High Quality External Cladding Supplies

External Cladding

Nothing adds instant warmth, charm and beauty to a structure like premium quality external cladding. With a range of colours, textures and finishes timber cladding seamlessly blends and compliments a range of building styles and aesthetics.

External Cladding is a building system used to add an extra layer of building materials, such as timber, to the outside of a structure. This technique provides no structural value but is often used as an aesthetic finish to a construction project. In addition to the style, it gives a structure, external cladding helps to protect exterior walls and roofs from moisture, mould and stains while providing an extra layer of insulation and noise protection. 

At Gowan Lea Timbers, we stock nothing but the best cladding and timber products, from Accoya and Ironbark to Certified timber and Composite decking materials. Our selection is vast, ensuring you find the right cladding material for your needs.

What Cladding Do I Need?

The timber and construction industry is constantly developing and evolving. With the number of cladding options available it can be difficult to determine what material is best for your project.

Traditional timber is a common material in external cladding projects and is used for its natural warmth and beauty. Although timber cladding is seen as an affordable solution, natural timber is still hard wearing and durable. With a regular maintenance routine, timber cladding can last for many years while still looking as good as the day it was installed. 

When compared to other cladding materials, timber proves to be lightweight and versatile. This makes it easy to hand, install, remove and update. Depending on your cladding requirements, timber can be used to make a bold statement of used to complement more traditional looks. 

More and more individuals are realising the benefits of composite timber cladding. While initially more costly, many builders have invested in composite decking for their construction projects.

Not only is it an eco-friendly alternative, but its durability and style are also long lasting. Composite timber is erosion, bleaching and cracking resistant. It is also extremely low maintenance and requires little to no care. With a variety of colours and finishes, this wood-plastic composite can be easily matched to a number of looks and styles. 

With decades of collective experience in the timber industry, our staff can happily assist with advice and answer any questions you may have, ensuring you have the right materials for your project.

Bring Life To Your Structure

External cladding acts as a feature to protect buildings, roofs and other structures from the elements. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, cladding has other advantages and benefits to take advantage of.

There is a reason quality timber cladding has garnered the popularity it has. They are often lightweight and easy to install, offering a quick efficient means of adding additional style and protection. In comparison to other solutions, cladding is easy to maintain, requiring only regular washing to keep up its looks and strength. 

Cladding exterior walls helps to protect surfaces against mould, moisture, dirt and stains. Not only does this improve the look of a building, but reduce the chance of damage and degradation.

One of the most prominent reasons many property owners invest in external cladding is their high degree of heat and noise insulation. By reducing heat absorption in Summer and trapping heat in Winter, many properties save on energy consumption.
