European Oak Tongue and Groove Cladding

We supply European Oak Tongue and Groove cladding in the following profiles:

  • 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, apart from IWC5, can be fitted horizontally or vertically. IWC5 can only be fitted vertically.

You have a choice between our Prime Grade and Light Character Grade Oak for your cladding. Prime Grade Oak has very few knots and any knots in the wood will be very small whereas Light Character will contain more knots, however, these boards will still not contain any large dead knots.

Both our Prime and Light Character grade European Oak is kiln dried and so requires sealing before installation to protect it from moisture getting in.

European Oak is a good cladding timber because of its durability and natural resistance to rot. You will need to treat your timber before you fix it to prevent moisture movement. This will help to stop the oak from shrinking in the summer and expanding in the winter.

As standard we supply European oak tongue and groove cladding in random lengths of 2m and longer to fill the area you require. If you would like to specify the lengths you need please call us or talk to us on our online chat to make sure we can supply the lengths you want and then, if we confirm we can supply those lengths, you can tell us the lengths in the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page.

If you require secret nailing on your cladding you will need to select 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:

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.

Because kiln dried timber will try and take in moisture, and in turn cause movement in the wood, it's important to completely seal the timber on all sides to prevent moisture getting in. There are many product options available, with new, improved products being released all the time, so the best company to talk to is Wood Finishes Direct, who have an expert and always up-to-date timber treatment advice team. www.wood-finishes-direct.com.
What do our customers say?
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.

Some commonly asked questions

Delivery times

Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 17 to 21 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.
