  • Featheredge

    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 overlapped when fitted, similar to roof tiles.

    Designed to be laid horizontally, it is important to make allowances for at least a 35mm overlap on each board (50mm is best) when making your calculations. If your boards are exposed to varying weather conditions before fitting, they are likely to cup, warp and split; the ideal time to fit cladding to keep this to a minimum is between the months of October and April and within 7 to 14 days of delivery. It is of the utmost importance to follow fixing guidelines when fitting your cladding, due to the natural characteristics of the timber used.

    It is recommended that the fine sawn face of the board is exposed as opposed to the planed face, this will not only give you that traditional featheredge finish, but will allow the timber to accept and retain any treatment, thus keeping future maintenance of your cladding to a minimum.

    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, as well as English Larch, Siberian Larch, Treated English Softwood and Black Painted Kiln-Dried Whitewood featheredge boards in various section sizes, suitable for applications in both residential and commercial settings.


  • Rebated Featheredge

    Similar to the featheredge cladding profile, Rebated Featheredge is a sawn board cut on the diagonal to produce a tapered board that is overlapped when fitted, similar to roof tiles. Our rebated featheredge boards are rebated to enable the featheredge to fix flat for additional stability and improved weather resistance.

    Designed to be laid horizontally, it is important to make allowances for at least a 35mm overlap on each board (50mm is best) when making your calculations. Using rebated feather-edge horizontal boards for cladding, it is possible to reduce the overlap to 25mm but you should have a 2mm gap to allow for possible expansion of the boards. If your boards are exposed to varying weather conditions before fitting, they are likely to cup, warp and split; the ideal time to fit cladding to keep this to a minimum is between the months of October and April and within 7 to 14 days of delivery. It is of the utmost importance to follow fixing guidelines when fitting your cladding, due to the natural characteristics of the timber used.

  • Shiplap

  • V Tongue and Groove

    If you're looking to achieve that effortlessly classic 'T&G' look, we are certain that our high quality V Tongue and Groove Cladding options will make it an easy choice.

    Just like the classic T&G profile, these boards are fixed together by inserting the tongue into the groove. The chamfering at the top and the bottom of the boards accentuates the individual boards by creating a subtle 'V' shadow line along the joints. What makes this profile different from the Tongue and Groove profile is that these boards are reversible so either face can be used. Dependent on your style, they can also be fitted either horizontally or vertically; should you choose to fit them horizontally, it is recommended that the boards are installed with the tongue uppermost, this is to allow any moisture to fall away from the tongue.

    Available in Character Grade Oak in various section sizes, we are sure to have an option to suit.
