Difference-between-weatherboard-and-flush-dura-cladding Our weatherboard composite cladding (shown on the left) is designed to be laid with an overlap, whilst our Flush cladding has no overlap between the planks.

The difference between Flush and Weatherboard

Composite cladding can give any low-rise building an instant style update and Dura Cladding from Dura Composites can be supplied in both flush and weatherboard styles to suit most project requirements. Flush external wood cladding planks are fitted together with no overlap between the planks, creating a modern and contemporary finish. The Dura Cladding flush range is available in 3 widths and 4 versatile colours – Cedar, Charcoal, Teak and Grey.

By contrast, Weatherboard external cladding, for houses or commercial property, is designed to be laid with an overlap and is usually used to provide a more rustic look. Also known as shiplap or featheredge cladding, weatherboard cladding planks are often used for properties located in conservation areas or to give a decorative finish to barn conversions or industrial units. Dura Cladding Weatherboard is available in Barn Black colour as standard, but can also be specified in bespoke colours if required. Bespoke colours are subject to minimum order quantities and extended lead times and should be discussed at the earliest opportunity with a Dura Composites representative.

Available in a variety of colours and finishes

Our composite cladding planks are available in a variety of colours, to complement their natural appearance. From barn black and charcoal to more earthy tones like teak and cedar, there is an option to suit every application. Whether for low-rise commercial or domestic use, or new build and refurbishment projects, our external wood cladding planks are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions and temperature ranges, thanks to their extremely durable plastic composite.

Please note that colours shown are representative only; actual colours may vary slightly. Whilst Dura Cladding is colour stable, there will likely be some initial colour lightening as the product weathers, which typically occurs in the first 3 months.

Our manufacturing process results in a high level of colour consistency although some variation in colour may be apparent across planks from different production batches.

What style of Cladding do I need?

When it comes to searching for exterior wall cladding, you’re likely to come across a number of different terms, some of which actually refer to the same style of cladding. To clear up any confusion, and to help you make the right decision for your project, we’ve included some info below on the different profiles available:



Weatherboard cladding (also known as featheredge) is designed to be laid horizontally with an overlap. It’s ideal for applications where a traditional appearance is preferred, such as barns, outbuildings, lodges or domestic properties and is available in Barn Black.



Featheredge is simply another term for weatherboard cladding, and is designed to be laid horizontally with an overlap. Again, it’s ideal for those seeking a traditional appearance for their barn, outbuilding, lodge or domestic property. Our featheredge boards are our Type 150 Weatherboard product.



Unlike weatherboard cladding, flush cladding has modular fixings that enable the cladding to be flush to the wall. It has a much more modern appearance than weatherboard cladding and our range of flush boards are available in a range of attractive colours and sizes, and in types 150, 200 and 250.



Shiplap cladding essentially offers the same surface appearance as flush cladding, which is favoured for more modern applications. Our Flush range comes in a range of attractive colours and sizes, and in types 150, 200 and 250.

Dura Cladding has a traditional wood appearance, long lifespan and is 100% FSC® certified

Our external wood cladding planks use a unique recycled timber and plastic composition and is developed to provide the very best of both worlds; an attractive appearance with a 25 year design life and low maintenance costs when compared to natural wood.
