As the world increasingly turns its attention toward sustainable building practices, timber cladding has emerged as a standout choice for eco-conscious architects, builders, and homeowners. At Brookridge Timber, a leading Devon timber cladding supplier, we pride ourselves on offering a diverse range of timber cladding options that not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of buildings but also contribute to a greener, more sustainable future. In this blog post, we’ll explore the environmental benefits of timber cladding and how Brookridge Timber is leading the way in sustainable building materials.

Timber Cladding

The Sustainability of Timber Cladding

Timber cladding is a naturally sustainable choice, and at Brookridge Timber, we ensure that our products meet the highest environmental standards. Timber is one of the few truly renewable building materials. When sourced responsibly, it offers numerous environmental benefits over non-renewable materials such as concrete and steel.

Responsible Forestry Practices

At Brookridge Timber, we source our timber from well-managed forests that carry FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certifications. These certifications guarantee that the timber is harvested in a manner that maintains the biodiversity, productivity, and ecological processes of the forests. This means when you choose timber cladding from Brookridge Timber, you are supporting sustainable forestry practices that protect our planet’s precious ecosystems.

Local Sourcing and Reduced Carbon Footprint

One of the key benefits of choosing timber cladding is the potential for local sourcing. At Brookridge Timber, we offer a variety of homegrown timber species, such as Homegrown Cedar and Homegrown Larch. By sourcing timber locally, we significantly reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation. This not only supports local economies but also minimizes greenhouse gas emissions, making it a more sustainable choice for your building projects.

Renewable Resource and Longevity

Timber is a renewable resource, meaning new trees can be planted to replace those that are harvested. This cycle of growth and harvest can be managed sustainably to ensure a continuous supply of timber without depleting natural resources. Additionally, timber cladding species like Siberian Larch and Thermowood are known for their exceptional durability and longevity, which means they need to be replaced less frequently compared to other materials. This reduces the overall environmental impact of maintenance and replacement.

Visual Appeal and Eco-Friendliness Combined

While sustainability is a major factor, the aesthetic appeal of timber cladding cannot be overlooked. Timber cladding offers a natural beauty that enhances the appearance of any building, blending seamlessly with the environment. Here are some of the stunning timber cladding options available at Brookridge Timber:

Canadian Cedar Cladding

Canadian Cedar

Canadian Cedar is renowned for its warm tones and beautiful grain patterns. Its natural resistance to decay and insect attack makes it a durable and low-maintenance choice.

Homegrown Cedar

Our Homegrown Cedar provides the same aesthetic and functional benefits as its Canadian counterpart but with the added advantage of being locally sourced, making it an even more sustainable option.

Homegrown Larch

With its rustic knots and unique grain, Homegrown Larch cladding offers both durability and visual appeal. It is another excellent locally sourced option that supports sustainable building practices.

Siberian Larch

Siberian Larch is prized for its rich coloration and resistance to decay. Over time, it weathers to a beautiful silver-grey, adding character to any building.

Red Grandis

Red Grandis cladding boards are a sustainably sourced hardwood that offers stability and longevity, making it a popular choice for high-end projects.
