External Cladding

Cranwood External Cladding

Wood is a natural and sustainable material and is increasingly being specified by architects for use in modern residential and commercial buildings. The increase in the use of external timber cladding on buildings in particular has been quite dramatic, as architects combine its beauty and sustainability to build in an environmentally friendly way without any loss of the aesthetic value of the building.

Colour Warranty

Untreated timber will weather and discolour over a period of time if it is left at the mercy of the elements. In order to maintain the colour of your timber cladding we recommend that you have it pre-finished by Cranwood Industries before installation. A whole range of traditional and contemporary colours are available to choose from.

A colour warranty is also available if you wish to avail of this.

Western Red Cedar External Timber Cladding

Western Red Cedar is currently one of the most popular external/internal claddings, due mainly to its vibrancy of colour, its resistance to decay and high level of durability.  If it is left untreated it will weather naturally to a silvery grey or darker grey colour; alternatively it can be prefinished and stained before installation to avoid the weathering process.

Western Red Cedar Cladding can be machined to any of our profiles (see profile page)
or even sawn to a featheredge board to give the rustic look.
