Cedar weatherboard vertical cladding system
Vertical cladding with shiplap cedar weatherboards
Western red cedar is recognised in New Zealand as a premium exterior cladding material with a proven record for performance and versatility. With the range of contemporary cedar cladding profiles now available, in both vertical shiplap and horizontal rusticated weatherboards, cedar timber delivers an unrivalled combination of design and durability.
Vertical cedar cladding delivers a unique look to any commercial building or residential home, while ensuring a weather tight envelope. Rosenfeld Kidson has made significant advances in this vertical weatherboard façade type and has developed particularly innovative and robust new vertical cladding systems.
Since the 1950s when architects looked to translate the aesthetic of the Modernist Movement in America, including the much admired works of architects such as Pierre Koenig, into a New Zealand context, vertical weatherboarding has undergone quite a transformation. Koenig’s 'Case Study' houses of that era provided a platform for a new weatherboard style that local architects have adapted to help create a modern New Zealand vernacular.
Vertical cladding evokes a dramatic and sculptural look, lending design impact to any building, while cedar cladding delivers the physical and aesthetic advantages that cedar wood provides. Today's new, innovative vertical cladding systems and enhanced timber profiling and machining methods mean that vertical cedar weatherboards can be manipulated to exploit the full range of possibilities that cedar timber provides.
Select from a range of weatherboard coating options and finishes to further enhance the performance of your cedar weatherboards and to ensure the desired colour tone complements the design and landscape the way it was intended.
