Shiplap Cladding 180

Using Golden Cypress for your next cladding project creates a world of aesthetically-pleasing opportunities. Think perfect, lustrous and golden lines either vertically or horizontally, encasing your building in a stylish yet durable facade. The natural charm of timber will add character and warmth, while simultaneously providing thermal protection and acoustic absorption. Continuous, clean lines are created with profiled, overlapping cladding boards. And of course in terms of sustainability, Golden Cypress timber is the natural choice – ethically sourced and locally grown!

Benefits of Golden Cypress shiplap cladding

• A truly sustainable alternative compared to other cladding options.
• Naturally durable without added chemicals.
• Exceptionally stable.
• Intrinsically beautiful (like Kauri – lustrous and golden) or allow to weather naturally to a silvery-grey patina.
• Old-growth trees. Slow growing. Tight grain. Fiddleback is common.
• Use vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Design freely!
• Super wide boards, end matched to reduce labour and minimise waste.
• Locally grown and milled – unlike Oregon, Merbau and Cedar, which are imported and very likely entirely unsustainable.

Gold-Clad™ 180

Our Gold-Clad 180 is 180mm cover x 20 thick fully seasoned shiplap cladding with a v-grooved dressed back (ie. it is reversible) available in a number of face textures and finishes. Now available end-matched – saving you time and reducing waste! 

Gold-Clad 180 can be stained or oiled, can be left to weather silver-grey naturally or can be charred in the Shou Sugi Ban style. 

These photos show bandsawn face, natural finish (photo 3 shows the v-grooved dressed back).

Choose your texture

Choose from millsawn face (shows circular saw marks and is our most popular natural finish), bandsawn face (shows saw lines across the face of the board) and dressed face (highlights all the natural variations of the timber). We’ve found that  dressed face suits Shou Sugi Ban scorching processes best.

Shou Sugi Ban

Shou Sugi Ban also known as Yaki Sugi and Shogyu Ban is a Japanese technique of charring or scorching timber, usually cladding or siding, to increase durability and reduce maintenance.

Choose your finishes

We use Woca products, made in Denmark ( All Woca Exterior Oils preserve timber and add UV protection. And on charred faces they help bind the charring from rubbing off and reduce its glossiness.
Choose Woca Grey Exterior Oil for a quick, and consistent, weathered look to all natural timber faces, sawn or dressed.
Choose Woca Natural Exterior Oil for preserving sawn and crocodile-skin faces; and for extra depth and lustre to dressed face timbers both natural and lightly charred.
Choose Woca Black Exterior Oil over lightly charred dressed timber for a most refined and sophisticated effect.
