Painted timber cladding is an excellent choice for anyone looking to protect and enhance the aesthetic appeal of their building. At Brookridge Timber, a leading timber cladding supplier in the South West, we believe in providing our customers with the highest quality products that not only look great but also offer long-lasting protection. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of painted timber cladding and our range of BrookClad Painted products.
Thermowood As A Stable Substrate
Firstly, it’s essential to understand the importance of the substrate, which is the layer that receives the coating. At Brookridge Timber, we use Thermowood as our substrate of choice. Thermowood is a dimensionally stable substrate that undergoes an intensive heat drying process, removing all the moisture and resin from the timber. This process ensures that the timber will not react to humidity changes, reducing the risk of swelling, shrinkage, and cracking. Furthermore, it will not secrete sap or resin that can bleed through most coatings, making it an ideal substrate for painted timber cladding.
BrookClad Painted Cladding Range
Our BrookClad Painted range includes Sikkens Cetol WF771 and SANSIN SDF coatings. These coatings are applied under factory conditions to give a perfect finish. Sikkens Cetol WF771 is a highly durable coating that is available in a range of semi-transparent colours in a matt finish. It has exceptional UV and weather resistance and does not flake. It is a low build, low sheen, translucent, water-borne acrylic product. We would recommend ordering this product with three coats. This coating is ideal for timber cladding as it provides excellent protection and enhances the natural beauty of the timber.
Protection For Timber Cladding
SANSIN SDF is another product in our BrookClad Painted range for painted timber cladding. SANSIN SDF provides tough, effective protection for timber cladding. Its specially formulated oils and resins penetrate into the wood, providing outstanding weather and UV protection. SDF has a unique water-borne technology and can provide protection for timber cladding with just one coat. However, we would advise using two coats as this will provide an even more beautiful and richer finish. SDF protects the outside of the cladding, and it also protects the inside by allowing the wood to breathe, which helps prevent moisture from getting trapped in the wood and causing rot. SANSIN SDF is rated as one of the best natural finishes available.

At Brookridge Timber, we also offer a wide range of other timber cladding options, including Canadian Cedar cladding, Siberian Larch, European Redwood, Homegrown Cedar, Cedar Shingles, Red Grandis, Waney Edge, Thermowood, Homegrown Larch, Canadian Douglas Fir, and Thermally Modified Radiata Pine.
