Ever considered Cladding?

History can trace the use of Timber Cladding right back to the Dark ages.

It was practical and readily available.

Along with modernisation, the need for an alternative options arose that could be mass produced quickly and cheaply…along came the Clay Brick.

It could be transported quickly over the UK using the railways to areas of highly urbanised, industrial activity – area’s that were lacking in the raw material needed for wooden cladding!


Over the past few years the trend back towards Timber Cladding has been growing in popularity again.  

Being affordable, sustainable and durable it ticks a lot of boxes for current developers. 

There are so many profiles to choose from, from Rustic ‘featheredge’ Our most popular cladding option, to clean and sharp Tongue and Groove and shiplap. 


Oak Featheredge Cladding   Oak Finger Jointed



Have a look at the profiles we offer, if there is something else you prefer…cedar? Larch? No problem, just give our sales team a call who will be happy to help!


Summer is the perfect time to be working on a cladding project so if its something you’ve been considering get the ball rolling today.

He Did It!

On Saturday 25th June Dick Venables crossed the ‘Finish line’ in the center of St Davids following a whopping 216 mile cycle ride from Stafford.

He was joined for the last leg of his journey by his family including Sons Paul and Chuck - Venables Brothers Ltd Directors. 

They were welcomed into St Davids by the mayor, the dean, more family and friends and representatives from the Dalit Freedom Network – The Charity that will be benefitting from all of the generous donations.



Thank you to everyone that supported and sponsored him, the response was overwhelming and his total at the moment stands at over £11,000.00!! Well over the £5000.00 anticipated.

He’s now enjoying a well earned rest and who blames him?!


Thanks for reading!
