Cedar timber and, more specifically, cedar cladding UK, continues to be some of the most popular building material available. Used for centuries all across the UK, cedar can withstand weather and time, as well as use and abuse. This durable yet beautiful wood is grown locally and imported, as well. Here are some suggestions for where you can source cedar cladding.
Silva Timber Products have been providing hobbiest and builders all across the UK with quality cedar cladding for decades. You can get shingles and shakes, as well as cladding. But, you can also get trade packs and sawn timber. This company also provides its customers with information on wood care, so that you can get the most out of your cedar timber, and keep it looking beautiful as well.
Silva sells cedar timber cladding in the most commonly used joinery forms. Tongue and groove and channel usually provide the most support for any structure, because of the multiple contact surfaces across the lengths of the boards. Shiplap is another good, sturdy design, though not as good as the first two. Rainscreen, board and batten, trim, and bevel cuts all provide good protection for your buildings, as well. You can find Western Red Cedar and Siberian Larch at Silva Timber Products, all of which are excellent materials for your home or commercial projects.
iWood Guaranteed Quality Timber is another excellent source of Western Red Cedar cladding. You can order it cut to size. Their cladding and timber is planed all around the edges, and VAT is included in the estimates.
You can order Western Red Cedar, British Western Red Cedar, Siberian Larch, Douglas Fir, European Oak, British Larch, and British Douglas Fir, all from iWood. Cedar cladding is durable and beautiful, with a reddish colour that can be preserved with sealants or allowed to grey naturally. It repulses insects because of the tannins in the wood, making it an excellent selection for exterior building projects. iWood offers cedar cladding in 10 different profiles. They are capable of filling hobbiest orders, as well as larger commercial orders.
