    Understanding Weatherboard Profiles

    During the design process it’s helpful to carefully consider the profile of your timber weatherboards as this will have a significant impact on the overall look and style of your cladding solution. Please visit our cladding comparison chart to see which profiles are available in vertical or horizontal lengths and their suitability for your project. Our main types of profile are bevel back, shiplap, rusticated, board and batten, and splay cut.

    Bevel Back

    This classic profile is well established in NZ and is still a popular choice for many homeowners. The bevel back has an overlapped look that creates a striking horizontal shadow line that will enhance both older properties & more contemporary builds. The bevel design also ensures that air can still penetrate the construction at the laps ensuring any excess water can drain or be dried by the circulating air. This makes it a highly durable solution suitable for even the most exposed environments or challenging climates.


    The rusticated profile is another classic type of horizontal cladding that has its origins in rural buildings. This popular profile is available in a variety of styles, from the traditional scalloped edge to the sharper grooves and deeper shadow lines of more contemporary designs. The rusticated profile is often the profile of choice when showcasing the natural features of real timber, it also performs reliably in terms of water resistance and durability.


    The traditional shiplap profile of overlapping timbers has a long history in NZ and remains popular because of its distinctive styling in both vertical and horizontal finishes. The shiplap profile continues to offer great value for money with superior timbers providing outstanding stability and a look that suits both traditional and contemporary designs. The shiplap profile allows boards to contract and expand without warping making them the ideal choice for more extreme climates or coastal locations.

    Board and Batten

    The board and batten profile is a traditional timber cladding system composed of alternate wide vertical boards and narrow wooden strips (battens). It offers a dynamic and versatile solution that has seen a resurgence in popularity recently. Creating a distinctly contemporary look with negative detailing and shadow lines it is well suited to a variety of modern building designs. Affordable, flexible and available in a range of woodgrain and smooth finishes this profile adds great visual appeal and can also be used as a partial siding with textured walls or other types of facade.

    Splay Cut

    The splay cut or angled-cut weatherboard profile is made up of boards that are cut at an angle to provide a chamfered edge on each side, producing a parallelogram shape. These boards are equally spaced apart offering a clean, contemporary shadow slat appearance. An affordable and versatile solution, the dynamic look of a splay cut weatherboard will add drama to an exterior or feature wall.
