  Good Practice Guide: Timber Cladding

As a cladding material, timber has a long history of successful residential use. Cladding materials and skills needed for building and installation of traditional claddings have changed over the years.  


The conditions for building new timber-clad buildings have also changed over the years. Sites that would have earlier been avoided are now being built, and buildings are also larger and more complex.

Other factors, such as weathertight issues, have become more relevant. Designers have to consider carefully how they will achieve weathertight cladding solutions when traditional materials are being employed to satisfy home owners' demands for complex buildings on more exposed sites.

This guide gives a comprehensive overview of the issues to be addressed by designers and installers of timber claddings. This edition has been updated to mirror the changes to E2/AS1.
