Wood cladding and its types – how to make the right choice?

Wooden cladding is an eco-friendly and really convenient way to update your interior or
exterior. Although the cost of wood panelling is higher compared to plastic panelling, it is more
favoured by their compatriots for their longevity and positive effects on health and home air. First of all,
wood is a natural material that does not emit toxins or cause allergies, and it can
to help protect against excess moisture or excessively dry air.

Outdoor cladding

Wooden exterior cladding – excellent heat and sound insulation, so it can be used in the city,
for both urban and suburban house decoration. In addition to decorating the façade, they also trap moisture
excess air, protecting the building from wind, sun, rain or snow. For the manufacture of exterior cladding
northern pine, spruce and Siberian larch are the most commonly used timber species, as these
The wood is extremely strong, durable and surprisingly resistant to the elements. For lower
the number of branches and the number of grooves, spruce cladding is the most common choice. However, when choosing
for exterior cladding, you should look carefully at the different types of profiles.

Rhombic cladding

Rhombic cladding is most commonly used for soffits, but can be perfectly
look and feel when designing a fence. Their distinctive design will provide a remarkable aesthetic appearance and
most importantly, it will last a really long time. Rhombus-shaped cladding does not usually have cut joints
parts, known as spandrels, which is why experts are reluctant to recommend them for the exterior of buildings.
Rhombic wooden exterior cladding can be either rough or solid.
Rough paneling absorbs paint easily, so if you plan to paint it, we would recommend
choose siding with uneven surfaces.

Cladding with rounded edges

Cladding with rounded edges can be used for both decking and fencing.
Sometimes rounded-edge cladding is chosen for a house, storage shed, gazebo or other building
for decoration, but it should be borne in mind that the thinner edges of the boards at the joints

Facade cladding with spindle

This type of cladding is the most common choice for building cladding. Specially cut
grooves for joints – plugs – allow the façade cladding panels to be joined very tightly, so
a residual gap can be avoided, which can accumulate moisture due to environmental influences.
Moisture build-up in joints increases the risk of mould and rot. However, we should keep in mind,
that wood has the property of both shrinking and expanding, so façade cladding must have a small gap
at the joints. If you don’t leave a gap, the expanding cladding may warp over time or
splinter. Facade cladding with spindle can be not only plain, but also convex, like a log
a shaped surface.

Interior cladding

Cladding is also very popular indoors for its health benefits and
home air. First of all, wood is a natural material that is not harmful to humans and can
to help protect against excess moisture or excessively dry air. Usually at home, they
used for wall or ceiling finishes. Pine cladding is also particularly loved for its distinctive pleasant
smell. The finest quality interior paneling is made from Scandinavian pine or spruce, Siberian
larch. Trees that have grown in harsh conditions tend to be much more robust and resilient,
which makes their wood even more valuable. Interior panelling is available in both plain and
coarse, it is unvarnished. Some prefer to use untreated for finishing
siding, while others choose varnished, painted or
stained interior panelling. As with exterior cladding, interior cladding is divided into classes.

  • The first class, Class A, includes wood cladding with very low
    or very slight darkening and hollowing, which are naturally caused by branches.
  • Middle, AB, claddings may have much more noticeable
    defects such as cracks, scratches, more pronounced darkening or hollowing of branches
    in places, colour fading.
  • Wooden cladding that has highly visible defects such as chipping,
    mechanical defects or accumulations of resin in Class B.
