Context

Western Red Cedar cladding from Silva Timber was selected for areas of the external facade of a new-build home due to its natural longevity and stability.

The house was designed in a contemporary style and the client wanted a high grade of Western Red Cedar to reduce the number of knots in the cladding and increase the clear, straight grain.

The client also wanted the Western Red Cedar cladding to have a warm coating to create the golden timber finish envisioned from the start of the project.

Product supplied

A number of colour combinations of the stone, render and cedar cladding were considered to strike a balance between naturally warm materials and modern design. Sansin Harvest Gold coating was selected.

Coating timber is the best way to protect it, whether it’s coloured or not. The downside is that it can take a while. The client decided to have the cladding factory-coated at Silva Timber to ensure a consistent finish. Taking advantage of the factory coating service meant that the cladding could be applied in no time at all, saving valuable time on site.
