Timber Cladding Profiles

Profiled cladding is suitable for both internal and external applications. Kiln dried cladding is used internally as it is less inclined to shrinkage or movement, while air dried cladding and fresh sawn profiled cladding is used for all external applications.

  • Featheredge Cladding

    Featheredge cladding is also known as weatherboarding or feather-edge boarding and it is a traditional means of cladding homesIt is simply a sawn board cut on the diagonal to produce a tapered board that is over lapped when fitted, similar to roof tiles.

    Traditionally oak cladding was used but more recently other species have proven to be both durable and popular due to sometimes significantly lower costs. Here you will find oak, western red cedar and larch featheredge boarding or cladding in various dimensions.

    We supply both of the standard weatherboarding sizes cut from a 38mm board:

    • 24mm reducing to 6mm at the feather
    • 28mm reducing to 8mm at the feather 

    Please note: The advertised price of our featheredge cladding is per square metre and is in random lengths unless otherwise specified at an additional charge. 

  • Profiled Cladding

    Our profiled cladding is suitable for both internal and external applications depending on materials used. Kiln dried cladding can be used internally due to the reduced possibility of shrinkage or movement whereas air dried cladding and fresh sawn profiled cladding should be used outside for all external applications. We manufacture oak half lap and shiplap cladding along with western red cedar shiplap and half lap.

    The advertised price of our profiled cladding is per square metre with the exception of ThermoWood which is priced per linear metre.

  • Waney Edge Cladding

    Waney edge boards can best be described as a board with one waney edge and residual bark that shows off the individuality of the tree from which it was cut. One edge is cut straight to enable simple fitting and the waney edge is the one that is displayed. Waney edged boards are a traditional means of weatherboarding or cladding that retain their rustic appeal.

    We supply oak waney edge boards as well as English Larch waney edge boards for cladding.

    The advertised price of our waney edge cladding is per square metre.
