Adding external wood cladding to your garden room provides a stunningly sleek yet earthy look. Ranging from cost-effective and durable to luxurious and long-lasting, there are many possibilities as to how your external finish can look. Whether you’re looking for something matte, glossy or with plenty of texture, there will be a type of external finish out there that’s perfect for your garden room.
Going for an external finish like Cedar would provide a light, softly coloured wood with a matte finish. You’ll notice that cedar boasts individual shades in each piece of cladding, which all blend beautifully together. Or maybe you want to opt for something more cost-efficient solution like Redwood, a durable and eye-catching timber cladding that you can also paint or varnish to create the right shade for you.
Speaking of painting, if you want a harsher colour such as completely black for your external cladding, charred timber is a great alternative that offers a striking finish with plenty of texture.
You can even go for a synthetic material similar such as Composite cladding, with a similar look to timber while also having a durable, consistent lifespan. This type of cladding is also ideal for painting over as well as being available in different shades.
No matter what you choose, however, your wooden cladding will always need to be oiled or varnished now and then (ideally once a year) to obtain its healthy appearance and avoid any problems such as wood rot.
