Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are temporarily closing our workshop and all deliveries. We have stock, so will continue to take orders during this time, and will deliver as soon as we are permitted to open again.
TG&S Weathered cladding is an alternative to TG&S cladding by providing a 45 degree slope either side of the join as opposed to right angles. TG&S Weathered is typically fixed vertically but can be fixed horizontally.
TG&S Weathered cladding is an alternative to our TG&S cladding. TG&S Weathered provides a 45 degree slope either side, which gives a softer appearance over the right angled edge on TG&S cladding.
TG is the abbreviation for tongue and groove which refers to the interlocking edge of the boards. The interlocking nature of tongue and groove makes them weatherproof and easy to fit, but it also means the boards can be difficult to replace.
Tongue and groove cladding is one of the most versatile profile types available because of its wide range of uses including gates, garden screens, fencing and cladding. It is typically fixed vertically, although often used horizontally as well in addition to mixed orientation cladding to break up a large cladding expanse.
TG&S cladding looks particularly impressive when illuminated at night.
Durability is a measurement of how long specific species of timber would last if a 50mm x 50mm cross section was left in the ground unprotected. An untreated Oak beam, which is classed as 'durable’, for example, will last 15-25 years depending on environmental conditions. The following scale of durability was outlined by TRADA, the Timber Research And Development Association.
Average service life
More than 25 years
Less than 5 years
Please select your preferred board width.
It's worth noting that the width of your cladding will impact the price. Narrow widths result in more waste and additional workmanship so will be slightly more expensive per metre.
Please select your preferred board length.
We aim to deliver at least 80% of boards at the lengths you have requested. The remainder will be mixed lengths – some longer and some shorter. A request for a high proportion of longer lengths will have a higher cost per metre because of restricted supply. A mixed length order will be the cheapest because of the ease of sourcing.
To keep delivery costs low we conform to standard UK pallet sizes.
Please enter the coverage you require in either linear or square metres.
Linear metres calculates the total metre run needed for a specific board width to cover a known square meterage. If you are not 100% certain of your calculations we suggest you include wastage at either 5 or 10%.
Please select your preferred wastage.
0% means you plan on having no waste and we will deliver precisely the linear or square meters you require. 5 or 10% wastage gives you a little leeway when trimming your cladding.
If you are unsure of the exact amount of linear or square metres you require we strongly recommend you add a percentage to take account of any 'wastage', otherwise you may not be getting an accurate representation of your costs.
