Waney edge UK Larch Cladding is the most traditional method of cladding a building.  Boards are sliced straight from a log with each individual board having one waney edge with the bark on and one square edge.
A building is clad by overlapping boards by 40mm to 50mm leaving the Waney Edge showing on the bottom edge.
UK Larch is rated as moderately durable so if being used externally you should take advice on the best way to protect your Waney Edge Cladding from decay and insect attack. Brookridge Timber can offer a micronised pressure treatment process which will give your cladding a 30 year warranty
