Cladding

Amazing, our experts say most of the cladding options used are among the best.

The tongue & groove cladding(walls) used here is the best form of construction for log store walls out of the 4 types [2] we’ve identified on same-size log stores, that you’ll also see getting used on 35% (9 of 26) of all log stores analysed [3], as well as being used on 100% (2 of 2) of the top 10% of log stores [4]. In fact this is the only 2′ x 1′ log store you’ll find that uses a tongue & groove wall [5].

The walls are 34mm thick and we rate this the best thickness and is the only thickness found on same-size log stores [6]. It is used on 27% of all log stores [7] and is also used across 100% of the top 10% of log stores [8] we analysed. 50% of 2′ x 1′ log stores (2 in total) use 34mm thick walls [9], and when taking the average Expert Score of those 2′ x 1′ log stores (98), the Loxley Small Tongue and Groove Triangular Log Store is just above the average with an Expert Score of 100.

1. Pressure Treated: Considered the most durable wood treatment, this is where the wood undergoes a process called tanalisation. This is where the timber is submerged in specialist wood preservatives (such as Tanalith E, this is actually the origin of the word ‘tanalisation’), this is a unique combination of copper and organic biocide ingredients (it is the copper that gives the finished wood the slightly green colour). The wood then goes into a high pressure vacuum tank (the Wood Protection Association has a good article/video on this) to draw out excess moisture and air and force in the preservatives.

This deep penetration of the exterior wood protects it from the elements and all forms of insect attack. Wood treated this way can last many years without being re-treated. The BS 8417 code of practice (this advises on the choice of timber species and the use and application of wood preservatives) says “ penetration to either 6 mm (15 years) or 12mm (for 30 years) has to be achieved in any exposed surface in sawn material.”

It is also worth noting that if cross cutting, notching or boring treated timber during or after installation, ALWAYS apply an end grain solvent-based (or oil-based) wood preservative treatment to the freshly exposed areas, this will maintain the integrity of the protection. NEVER put cut ends in the ground, even if end grain coated.
