What is the process of installing oak cladding on a residential property?

Home Improvement

Every installation process for oak cladding begins with the preparation step. At this point, the surface must be clean, dry, and structurally sound before the remaining steps can progress. 

After preparation comes the framing. Here, it is time to install a suitable framework or pattern so that your oak cladding can be fixed onto this surface. Then, there is weather proofing where professionals apply weather-resistant barriers or membranes to protect against adverse weather conditions. 

All of these steps are very important and play a significant role not only in getting the most out of the process but also in ensuring longevity and durability.

After weather-proofing comes the main oak cladding fixing process, where the oak cladding boards are secured using appropriate fixing. This can be done using stainless steel nails or screws.

Lastly comes the finishing. This is the step where the protective finish or oil is applied for additional protection. Finishing also helps with improved aesthetics.
