Featheredge Cladding

Probably the most recognisable and traditional form of cladding, reminiscent of times gone by. Featheredge cladding creates a charming, rustic finish to any building which looks and sits comfortably in rural locations and brings a fabulous contrast to a more modern or urban setting.

Featheredge cladding, as the name suggests, tapers in thickness from 20 to 10mm.  Traditionally, to achieve the taper a 34mm board would be milled diagonally along the length. Timberpride now prepares Featheredge cladding boards using our 5 head moulder, this gives perfect dimensional consistency and allows us to cut a rebate to make fitting quicker and more accurate.

Featheredge cladding is cut from green timber and seasons in situ.  This means your building will look creamy in colour at first, if you choose not to oil then the boarding will silver in colour, over 6-12 months, as the tannins are slowly washed out and the oak oxidises in all weathers.

We recommend fixing oak cladding using stainless steel screws to avoid rust marks running down the exterior of your beautifully clad building.

Profiles and fixings

Oak cladding will last as long as its fixings if it is done properly.

We recommend non-ferrous (or stainless) fixings with external oak as standard steel screws or nails will give a dark stain to the surface of the boards. This is not a structural problem but most people would prefer not to have the fixing highlighted in this way.

It is usual to fix timber cladding through the face of the boards, with pairs of screws on opposing edges of the board. This helps to keep boards flat and secure for years of trouble free service.

Secret screwing can be used with shiplap and some of the tongue and groove profiles, as many people would prefer not to see the fixings.
