British Western Red Cedar Waney Edge Cladding
Home-grown, British Western Red Cedar Waney Edge Cladding features one straight sawn edge and one edge left to the profile of the tree, often including the bark. This cladding offers the most natural look of all the claddings we offer.
There is only one profile of British Western Red Cedar Waney Edge cladding that we supply which is our IWC12. Waney Edge is the most traditional form of cladding. The boards are meant to overlap each other with the one waney edge showing and the square edge hidden at the top.
British Western Red Cedar is a characterful timber which does include knots and it has a light reddish-brown colour. We supply the cedar in a Fresh Sawn Merchantable grade.
There has been an upsurge in demand for British wood recently and Western Red Cedar is one of our more visually stunning home grown timbers. It’s also very competitively priced making it a good choice for both quality and budget.
We supply British Western Red Cedar Waney Edge Cladding in random lengths that come 3m and longer. If you would like exact lengths please talk to us, before ordering, either by calling 01889 279 018 or by talking to us on the online chat. If we confirm that we can supply the lengths you need please enter them into the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page.
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.
These are only basic guidelines on how to fit your waney edge cladding, please speak to a professional for advice and help before fitting your cladding because each individual situation is different.
Be sure to read our treatment guidance as treatment needs to be applied prior to fixing your cladding.
Rainshield cladding should be fitted on top of a breathable membrane, because it is designed to be fixed with gaps around it. 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. For waney edge cladding, which is fitted horizontally, your battens need to be placed vertically, at around every 600mm (60cm).
** 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.
For fixing the cladding to the battens we recommend that you pre-drill any holes to help avoid splitting the timber. Start by fitting the boards at the bottom of the structure you are cladding and work your way up. Use extra battens underneath the bottom of the bottom board to hold it away from the building. We work out the number of boards you need off a 25% overlap, so if you increase the overlap size you will need to order more boards. It’s important to make sure that the waney edge is at the bottom and the square edge is at the top.
Because the waney edge gives varying widths down the length of the board, you may need to overlap more than 25% in some places to ensure full coverage if you encounter a particularly thin part of a board. It's therefore advisable to order slightly more than you need in case you need to overlap any boards greater than 25%.
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.
What do our customers say?
Had some oak from you before and was excellent quality.
- Derek Maslen
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.
- Ben Stanbrook and Simon Nicholson
Great website and ordering process. Well presented and competitive pricing.

Some commonly asked questions
Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 35-45 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.
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.
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.
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.
