we often get asked how timber cladding is installed. although each project is unique and the details will vary from build to build, weve outlined some general guidelines to help showcase the process for getting timber cladding installed. timber cladding is much easier to work with than other building materials, and as a result, you can progress much quicker with a build. timber cladding allows you to dream up intricate designs and shapes as it can be cut and shaped to your preference.
boral hardwood timber cladding showcases the beauty of popular australian timbers, including blackbutt and spotted gum, and is an economical finish for both new and old buildings.

increasingly timber is being specified for cladding, horizontal and vertical louvre blades and brise soleil. often when used outside, timber can deteriorate quickly, however due to accoya being the most durable and stable of all wood species it remains looking pristine for longer over any other woods used for cladding larch, western red cedar or oak.

6 . stone thickness. the maximum dry weight of cladding stones ranges from 2500 kg/m3 for limestone to 2750 kg/m3 for granite. therefore, for general guidance purposes only a figure of 3000 kg/m3 can be used to calculate the maximum likely load to be carried bs 8298: 2000.
joinery will perform better when made from a stable and durable timber such as western red cedar. mortise and tenon joints are still used as the primary sash stile-to-rail joint for most window types. this involves a tenon, or tongue, from the rail being fitted, glued and pinned into a slot in the stile figure 1 .

dwellings with a timber frame superstructure require certification indicating that the design has been checked by an nhbc timber frame certifier. see appendix 6.2-a. design that follows the guidance below will be acceptable for external walls of timber framed dwellings, substantially timber framed dwellings and wall panels.
cutek timber preserving oil: use cutek timber preserving oil for long term protection and low maintenance. it soaks into the timber, and if the timber becomes very dull, grey or dirty, it can be readily cleaned back with a timber cleaner, and the colour is restored with more oil. no sanding or stripping is ever needed. paint:
timber cladding provides a highly attractive and durable external finish which is renewable, reusable, biodegradable and contains minimal embodied energy. russwood have extensive experience in advising clients on material selection and careful detailing, which are key to ensuring that every project looks fantastic, and meets its performance objectives.
cavity, structural support and battens. whether a solid masonry or timber frame structure, tdca recommends that this cavity shall be a minimum of 21mm wide. however, the width of cavity is generally decided by the style and width of the cladding board. the more open the cladding style the wider the cavity required to protect against moisture penetration.
detail design - timber cladding. basic principles. in principle, any timber cladding should be designed as a rainscreen. assuming that the cladding will always be subject to some penetration of moisture, a separate protective membrane will be necessary behind the cladding largely protected from wind, rain and daylight by the cladding itself.

as 2796 timber hardwood sets out details of grade descriptions machining grade limits and tolerances for external cladding. the standard does not specify profile details or overall dimensions and these will vary between individual manufacturers. grades for softwood - sawn and milled products are set out in as 4785.
guidance is available in british standard bs8605: external timber cladding part 1: method of specifying. avoid sharp edges on cladding. a minimum radius of 3mm on the bottom of horizontal cladding will help shed water and prevent it tracking up the back of the cladding.
from our sawmill in the scottish highlands we manufacture cladding to each clients specification, with a wide range of customisation options including: species, profile, fire retardant treatment, size and grade.
current details are mainly focussed on providing thermal details for both new build and retrofit situations. to view drawings that are within our books, please visit our online books section. the documents are long and contain many drawings and thermal modelling information.

timber weatherboards are synonymous with new zealand homes and small commercial buildings, and have been used as a cladding for over a century and a half. when timber weatherboards are installed correctly, they provide an excellent cladding that offers a wide design scope with many colour and profile options.

bs1186:3 1990 timber for and workmanship in joinery is the current british standard relating to cladding. the definitions of quality largely relate to visual quality and the size and frequency of knots.
timber cladding is best used, then, in areas which have relatively stable weather patterns. if you live in a climate that is prone to experiencing regular peaks in heat or excess rain and humidity, timber cladding might not be the best option for you. timber is a very durable cladding material, but it has its limits.
