Timber Cladding & Lining
If you’re wanting to bring style and external protection to your building or outdoor space, you can’t go past timber cladding.
Timber cladding involves using specially profiled boards to keep out the weather with edge-profiled overlaps.
For outdoor timber cladding, horizontal, vertical or angled profiling are all possible.
The use of timber cladding has become an increasingly popular choice due to its array of benefits:
- Hardwood timber cladding is made from natural Australian timber offering comfort and beauty.
- It is highly durable and can withstand extreme climates all year round providing full protection.
- Our extensive and superior range of hardwood timber cladding options and profiles suit all design types, styles and projects.
timber lining- internal beauty
When we talk about lining, we usually mean ceiling lining (e.g. eaves or patio). Since weather does not need to be kept out, you can use a more simple board profile.
Lining boards offer a beautiful finish, bringing a touch of nature into your space. Boards are available in many timber species suiting all internal applications.

TIMBER CLADDING CONSIDERATIONS
Ticking all the boxes
At Austim, we know the key to outstanding timber cladding is making sure you choose the right timber and finishing for your unique project.
Here are a few things to consider:
Choose H3 treated timber or Class 1 or 2 Natural Durability rated timber
When exposed to the elements, timber will expand and contract. Allow for this by selecting the correct profile and fixing method
Surface checking happens when timber takes up and releases moisture. You should be aware that the extent to which this will occur depends on your timber choice and the level of exposure to the elements
You can slow the rate of moisture uptake and release by applying a protective coating (products that penetrate or provide a film / coating) to your timber.

To guarantee the correct installation of your product, consult a professional contractor.
