties. Most timber cladding will fade naturally to a silver-grey colour, but colurs can be maintained or enhanced by using wood oils, wood stains or in some instances by paint finishes.

Cladding boards can also be used horizontally, diagonally or vertically depending on the building and timber profile used. Horizontal cladding tends to be the popular choice, with profiled boards providing interesting shadows. Care should be taken when fixing boards to ensure water runs away – e.g. shiplap and TGV boards should be fixed with the tongue facing upwards. Attractive designs can made with diagonal cladding, but they are more vulnerable to water penetration - where a chevron effect is required the boards should be fixed to form an inverted 'V' pattern to allow water to drain away from the centre.

Cladding timbers can be used vertically, but care has to be taken to maintain the weatherproof nature of the cladding. Featheredge and square edge timbers can be used but allow a minimum 25mm overlap. Sometimes two layers of square edge timber are used, the inner boards normally being wider, say 150mm, then an outer layer of smaller timbers fixed over the joints or gaps of these boards. Vertical cladding, can also be used for buildings with curved surfaces, using rebated or tongue and groove boards to ensure sufficent overlap for shrinkage.
