VARIOUS TYPES OF TIMBER CLADDING

September 08, 2017

Timber cladding is an execution that’s put on the exterior of homes which protects the walls from moisture.

Wood cladding has been used by builders since the 1800s, the styling of timber cladding is a distinct look and offers character to housing.

Below we have listed the different types of timber cladding:

Tapered lap

This cladding is installed horizontally and each piece slightly overlaps and the cladding then gets nailed in the wall just above the overlap. It has a tapered thickness and widens at the bottom.

Notched lap

This timber cladding has the same taper as the previous one however, the top and bottom are notched so the pieces fit together perfectly when installed. Again, the cladding is nailed to the wall just above the overlap.

Shiplap cladding

This timber also has a notches overlap, however it also has a slight angle to make the cladding different and give it some character. This type of cladding is nailed directly through the face of the cladding.

Chamferboard/Dutchlap cladding

This cladding also has a notched design and is nailed through the face to secure it.
