A Handy Guide To Cladding – A Natural and Attractive Insulator

Timber cladding provides designers and architects with a unique combination of practical, aesthetic and also environmental advantages.


Timber is a fantastic natural insulator. It offers a great option for both thermal and sound insulation requirements on buildings. It’s lighter and easier to install than heavy alternatives, and is suited to almost any building project.

Environmentally Friendly

Timber is renewable, and our cladding features various certification so you can feel rest assured it comes from sustainable sources. Not only can it be easily repaired should damage occur, there’s also major potential for re-use or recycling should the building require a full refurbishment in the future.


Timber is naturally attractive and comes in a massive range of grains and colours to suit any budget. Wide choices of processing options are available, including FSC or PEFC certification, fire retardant treatment, UV protection and solid colour coatings. A fresh finish can bring tired cladding back to life and also offer essential protection.

Different profiles make all the difference too. Each option will vary how your cladding appears once installed. We offer a wide range of profile options, including shiplap, V-groove and featheredge.
