SLATE – For a natural look to match the property roofing.

CLAY – To match the property roofing.

CEDAR SHINGLES – A traditional look with a lifespan of 30 to 50 years.

GALVANISED STEEL – A plastic coated, leather grain finish and a cost-effective way to clad a roof that will last.



LARCH – Larch softwood cladding is resistant to rot and decay. It is not necessary to treat larch softwood. Surface turns a silver over time.

OAK – Oak hardwood cladding is a long-lasting material and perfect for use in heavily weather-exposed areas. No painting or staining is required.

WANEY – Waney, unlike other types of timber cladding, has minimal impact on the environment during its lifespan. This is because less energy is required to produce Waney in comparison to man-made alternatives.

COMPOSITE – Composite materials provide a rot-free alternative to traditional materials, such as timber weatherboarding, but retain the visual aesthetics of a natural timber. Composite materials come coloured so no painting or staining is required.



OAK – An oak frame shelter.

TREATED SOFTWOOD – A treated softwood frame shed with softwood weatherboarding.

These options are not inclusive. If you are interested in any other materials, please email us or give us a call to discuss your requirements further.
