Splayed Weatherboards

As Cypress has a high natural durability, it is well suited to use as an external cladding.

The Splayed weatherboard is a traditional weatherboard profile.

This profile is traditionally produced from unseasoned material, hence a rebate of approximately 10 to 15mm was allowed for shrinkage.

They are now produced from partially kiln dried material, to help with dimensional stability, in either a sawn or dressed face.

A dressed face reveals Cypress' rich colour and distinctive dark knots, whilst a sawn face gives a more uniform colouring with the knots tending to fade into the background.

A sawn face board will generally 'key' an applied finish and is less prone to surface checking than a dressed face board, leading to an increased service life for the cladding and the finish.
