British Western Red Cedar Rainshield Cladding

Not what you're looking for? Head over to our Cedar Cladding page to see all of the Western Red Cedar Products we have to offer.

British Western Red Cedar Rainscreen cladding is only available in our IWC8 profile.

The British timbers that we supply are growing more and more in demand as people look to home-grown products. We are proud to supply top quality British Western Red Cedar Rainscreen Cladding which is sourced from sustainable and managed forests.

We supply Fresh Sawn Merchantable grade British Cedar which is a characterful timber containing knots. Even though it is "Fresh sawn", British Western Red Cedar is stable enough to be machined into a profile.

The Cedar is a light reddish-brown and the colour isn’t as prominent as it is in the Imported Canadian Cedar. Over time the wood will weather and turn silver-grey.

The lengths are usually supplied randomly 3m and longer, if you do need exact lengths then please call us on 01889 279 018 or talk to us on the online chat. On the shopping basket page we have a “Special Instructions” box where you can leave the exact lengths you need for your cladding as long as you have checked with us before hand.

Treatments

Most people leave their timber to go the traditional silver-grey in the sun. We recommend talking to www.wood-finishes-direct.com if you would like to treat your timber. If you do decide to treat your timber, it needs to be treated all the way round including the ends to prevent moisture getting in at all.

Canadian and British Western Red Cedar

Please see below some pictures of planed all round Western Red Cedar slats. Although they aren't pictures of cladding you will be able to see the colour difference between the Canadian and British Western Red Cedar which will help you to make a choice between the two.

What do our Customers Say?
Hello iWood Team, Please find attached some pics of the workshop that I built last year using your Western Red Cedar. I am very pleased with the outcome, what an amazing material to work with. Hope that the pics are suitable for your needs.

It was so easy.
- Shkumbin Sufa

Clear indication of dimensions and prices and quality. Thanks for the sample
- Peter Elliott

Have used before. Great products and service.
- Jeff Benson

Just a quick line to say thanks for the swift delivery of the ash I ordered a couple of weeks ago. It is now installed as stair treads/ landing and looks superb. Just one small gripe, the delivery driver didn't call me to say he was on his way which meant I had to rush over; he did help me carry it into the house though. I think the picture does them justice.
- Stephen Barker, Spalding

To get a price, you can type in how many square metres of cladding you need. It's very easy to work out.

We're going to work out the total area of one side of a building, then subtract the windows and doors, then add 10% extra for wastage.

1) For each wall that you’re cladding, measure the full width and the height in metres to work out the total area.

In this (expertly designed) example, the frontage is 9 metres wide and 4.7 metres high. 9 x 4.7 gives a total 42.3 square metres.

How to measure For Cladding Step 1

Total area of frontage = 9 * 4.7 = 42.3 square metres

2) Work out the area of the doors and windows

In this house front there are four windows and a door. Measure the width and height of each window and door, then add the areas together:

How to measure For Cladding Step 2

  • Window 1: 1.9 x 1.2m = 2.28 square metres
  • Window 2: 1.2 x 1.2m = 1.44 square metres
  • Window 3: 1.2 x 1.2m = 1.44 square metres
  • Window 4: 1.9 x 1.2m = 2.28 square metres
  • Door: 1.0m x 2.0m = 2.00 square metres

Total area of windows and doors = 9.44 square metres

3) Subtract the area of the doors and windows from the total area of the wall.

We now have our total area (42.3 square metres) and the total area of the doors and the windows (9.44 square metres). Because we don't want cladding to cover the windows and door, we take the door and window area away from the total area.

Total area to clad = 42.3 – 9.44 = 32.86 square metres to clad

4) Add at least 10% spare for wastage

We recommend ordering at LEAST 10% more cladding than you've measured for to account for the required cutting and shaping.

32.86 square metres + 10% = 36.146 square metres. In this case, we'd round it up to 37 square metres.

Total to order = 37 square metres

Do the same for any other sides of the building, add them together and you'll have your grand total.
