What is Larch Cladding?

What is Larch Cladding?

(European) Larch is a consistent pinky-red colour with relatively large dark knots. It is the perfect cladding product to create a rustic look on any project similar to Siberian Larch and Abodo Tundra. With a durability class 3, it has an anticipated service life of 20-30 years (untreated)

We can offer European Larch PAR, with a fine sawn face or with a textured face such as our Riven Effect which will add further to the overall aesthetics for your façade

Features & Benefits

Features & Benefits

Appearance

Rustic creamy colour with a strong grain pattern. Depending on the grade (ie A/B), the boards may include some, or many, dark black knots. We grade all our timber with the CE mark

Movement

A ‘lively’ species, as with all larch, it is prone to distort. Throughout the year, a 145mm wide profile can vary +/- 5mm. Therefore we advise against a TG&V profile, why not have a look at our WB12 profile below

Natural
Durability

Naturally durable timber species because of tannins in the wood which creates a high resistance to decay and rot and its high density

Available
Profiles

The most popular profile is the WB12 as it allows for a hidden fixing. its an all round stable profile compared to the traditional TG&V style

Available
Grades

We offer European Larch the highest grades in the industry, Grade A and Grade B (or ‘Unsorted’). Grade A allows for occasional small knots however many boards will be clear of defects. Grade B allows for frequent and larger knots.

Read some FAQ’s

Economic, attractive and very durable. Superb environmental credentials and insulation properties. Available in a wide variety of densities, colours, strengths & sizes. Wood is a waste efficient and sustainable building material. To name but a few reasons

Yes, all timber will weather after long periods of exposure to the suns UV Rays. Some species of timber will weather quicker than others. We can offer a range of protective coatings wich which will give the most protection against the sun. Ask us for more information and costs

Normally the lead times if you aren’t receiving factory coated cladding is around 10-14 days from payment confirmation. If your cladding is being sent to have treatment factory applied via an external coater this could take longer (such as Sioo:x which has to be applied by a specialist)

The 2 popular profiles we are constantly machining are the WB12 (vertically fitted) and WB10 (both vertical and horizontally fitted) because they offer a secret fixing. The WB12 can also be machined with a centre and offset groove which gives a mixed width illusion

Of course, we think its the best way to make sure you pick the perfect product for your project by seeing the species and profiles up close. See our contact page for our address

Normally a proforma invoice is sent out with instructions on how to pay. More information can be obtained my phoning our accounts department on 01738 587988.

Testimonials

We are delighted with how the cladding turned out and would not hesitate in recommending yourselves and Abodo to others.

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
Thanks for the impromptu tour on Friday. I was very impressed with your set-up there, great to see yours and Martin’s enthusiasm for the business and getting quality products out into the market so we can build with quality materials
Angus MacDonald, Morgan Sindall
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for my order. We received it this morning and I am very impressed with the quality of the cladding and also how well it was all packaged. I would certainly recommend you to anyone who may be looking for cladding in the future.
Steve Holyland, Happy Customer
Fraser we are really happy with the finish and look. Actually the Abodo cladding is main thing people remark and compliment about the house, we’ve certainly been spreading the word about you guys and the Abodo cladding.
