Timber cladding finishes

We have a wide range of finishes to suit both contemporary and traditional builds.

Choose from a wide selection of surface finishes – the perfect blend of form and function.

Our timbers are cut, processed and finished in-house to give a wide range of surface options. Whether you wish to improve the durability of your timbers, add fire retardant properties or purely get the right aesthetic, you can read about our range of finishing options below.

Fine sawn

Our fine sawn or ‘off-saw’ timbers are supplied straight from our saw mill and retain the tooth of the grain giving a rustic, natural beauty.


Planed timbers have been processed to give a smooth finish on the visible face. Timbers can also be planed on all 4 sides (PAR) for a high-quality finish front and back. Planed timbers are great for internal and external applications.


Brushed sawn timber cladding is a premium option, ideal for adding a touch of natural elegance to interior and exterior spaces.

Charred and brushed

Charring is an ancient Japanese method of preserving timber. It involves charring the surface of the timber, letting it cool, then wire brushing it to your preferred finish.

Fire protection

Caledonia Timber’s Fire retardant treatment is a non hazardous, water based solution and is the perfect way to fire proof any type of cut timber without being obvious due to its opaque finish.
