Covid-19 - 23/09/2020 - Everyone at iWood would like to thank you for your continued support during the pandemic.

As more of our customers have started coming back to work we have seen an influx of orders. As such, British Timbers are currently on a 4 to 7 week lead time, with most other products on a 14 to 28 working day lead time (some products have longer lead times as described in their individual descriptions). We are still following government guidelines to keep our staff and customers safe.

British Douglas Fir Shiplap Cladding

There are two profiles of British Douglas Fir Shiplap cladding that we have to offer which are:

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

Shiplap cladding is designed to be fitted horizontally so the curved lip along the boards can drain water away effectively.

Of the British softwoods we supply, Douglas fir is one of the best. British Douglas fir varies in colour from a pale red to an orangey colour, the natural variation in the timber gives you a unique product which looks great. Our Fresh Sawn Merchantable Douglas Fir will contain small knots.

You can treat your British Douglas Fir with an oil which will protect it from the sun's UV rays. This will help to prevent the timber from weathering and turn silvery grey. External timber cladding should be sealed to prevent moisture movement with the seasons. See our "Treatment Guidance" section for more information.

Our British Timbers are growing more and more in demand and many projects are now specifying that British timbers must be used over the foreign alternatives. British timber is often cheaper than imported wood and is just as good for external use like cladding.

If you have any special length requirements (currently Douglas Fir shiplap cladding is supplied 3m and longer) please give us a call on 01889 597281 or talk to us on our online chat before order. This will allow us to make sure we can fulfil your requirements. If we can, you can enter your chosen lengths into the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page.

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:

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

Delivery times

Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 14 to 17 working days.

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.

Delivery day

Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.

Delivery times

We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.

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.
