The Exterior Cladding
garage cladding

Cladding underlay
A cladding underlay should envelop the exterior walls prior to the cladding being fixed.

The cladding, 12.5 (1/2") plywood can then be fixed to the studs. All joins should be on a stud and with a gap of 3mm (1/8") between sheets.

The battens
Timber battens 75x25 (1x3) to go over each join. The battens should have a groove each side of the join to stop water being drawn up by capillary action.

Extra battens can also be fixed to intermediate studs. This is for decorative purposes only.
