In order to find out what the common timber cladding mistakes are, and how to avoid them, keep reading!

Living in the UK means we come into contact with a damp climate, quite often. Because of this, there is likely to be a build-up of moisture on and inside the wood. We advise refraining from using exterior cladding on east and north-facing surfaces.

Furthermore, it isn’t advisable to install cladding before an oncoming heat wave, nor during one.

If you are looking for durability, opt for a hardwood cladding over a softwood, and look for experienced timber cladding installers.

Once your cladding has been installed, make sure that you finish your wood with a suitable protectant and plan a maintenance cycle to keep the appearance of your wood in top condition.
