Cedar Cladding

One of the most popular timbers for cladding is Cedar because it’s competitively priced, looks great and is easy to work with. Cedar cladding has impeccable durability which enables it to naturally withstand the elements and infestation.

There are two different types of Cedar cladding we offer – Canadian and British – they are the same species however have very different characteristics such as:

Canadian British
Colour Dark, Vibrant Red Light creamy, brown
Knots Very few knots, and if there are knots they are very small Has many knots
Grade Clear and Better Fresh Sawn Merchantable

Timber cladding is a very useful product for barn conversions, sheds and covering new buildings. There are many different profiles of cladding which all have their own uses and are all suitable weather protection.

Cedar Cladding Profiles

Cedar Cladding is available in a range of profiles which incorporate different types of cladding I.E. Feather Edge, Rainshield, Tongue and Groove, Shiplap and Waney Edge (Waney Edge is British Cedar Only).

Feather edge and waney edge are the more traditional forms of cladding, the most common and the cheapest. The boards for these types of cladding are designed to overlap each other horizontally and are machined into a wedge shape. The main difference between the two is that Feather Edge is square and waney edge has tree bark on the edge that you see.

Rainshield (also known as rainscreen) boards sit on top of each other rather than over lapping. There is a slight slant cut into the board to allow water to drain away safely and prevent water damage to the structure.

Tongue and Groove (T&G) is our recommended form of cladding, the boards fit together easily and can be fitted horizontally or vertically. T&G offers increased security as well as protection from the elements. Shiplap provides a larger area of overlap and is only suitable for horizontal use.
