Shiplap Cladding in Suffolk

 

When it comes to cladding, we’re often asked a handful of the same questions. To clear things up, we’ve decided to answer them here:

 

  • What is tongue and groove cladding?

 

Tongue and groove cladding is the name given for timber cladding that has an interlocking structure. Amongst the most popular types of cladding, tongue and groove boards can be easily fixed together to provide a dependable structure. Particularly good for exterior buildings, many of our customers rely on tongue and groove cladding when building sheds, cabins, and other fixtures. Offering an impressive protection against the rain, tongue and groove cladding is a suitable choice for a wide range of projects.

 

  • What is shiplap cladding?


A traditional and historic type of cladding, shiplap refers to cladding that’s made up of overlapping timber boards. Originally, this solution was used in the construction of boats (where it earned the name ‘shiplap’) and is now an approved method for finishing internal and external buildings. With recesses cut into each end of the boards, it’s easy to slot them together to create a nicely watertight structure. 

 

  • Is tongue and groove better than shiplap cladding?

 

The question of whether shiplap is a better form of cladding than tongue and groove depends entirely on the kind of project you’re working on. If you need greater protection against the rain, for example, then the larger lip that’s created when using shiplap will be a better solution. Effectively creating an additional layer, shiplap cladding is particularly effective when it comes to constructing resilient exterior buildings. Tongue and groove cladding, on the other hand, is a popular choice when it comes to internal cladding.  

 

It’s worth bearing in mind that both types of cladding look very similar once installed and what makes one better than the other depends entirely on the kind of shielding you’re looking to achieve.
