Timber Shiplap FAQ

Shiplap is a type of timber board used for exterior and interior cladding. The boards have a special rabbeted edge that allows them to overlap, creating a tight seal that is both weather-resistant and aesthetically pleasing. This design distinguishes shiplap from other cladding types like tongue and groove or plain boards, as the overlap provides added protection and a distinctive shadow line effect.

Maintaining shiplap cladding involves regular cleaning and occasional treatments to preserve its appearance and durability.

Super company to work with. I found Mathew and his team really helpful, and the examples they have of different cladding helps no end when deciding what to go for. Great value and the fact the wood is grown, felled and sawed in Wales proves it truly is a local product. Highly recommend this company.
