Exterior Wood Cladding Systems

Posted on  by admin

Wood cladding gives a building a natural look. The external cladding is often image-enhancing for the building and the environment, with the cladding also providing the protection required for the façade behind.

The unique Derako cladding consists of slats of solid wood and anodised aluminium SLR profiles, complete with notches, based on the specific project, for the attachment of the patented stainless steel clips. The entire fastening of the wooden double facade is located on the back.

No screws or nails are used and as a result, the appearance of the wood remains intact for a long time.

This prevents damage to the wood and corrosion marks.

The slats of the external wood cladding can be used horizontally or vertically.

When fitted horizontally, the wooden slats have a rhombus/pane profile for a good run-off of precipitation.

A membrane fabric may be placed behind the wood cladding to protect the façade or create the desired colour scheme.

For the finish of the standard available types of wood, including WRC, larch, Oregon pine, thermal wood materials, Derako uses high-quality varnishes that are excellently suited to exterior applications.

The entire construction of the wooden cladding is very resistant to extreme weather and the fastening of the solid wood slats to the clips has undergone extensive testing and has a very high break-out force.

The distance between the SLR profiles is set based on wind conditions, type of terrain and building height and the type of wood chosen.

Accoya® wood is the result of decades of research and development that has brought together a long-established, extensively proven wood modification technique and leading-edge patented technology – acetylation to create a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications. By significantly enhancing the durability and dimensional stability of fast-growing and abundantly available certified wood species, Accoya® wood provides compelling environmental advantages over slow-growing hardwoods (which are often unsustainably sourced), woods treated with toxic preservative chemicals, and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastics, steel and concrete.

All our CHARRED Accoya® products are FSC certified and come with a 50-year warranty on the wood when used above ground; 25-year warranty when used at/below ground level.

Much of Kebony wood’s enhanced performance characteristics stem from the patented modification process they have adopted. Differing from other modified wood products, Kebony uses furfuryl alcohol as its modifying agent.

Furfuryl alcohol is a non-toxic, bio-based fuel that impregnates the wood’s cells through a vacuum pressure treating process.

When the impregnation is finished, the resulting cells are slightly changed, and that results in changes to the physical and mechanical properties of the wood byproduct.

Kebony is beautiful wood recommended by leading architects. Kebony’s performance has been proven in a variety of applications, including decking and cladding, because of its high-quality characteristics.

reSAWN offers Alaskan Yellow Cedar (AYC) as a sustainable exterior material.

Yellow Cedar trees can be found along the North American Pacific Coast from the California-Oregon border to Southern Alaska. AYC is highly aromatic and highly decay resistant. It has exceptional resistance to exterior elements and insects and is easy to work with. It can be used for exterior wall & roof cladding and interior wall & ceiling cladding. reSAWN offers Western Red Cedar because it’s one of North America’s great renewable resources.

In addition to it’s prominence as sustainable exterior material, it’s very durable and is one of the lightest commercial softwoods. It is an expansive and popular tree in the Pacific Northwest region of North America.

The wood is used to build shingles for roofs, siding (cladding) for homes, decks, and furniture among other applications.

Cypress is notable for its color consistency, density and hardness.

Although cypress is a softwood, it grows alongside hardwoods and traditionally has been grouped and manufactured with hardwoods. The oils in cypress’ heartwood make it one of the most durable woods when exposed to moisture conditions causing decay. Cypress trees are natives of the south.

They are found primarily in wet, swampy areas along the Atlantic Coastal Plain from Delaware to Florida.

There’s nothing quite like the look and feel of real wood. When it comes to your home or building’s exterior, there’s also nothing as versatile or as likely to give you the look that you’re after as natural wood cladding.

These 49 exterior wood cladding ideas will help inspire you to create the home or building of your dreams.

This blend of natural wood cladding, glass, and metal creates and appealing exterior façade.

In this case, the architectural timber cladding is installed vertically, reminiscent of a board-and-batten installation, but with a sleeker profile. Photo by Greg Hadley Photography.

For many years, the emphasis for a home’s exterior was what color to paint your siding. Trends are changing, however, leaning toward a more natural appearance for a home’s exterior. In this case, natural wood cladding with a dark, natural look gives this home gravity, depth, and interest that no paint can replicate.

But while most people are thinking of them solely for their interiors, it’s the exterior wood cladding in a shiplap installation that can get you the biggest impact for your home.

With a smooth, contemporary feel, these boards help set this house apart.

If you think that your exterior wood wall cladding can only go one way, think again.

This building features the same natural wood cladding, but in two different installations.

The result is an eye-pleasing dimension for the building that makes it seem as though it’s been built out of blocks – an ideal exterior for this building’s purpose.

Used as accents here and there around the property, the warm tones of the wood bring a lot of dimension to the building. Trends of late have been moving away from polished, shiny, and new-appearing designs.

Instead, weathered, natural, and lived in appearances are gaining traction everywhere.

When a paint color begins to fade, peel, weather, or age, the results are anything but pretty.

But when wooden house cladding begins to weather and age, it takes on a rainbow of different hues, all of them filled with warmth and character.

This home is streaked with rich tones such as gold and chocolate that give the exterior enormous appeal.

Homes and buildings need to match their surroundings to get the best look possible.

That’s why beach houses look so good when left in a natural wood cladding state. The bare wood complements the sand and sky, making the homes look as though they’ve always belonged.

That’s what makes a home finished in timber cladding so appealing as well; it gives you that sense that you’re inside cabin in the woods, no matter where it happens to be located.

A home or building finished in just one material can appear flat, boring, or bland. But by mixing hardwood cladding with glass, concrete, and metal, you can get a building that has charm, depth, and dimension instead.

But by pairing a fun color with natural wood cladding as a background, and that color is going to pop. These shelters are made even more fun with colored accents highlighted against the darker wood exterior.

For many people, horizontal lap siding is too conventional to make the statement they want for their homes. That’s why a different, yet still traditional, look like board-and-batten siding is so attractive.

In this case, the natural wood cladding is installed with traditional battens to bring texture and visual height to the building.

The exterior of your home or building isn’t the only place you can install architectural timber cladding. The underside of porches and overhangs is also ideal for this lightweight material, giving you the appearance of a cottage ceiling.

Windows are what make a home or a building come alive.

So why not put a greater focus on yours by extending house cladding around them? While the rest of these townhouses are brick, the windows are clad in wood to give them greater emphasis and style. When your home has multiple planes and levels, the last thing it needs is multiple colors and exterior styles as well.

Plain wood cladding helps emphasize the clean lines of this home, while the same cladding acts as an accent in front to help let a little light through.

Lightweight exterior cladding doesn’t have to be used all by itself to create a solid wall on your building.

In this case, the cladding was spaced widely apart to create a frame over the frosted glass of this boathouse. The result lets the light in beautifully day or night.

Want something different than traditional lap siding or board and batten?

Why not combine the two to create a unique look instead?

This school is covered first in a shiplap installation, then with a thick batten applied vertically.

The result is lots of interest, depth, and play of shadow over the exterior. When the shape of your house or building is long or unique, consider emphasizing this with your exterior cladding.

Who says that wood cladding needs to be straight, clean, and tightly jointed to be effective?

This bath house has an irregular edge to it by the boards finishing naturally at varying lengths.

The effect is one of organic movement, rather than a solid building.

For commercial buildings, sometimes you need to warm up your exterior a little to keep it from getting too industrial.

What better way to do this than with wood cladding?

Used as an accent and installed in varying directions, the wood helps warm up the exterior design.

For some contemporary outbuildings, like this beach shelter, it can be hard to see where the interior stops and the exterior begins. Covering both with the same wood cladding gives the whole design a crisp, smooth look that invites you right inside.

This modern glass home uses natural wood cladding as accents to help bridge the gap between the outdoors and the interior life within.

Take your exterior wall cladding to new heights by using it on your roof instead. This restaurant makes great use of the natural wood planks to create a roof that appears to be bending and moving around the building, drawing you in. Photo by Kontur, Lasse Haldrup Juul. This large, passive house has many planes and levels, all with a sleek, contemporary feel. By changing the direction of the cladding as it moves over the exterior, you can draw the eye to exactly where you want it to go. Photo by LOGG Arkitekter. Contemporary homes that use a lot of glass and windows in their design tend to look fragile if paired with the wrong exterior material.

This natural wood cladding brings the gravity and visual weight necessary to ground the house and make it look as substantial as its style.

Often encased in the winter snow, this mountain house needs a way to keep the cold away from its design. Natural wood cladding has a beautiful, warm appearance to it that is the perfect foil to these snowy surroundings. The effect is one of comfort and emerging warmth, rather than freezing cold.

They look warm, homey, and a place where people will naturally want to gather, while having the added benefit of fitting in perfectly with their slope-side location. Photo by Svein Arne Brygfjeld. Tourist cabins need to draw the visitor in, making them feel cozy, warm, and right at home.

This is especially true when the cabins are surrounded by harsh winter conditions. This natural wood cladding on this cabin helps to create the perfect contrast to the snowy surroundings.

While some round buildings are constructed of stone or concrete, this home is done in vertical wood cladding.

The result is organic, elegant, and filled with interest and style as the thin pieces of cladding move gently around the circle.

Just when you think that wood cladding can only be used as an exterior covering, it’s time to think again.

In this case, the same lightweight wood cladding used to cover homes and buildings has been used to create an architectural sculpture, drawing inspiration from three seeds.
