As timber cladding becomes more popular and in demand, more varieties and styles become available. We have both home grown and Siberian larch materials available in the shiplap profile. Perfect for buildings like sheds, garages, and exterior walls of buildings, as the boards create shadow lines underneath each board creating a modern and stylish design whilst providing a watertight structure. Large amounts of our homegrown larch are sourced from Devon and efficiently managed forests improving carbon footprint whilst maintaining sustainability throughout. The Siberian larch is a very durable and vigorous type of cladding, perfect for those exterior buildings and walls. Moreover, it has oily, resinous properties and so does not need pressure treated.
Larch shiplap is such a versatile profile of cladding as it can be used inside as well as outside and for various reasons including kitchen walls, bathroom walls, sheds, and exterior walls to name a few. They can be used inside due to larch being an untreated material. The crisp, sweet smells of larch add a different feature to the boards which add to the appeal and beauty of them. In terms of length and sizes, we have Siberian Larch shiplap available in a standard length of 3m and homegrown larch available in 1.8m, 2.4m and 3.6m. The instalment process of larch shiplap is relatively easy due to the lightweight nature of the boards. To help with this, we have available either tongue-tite® Plus screws or 50mm nails which will secure the shiplap boards in place. These are the best fixings available to ensure only the strongest and most durable structures are made from our larch shiplap cladding.
Although our Larch Shiplap is untreated, it’s important to complete regular maintenance checks to keep it in top condition. In terms of stains and oils, we have available Osmo Larch UV Protection oil which will help to keep the natural colours and grains in the wood. It regulates moisture levels to ensure rot and algae resistance. This will ensure a longer life and better quality of appearance for longer periods of time.
