What is feather edge cladding? 22 March 2019

This cladding is an ideal solution for people that want a bit of a traditional appearance without being to rustic. Unlike the waney-edge, the edges are straight. The boards are sawn finished. For feather-edge boards to be formed, it gets sawn a rectangular section at an angle, which this then result in two sections tapered across width. All cladding species are available for this profile.

To create a good-looking rustic appearance the featheredge cladding boards get cut from one board on the diagonal to create two tapered boards that are overlapped. This look will build a large amount of charm, because of the sawn face proudly on show and the distinct shadow lines.

Have you heard of weatherboarding or feather edge boarding? If yes then that is what featheredge classing is also known as. It is similar to roof tiles, it’s a sawn board cut on the diagonal to produce tapered board that is overlapped when fitted.

Its important to make allowances for at least a 35mm overlap for each board (50mm is best) when your making your calculations because its designed to be laid horizontally. The ideal time to fit cladding is between months of October and April and 7- 14 days of delivery because if it is exposed to varying weather before fitting the cladding is more than likely to cup, warp and split. Due to the natural characteristics it is important to follow fixing guidelines when you do fit the cladding.

To keep your future maintenance to the cladding to a minimum we recommend that the fine sawn face of the board is exposed and no the planed face. This will also give you the traditional featheredge finish you are looking for.

The most common used range of fencing is the feather edge fencing panels. They are high in strength and quality because the panels are manufactured from sawn timber. It will have a golden-brown surface colour has it will be dipped in preservative and it will help protect it against the environment. You will have a clean finish on one side because featheredge boards are overlapped and battened down together on one side of the panel. These types of fencing panels are inexpensive solution if you want to create security and privacy.
