Book Description

Timber cladding is an attractive and sustainable method of providing weather resistance to a building, but has weathering characteristics and a vulnerability to deterioration that need to be anticipated to obtain best performance. Correct fixing and appropriate architectural detailing help to ensure long service life. In addition to naturally durable or preservative-treated timber, chemically or thermally modified wood can also be used for cladding. This Digest provides information on the design and performance of timber cladding, including material selection and detailing.
