While a lot of our timber sales in the Brisbane area are for projects such as timber fencing, timber decking and timber flooring, we also offer timber cladding. Timber cladding is a great surface for the outside of your house, garage, shed, cubby house or farm building. We provide hardwood weatherboards that are created from 100% Australian hardwood.
Our timber cladding is fire-resistant and durable, offering natural protection against termites and lyctid borers. They hold finishes well and can last a long time with proper maintenance.
Benefits of Timber Cladding
Timber was the first material used for cladding on houses. It has a traditional, natural aesthetic that is unmatched by aluminium. Any finish looks great on timber cladding, giving you the choice of a painted look or a more natural look.
Timber cladding is flexible in that you can cover all of your home with it or you can choose to only use timber on a portion of your home. If you choose timber cladding for your entire home, it will help you save on heating and cooling costs. Timber is a natural insulator and timber cladding helps keep heat out in the summer and cold out in the winter.
Another benefit to timber having insulative properties is that it can make noises outside less easy to hear inside your home, while keeping your neighbours from having to hear your loud TV or music.
Timber is also an environmentally friendly material. Timber has a negative carbon footprint because it stores carbon. There is virtually no comparison between timber and materials like aluminium, which produces a huge carbon footprint in the manufacturing process.
Timber cladding is lighter than you may think and is really easy to work with. It cuts easily and takes nails well. It is strong and can be treated to provide even more protection against the elements before being installed.
