Why We Love Wood Cladding on Shipping Containers
Friday 14 April 2023 Filed in: General
Because it looks so good! Give your metal shipping container a charming finish with the addition of exterior cladding. Create the look you want with a choice of woods, horizontal or vertical clad, and even roofs and doors that complete the look.
Wood cladding from Containers DirectWhether it's a simple storage unit, or a complete conversion, wood cladding can transform the appearance of a metal box into an attractive wood cabin. For rural locations and Greenfield sites, cladding can satisfy planning permission requirements, blend in with the beauty of its surroundings. If you are trading from your container it will look more professional and appealing to potential customers - and even become a talking point as interest in converting shipping containers continues to grow.
We are industry leading experts in producing high quality, visually appealing cladded shipping containers. We can clad any size shipping container, from 8ft upwards, and offer a wood matching service if you have special planning permission requirements. This has enabled a number of our clients permission to site a shipping container on land otherwise off-limits.
Our most popular products where clients opt for wood cladded containers are the MenuBox catering unit, the ModiBox office, especially when they are being used as a home office for the back garden, and other container conversions for the garden - from home gyms to garden rooms for relaxation, hobbies or socialising.
To cover all budgets we offer three standard types of wood cladding
Our premium woods include Waney Edge, Siberian Larch and upon request we can finish off with wood staining for a natural colour finish.

Roof modifications - sloping roofs and living roofsA sloping roof can also help with planning permission, but also serves a practical purpose of allowing rain water to drain off the container - especially when combined with guttering, or a living roof. All these features look great on cladded shipping containers, and no one will spot there's a shipping container underneath!
