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.
Shadow Gap Half Lap Cladding is a variation of the standard profile without the Tongue & Groove. Instead the timber is rebated at the rear for each piece to slide into one another. This profile is for vertical fixing and creates a pronounced 10mm square shadow gap which uses natural sunlight to visually enhance the building. A modern and striking profile.
