I like to extend my external timber window frames to match the "aftermarket" fitted cladding edges. Can i use cypress timber post ie 100x100 and cut it to size or will that wood just split and warp even after it has been painted? It situation is north and west side of the house and cops the full sun. Thanks Andreas

Hi @Andreas,


Welcome to the Workshop community and apologies for the slow reply. 


Let me tag one of our very helpful members in @Brad to see if he might like to share his thoughts on the most appropriate timber to use. You might like to also share some photos of the cladding edges you are looking to match to get some further tips from members.
