British Larch Waney Edge Cladding
Waney edge cladding is like feather edge in that the boards are designed to be fitted horizontally and over lap each other. The difference between the two is that no two waney Edge boards are the same because the one Waney edge is basically the outside of the tree and often still includes the bark.
The knotty and characterful nature of British Larch waney edge really brings this profile to life and gives you one of the most traditional looks for your cladding at a great price. This timber is supplied as "Fresh Sawn Merchantable Grade".
The natural variation of colour in the Larch really sets it apart from some of the other more uniform timbers. The colour of the boards can vary from a reddish-brown to a brick red. If you would like to keep the natural variation of your cladding you can protect it by treating the cladding with a UV protection oil, this will delay your wood from turning silvery grey as it is exposed to the sun.
British timbers are really popular and a lot of projects have started to demand the use of home grown timbers over the use of their foreign counterparts. British timbers are structurally sound, great for exterior use and bring character to your cladding which some of the more uniform foreign timbers lack.
We supply British Larch in random lengths of 3m and longer. If you have a requirement for exact lengths please give us a call on 01889 279 018 or talk to us on our online chat, before ordering, so we can confirm we can fulfil your order. If we can, then leave the lengths you need in the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page.
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:
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.

The quality of the kiln dried oak you sent looks really good & some of the best I have seen in my 9 years of being self employed, so thank you very much for that
Had some oak from you before and was excellent quality.
- Derek Maslen
It was so easy.
- Shkumbin Sufa
Just a quick line to say thanks for the swift delivery of the ash I ordered a couple of weeks ago. It is now installed as stair treads/ landing and looks superb. Just one small gripe, the delivery driver didn't call me to say he was on his way which meant I had to rush over; he did help me carry it into the house though.
I think the picture does them justice.

Some commonly asked questions
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.
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.
