Cedar rusticated weatherboard cladding system
Rusticated weatherboards for modern or traditional horizontal cedar cladding
Traditional rusticated horizontal cedar weatherboards are a derivative of the bevel back weatherboard and have a shiplap with a distinctive scalloped rebate allowing water to fall off. Rusticated weatherboards deliver a classic look and provide reliable performance. Reminiscent of rural buildings, and originally used for exterior cladding of barns, sheds and farm buildings, this cedar profile is renowned for its strength and robustness.
The profiled finish of rusticated weatherboards also accentuates the attractive natural features present in western red cedar, showcasing the beauty of this timber as a cladding material. Modern machining methods have enabled cedar timber suppliers to develop innovative new horizontal architectural profiles with a variety of lap and rebate detailing, providing a range of finished weatherboard alternatives to suit almost any application.
For this reason rusticated weatherboarding has come of age and is no longer simply the preferred choice for cladding of rural buildings. This weatherboard type can be seen throughout the country, frequently featured as top end house cladding in award-winning architecture.
Select finish alternatives, either bandsawn or dressed. Also select from a range of tinted wood oils specifically formulated and factory applied to your cedar weatherboards. This will ensure that your building’s cladding system is compatible with the design intent and environment, while also improving performance and durability of the cedar weatherboards. .
