Why use timber cladding?

image for Why use timber cladding?

We thought that it would be useful to summarise a few of the environmental, aesthetic and practical advantages of using external timber cladding in any building project:-

  • It's a lightweight material offering protective and decorative design functions.
  • Timber is a renewable resource and is certified to ensure it's sustainability.
  • It is attractive in grain and colour.
  • Dry installation makes it quick to install.
  • Low carbon footprint - requires less energy to produce than any other building material.
  • Wide choice of softwoods, hardwoods and modified woods to suite all budgets.
  • Available in a number of styles, textures, profiles and finish options which encourages design innovation.
  • Outstanding thermal and sound insulation properties.
  • Suitable for both new build and renovation projects.
  • Potential for re-cycling at the end of it's life.
  • Performance easily enhanced by surface coatings, treatments or flame retardants.
