Cladding - Cypress Macrocarpa
Cypress Macrocarpa (Cupressus Macrocarpa – also known as Golden Cypress, Monterey Cypress and Californian Cypress) is an extremely versatile timber that is milled from windbreak trees across Victoria. It is unfortunately extremely common for these trees to be suffering the effects of disease or simply old age and so our use of them stops them going to waste.
It’s an extremely stable timber, is termite resistant and is reasonably durable.
Freshly cut it is a straw colour which will then go grey if left to weather or a number of finishes can be applied to delay that.
We supply cladding in this timber in a wide variety of shapes and finishes, including board and batten, board and board and shiplap with either roughsawn or dressed faces. It’s up to you!
Dimensions: A range of options are available, with the raw stock generally either being 150mm or 200mm wide.
Finish: Up to you!
Cladding - Sugar Gum
Sugar Gum (Eucalyptus Cladocalyx) is a highly durable timber (class 1) with a mid-brown appearance. It makes excellent shiplap cladding, the exact profile of which we can customise for you. Our timber is taken either from windbreak harvesting (which are then regrown) or plantations, both in the west of Victoria.
Dimensions: either 85mm cover or 125mm cover (exact dimensions depending on the profile chosen) in mixed lengths.
Finish: Fully dressed.
Cladding - Southern Blue Gum
Southern Blue Gum is a beautiful looking timber and is durable (class 2) as well as being hard and tough (F27 for structural use with a BAL19 rating). It’s a tree often selected for agroforestry in the southern states because of how quickly it grows and its wide array of uses. For a fast grown tree it’s remarkably dense and it looks good. Being well managed it has a low level of defect and we have it available in good lengths. Looking over the stock you won’t see much, if any at all, sapwood. Dan has graded most of the sapwood out at green milling stage then subsequent gradings (out of drying rack and after machining). So it’s gone through a 3 step identification process for removal.
