Timber Battens FAQ

The selection of timber for battens depends on their intended use, durability, and desired aesthetic. Common types of timber that are suitable for battens include Larch, Cedar, and Douglas Fir. Larch is valued for its strength and durability, Cedar is chosen for its resistance to decay and insects, making it ideal for outdoor applications, and Douglas Fir is appreciated for its structural strength and visual appeal. Each type offers unique characteristics, from colour and grain pattern to durability and resistance to the elements.

Maintaining timber battens involves several key steps to ensure they remain in good condition for as long as possible. Firstly, it is important to apply a suitable wood preservative or finish to protect against moisture, UV damage, and pests. Regularly check your battens for signs of wear or damage and address these issues promptly to prevent further deterioration. Cleaning them gently with a soft brush or cloth to remove dirt and debris can also help maintain their appearance. For outdoor installations, ensure that water can drain away from the battens to avoid prolonged moisture exposure.

Yes, timber battens can be used for a wide range of both indoor and outdoor applications. Indoors, they are often used for aesthetic purposes, such as decorative wall or ceiling treatments, providing texture and warmth to a space. Outdoors, they can serve functional roles in fencing, cladding, or as garden features, adding visual interest and providing privacy or shade. The key to outdoor use is choosing the right type of timber that can withstand the environmental conditions, with Larch, Cedar, and Douglas Fir being excellent choices due to their natural durability and resistance to decay.

Super company to work with. I found Mathew and his team really helpful, and the examples they have of different cladding helps no end when deciding what to go for. Great value and the fact the wood is grown, felled and sawed in Wales proves it truly is a local product. Highly recommend this company.
