Abodo Tundra Cladding is produced from New Zealand plantation Douglas Fir heartwood, sourced from forests in New Zealand’s Central North Island.
Crafted from Douglas Fir grown strong through the harsh winters of New Zealand’s Central Plateau, Tundra Cladding is a naturally durable timber.
FSC® certified and free from chemical preservatives and solvents, Tundra is a low carbon and Codemark approved alternative to Siberian Larch and Macrocarpa, with a similar aesthetic.
With rustic blemishes, natural knots and grains, Tundra weatherboards assimilate beautifully with natural environments and equally add a sense of contrast to urban situations.
A fine bandsawn face provides a deep grain profile and optimal coating performance that lends itself to a wide variety of finishes and colours.
Delivered pre-finished in any Abodo Protector coating, Iron Vitriol or Sioo:x (for a silvered patina).
Rustic, full of character.
Choose brushed or bandsawn finishes, to customise your design. Brushed brings additional texture.

Yes. For most profiles, we offer various corner, flashing, fascia and finishing profiles to match the cladding boards. Using these accessories will ensure optimal performance of the cladding system in service.
Cladding is bit more technical than decking, so always consult with a professional before starting your project. A Licenced Building Practitioner is required for install.
Abodo cladding may be face fixed or secret fixed depending on the profile shape. Stainless steel ring shank nails or self-drilling stainless steel countersunk screws should be used in all cases. Generally we recommend to fix boards onto a drained cavity system to allow good airflow and optimum weather protection.
All profiles requires a minimum 2mm expansion gap to be left between boards, you need to ensure all cut ends must are resealed with penetrating oil or sealer. Boards should be coated all sides and re-coated regularly as required thereafter.
Refer to the Resources page for more details including installation manual and drawings.
