What softwood is good for cladding?
Larch is a great timber for cladding and although the British variety works well at a good price, Siberian larch is far superior. As it grows in such harsh conditions, this makes it extremely hard wearing.
Siberian larch is a versatile light softwood like an exterior version of pine almost and therefore has an attractive light colour giving buildings a stylish modern look. It can also work very well for decking boards and outdoor furniture.
