Our Canadian Western Red Cedar Shiplap cladding is only available in clear and better grade. This grade of timber is almost knot free and is one of the cleanest and modern timbers we supply. Its range of deep red through to pale orange colours is a sight to see and make this timber very desirable because it immediately catches the eye.
We provide Canadian Western Red Cedar shiplap cladding in random lengths between 2m and 4m. If you would like exact lengths please give us a call on 01889 279 018 or talk to us on the chat to confirm we can supply those lengths before ordering. If we can get those lengths you can then specify them in the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page before checking out.
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.
Our fitting guidelines are designed to give you a starting point on how to fit your shiplap cladding and we recommend that you consult an expert fitter to advise on your actual scenario.
Be sure to read our treatment guidance as treatment needs to be applied prior to fixing your cladding
Consult a fitter to determine if your scenario would require the fitting of a breathable membrane between your wall and the cladding. This membrane stops rain getting to the wall, but allows moisture to escape, helping to prevent internal condensation and mould that can come with it.
Treated Softwood Battens
Treated softwood battens (available from our cladding accessories pages) are most commonly used to fix to the wall (or on top of the breathable membrane) to then fix your cladding to. Shiplap cladding is to be fixed horizontally only, so your battens need to be placed vertically, at around every 600mm (60cm).
Fixing the Cladding
** Whether you use nails or screws, it's important that they are stainless steel, or silicone bronze ARS, so that the natural tanins in the timber will not corrode them. Never use iron nails for fixing timber.
The timber is designed to only be fitted horizontally with the start of the running lip across the width of the timber at the top. To stop your wood from splitting it’s best to pre-drill any holes and then hold the boards with the head of the screw.
You can also use nails, preferably ring-shanked for extra grip, and again stainless steel so they don't corrode. For lower-density species like cedar, consider using nails with larger heads so the cladding doesn't pull through.
As already stated, these are just ideas to get you thinking about installation and you should consult a professional installer before fitting your cladding as every scenario is different.
All our claddings are provided untreated. Fresh sawn timber claddings are best left untreated and to go silver grey.
There are a wide range of optional treatments available for different species of timber and we recommend talking to the excellent team at www.wood-finishes-direct.com, who know the most up-to-date information on all the newest treatment products.

The order process is excellent, this is my second order with you.
- Rob Hill
Stanbrook & Nicholson Ltd have been buying European Oak from iWood since their inception. In our trade it is often difficult to get both service and product quality from our suppliers. iWood have consistently provided us with an absolute first rate product with service to match. A high proportion of our timber purchased comes as cut to size putting our wastage at nearly zero per cent. This also speeds our process of manufacture.
