Timber Cladding

Real wood Cladding
Grey Painted Cladding

Many homes built in the 1980’s and newer used hardboard lap cladding. It is often composed of compressed wood fibre, wax, resin, and wood chips. If properly installed, primed and painted it can protect your home for years. But if improperly installed and cared for it is subject to pre-mature rot, deterioration and water penetration which can result in mould growing on the cladding. Because of this homeowners and contractors are choosing other cladding materials that are manufactured to handle the elements. But if you are replacing the bad with new and you need it to match we stock a few sizes and profiles just for those applications.

  • Textured and Smooth lap cladding in 6″, 8″ and 12″ widths in 16′ lengths.
  • Textured beaded lap cladding in 8″ width, 16′ length.
  • Sheet sidings in stucco style, woodgrained with grooves every 8″ inches and plain woodgrain with no grooves. All in 4×8 size

We can also help with priming and painting options to help extend the life of your siding. If you need it professionally installed we will work with you to find a local installer that will get it done for you.
