Timber Cladding & Lining
If you want to bring style and external protection to your building or outdoor space, you can’t go past timber cladding.
Architecture in Australia has embraced timber cladding and commercial and residential properties tastefully embellished with wood boards are becoming more and more popular.
Timber cladding uses specially profiled boards to seal out weather with edge-profiled overlaps.
Outdoor timber cladding can be customised to suit your building and style preferences – it can be done with horizontal, vertical, or angled boards. The use of timber cladding has become increasingly popular due to its classic aesthetic appeal and its wide array of benefits.
Timber cladding benefits:
Sustainably-sourced, natural Australian and imported timber
Versatility and usability
Engineered to be lightweight and solid
Easy to use & install
Strong and long lasting when maintained
A timeless, warm aesthetic
The highly durable material can withstand extreme climates all year round, providing full protection and privacy
Our extensive and superior range of hardwood and softwood timber cladding material options and profiles suit all design types, styles and projects. The perfect contemporary design element to your property, timber cladding works on the exterior of your home, on a feature wall, inside a pergola roof and more.
Increases the resale value of your home or building
Exterior timber cladding can be seen in many homes especially used for:
Shingles and shakes
Internal timber lining - the perfect natural 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, boards and wood panels with a simpler profile can be used for ceilings. Timber lining offers a beautifully finished look, bringing a touch of natural warmth into the interior design of the space.
Boards are available in many timber species suiting all interior requirements including insulation, high walls, flooring or other technical needs.

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.
