    Sorry to open an old thread. What's the colour of this cladding?
    Also did you give an ventilation top and bottom, if so how did you detail it?
     
  4. Did the rainwater shoot out from those rainwater pipes and fly over the gutter :?: :D

    I think it was CO-5.

    Battens are left open at the top and bottom. You fist fix the perforated angle at the bottom then fix the starter trim on top of that. You are then suppoed to leave a 10mm gap at the top, but customers complain.

    Anyone got any experience of the cedral “wood” colours like cedar etc? Was thinking of them for mine. Not sure how close to the real thing they look, but not having to treat them to keep the colour could be handy.

    Our latest Cedral, roof line, flat-to-pitched roofs, porch extension, bay/balcony, rear extension, jobby….

    I'll post more pics as the job progresses and when the scaffold is down. I must say I quite like the anthracite roof line with the CO7 Cedral colour.

    Hi,

    Just reading this thread with interest as I’m about to install Cedral Click on the front gable of my house. Does any one have any top tips or things to watch out for.

    In particular the jointing pattern. I’m not sure how visible the joints will be. I’m thinking I should avoid lined up joints but I’m wondering what the best way of doing it would be.

    Any advice from anyone?

    Thanks.



    Ps.

    Here it is. I having C51 Silver Grey Click from the first floor up. Front only, not wrapped around the sides.

    Will look something like this:

    I've not fitted the click, sorry. I'd imagine that it is very important to get the starter trim and the first plank bob-on. At least with the lap you can adjust if you need to.

    I normally blame my bad levels on the wonky house!

    With the jointing is random best or more regular like below. The max width of the wall is 6.8m and the planks are 3.6m.

    Or is it best just to make as few cuts as possible as the joints are hard to see anyway and must end up on battens like this:

    Go for the brick-bond stagger (first image) if its not too wasteful.

    Thanks.

    Makes more sense. After measuring, I think it’ll look something like this:

    I’ve the done the rear and side of the house as well.

    Thanks for the advice!
