Reclaimed wood wall cladding
From grey through to warmer colours, always with character, reclaimed timber wall cladding brings, as our reclaimed wood flooring, a radical change to any interior or exterior. Reclaimed from old buildings, in its first « life » the wood cladding or weather-boards build up a naturally aged patina thanks to exterior weathering.
Reclaimed timber wall cladding
Reclaimed from old buildings, in its first « life » the wood cladding or weather-boarding built up a naturally aged patina thanks to exterior weathering. This natural patina is hard to replicate in new wood, so using our reclaimed wood wall planks will make your project look really authentic and « save the forests » rather than using valuable new resources when it makes so much ecological sense to adapt and re-use salvaged materials. This natural patina is hard to replicate in new wood, so using our reclaimed wood wall planks will make your project look really authentic.
It’s pine and oak that form the majority of BCA Antique Materials’ original wall cladding and weather-boarding being sourced. However it is important to note that we also take our reclaimed wood from other sources, and convert it to wall cladding, in particular using reclaimed oak wagon boards and reclaimed pine wagon boards.
The most striking and exciting recent new building using BCA’s wagon boards for exterior cladding is the architectural award winning « Cowan Court » at Churchill College at Cambridge University in England. See these links:
– Reclaimed railway wagon boards in oak
– Cowan Court Wood Awards
Specified by 6a Architects in England, BCA Antique Materials supplied reclaimed oak wagon boards following their detailed specifications that required us to partially re-mill for a lap-jointed assembly. Three floor levels of the new Hall of Residence are clad vertically in their natural untreated state, with a ventilated space between them and the facades water-proofing membrane and associated details.
At BCA Antique Materials we are able to supply products adapted to specific requirements thereby enabling professionals to specify their sizes and details. Discover our antique oak beams. However the decision-making and specification of these materials for exterior cladding in respect of the relevant country’s building regulations is entirely up to the client and their professionals.
