Timber Cladding

Timber cladding is a superior option to give your home or commercial premise depth and individuality. Along with a natural look, the versatility and strength of timber is a long-lasting durable choice. With the right specification, planning, design and finishing processes, timber cladding will deliver a construction of premium strength, solid fire ratings, acoustic and thermal performance.

When choosing timber cladding boards there are a few points that should be considered:

  • The grade and appearance of the wood required to actualise the architectural style
  • Availability of the timber and how much it costs, as well as availability and cost of alternative timbers
  • Ease of initial installation and ongoing maintenance time and costs
  • Specific climate and thermal performance for the building and area
  • Whether the architectural build needs any extra structural strength, which only certain types of timber cladding can provide
  • Building, land and commercial laws for local and statutory requirements.
