Cladding Produced at Lengths to Suit the Site
Another benefit of sweet chestnut is that it usually needs to be finger-jointed, and so this process involves removing defect material from the parent board and using the finger-jointing process to rejoin the sections to provide continuous lengths. This reduces long term waste and also means cladding and decking can be produced at lengths to suit the site, instead of using standard lengths and creating lots of off cuts.
Finger-jointed material also benefits from a reduction of the inherent tension which is present in all timber boards, thus making the end product very stable and not prone to excessive movement. This is not to say there will be no movement, as all timber is a natural product which will move with the seasons.
