Popularity of cladding
Cladding timbers have become increasingly popular for adding character to existing buildings. The increase in timber frame extensions and new structures has also increased demand. Whether you have a self-build, loft conversion or house extension there are options for differing profiles and timber species
Fibre Cement cladding
Firstly, in addition to our timber cladding we have been stocking fibre cement for 6 years. We are now the James Hardie Premier Stockist for Devon and Cornwall. The James Hardie premium product is the HardiePlank which we stock in 19 different colours. Therefore, combined with a range of aluminium and fibre cement trims the HardiePlank represents a contemporary option for cladding.
Tanalised cladding timber and 15 Year Treatright Warranty
All of our tanalised stock of TGV, Shiplap, Shadowgap and Loglap is machined from redwood pine and pressure treated with new generation Tanalith-E preservative. This means these products are backed with the Manufacturer’s 15 Year Treatright Warranty.
Shiplap and Shadowgap Cladding profiles
Shiplap cladding includes three well established tanalised redwood pine profiles, including 125mm and 150mm widths. Therefore in 2017 we also added tanalised Shadowgap as a new option. Shadowgap, also known as angle channel cladding, is machined so that each board fits together with adjoining boards to allow dimensional movement. The lap joint on this board is machined to provide an interesting contemporary appearance.
Loglap Cladding Profile
Finally, our Loglap cladding profiles are machined from quality redwood. By using three different profiles means we can provide a product suitable for large or small structures. We keep the mid-sized 25 x 125mm Loglap in stock, other profiles are available to special order
