Carpentier offers a stunning array of oak exterior cladding. The many profiles are available in rough and planed finishes and suited to horizontal or vertical alignment.
Working in our own sawmill, we saw oak cladding sourced from sustainably managed forests. As a native species, oak is an ecologically responsible wood variety and therefore PEFC certified (FSC® certified oak available at a higher price point).
Thanks to our expertise in wood production we are able to supply oak cladding in unusual widths and lengths, including boards exceeding three metres and with or without finger-joints.
Oak is a durable wood and offers sturdy resistance to the elements. Over time the effects of wind and weather will transform oak cladding to a beautiful grey. On the other hand, you may prefer the look of our trendy black oak barcode profile, a vertical cladding that is brushed and treated with two layers of opaque black colour. We extend a five-year guarantee on this finish with regard to moisture penetration, blistering and resistance to dirt.
Carpentier also produces charred oak cladding in our own workshop, a treatment that gives oak an elegant black colour and an appealing weathered finish. We advise using charred oak for interior projects only. For more on this technique, please see ‘charred wood’ in our information on finishes.
