Douglas fir feather edge is a popular choice for those looking for a traditional and rustic style exterior cladding for a building or garage. Douglas fir is a strong and durable softwood timber and is a superb alternative to Green Oak.
There are a vast variety of colours within this cut of timber, including oranges, pinks and browns. With time and weathering, Douglas Fir will gradually turn a striking silver-grey colour and can darken considerably once cut. Please do note that Douglas is a natural product, and splits, cracks and fissures can occur during the drying process.
If you are looking for beams that contain minimal knot/ defect, it would be beneficial to ask for your timber to be strength or appearance graded. All Douglas Fir will be supplied overlength, for on-site final cutting.
Douglas Fir Featheredge cladding is available in the following sizes:
Ex 32mm x 200mm
It is available in a variety of widths, and you would usually allow for an overlap of around 25-30% of the board width.
