Timber cladding is an increasingly popular choice for finishing the outside of commercial and domestic properties. Also known as timber weatherboarding or timber siding, it is an attractive and economical way to finish the exterior of both old and new buildings.
Why should you choose cladding?
- A benefit to timber cladding is that it’s aesthetically pleasing. Timber is a natural material that makes its finished look appear warm and comforting. Timbersource’s range of wood species means that an entire spectrum of natural tones can be achieved, with colour evolving as the wood weathers and ages.
- Western Red Cedarand Iroko are extremely popular choices for cladding because of their exquisite look. Western Red Cedar is from Canada / North America and is very popular for its natural durability and pleasant aroma. Iroko timber is a very popular hardwood due to its close similarity with Teak; this is an excellent alternative as Iroko is less expensive. Cedar looks after itself and saves you time and effort whereas Iroko is beautiful to look at, very modern and natural looking.
- Another benefit to timber cladding is that it is natural and durable, this means that it will be able to withstand a great deal of unpredictable conditions and impacts. Timber is a very substantial material and it has the natural defences to resist pollution and weathering, therefore making timber claddingvery long lasting.
- Timber claddingis also very versatile meaning it’s available at custom lengths and in choice of profiles. It can be designed in various patterns and species, which makes it flexible into suiting the wants and needs of customers.
