Abodo Cladding - A sustainable choice

Timber Cladding is timeless and a favourite material for many kiwis builds. There are various timbers that are on offer to provide different aesthetics. When using a horizontal shiplap cladding, this look gives a more traditional and villa aesthetic, whereas vertical cladding is more contemporary and can also feel quite costal.

The Abodo exterior range is often used as a cedar alternative as it is locally sourced which makes it a sustainable choice for the eco-conscious homeowner. Adodo’s flagship feature timber is Vulcan cladding which comes in various profiles and finishes and can be provided pre-primed or coated. Vulcan is New Zealand’s first verified carbon-negative feature timber. The thermal modification process and patented vertical grain structure means Vulcan Cladding has enhanced stability, reduced resin content, and is naturally durable so does not require any chemical preservatives.

Vulcan is now also available in a brand new brushed finish, which is perfect for adding a natural, textured effect to your designs. Abodo has also stated that their timber cladding is suitable for coating in darker colours, so you can keep that dark look that is so popular in New Zealand without worrying about the impact that it will have on the materials.As with nearly all building supplies in New Zealand, there is a delay in supply with a current estimation of an 8-month lead time, so it is suggested you order well in advance to secure your feature Abodo timber.
