A new self-build home in York

A new self-build home in York

Creating an aesthetically pleasing exterior for a new self-build home in York, the owner wanted timber cladding which would not only have minimal impact on the surrounding area but also be sustainable.

Vincent Timber offered a solution which was distinctive, eco-friendly and offered long term performance. The profiles supplied were VT9B & VT10B and they provided a clean contemporary look with 'hidden' fixings.

Drawing on its innate asethetic appeal, Kiln Dried Western Red Cedar has been used throughout the exterior of the one storey property. The rich warm colour and texture of the cladding has given the home a striking appearance and created a protective and decorative envelope for the building.

Representing the ultimate natural and renewable cladding finish for homes and commercial buildings, Western Red Cedar's durability meant it was ideally suited to the project.

In addition to its natural beauty and durability, Western Red Cedar has impressive thermal insulation properties - ideal for structures where there is a specific requirement to keep energy consumption to a minimum.

As well as being a wholly renewable resource, it is also a perfect carbon sink - soaking carbon from the outside air into the timber fabric of buildings.

Western Red Cedar from Vincent Timber, one of the UK's most knowledgeable importers and suppliers of fine quality timber, comes from CSA, FSC, PEFC and SFI certified sources.
