    Square-edge cladding boards are simple 25mm sawn planks available in a range of widths which can be overlapped to form horizontal cladding or used vertically to form Yorkshire boarding or open-board cladding. Generally, square-edge cladding boards are supplied green (wet) with a sawn finish although the boards can be planed smooth if required. All cladding species are available for this profile although we do not recommend finger-jointed oak and sweet chestnut.

    *It is important to consider the potential dimensional shrinkage and movement of green timber. Depending on the species, boards may shrink by 10% over the first two to three years as the wood dries. If exposed to hot, dry weather before or soon after fitting, boards are likely to cup, warp and split. The best time to fit cladding is in the autumn or winter.
