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 Secret Nail Cladding works in the same way as standard creating a pronounced 10mm square shadow gap which uses natural sunlight to visually enhance the building but is modified to have an extended top half to the rear of the piece allowing for a nail to be covered over after fixing. A modern and striking profile free of any visible fixings.
