About the TDCA
The Timber Decking & Cladding Association is an independent technical and advisory organisation. It is focused on the promotion of quality materials, installation best practices and aftercare of timber decks, associated landscape structures and timber cladding.
Established as the Timber Decking Association in 1999, the Association has been the source of the information and guidance that has helped to grow the market for outdoor wood significantly.
In 2009, the Association was encouraged by the supply chain to play a similar role for timber cladding. The Association became the Timber Decking & Cladding Association. This web site is part of our campaign to improve knowledge and understanding of the timber cladding choices now available. Providing up to date generic technical information and guidance about all aspects of cladding design is a core aim. This will be reflected in new a new Code of Practice which is under development and cpd learning tools that will come onstream in 2011.
