Install your cladding yourself

Install your cladding yourself

We have foreseen a series of videos to help you install your cladding yourself. Be sure to verify our checklist with useful tips and guidelines to make your installation a success!

7 steps for successful installation

1. Storage

1. Storage

Store horizontally on a flat surface. Protect the boards from the weather using sheets or store them somewhere dry.

2. Handling

2. Handling

The weatherboards should be carried by two people, holding them by the edge.

When transporting Cedral Click on pallets, always position the weatherboards tongue against tongue and groove against groove.

3. Planning

3. Planning

Plan your work upfront in order to ensure the best possible site organisation.

We also recommend consulting your local town planning regulations before you start working to ensure you have the necessary permits and comply with all requirements.

Follow both the installation and safety instructions.

4. Implementation

4. Implementation

We recommend using the appropriate tools for cutting and drilling Cedral weatherboards.
Circular saw: saw blade with carbide teeth Bosch T141 HM type
Hand-held circular saw: diamond saw blade with Leitz fibre-cement tab

In all cases, sawing and drilling must be done in a dry place and the slat board must be supported. Get rid of sawing and drilling dust straightaway. Remove minor dirt with a gentle household detergent and rinse with clean water.

5. Supporting structure

5. Supporting structure

The wooden vertical support beams have a minimum 65 x 50mm section for installation with a bracket and 65 x 30mm if installed directly on a support.

The maximum spacing between beams is 600mm.

6. Ventilation

6. Ventilation

In all cases, foresee a ventilated space of 20mm minimum and provide a 10mm/m minimum ventilation hole top and bottom.

7. Fixing

7. Fixing

Start at the bottom of the façade by installing a Cedral starting profile and the required aluminium profiles. The starting profile is placed perfectly level and attached with appropriate countersunk screws which do not interfere with installing the first Cedral slat board.

Attach Cedral Click with a staple laid flat on the beam.
Screw Cedral Lap to the beam with an overlap of 30mm.
