Western Red Cedar Shiplap Cladding

We supply Imported Canadian Western Red Cedar shiplap cladding in the following two profiles:

  • IWC6 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 135mm face - For horizontal fitting
  • IWC7 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 128mm face - For horizontal fitting

Both of our shiplap profiles are designed to be horizontally fitted. The two profiles are different patterns with IWC6 giving you a 135mm face and IWC7 providing a 128mm face.

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.

Without treatment the wood will turn silvery grey so to keep the vibrant colour of the wood we recommend that you coat your Cedar with a UV protection oil. If you are going to treat your timber you need to treat it before using it. This will help you apply an even coating and will garner better results.

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.

Treatments

Be sure to read through our treatment information by clicking on "Treatment Guidance" above. It talks about sealing, preserving and protecting the timber from the sun's UV rays. Here are quick links to the products we recommend:

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.

Fitting Guidance

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

Breathable Membrane

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.

Some commonly asked questions

How long does the cladding take to deliver?

Because we are sourcing our wood based on demand to ensure the highest quality, delivery may take from 14 to 17 working days once your order has been placed with us.

What are your delivery costs?

We calculate our delivery costs based on how far away you are from us, to get more information on this please check out our shipping costs page HERE.

Offloading

Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.

For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.

How do I place an order for cladding?

You can place your order online by working out your price above and adding your items to your shopping basket. You can then check out and your order will be processed securely and a confirmation email sent. Once your order arrives in our depot, we'll give you a call to arrange delivery.

Can I Order Samples?

Yes you can, you can order samples of certain timbers at www.iwood.co.uk/sample-request/. If the species you need isn't there please give us a call or talk to us on our online chat.

The timbers shown are planed all round samples and are not profiled.
