How to specify:
e.g. PORTA ENDURE Timber Cladding – Shiplap – Cumaru – ENDS12219 – FSC® Certified – with Porta Pre-oil treatment.
Specify a coating system as per your desired look and as per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
Preferred fixing is by cladding screws into the groove, which produces concealed fixing. Porta Endure Cladding can be fixed to the wall with cladding screws (such as 4.0 x 45mm). Lengths can be joined by fixing ends over a batten or stud. Porta recommends specifying a factory pre-oil for all surfaces, end-seal treatment to any cuts and to coat and maintain the external face with a preferred oil.
A maintenance schedule is recommended to preserve the appearance and dimensional stability of timber. To retain the timber’s natural colour regularly apply tinted pigmented coatings, should a silver-grey look be desired, regularly apply a clear unpigmented coating to protect the timber from UV and moisture as per the manufacturers’ recommendations.
