Western Red Cedar Tongue and Groove Cladding

We have a variety of tongue and groove profiles available in Imported, Canadian Western Red Cedar for you to choose from and they include:

  • IWC1 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 135mm face - For horizontal or vertical fitting
  • IWC2 - 19mm x 95mm overall, with an 88mm face - For horizontal or vertical fitting
  • IWC3 - 19mm x 142mm overall, with a 125mm face - For horizontal or vertical fitting
  • IWC4 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 125mm face - For horizontal or vertical fitting
  • IWC5 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 125mm face - For vertical fitting only

All these profiles can be fitted vertically or horizontally apart from IWC5 which is only suitable for vertical fitting. Where necessary we can machine to custom profiles for bulk orders, however we wold require the drawings before we can quote and proceed.

Our Imported, Canadian Western Red Cedar tongue and groove cladding is supplied in "Clear and Better No.2" grade which is one of the highest grades of imported cedar available. The timber is almost knot free giving you a nice clean finish to your cladding and the colour of the cedar is a quite remarkable range of dark reddish-brown to pale pinks and oranges. You can see the range of colours in some of the pictures below.

Imported Western Red Cedar is one of the most resilient when it comes to moisture movement, however we would still recommend sealing it for ultimate stability. Like all timbers, Cedar will turn silver-grey with exposure to sunlight within a few years. If you would like to protect the colour then you can UV protect the timber to prevent it from turning silvery grey. See our "Treatment Guidance" section above.

Our western red cedar tongue and groove cladding is supplied in random lengths between 2 and 4 metres to match the area you want to cover. We can supply exact lengths where required but please check with us before ordering to make sure we can supply those lengths. You can call us on 01889 279 018 or you can talk to us on our online chat. If we confirm that we can provide the lengths please type the lengths you need into the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page after checking with us we can provide them.

If you want to use secret nailing on your cladding then you will need to choose our IWC3 profile.

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:

Imported Canadian Western Red Cedar vs Home-grown British Western Red Cedar

This imported Canadian Cedar has a lot fewer knots than the British Cedar, and also a wide range of warm colours, from reds, oranges and browns to creams. Click here for British Cedar Tongue and Groove Cladding.

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

These fitting guidelines are only a rough idea on how to fix your tongue and groove cladding. We do recommend you employ a professional who has experience fitting tongue and groove cladding.

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. If you are fixing your cladding horizontally, your battens need to be placed vertically, at around every 600mm (60cm), and vice versa.

Fixing

** 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.

To help stop the wood from splitting we recommend pre-drilling the timber and then holding it with the screw or nail head when you fit the board to the batten. Look to leave a 3mm gap between the boards, rather than butting them up tight like flooring, to account for any moisture movement and make sure that the tongue is facing upwards otherwise moisture will start gathering in the groove of the profile.

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.

You can fit IWC 1,2,3 and 4 vertically or horizontally depending on the look you want from your timber. Whilst technically you can fit IWC5 horizontally, water can sit in the square channel, which is not recommended.

With each new row of cladding you add, it's preferred that you stagger the joins between each board so you don't create a visible seam.

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.
