What is Shiplap Timber Cladding?
Shiplap Timber Cladding is manufactured from timber that has been pre-treated with a preservative to protect it against rot and decay. The Cladding is made up of horizontal boards that are designed to interlock with each other in a shiplap formation, creating a flat surface that is strong and resilient against moisture. This resilience is what makes it an increasingly popular method for creating an outer layer for the exterior of buildings, as well as for internal wet rooms such as swimming pool areas, saunas etc. The design also ensures that water runs straight down the boards, without pooling which over time can cause damage.
Shiplap Timber Cladding can be used for exterior timber cladding work on a wide range of buildings including domestic and commercial properties, sheds and garages. The super modern style of cladding is becoming an increasingly popular choice for both new builds, as well as refurbishment projects to brighten up dated-looking buildings.
