Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) when installed has a variety of reds, pinks & brown colours making it one of the elites when it comes to attractiveness. The timber can also be left untreated several years to achieve a classic silver colour. Western Red Cedar’s durability is second to none in terms of timber cladding, it is extremely resistant to decay splitting & movement once installed. All of Duffield’s Western Red Cedar is sticked & dried on site to less than 20% moisture content. This, along with the timbers colour & physical properties, makes Western Red Cedar a go-to choice for external timber cladding.
Splayed Cladding or also known as Rainscreen Cladding is made up of rhomboid shaped boards equally spaced apart to form a decorative appearance. Unlike most other types of cladding, splayed boards are not interlocked or connected which means that the cladding is not waterproof. For this reason splayed cladding must only be used in front of a fully waterproof surface. A clean, contemporary horizontal cladding.
