English Oak Waney Edge Cladding
One Waney Edge One Straight Edge cladding features one straight, sawn edge, with the other edge left to the contour of the tree, still containing bark.
We supply English Oak waney edge cladding in our IWC11 profile. This profile provides you with, approximately, 185mm face coverage once the boards are overlapped. Due to Waney edge (like feather edge) being an overlapping profile you get more of choice on how much overlap you use, which gives you more control over your cladding.
IWC11 is designed to be fitted horizontally with the one waney edge visible at the bottom and the square hidden by the overlap.
Our British Oak is sourced from certified and managed forests which aim to conserve timber. These managed forests make sure that wood becomes a renewable source. This not only helps the supply of timber but makes sure that we look after the environment better.
Waney Edge Cladding is supplied in a Fresh Sawn Character grade which means that your cladding will have some knots in it. However, none of the knots will be large dead knots and having character in the wood is something that appeals to people who want a more traditional look to their cladding.
English Oak Waney Edge cladding is supplied in random lengths to match your coverage, however, where necessary we can supply exact lengths. If you do require exact lengths then please call us (before ordering) on 01889 597281 to make sure we can supply the lengths you need. If we can, there is a “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page where you can enter your lengths.
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.
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.

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.
