Cladding

Cladding

In recent years timber cladding has become a popular choice for finishing the outside of both domestic and commercial buildings. Also known as weatherboarding or timber siding, it is an attractive and economical way to finish the exterior of new and old buildings. Naturally hardwearing and durable woods such as larch and cedar provide a hard wearing, protective layer against the elements and are excellent natural insulators.
