Cladding - Timber

Cladding - Timber

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 colours can be maintained or enhanced by using wood oils, wood stains or in some instances by paint finishes.

Timber cladding boards for style
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 can be more vulnerable to water penetration.

Vertical timber cladding
Cladding timbers can be used vertically, but care has to be taken to maintain the weatherproof nature of the cladding. Square edge timbers are often used for vertical cladding, they will need a minimum 25mm overlap or alternatively two layers of square edge timber, 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 sufficient overlap for shrinkage.
