Timber Cladding Guide


Why should I choose timber cladding for my project? Wood is undeniably beautiful and aesthetically versatile, slotting into almost any environment. It can provide a seamless transition between building and surrounding greenery, or a welcome contrast within an urban environment. Natural materials like timber even makes us feel good — a theory also known as biophilia!


Compared to others, wood cladding is also a more environmentally-sustainable building material, storing harmful greenhouse gases from the atmosphere during its life cycle. In sustainably-managed forests, for every tree harvested, another is planted. This makes timber a great way to weave a sustainable story into your project.


Timber is also architecturally versatile and adaptable, working for any project, regardless of size.


Did you know that timber cladding can also keep buildings at a more stable temperature? This is as a result of wood’s cellular structure. In fact, wood insulates fifteen times better than masonry, 400 times better than steel and 1,770 times better than aluminium. This also makes it a great sound insulator, keeping noise out.


What’s the best timber for external cladding?As well as looking the part, a good exterior cladding timber needs to be able to stand up to everything the seasons throw its way — sun, rain, wind, snow — as well as having resistance to insect and fungal attack. In addition to this natural durability, dimensional stability is key.


Softwoods like  Larch and Fir are some of the most popular options for outdoor wood cladding as they perform these roles.Fir boasts a wild, interesting grain with plenty of variety — great for adding some stunning natural character to your project. Not only that, but it’s also particularly strong and scratch resistant.


Exterior cladding profiles: different types, styles, designs.


A cladding’s profile refers to how the wood is machined and determines how the pieces fit together. Different profiles can provide very different finished looks, and can even affect weather resistance and outdoor performance.


Just as with the species, when it comes to profiles, there are many types. There’s no universal ‘best profile for exterior timber cladding’ — your aesthetic vision and practical needs will determine this, of course.


Some types of profile can provide a classic, traditional or rustic look, while others can lend your project a sleek, modern and contemporary feel. The profile fit can also convey protection benefits against moisture and rainfall, so that might factor into your decision making if your cladding is at a high elevation.


Whether for a small household or large-scale commercial project, this is the ideal all-rounder profile and is possibly the most popular out there.

So, now you’ve chosen a species, profile and style, your mind might turn to finishes, maintenance and treatment of your cladding.


Outdoor cladding is nearly always exposed to direct sunlight at some point in the day. Regardless of species chosen, this will eventually discolour the cladding, turning it into a silvery-grey colour.


Some people enjoy natural timber cladding as it’s left to weather — particularly those looking to achieve a rustic architectural feel. 


Vacuum treatment

The surface treatment is based on the vacuum painting technology which produces highly qualitative priming, painting, staining, and varnishing from four sides.Vacuum coating device is ideally suitable for treating lumber and woodworks with uneven surfaces (roughly brushed, sawn, with various cuts or millings, etc.) while spray painting is better suited for smooth surfaces (planed, sanded or lightly brushed).


Better result

For best results, we recommend that you re-coat the pre-painted finish boards after they have been assembled, as the final coat of paint covers the nail or screw areas. Factory coated finish boards are best suited for facades and have significant advantages over boards painted on site. On-site painting, taking into account climatic conditions, is more complex, expensive and of less quality.


Industrial painting

Industrial painting gives you a smoother, better quality of coating than painting by brush or roller, and the processing time is incomparably faster! Woodworks are processed and dried exclusively indoors where there is a constant temperature and no dusty environment which increases their quality. Only environmentally friendly water-based finishes are used for coating. We can also use solvent-based finishing materials as well as two-component finishing materials for wood treatment.
