Cladding is a sustainable, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing building material with an ultra-low carbon footprint.

The choice of timber species available is as varied as the profiles. However, attention should not only be paid to the durability of the timber but, in particular, the detailing of the profile, as both need to be considered in order to ensure longevity of performance.

Glenalmond Timber is an industry leader in cladding innovation, offering structurally finger jointed, cut to length options up to 12m long. This allows us to remove unsightly butt cuts and increase the yield from the tree, as well as removing all waste from the site. We can offer innovative cladding textures such as driftwood or panel beaten aesthetics and provide a full paint or stain finish on all sides with two or three coats. We have also recently installed a CNC planning line, the first in the UK.

These new options allow us to innovate by looking at new species. For example, FSC English Sweet Chestnut, a species seldom used due to the poor availability of longer cladding lengths, but one that is just as durable as Oak. We finger jointed all the Sweet Chestnut for the award winning Stonehenge Visitor Centre. We also finger joint the majority of our Scottish Larch as this species is known for rotary growth, leaving it more susceptible to twist and bow than some other species.
