Treated External Timber Cladding

Most external claddings can be left untreated to go the traditional silver-grey colour in the sun within around 18 months.

Some claddings, such as kiln dried oak requires sealing all round in order to prevent moisture entering the timber and making it expand.

Numerous external timber treatments are available with different properties, and new treatments are coming out all the time.
