A very modern and contemporary style of cladding that we offer is Shadow Gap cladding available in a Siberian Larch species. The boards are fitted together to allow dimensional movement and it portrays a shadow gap in between each board creating a smooth, sleek finish. The Siberian Larch shadow gap is a pale yellow, golden colour with a high-quality feel about them. This type of timber is very durable allowing you to shop with the distant future in mind and creates structures that will remain in great condition for years to come. Siberian larch has minimal knots or tight grains because of a slow grown process providing a smooth textured finish. Here at Ruby, we love Larch shadow gap because of the seamless finish it provides whilst providing something different with the exposed groove in between each board as well as the easy instalment process; not to mention it’s made from one of the best looking and durable wood species out there.
When purchasing your Siberian Larch Shadow Gap from us, we want it to stay in tip top condition for many years to come and therefore, want to highlight the need to preserve and protect your boards using Osmo UV Larch Protection Oil. This natural oil-based preservative keeps the colour of the wood by adding pigments which optimally match the timbers natural colours. Its water and dirt resistant and provides a breathable finish that does not crack, peel or blister over time. You will want to apply these individually to the boards before being installed. It’s recommended that you apply Osmo oil every 12 weeks for optimal protection. In terms of fitting and installing your larch shadow gap, you will want to start at the bottom ensuring that the first few boards are exactly level as this will give you a baseline and the other boards can then follow on.
