Choosing a Solid Oak Profile

To ensure a quality finish and overall effect, our professional team can advise on the correct profile for your cladding.

All of the following profile choices are suitable for all external cladding. Our passion for quality service, as well as quality products, means that during our initial discussions we will be able to guide you to the correct profile for your project.

Tongue and Groove Profiled Cladding

As one of the most popular types of profile, tongue and groove profiled cladding is a method for joining the cladding panels together to create a smooth, flat surface.

This type of profile creates a strong joint between each panel and provides a very neat overall finish. This type of interlocking joint is a fantastic option for weatherproofing your structure and acts as a good insulator.

HalfLap Profiled Cladding

Our recommendation for Halflap profiled cladding is for use on contemporary new builds and modern extensions. This is because this profile creates a smooth finish and can be applied both vertically and horizontally. Similarly to other profile types, Halflap creates a waterproof facade for your structure.

ShipLap Profiled Cladding

Very similar to the tongue and groove profile. Shiplap cladding provides a comparable look and finish once installed.

Shiplap cladding profiles, however, have a longer lip. The benefit of this longer lip means that Shiplap oak cladding provides additional weather protection and optimum rainwater resistance.

We would recommend this profile for structures and buildings that require greater defence from heavy rainfall.

Shaun – Highly Recommended

“I had the pleasure of dealing with your company on Friday when I was trying to locate two small pieces of oak for decorative purposes. Whilst I imagine in the grand scheme of things, this was a small order, the help and customer support I got from your colleague Sarah was tremendous, even arranging for the wood to be left at an alternative location for collection to suit me. I would like to pass on my thanks, it was a pleasure to deal with such a customer driven business.”

Dawn Wilson – Tremendous Customer Service

“Just a quick thank you to you and your team for the quick turnaround on the oak that was supplied. The timber was just as requested and was of a good quality. We will be using you again soon. Many thanks.”

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with designing and delivering on time the lovely oak A-frame for my coach house. Everything went extremely well and to plan, including personal delivery of some of the oak from Alec, the owner and his son. In this day and age of online sales and aggressive pricing it's a great experience to be able to walk into your lovely oak offices, meet the owner, take a look behind the scenes and at your oak waiting to be hand crafted into your designs. It's a true Cotswold experience and well worth the small premium for the excellent service and to be able to engage first hand with all the processes." Bob Davison
