Square Edged Cladding
Square edge boards are used in mainly ‘rural’ applications where low price sawn boards produce a rustic but effective finish. Unlike board and batten these square edged boards are normally fixed horizontally.
Variety of tanalised timber materials
There are no specific board widths, although 150mm remains popular because of price and probably because of it’s versatility for many sized buildings. Because of the lap required, minimum of 25mm, it is more economical to use larger widths – we keep 150mm, 200m and 225mm in stock. In planed square edge pressure treated timber we can supply ex. 25mm x 150mm or 175mm widths.
No specific species is supplied; stock is normally supplied as “unspecified softwood”. Where required we can source home grown larch and Douglas fir, with larch being the more durable of the two. Other popular materials include western red cedar, green oak, Siberian larch and air-dried oak.
Square edged timber has to be lapped because changes in atmospheric moisture levels will affect the boards width. Whichever method is adopted allowances must be made in fixing and finishing for dimensional movement (shrinkage/expansion) and for air movement to prevent timber degradation.
