Weatherboard Cladding Crockerhill
Weatherboarding is the practice of external cladding. Conventionally, weatherboarding is usually done with timber, however, other materials can also be used such as uPVC and fibre cement. There are several kinds of profile and finish obtainable contingent on aesthetic requirements. Weatherboard cladding is usually laid with an overlap, unlike flush cladding which requires boards to be fitted together with no overlap.
There are several species of wood that could be used for weatherboard cladding in your Crockerhill building. Woods are usually considered suitable if they have a natural resistance to decay. Woods considered naturally resistant to decay include traditional British timers such as elm, chestnut, oak, Western red cedar and larch. These woods have been used for centuries. Imported timbers such as Canadian western red cedar and Siberian larch have also gotten a lot popular over the years and are used in achieving a more contemporary look.
Oak and cedar are known for their durability, which means they are also a bit pricey. The thickness of boards would also influence their cost and longevity.
