There is a rise in demand for British timbers with more and more projects specifying that any timber used is British. We are happy to provide different British timbers and support local sawmills as well as those on the continent and further afield.

The British Cedar that we provide is graded as "Fresh Sawn Merchantable". Home grown Cedar is naturally more knotty than the Canadian Cedar we supply which, depending on your point of view, gives the timber more character and gives a more traditional look to your cladding. The colour is a light reddish-brown and it will weather over time to a silvery grey.

British Western red cedar cladding is supplied in random lengths of 3m and longer. There is a chance that we can supply the exact lengths that you would like if you need us to but we do ask that you check with us before ordering. You can call us on 01889 597281 or talk to us on our online chat. If you have confirmed the lengths with us you can enter your requirements in the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page before checking out.

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.

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.
