Siberian Larch Shiplap Cladding

We supply two profiles of shiplap cladding which are both suitable for horizontal fitting. These profiles 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

As one of the knottier timbers that we supply, Siberian Larch is very popular with people who want the traditional timber look. Larch is full of character and the colour can vary between a pale-reddish brown a brick red which only adds to its allure.

Due to Siberian Larch’s natural habitat it is more than capable of dealing with the worst the British climate has to throw at it. The timber's natural resistance to movement and rot make it ideal for use as external cladding on barn conversions, sheds and anything else you require.

We usually supply cladding in random lengths however if you do want exact lengths please ask us by calling 01889 597281 or talking to us on the online chat. If we confirm that we can provide you with the lengths you want please enter them into the “Special Instructions” box on the shopping basket page.

Treatments

Be sure to read through our treatment information by clicking on "Treatment Guidance" above. It talks about sealing, preserving and protecting the timber from the sun's UV rays. Here are quick links to the products we recommend:

Fitting Guidance

Our fitting guidelines are designed to give you a starting point on how to fit your shiplap cladding and we recommend that you consult an expert fitter to advise on your actual scenario.

Be sure to read our treatment guidance as treatment needs to be applied prior to fixing your cladding

Breathable Membrane

Consult a fitter to determine if your scenario would require the fitting of a breathable membrane between your wall and the cladding. This membrane stops rain getting to the wall, but allows moisture to escape, helping to prevent internal condensation and mould that can come with it.

Treated Softwood Battens

Treated softwood battens (available from our cladding accessories pages) are most commonly used to fix to the wall (or on top of the breathable membrane) to then fix your cladding to. Shiplap cladding is to be fixed horizontally only, so your battens need to be placed vertically, at around every 600mm (60cm).

Fixing the Cladding

** Whether you use nails or screws, it's important that they are stainless steel, or silicone bronze ARS, so that the natural tanins in the timber will not corrode them. Never use iron nails for fixing timber.

The timber is designed to only be fitted horizontally with the start of the running lip across the width of the timber at the top. To stop your wood from splitting it’s best to pre-drill any holes and then hold the boards with the head of the screw.

You can also use nails, preferably ring-shanked for extra grip, and again stainless steel so they don't corrode. For lower-density species like cedar, consider using nails with larger heads so the cladding doesn't pull through.

As already stated, these are just ideas to get you thinking about installation and you should consult a professional installer before fitting your cladding as every scenario is different.

Treating Timber Cladding

All of our timber cladding is provided untreated.

For best results, cladding should be treated before it is installed to ensure application of the treatment on all sides and ends of the boards.

We recommend Wood Finishes Direct for all of your treatments. We have found them to be well priced and their telephone support and advice is second to none. We highly recommend giving them a call.

The following information is from Wood Finishes Direct in relation to treating timber cladding.

When it comes to treating your timber cladding, there are three areas of protection to consider.

  1. Sealing against moisture movement - Sealants are used to help prevent moisture entering the wood causing it to expand. Kiln dried timber like European Oak will definitely need to be sealed, and for other timbers it is highly recommended.
  2. Wood Preserver - Helps to prevent rot and protects the wood from insect infestation and mould.
  3. UV Protection - The ultraviolet rays of the sun slowly bleach external timbers. UV protection oil helps to keep the natural colour of your timber for longer and prevent it from turning silvery grey so quickly. Some people like their timber to weather and prefer the silvery grey look so it’s completely down to you.

The following links will take you straight to the products on Wood Finishes Direct's website:

Product to Seal and Preserve

To address Sealing and Preserving, they recommend applying one or two coats of "Wood Preserver Basecoat - Barrettine Premier Universal Preserver" before installation to seal against moisture movement and protect it from mould and insects.

Product to Protect from UV Rays

Then to optionally delay weathering, two coats of OSMO UV Protection Oil. There are different colours of OSMO UV Protection Oil available, with names like 'Cedar' and 'Oak', but these colours are to make other timber look like the stated species. We recommend the 420 clear version which interferes the least with the natural colour of your timber.

Some commonly asked questions

How long does the cladding take to deliver?

Because we are sourcing our wood based on demand to ensure the highest quality, delivery may take from 14 to 17 working days once your oder has been placed with us.

What are your delivery costs?

We calculate our delivery costs based on how far away you are from us, to get more information on this please check out our shipping costs page HERE.

How do I receive a delivery?

Our deliveries are carried out by a third party haulage company. Because many of our customers have forklifts on-site, the standard delivery trucks often do not have cranes (or hi-abs) on them. For this reason you'll need person-power available to unload your delivery. We are able to quote for crane-offloading if need be. Please give us a call.
