ICF Claddings & Finishes

Timber cladding the popular option for cutting an ICF wall, both horizontally and vertically. when we talk of timber we are also including the cement fibre boards such as those from James Hardy.   

the boards cannot be fastened direct to the ICF structure I need to be fastened 2 timber batten’s to create a small air gap behind the cladding. On most ICF systems vertical timber cladding requires both a batten and the counter batten.  On Polarwall we have devised a method of using vertical timber cladding with only a single layer of timber battens.  

the same method of using timber battens for fastening a timber cladding is used when using either slate tiles or cedar shingles.
