Clare’s Hints & Tips-when using externally cladding remember to purchase some breathable
membrane too. This will help the timber batons and brick work breath, also helps prevent
water penetration. This is particularly important if you are cladding a north facing wall and
in view of the particularly wet windy weather we have had over the past 24 months! Fixing
is easy, first fix batons on wall at intervals recommended by manufacture apply membrane
Then fix second row of batons, you can usually fix to the first set, then clad. Top tip don’t
over tighten screws, you will not only distort the cladding, but also prevent a small amount
of movement the cladding needs..
