Why choose timber for your walls?

Exterior timber wall cladding serves as a protective skin for your building. It shields against all sorts of elements, from the sun’s harsh rays to heavy rain, hail, or wind. Timber-clad walls are naturally beautiful and can be coated to achieve the colour of your design dreams. Sourced from sustainable Australian forests, timber is a great, eco-friendly alternative, and it’s completely reusable and biodegradable.

Features of exterior timber wall cladding

Timber-clad walls are durable and long-lasting, with a classic look that will never go out of style. Our timber comes in a variety of species, including Spotted Gum, Ironbark, Blackbutt, and Tallowood, which can be cut into different sizes and wood shapes. We also offer timber cladding surface finishes for better performance and even more design flexibility. Visit our showroom to see our full range.

Spoke with Rez - Right off the bat it was fantastic customer service, even considering what I was after was quickly realized as far outside of my current budget for the project at hand.With the service I received over the phone however, I'm certainly thinking of spending some extra money through Market Timbers for a much higher quality panel. I mean, that IS what they do!Rez helped outline a panel that would work for me and quoted me a price, we had a discussion around the timber and some of the services they would be able to provide when it came to my new home office desk project.What I appreciate even more than what many would call the 'Standard customer service experience' was that he took the time to answer some of my more newbie questions and explain things for me. I'm far from familiar with any kind of woodwork; projects in Highschool are probably the most recent I've worked with any kind of wood. (Highschool certainly lifetime ago)Rez did a brilliant job of assisting me; with both his patience for my questions and the quality of his woodwork knowledge it provided me with some much-needed direction on my new desk project.From a slightly hungover Saturday morning call that could have gone any way - it was a fantastic experience. 10/10 would recommend giving the blokes down at Market Timbers a buzz if you've any timber related projects coming up!

The cork flooring is a fantastic product. We are situated 5 hours from Melbourne but Asad made our purchase easy, with technical advice, sending samples, helping us to estimate the quantity of flooring needed and arranging freight, which isn't easy at our location. Happy to recommend Market Timbers and their products.

Asad and the team at Market Timbers have gone above and beyond to help us with lovely cork tiles for our renovation. Even though ours was a pretty small job they gave us great service and even located extra stock of a sold out product for us when we unexpectedly fell short with our original order. Highly recommend Market Timbers.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Got a question? Here are the answers to some of the questions we get asked a lot. If you can’t find the answers you’re looking for, send us a message or give us a call. We’re happy to help.

    In today’s market, the cost of timber cladding for a home’s exterior is less expensive than aluminium cladding. You can easily find many companies that manufacture and supply exterior wood cladding at different prices. But nothing is quite like the range at Market Timbers.

    Vertical timber wall cladding is a fire-rated, highly attractive, and durable finish that is hard-wearing, reusable, biodegradable, and weather-proof. It is the most affordable option for anyone on a tight budget. Or, if you want to add a dramatic accent to your walls, a western red cedar can be a great option apart from hardwood cladding. Our sales team is happy to provide a custom profile and design consultation service to create existing new products for volume orders.

    Softwood is now considered the best timber for exterior wall cladding in most homes due to its distinct profiles, unmatched beauty, and natural finish. It is also considered to be one of the least expensive woods to produce. Some contractors will only use softwood as the primary material in their exterior cladding projects because it is less durable than hardwood lining boards. However, it is still much cheaper than the other types of external timber cladding. Like shiplap cladding exterior products, softwoods are much more sustainable than Australian hardwoods, with 80% of all timber being soft on the surface. They’re also resistant to bacteria and moisture, which makes them ideal for decking and exterior projects like wall cladding, or spotted gum cladding. For instance, a softwood native to Australia will require much less maintenance than softwood from other places. Make sure you know what softwood is best suited for your home before purchasing any timber cladding materials.

    To ensure the best, most natural-looking timber wall cladding for your project, plan a layout before installation. Assemble the base of your deck with blocks placed in a level row. Nail through packing strips so you can check for level before attaching boards to the frame completely. If using compressed wood or plywood, ensure the ends are sealed or painted; if butting timber together, use nailers. Cut and assemble siding as needed, then attach according to instructions included in the package.
