How to pick the correct panels for your paneling project
Trying to choose the perfect paneling for your next project? Check out these tips and tricks to make the right choices – before the work is done. Here we will discuss different types of wood cladding, how to fix them, and some installation tips that will make your life that much easier.
Wood Cladding Panels
The choice of exterior cladding for your home is an important one. In addition to being visually appealing, it should also be durable, solid, dimensionally stable, and suitable for various weather conditions. For creating healthy, sustainable living environments, wood is an eco-friendly, renewable, and low-impact building material. Thermally modified wood offers numerous advantages that make it a perfect material for outdoor applications such as timber cladding and decking. Many architects around the world prefer thermally modified wood because of its combination of aesthetics and functionality.
Heat-treated wood-like cladding panels
The heat-treated wood cladding of a building creates the look of a modern family home when combined with the building’s shape and when windows are installed. When combined with other modern construction materials like concrete or brick, exterior wood cladding can be used as an accent to add warmth and softness to your building.
Mixing different textures and surfaces, colors and grain patterns, or styles and shapes is a perfect way to generate contrasts, break up long and flat façades, or highlight different planes for added dimension. Dark wooden feature walls against a white finished building can create a striking contrast and deliver modern aesthetics.
Short Wood Panels
Long cladding boards are preferred by many architects and builders, but short lengths can also look stylish. It creates a visually vibrant appearance to have thermal-ash cladding boards on a façade. Your home’s exterior walls will be enhanced by their rich brown tone and gorgeous wood grain, displaying natural hues and reflecting light.
Bottom to Top
The versatility of wood makes it one of the most sought-after materials for everything from decking, cladding, and roofing and can be used in interior design as well. Not only is wood versatile, but it also adds visual appeal and natural beauty to your home and almost all components of a building can be constructed from the same timber for a uniform appearance.
Wood cladding can be run horizontally but it doesn’t always have to be. For a more contemporary feel, consider vertical exterior cladding. In addition to creating the illusion of height, clean vertical lines give your house a sleek, modern appearance. For a more customized design, experiment with different cladding orientations.
Vertical timber boards can cover a facade and even continue on horizontal surfaces, such as decking, steps, and wooden pathways for uniformity. To create a feeling of unity, harmony, and belonging, colors such as thermo-ash can also be used in interior design.
Fixing Broken Wood-like Panels
When you notice wear and tear appearing on your cladding, that’s when you know it needs to be fixed. The best time to fix your cladding is in the autumn but if you are unsure if you need to replace or install cladding, it is suggested to call a reputable company.

Exterior Wood Paneling Installation Tips
Planning is the most important part of your installation process as the wrong planning scheme can result in numerous issues. The wrong installation can result in gaps which leads to leaks and boards not aligning with the ones beside them, ruining the look of the exterior panels. Here are the steps you should take:
- Make sure to measure the walls properly to know the sizes needed for your panels
- Prepare your panels by cutting them ahead of time according to the measurements you have taken
- Make sure your walls are panels ready by sanding and smoothing the walls for uniformity
- Now you may begin adding your wanted wood facade panels to the smoothed-out wall
- Check that each panel has no gaps and if gaps exist make sure to fill them in with the appropriate material
- It is only at this stage panels are painted, but with the right wood-facade exterior paneling, this step does not need to occur
