About Our Cladding

What is Timber Cladding?

As the name implies, timber cladding is a method that is utilised to clad buildings or establishments to create a more beautiful finish. Technically, it is meant to protect the walls against moisture and the penetration of air. It is considered an environmentally friendly method and it is becoming popular among architects and builders. Timber cladding is sometimes referred to as weatherboards or weatherboarding.

What does Champion Timber offer?

We offer a large range of different external cladding profiles, in a number of different species to suit your requirements. These species include Cedar, virtually free of knots, defects and splits and naturally durable timber. We also have profiles available in Thermowood which is a modified softwood with a double-cycle heat process for maximum durability equivalent to UC4 (suitable to be buried in the ground). Our joinery quality Redwood is a pressure preservative treated to protect against rot and insect attack. Finally, we can also offer Sapele claddings, which is strong hard-wearing timber, naturally resistant to rot and insect attack.

We offer a free cross-cutting service so we can cut to length any timber you require, to reduce wastage!

If you cannot see what you need, we can machine to order your exact requirement, this takes up to 4 working days. We just need either a sample or a drawing to get us started.

We also offer a range of Millboard composite cladding, Millboard cladding is inspired by the beauty of nature but is built to outperform it. It is moulded from selected timbers making it look exceptionally like real wood, whilst avoiding the ongoing maintenance associated with natural or wood-based products. The hand colouring of each board recreates the subtle nuances that only natural wood can give. The moulded profiles reduce labour and wastage yet retain the effect of individual boards.
