A Closer Look at Featheredge and Its Versatility

As a leading timber supplier in the South West, Brookridge Timber is committed to providing high-quality products to meet the diverse needs of our customers. One of our standout offerings is featheredge boards. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at featheredge boards, their features and benefits, and explore their versatility as a timber building and fencing material.

What Are Featheredge Boards?

Featheredge, also known as feather-edged board or weatherboarding, is a type of timber cladding or fencing material. It is characterized by its tapered profile, with one edge thicker than the other, giving it a rustic and textured appearance. At Brookridge Timber, we source our featheredge boards from UK spruce, ensuring high quality and consistency for ease of construction.

Features and Benefits of Featheredge Boards

  1. Durability: Featheredge boards are known for their strength and durability, making them ideal for both interior and exterior applications. They can withstand the elements, including heavy winds, and are resistant to warping and twisting, ensuring a long-lasting fence or cladding solution.
  2. Versatility: Featheredge boards offer exceptional versatility, making them suitable for various applications. They can be used for cladding buildings, creating fences, or even for decorative purposes such as feature walls or garden structures. With their tapered profile, they allow for overlapping installation, ensuring a watertight and weather-resistant barrier.
  3. Aesthetic Appeal: Featheredge boards add character and visual interest to any project. They offer a timeless and traditional look that complements both contemporary and traditional architectural styles. Whether you’re aiming for a rustic, cottage-style fence or a modern, sleek exterior cladding, featheredge boards can help you achieve the desired aesthetic.
  4. Easy Installation: Installing featheredge boards is relatively straightforward, especially when working with pre-machined boards. The overlapping design allows for easy assembly and ensures a secure and sturdy fence or cladding. For added durability and longevity, we recommend using pine posts and rails, along with a gravel board at the base and a rebated capping on top.

Pressure Treatment for Enhanced Performance

At Brookridge Timber, a leading Devon timber supplier, we offer a range of pressure treatments for our featheredge boards through our ISO 9001 audited process. This treatment greatly extends the service life of the timber by protecting it from wood decay and insect attack. Our high-pressure treatment process ensures that the featheredge boards meet the industry standards outlined in the User Class requirements of BS8417, the code of practice for the preservative treatment of timber. The boards are initially green in color, but we can also provide a brown treated product upon request.

Sustainable and Certified

All of our pressure treated featheredge boards come from sustainable sources and are available with either FSC® or PEFC certification. We are committed to promoting responsible forestry practices and providing our customers with environmentally-friendly options.
