British Larch Shiplap Cladding

Our British Larch Shiplap cladding comes in two profiles for you to choose from which are:

  • IWC6 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 135mm face - For horizontal fitting
  • IWC7 - 19mm x 145mm overall, with a 128mm face - For horizontal fitting

The main difference between the two profiles is the face width you get: IWC6 has a 135mm Face and IWC7 has a 128mm face. Both profiles are only suitable for horizontal fitting.

Although it is fresh sawn, British Larch wood cladding, like so many of our other homegrown timbers is stable enough to be machined into profile. The fresh sawn merchantable grade larch we supply is ideal for external use.

The timber also contains knots which adds character to the wood and makes it look like a more traditional material. We source British Larch from fully managed forests where their aim is not only supply great wood but also make the supply sustainable.

Usually the board lengths of our British Larch Shiplap Cladding are randomly 3m and longer when supplied. Where necessary we can try and provide exact lengths to your requirements, if you do have any special length requirements please call us on 01889 597281 or talk to us on the online chat to confirm we can supply them. If we can, all you need to do is enter your lengths in the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page.

Treatments

Most people leave their timber to go the traditional silver-grey in the sun. We recommend talking to www.wood-finishes-direct.com if you would like to treat your timber. If you do decide to treat your timber, it needs to be treated all the way round including the ends to prevent moisture getting in at all.

To get a price, you can type in how many square metres of cladding you need. It's very easy to work out.

We're going to work out the total area of one side of a building, then subtract the windows and doors, then add 10% extra for wastage.

1) For each wall that you’re cladding, measure the full width and the height in metres to work out the total area.

In this (expertly designed) example, the frontage is 9 metres wide and 4.7 metres high. 9 x 4.7 gives a total 42.3 square metres.

How to measure For Cladding Step 1

Total area of frontage = 9 * 4.7 = 42.3 square metres

2) Work out the area of the doors and windows

In this house front there are four windows and a door. Measure the width and height of each window and door, then add the areas together:

How to measure For Cladding Step 2

  • Window 1: 1.9 x 1.2m = 2.28 square metres
  • Window 2: 1.2 x 1.2m = 1.44 square metres
  • Window 3: 1.2 x 1.2m = 1.44 square metres
  • Window 4: 1.9 x 1.2m = 2.28 square metres
  • Door: 1.0m x 2.0m = 2.00 square metres

Total area of windows and doors = 9.44 square metres

3) Subtract the area of the doors and windows from the total area of the wall.

We now have our total area (42.3 square metres) and the total area of the doors and the windows (9.44 square metres). Because we don't want cladding to cover the windows and door, we take the door and window area away from the total area.

Total area to clad = 42.3 – 9.44 = 32.86 square metres to clad

4) Add at least 10% spare for wastage

We recommend ordering at LEAST 10% more cladding than you've measured for to account for the required cutting and shaping.

32.86 square metres + 10% = 36.146 square metres. In this case, we'd round it up to 37 square metres.

Total to order = 37 square metres

Do the same for any other sides of the building, add them together and you'll have your grand total.
