Larch Cladding Systems

European Larch weatherboards for exterior cladding

European Larch offers an exciting natural timber cladding option, sourced from well-managed forests.

Larch has a pale appearance and is a warm mix of colours, from light reddish brown through to golden brown. When weathered the colour changes to a muted grey tone. With clearly marked annual growth rings, a straight grain and inter disbursed knots the timber displays attractive figuring with a contemporary look.

It is available in all Rosenfeld Kidson’s Vertical, Rusticated, Bevel Back and Board & Batten cladding systems. Customised corner and jamb detailing have been developed to effortlessly blend with our range of compliant 28mm thickness Vertical and Horizontal Rusticated shiplap weatherboards.

The extreme climate from which Larch originates produces slow growing conditions, resulting in close growth rings and a fine grain. Larch also possesses high resin content and coupled with its naturally high density, results in excellent durability properties.

These characteristics produce a timber of great depth and texture that is a unique alternative to other timber claddings in the market. Larch is a very different softwood to Cedar and offers a popular rustic, Nordic appearance. This timber is best used when a more configured grain structure, rustic knots and a uniform pale weathered tone is desired. Some surface checking does occur with Larch, adding to the rustic aesthetic.

Factory oiling in a our Larch-specific range of Dryden WoodOil clear, blondes and silver-greys further compliment this distinctive material.

Rosenfeld Kidson only sources Larch in ‘Unsorted I-III’ grade. This grade is the highest commercially available ‘appearance’ grade of Siberian Larch. The ‘Unsorted’ term is misleading and although the name would suggest that the timber has not been sorted, it actually means the opposite. In fact the timber has been sorted into the highest three appearance qualities - I,II & III or ‘firsts’, ‘seconds’ and ‘thirds’ (or simply described as I-III).
