Scandinavian Redwood is one of the most cost effective timbers to choose for cladding.
Whilst moderately resistant to decay, it should be pressure treated prior to being used for external applications such as cladding, a service that is recommended and provided by Illingworth Ingham M/cr Ltd.
In terms of working properties it machines and glues well; takes nails and screws satisfactorily, stains and paints to an excellent finish, dries well and only shrinks a little.
Physically it has a medium overall strength, low shock resistance and is stable.
