Hardwood Cladding Suppliers: Specialists in Shou Sugi Ban®
Why has hardwood remained a popular construction material? The fact that it is naturally resistant to insects, moisture and rot is a key factor. This has made European Oak, Red Western Cedar, Ipe, Iroko and Accoya® strong contenders for internal and exterior use. It is hard not to be drawn to the natural warmth, unique grains and texture of hardwood.
How to Weatherproof Timber Cladding
External wood cladding will grey with exposure to the sun, which is an effect that many desire. Alternatively, timber oils, varnishes and wood stains can be applied to hardwood exterior cladding to maintain the original colour.
One of the leading names in the market is Exterpark™ who produce hardwood cladding and decking. Their innovative locking system allows the product to be securely installed with no visible fixings. As an approved UK distributor of Exterpark™ hardwood cladding, we are happy to discuss the options and send samples.
