Cladding is a sustainable, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing building material with an ultra-low carbon footprint

The choice of timber species available is as varied as the profiles. However, attention should not only be paid to the durability of the timber but, in particular, the detailing of the profile, as both need to be considered in order to ensure longevity of performance

Glenalmond Timber is an industry leader in cladding innovation, offering structurally finger jointed, cut to length options up to 12m long. This allows us to remove unsightly butt cuts and increase the yield from the tree, as well as removing all waste from the site. We can offer innovative cladding textures such as driftwood or panel beaten aesthetics and provide a full paint or stain finish on all sides with two or three coats. We have also recently installed a CNC planning line, the first in the UK.

These new options allow us to innovate by looking at new species. For example, FSC English Sweet Chestnut, a species seldom used due to the poor availability of longer cladding lengths, but one that is just as durable as Oak. We finger jointed all the Sweet Chestnut for the award winning Stonehenge Visitor Centre. We also finger joint the majority of our Scottish Larch as this species is known for rotary growth, leaving it more susceptible to twist and bow than some other species.

Thank you – The help you gave us was truly amazing – you said yes to what seemed an impossible request in a heartbeat and what a difference it made – The house looked beautiful and we’re all so proud of what everyone achieved – the family were utterly overwhelmed by the sheer force of goodwill that everyone showed them

Gordon Whistance, In House Designer | BBC DIY SOS

It was an easy choice to move to using Glenalmond Timber’s floor joist system. It gives an improved specification for many aspects of the build, including acoustics, ease of installation, lack of bounce in the floor as well of course as cost effectiveness. A great all-round product, it’s a lot more than just a joist and the level of service from Fraser has been a joy. Whenever you deal with people such as that, the business process becomes a pleasure

Steven Streets, Technical Manager | Muir Group

The larch cladding we got from you is outstanding. We absolutely love the smooth riven effect. Thanks again for supplying the cladding

Adam Turner, Happy Customer

Just a quick message to say thanks for organising the Larch cladding for me – the building looks great and the clients are very happy. Ewan also mentioned the machining was perfect – much better than we currently have. Thanks again and im sure ill be back in touch for more material
