Wood Wall and Ceiling Cladding

Use this 3-part specification to specify natural and thermally modified wood wall and ceiling cladding for interior use by UFP Edge. 

Wood wall and ceiling cladding refers to the use of wood materials to cover or coat walls and ceilings.  Providing both aesthetic and functional benefits. This architectural feature involves applying wood panels, planks, or tiles to the surface of walls and ceilings to enhance the interior or exterior spaces of buildings. The cladding is made from various types of wood.  Including solid wood, engineered wood, reclaimed wood, or thermally modified wood, each offering unique textures, colors, and finishes.

Aesthetic Appeal

  • Visual Warmth: Wood cladding adds warmth and natural beauty to any space.  Creating inviting and comfortable environments.
  • Versatility: Available in a wide range of species, grains, colors, and finishes.  Wood cladding can complement any design style, from rustic to contemporary.
  • Texture and Dimension: Wood cladding introduces texture and depth to walls and ceilings, adding character and visual interest to rooms.

Functional Benefits

  • Acoustic Performance: Can improve the acoustics of a space by absorbing sound, making it ideal for auditoriums, studios, and residential areas.
  • Insulation: Wood has natural insulating properties.  Helping to regulate indoor temperature and potentially reducing energy costs.
  • Durability: When properly treated and maintained, wood cladding can be highly durable, resisting wear and tear over time.


Used in various settings, including:

  • Multi-Family Projects: Wood is used in living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens for feature walls or ceilings.
  • Commercial: Used in offices, restaurants, and hotels, wood cladding can create distinctive, brand-aligned environments.
  • Public and Cultural Buildings: In public buildings like museums, libraries, and concert halls, wood cladding contributes to both aesthetics and acoustic quality.

Installation Considerations

  • Surface Preparation: Proper preparation of the underlying surface is crucial for a successful installation and to prevent moisture issues.
  • Orientation and Pattern: Installed in various orientations (horizontal, vertical, diagonal) and patterns (shiplap, tongue and groove, staggered) to achieve different design effects.
  • Finishing: To preserve the look and extend the life of wood.  Appropriate finishes (like sealants) should be applied when wood is exposed to direct UV exposure.


  • Regular Cleaning: Dust and clean wood cladding regularly to maintain its appearance.
  • Re-finishing: Periodically re-apply finishes to protect the wood from moisture and UV damage.
