Timber FAQ'S

The Larch Cladding Company has an expert team on hand to find the right cladding solution for you. Please see more information about our services below or contact our sales team.

Larch is an oily, resinous, and dense wood that does not need any treatment to maintain it. Left naturally, the Larch will turn to a silver grey over time depending on the amount of sunlight and rain exposure the cladded area receives. To maintain its original colour, larch can be treated with a clear oil which will need to be coated every 1-2 years depending on the oil that you choose.

We have set lengths of 2.44m, 3m and 3.66m, these are minimum lengths. Usually they will be a little over. 3.6m is our max length. We do have a cross cutting option that can cut any order to a specific length.

Stainless steel fixings are best to be used to avoid the screws rusting and causing black marks on your cladding. Screws are better than nails as it is easier to undo if you need to take a panel off for any reason. Nails/screws should be at least 2.5 times the thickness of the board.

Our Larch and Cedar is sourced as close as possible to our mill in North Wales. This would be from sustainable forests in North and Mid Wales predominantly. We do not supply Siberian Larch. We hold FSC certification for all of our timber.

We are happy to send samples through the post or they are also available to be collected from our showroom on site after a conversation with our sales team.

We can deliver nationwide. Charges will depend on location and quantities and type of vehicle required. Collection from our yard in North Wales is also an option.
