Used extensively as a building material for thousands of years, timber cladding has made a comeback in recent times, coveted for its aesthetic charm and structural advantages by architects, landscape designers and homeowners alike.
Timber cladding is an excellent building resource as it can completely transform any existing or new structure providing a contemporary yet organic look and feel.
Different timbers in varying lengths and sizes are available to enable you to concentrate on designing your perfect creation.

Benefits of timber cladding
Our cladding boards are often favoured for their appearance but it offers substance as well as style. Benefits of the cladding include:
Theres nothing like natural timber if you want to achieve an organic, back-to-nature feel.? Our timbers offer a versatile and stunning appearance that other materials cant replicate. Natural variations in the grain and texture enhance its natural charm, transforming any building project instantaneously.
Cladding can be used extensively and lends itself to many different external applications. The cladding can be modified to suit your specific requirements with a number of paint and staining options available.
A range of profiles, finishes and sizes are also available.
Superior heat retention?
Timber options can also contribute toward heat and sound insulation, making it an ideal choice as a building material for domestic and commercial properties and home studio pods. In studies, timber has been shown to provide superior heat retention compared with concrete, steel and aluminium.
With careful positioning and minimal maintenance, timber cladding can last between 15 to 30 years or more, depending on the type of timber used and treatment. Our range features a wide variety of timber cladding designed to suit many different budgets, starting with pressure-treated cladding, which offers a minimum 10-15 year lifespan.
Naturally weather-resistant, our cladding boards effortlessly withstand wind, cold and rain. Timber grown in harsh environments offers natural protection against the elements and can be relied upon to retain its structure and style for longer, especially if treated regularly.
The cladding offers a unique quality that other building materials cant whilst others fade and decay, our timbers age gracefully, resulting in a stylish silvery-grey aesthetic.
If you want to preserve the initial appearance of your cladding, a simple UV stain will prevent this process from taking place.
Good for the environment, good for you?
One of the most compelling benefits is its appearance alongside the practical benefits it gives but did you know that timber has also been studied for its health benefits? From reducing stress to maximising productivity, theres a reason timber cladding is increasingly being favoured by architects working on educational and well-being projects worldwide.
