Pressure Treated Scandinavian Redwood Ship Lap Cladding
The quality of the outer cladding of the building is key to the aesthetics of the overall project.
That’s why we supply quality Scandinavian* Redwood cladding as standard throughout all our ranges.
Scandinavian Redwood (pinus sylvestrus)
Unmatched for its beauty, Redwood is naturally resistant to weathering, cupping, and insect damage. Redwood timber is a more durable, slower grown and stable wood than whitewoods. It has excellent strength and does not warp or shrink like other timber species. Redwood has a beautiful straight grain, consists of an open celled structure and contains little or no pitch or resins.
The only disadvantage with Redwood timber is that it is expensive. However in order to make a quality long lasting outdoor structure, quality timber is required in its construction. Outdoor structures made with Redwood timbers retain their appearance ten, fifteen and twenty years after construction. Redwood has many advantages over other types of timber and is often used in the interior of homes and restaurants because of its natural beauty
Naturally untreated Redwood has an in grown resistance to wood decay and insect infestation. To ensure that our Redwood timber products remain looking perfect for many years to come, all timbers are protected from wood decay, attack by wood boring insects and fungal infestation. All the Redwood timbers are pressure treated with Tanalith E wood preservative. Tanalith E is applied in sealed vacuum vessels, which forces the preservative deep into the structure of the wood. Tanalith E has proven to be the most effective wood treatment preservative available in the UK today
We make sure all our Redwood is sourced from forests within the FSC scheme
